Love our Lurker days 2014



Lurking? Blurking/blorking?
So, a good year ago I began blogging. And from what I have learned about blogging and lurking there might even be a pattern to it. You read blog entries, feel for the authors or enjoy their entries and think about some of them. Maybe the thoughts urge you to do more. ... And BAM(!), here you are and blog in your own blog. I think somehow this happened to me. Warning! Blogging can be highly addictive.

And there is more to it. You blog, read other blogs, comment sometimes, read more, comment more, but notice you don't comment everywhere. And BAM (!) you are a lurker. But what does it make us, if we also blog? I always thought the pure lurker only reads and does not write (yeah, I can hear your thoughts!), and therefore those who do both are somehow a mix of blogger and lurker, hence ..... blurker. 

I think I'll try to impress hubby with that, when he returns home and asks how my day was. Usually this is pretty obvious, as I spend most of my time with our little baby girl and I love that. Nevertheless, I'll try to astonish hubby: "Well, I have been blorking around today!" Hope he doesn't misunderstand it as something dangerous, because he forbids such things quickly then!


Anyways, I really want to thank you for reading here in my blog. I appreciate your interest and do enjoy a 'hello', or your thoughts in a message. And please, feel hugged by me, because that's what I'd like to do  ...




For me having readers, lurkers and commenters, is absolutely exciting, because I can see in my strange blogger-map that I have readers from around the world. So, once again, welcome and thank you for stopping by, commenting, saying hello.


Last year I had no greeting for my readers here, because I was too new and did not understand much about blogging and this community. .... Oh, wait, uhm, I don't claim I do understand more now, but I learned about LoL-day and I am glad that I can say hello to you and hope you do the same.


And, I wish you all a great second half of the week!

  4. Not so much a lurker, as an ineffectual comment making person.

    1. Hi Lillyanna, welcome to the blurker club. :) We are so happy that we have our little one and we can virtually see her grow by the minute and she’s so cute and adorable. … I better stop here, because usually I need another fifteen lines to finish when I start about her! :)

    1. Hi DF, blurker sounds better than the alternative, blorker. Let’s put it that way, hubby was not impressed, but I believe many bloggers are blurkers. I am one too!

    1. Hi Roz, thank you, Happy LOL Day! I had wondered whether you would blog on your tablet, but you wrote that it is really difficult to do so. Besides, I am always very happy that you are here as a reader and commenter! Mathilda is doing great, growing and more active than ever.

  19. Hi Ni Na!

    This is my first visit to your blog (but not the last). Enjoy your little one they grow up way too fast. My two baby girls are both on their own now, but they are still my baby girls. There is a saying "your son is your son til he marries his wife, but your daughter's your daughter for all of your life". I have no son, but I know that is true of my two daughters!

    Happy LOL day. I am adding your blog to my followers and looking forward to getting you know you better.

    Blessings,
    George

    1. Hello George, Happy LOL Day. Thank you for stopping by and for the advice about our baby, too. She has made us so happy and is our biggest joy. It's great that you have two daughters, I am one of three and I think that the relationship between my dad and all three daughters is special, too. Even after marriage this did not change. I did not know the saying, but I like it a lot!

      hugs

      Nina

      PS: I don't want to appear like a complete dork, but I tried to find your blog and ended on your google+ page. I am pretty sure that I have been to your blog before (lurked), if I did not mix this up completely. So, uhm, how do I get there again? google+ and I are not really compatible. :) Sorry for this.

    2. me, too...when I click on a name and it goes to google + I have no idea what to do - so if I don't know the name of the blog I can't find it... :-) I want to be able to say hi to all who kindly visited me...

    3. Hi Terpsichore, thank you, I am very glad that I am not alone with that problem, and I'd also like to say hi to all who visited.
