Peek a Boo

I see you.......

Every day over 100  people slip in to "The Journey" - sit and read for a while and then leave.  That's ok.  It makes me think a little bit like going to a library.  You slip in quietly - read quietly - and leave. 

This is the 3rd year that I have been participating in LOL day - something Bonnie over on My Bottom Smarts started 6 years ago !!! LOL stands for Love Our Lurkers.  Not my favourite choice of words for you silent readers - but there ya have it

The whole point to this day is to try and lure you out of your lurkers mode and get you to leave a comment.  

But I was thinking about that... IF this is a day to celebrate our lurkers - why make you DO something?? AND if you comment - then you are no longer a lurker right??? so then you can't be celebrated right???

So I am gonna break with convention (what else is new??!!) I am gonna thank all you lurkers for lurking.  Every morning when I come to the computer and click on my numbers and see that I am still - after all these years - bringing in 100+ readers it encourages me to write more.. 

As much as we bloggers say we write for ourselves - I wonder how many of us would continue to write if no one came........

So I want to say a heartfelt THANK YOU to all the lurkers here on The Journey.... may you continue to come quietly - sit and read quietly - and leave.  I hope my words will continue to bring you back time and time again over this coming year........ 

 My wish for you all is: 
May you find something to warm your heart in my words....
May you find something to challenge your thinking in my words... 
May you find a smile or a tear in my words......

Happy Love Our Lurkers Day !!!!

  10. Hi Morningstar, The library is one of my favorite places to visit. I've read here for quite awhile and enjoy it very much.

  11. I must apologize to anyone who happened upon my "anonymous" commenter's comments. I have removed them... as truthfully I don't need stalkers ruining my day.

    And to "anonymous"... sigh... I will continue to delete your comments here on The Journey - you are not welcome to stalk me here - or anywhere else for that matter.

  12. I think this is the sweetest "love our lurkers" post I have read all day.

  13. why thank you lil!!

    I do honestly have a problem with asking anyone we are honouring to do anything... makes me think a bit of having to bake your own birthday cake.. know what i mean??

    Hi Morningstar!
    Yesterday I wanted to lurk here as usual while sipping my coffee when, lo and behold, all of a sudden an invitation was needed to reach your blog! I fumed for a while and then I was so frustrated I was cheeky enough to send a PM to Swan who informed me later that everything was all right again.
    I wonder who is responsible for that practical joke.

  16. @ordalie - i am not sure what practical joke you are referring to .. the nasty anonymous comments or my taking the blog down... however - it doesn't much matter - neither were practical jokes trust me !!

    BUT i am back up and running - with just one catch... all comments are moderated .. this way the nasty vile filled anonymous comments can be deleted before they see the light of day :)

  17. Hi morningstar,

    Good for you! Nasty comments should be deleted on sight without a moments pause or a word spoken. That's all they deserve.

    Thanks for being a part of our LOL Day celebration, abbreviated as it may have been for you. I'm glad you're here!
