Ms. P.'s Place

A place to share thoughts and ideas, ask each other questions, and talk to others who understand.

Come Out, Come Out, Wherever You Are

Ok, I admit that previously I was a "lurker". No, not the dark alley or behind the bush kind, the blogger kind. In my 23 Things training, they taught us about "lurkers". Blogging "lurkers" are people who read post after post, but don't leave any comments. As a lurker, I sometimes felt that the post was so far above anything I could add that I wouldn't add anything to the conversation. I know sometimes it's that I didn't honestly have anything to offer that would add to the discussion. Sometimes, more often than not, I thought "Nobody wants to hear what I have to say about their topic". Then, I realized that I was wrong. People do want to hear what I and others have to say or else they wouldn't set up a blog that accepts comments. They want to hear from others, even if it is an opposing view, as long as it is presented in a respectful manner.

Are you a "lurker"? If so, realize that I and others do want to hear what you have to say. Your comments are valuable and sharing with each other is how we learn from and teach one another. So come on people, come on in and comment! :^)
