Come out, come out!

It's national de-lurking day!!


So de-lurk yourself.

But probably not in public.

People might not understand.

For real, though. Stop lurking. Leave a note. Let me know what you think. Even if you think I suck. Say I'm a self-absorbed, egomaniacal freak, whatever. Tell me what you think. I can (probably) handle it.

But please leave a note. I'd appreciate it.

Even though I am not a lurker, I comment often and probably inappropriately, I read you every day. Every day. Because your words are fresh and full of raw emotion and true feelings. Because your stories are true and from deep in your soul and your honesty allows all of us that read you to be a bit more honest with ourselves. The way that you tackle problems from errant shower fixtures to alcoholic abusive fathers HEAD ON, BALLS TO THE WALL, is so strong that it gives me pause to look at my own problems and I find myself a bit stronger for the looking. You don't hide your light under a bushel or your slugs under the rocks. You lay it all out: the good, the bad, the ugly, with no apologies and watching you on this journey of self discovery has been an honor.

Hi Dawn,

I have been busy over the weekend. But I finally made it over here to see what you were posting about. Since you are encouraging comments-I am willing to make one.

By the way-you don't suck, you are a very passionate writer!

You're a self-absorbed, egomaniacal freak.

Odd post given your recent absence from the commenter box yourself.

Hi I'm Joy and I'm a lurker. I read a ton of blogs but I only comment on a handful. I keep telling myself I have to de-lurk more but I go to write something and then go blank. Too worried I'll leave a stupid comment. Apparently I don't worry about that here. Heh

And what do I think? Well Queenie definitely writes it perfectly. I think your blog is fantastic. Which tells me you're probably fantastic as well. I think it's great how honest you are too. I've enjoyed my short time here, but definitely plan on continuing to visit for as long as you continue to write.

Not a lurker either, just a fan.

PS Not ignoring your last post, just haven't had time to give it the well thought out response it deserves.

Hi! I found your blog on the NaBloPoMo January 2009 Blogroll.

Did I seriously miss another De-Lurking Day? I cannot believe the lameness that is me, seriously. I guess there's always next year. :P

I enjoyed your post on whether forcing a child to eat is abuse. I agree with you about the power-struggle aspect of it. If there is only cold supper left for breakfast, then how can that be abuse? It's when there are options but the parent is determined the child will eat what they have been told to it that it's not right.

I'm sorry you've been through that.

Thank you all for the comments and support. Who knew when I started this thing that it would become such a channel for my own personal and spiritual growth? I am so pleased that so many have chosen to share the ride. Thank you.

And Crummy's right - I have been remiss in my commenting of late. Please accept my apologies all. I shall endeavor to do better.

Bull said...

Sorry Dawn, I haven't been around much in the last few days, so count me among the temporary lurkers that have de-lurked.

As always, great stuff!

Dearheart, I may lurk, but I don't miss much. I just don't generally have to add anything, you say it all so well.
