De-lurk and tell me what you want to read about
When I compare the number of people posting comments here to the number of people who are subscribed to the RSS feed and the number of visitors this site gets, I would guess that perhaps one out of every hundred regular visitors has ever posted a comment.
That isn’t necessarily a bad thing, mind you. In general, quality is better than quantity. But I am quite sure that there are many more readers who could post high quality, insightful comments, but for various reasons don’t. And that’s perfectly fine. However…
For the last three years on or close to this date, Veerle Pieters has written a De-Lurking post, encouraging all her readers to post a comment. She did it this year too, beating me to it. I had planned on writing a De-Lurking post this year, but I guess my Christmas break was a bit too long and made my brain slow down a bit. So I forgot, but luckily Veerle’s post served as a reminder :-).
So I’m curious:
- Who are you (name and occupation)?
- Where are you from?
- How long have you been visiting this site?
- Have you posted a comment here before?
- What would you like to read more (or less) about here on 456 Berea Street?
Answer the questions you feel like answering. But please do post a comment!
