It's Coming - Tell Your Friends!

The eleventh Love Our Lurkers celebration is coming once more to a blog near you. Once a year all bloggers join forces and encourage their silent readers to come out of hiding and introduce themselves. Our dear friend Bonnie started the idea eleven years ago and it's been going strong ever since.

What is it? Lurkers, anonymous readers, call them what you will. They are the people who read our blogs on a regular or occasional basis, but never leave a comment. On LOL Days, we encourage those people to be brave and leave a comment. Most blogs allow commenters to remain anonymous, so you never have to reveal your real identity.

Where is it? It's everywhere, but right here on this blog, I will put up a post and record the links to all bloggers who are participating in LOL Days. If you want to see who has joined in the fun, drop by here and you will see the list.

When is it? Friday, November 18 and Saturday, November 19.

What do I have to do? If you are a blogger, publish a post on November 18, encouraging your silent readers to leave a comment. "Love Our Lurkers" in the title will be helpful but not compulsory.

What do I say? Some bloggers ask questions for their lurkers to answer. Others have competitions, with a spank for every comment left. Still others only want all their readers to say hello. The important thing is to be friendly and encouraging to readers who might be apprehensive about leaving a comment. Please remember to allow anonymous comments, even if only for a day or two.

How can I help right now? This year we want to get the word out to as many bloggers as possible to make this celebration even bigger and better. So I invite you to post an advance LOL Days announcement soon and include a link to this post, so that all your readers know about it too. Not all bloggers read this blog, and we want to be sure nobody is left out.

Let's all work together to make this year's celebration a huge success!

I wish I could share your enthusiasm. If I could, I would try to figure out how to make sure every lurker got spanked good and hard that week for their posting neglect. ;-)

I'm game! Especially since I'm guilty, myself, of being a lurker. I feel fortunate to find time to even write a post these days lol

I think I've been my own biggest lurker lately but I always like doing this, so count me in, please!
