say something. anything.

(ACHTUNG! I'M KEEPING THIS AT THE TOP FOR A FEW DAYS. MORE RECENT POSTS ARE UNDERNEATH.)


If you surf the net as much as I do, you'll know that it's National De-Lurking Week (well, international in this case.) A whole week instead of just a day like last year.

So if you're a lurker, leave a commment. If you're not a lurker, leave a comment anyway. Please? I know you're out there. You can't hide forever. I can see you. I know how often you visit. I know where you live. I know your mother's maiden name.

canadianswiss - Well, some of it at least!

Hey Rich! I know who you are and I've...uh...lurked at your blog before too. :-) Your mother's maiden name will just be our little secret, OK?

well, I hardly lurk around your blog. Be sure to check out my new iPod-Sock!

Because I have a blog I love to get comments, so I leave footsteps when I visit. I don't comment on politics or religion, though. But the blogs I enjoy don't touch those topics. Happy de-lurking week! wishing you many discoveries!

Mmm, I think the word I was thinking of was "footprints"...!

 
At January 11, 2006 2:08 PM, Blogger christina said...

Hi Mar! Thanks for leaving your footprints here. :-)

Cmae back to see if there was any new comments. The de-lurking week seems to work :).

You're right! We need to tell Sheryl that it really is INTERNATIONAL De-Lurking Week!

Lurking's twisted isn't it.

A brand new lurker as of yesterday!

Hmph. We've been outed.

Your Mr. M is a scream.

Just surfing around and wanted to say hi! I had stopped by once before but was a new blogger overwhelmed by it all. Is that a good enough excuse for not leaving a comment back then?

Yes, I lurked and so what of it???? Anyway...have a great week and I will be slipping back into the shadows now!

 
At January 11, 2006 9:53 PM, Blogger Dixie said...

Lurk? Me? Heck no! I just barged right on in and made myself at home and put my feet up on the table and everything!

 
At January 11, 2006 10:06 PM, Anonymous stringbean said...

You got me! Here I am!

 
At January 11, 2006 10:34 PM, Blogger Lisa said...

Hi. I'm new, just got here yesterday. I'm de-lurking anyway because I'm fearful to leave the herd. Wolves out there. ;)

Lurker here. One who made your trip in reverse--moved from Germany to the States more years ago than I care to remember.
Machs gut.

 
At January 12, 2006 12:00 AM, Blogger christina said...

Wow, thanks for commenting, everyone. Some of you I know already (Kiweee - you took the plunge!) and I'm happy to 'meet' the rest!

The lurkers may all go back to lurking now. :-)

 
At January 12, 2006 1:24 AM, Blogger Cathy said...

What a great idea! And as you know, I will never ever be a lurker; you are far too interesting, kind and important to not at least say hello.
HELLO! :)

 
At January 12, 2006 1:33 AM, Blogger Katya said...

I was at DixiePeach's blog and saw your comment -- I ended up here because you look like a friend of mine named Christina in the States and I thought maybe she had a blog I didn't know about.

Anyway, I like your's -- especially the beach picture at the top.

I will send you an Alabama quarter if you know my mother's maiden name. That would AFTER I fall out of my chair.

Lurking in from Bangkok. Needed a bit of a/c to beat the 32C temperature.

I'm not really a lurker - but I'm a very bad reader/comment maker.

xx

cool, my secret word is 'sowbvg' and that just happens to be my mothers maiden name!! :)

 
At January 12, 2006 4:07 PM, Blogger melusina said...

Well, pptcqd to you too!

Gah, I can never think of anything clever to say. I'm not a lurker, but I'm not not a lurker, either.

Hi again! I know this is inconvenient but... I moved to www.maremag.blogspot.com, tell me you will visit, won't you???

 
At January 12, 2006 5:16 PM, Blogger Expat Traveler said...

Well i guess I'm late... Better late than never.

 
At January 12, 2006 5:22 PM, Blogger Expat Traveler said...

By the way - I don't have time to stop by for about 36 hours, and look at all that I have missed since after monday... Shame on me..

 
At January 12, 2006 11:02 PM, Blogger Angie said...

Also guilty! (After a week-long hiatus, during which I was lying poolside in southwest Florida, slathered in SPF 30 and staying as far away from computers as possible... Alas, the vacation is now a distant memory.) I see I have missed a lot of lovely blogging from you in my absence. I especially enjoyed your "stuck in the mud" story. :)

 
At January 12, 2006 11:03 PM, Blogger Angie said...

P.S. I like this "lurker" title... it sounds a lot nicer than "cyber-stalker."

 
At January 13, 2006 1:32 AM, Anonymous lillian said...

no I'm not a lurker.. not on your site. I always find it hard to keep my opinion to myself :-)btw. THANX for helping 'unstrech' my blog !!!! Now I know who to go to .....

 
At January 13, 2006 10:14 AM, Blogger Andrea said...
