Delurk delurk delurk delurk

In the blogging world, “delurking” is an invitation for blog readers to say hello in the comments section. This is interesting to us, because this website happens to get a pretty decent readership, but we’ve noticed that the comments have been a little sparser this past year.

Hmmm… so do we have more readers, but they just happen to be a quieter bunch? Anyway… here is a post with a direct invitation for readers to leave a note just to say hello (you know, “delurk”).

O.K. Who’s going to take the plunge be first?
