Apparently January 10 was Delurking Day. I missed it, and anyway those demands by blogs for silent visitors to stop lurking and leave a comment make me a bit uncomfortable as a reader – as if I was innocently wandering through a landscape when suddenly caught in a gamekeeper’s headlights. So feel free to carry on quietly looking around. But comments are nice and I know a lot of people do wander through here, so please take this opportunity to make observations/suggestions/a small noise if you feel like it. More importantly – this site is fairly young but can I make a plea for people to remember to leave a reaction now and again when they visit their really long-lived favourites – because, as this recent post from the mighty Growabrain shows, the most established bloggers can stop feeling appreciated and they may not always be there.
