Delurking Day 2010

Apparently today is Delurking Day.

IT'S A HOLIDAY! Why am I at work again? Oh, right, money.

I have no idea how many people read this blog, let alone how many read it and don't comment, because I'm not as obsessive as I once was about checking my stats. That's not to say I don't care about you all. How could you even suggest such a thing? You know I love you. Why do you do this, Internet? Why do you test my love? WHY?

Anyway! I keep forgetting to mention this, but I've been getting presents in my Inbox every week. I love checking my email and seeing that someone has commented on my blog, because as I've mentioned, my self-esteem is directly related to how many comments I get on any particular post, and lately I've been getting comments on really old posts from someone called "Anonymous." How mysterious! Anyway. He/She/It has been leaving such gems as:

Your blog keeps getting better and better! Your older articles are not as good as newer ones you have a lot more creativity and originality now keep it up!


Wow! what an idea ! What a concept ! Beautiful .. Amazing …


Don't you love me. You can see my pics here. (oh, Anonymous, you cheeky monkey)

and more:

Dear Author ! It is remarkable, it is the amusing information

Sometimes Anonymous gets upset with me...I think:

I wish not concur on it. I assume polite post. Particularly the designation attracted me to be familiar with the sound story.

and my favorite:

...please where can I buy a unicorn?

I wish I could tell you all where to buy a unicorn, but I can't. Not because I don't know where you can buy a unicorn, but because one shouldn't OWN a unicorn. They are free and beautiful creatures. Just ask Hagrid.

However, if you delurk today, I promise to be better about answering comments from now on, because I pretty much suck at that. True story.


  1. My self esteem hinges on whether or not your reply to my comments.

  2. Then I'd better reply right away. Hiiiii!

  3. I'm intrigued by "Anonymous"...who are they and what do they do?

  4. I think we have the same secret admirer. Sadly, my questions are more like, 'How do I make money online without spending money?', instead of anything unicorn-related. It's sad to realize that your anonymous admirers are so consumed by greed.

  5. Heidi, apparently they go deep within my blog archives to leave cryptic comments. Or they are a spambot. One of those.

    Sir, I don't know, I think I'd like an answer to that question.

    Hello. I read your blog. You probably already knew that.

  7. Just started reading. Enjoying it so far!

  8. My anonymous commentors never ask about unicorns either ... of course, they often leave me comments that google assures me are Korean advertisements for things I would not search out, but I think this is not a fair substitute.

  9. I lurk! And thanks for lurking on mine! :)

    Dammit, I'm late! Maybe next year I'll do this in a timely fashion.

  11. I admit that I originally came here looking for where to buy a unicorn. I stay now for the poop jokes.

  12. Abs, I suspected. Now I know for sure. Hee.

    tomncristy, thanks!

    NTE, your anonymous commenters are more well-traveled than mine.

    Lindsay, yay for lurking!

    Fraulein, maybe we should make it Delurking Month?

    Vahid, I'll try to work in some unicorn poop jokes sometime.

  13. I didn't leave a comment at first, because I've left comments before so I figured that didn't count as lurking, per se. But I decided to contribute to your self-esteem. I know how sad it is when no one comments on one's blog posts.
