That's such an ugly word isn't it? Lurkers...
Well, Mr. and Ms. Anonymous that's what you are! But you aren't alone, a study by Jakob Nielsen revealed that 90% of users in online communities are lurkers who never contribute and only 1% contribute regularly.
So, I guess I can't begrudge you your silence--you're part of the majority but...
I'd love to hear from you! It's so disparaging to see so few comments on my blog when my google analytics tells me I have readers from all over the country. It makes me think that either, A. You're not interested in commenting or B. Google Analytics is lying to me.
Either way, try and comment more often. You can comment anonymously I don't mind that but I'd love to open up a dialogue.
Look at all the people from all over the world who have stopped by just this month:
Irvine (Hi Joan!)
Stockton (Hi Aunties!)
New York (Hi Corey!)
Austin (Hi Mandy!)
Sofia (Hi Gabriela!)
Poplar (Hi Janea!)
Busan Metropolitan City
I know you are out there so comment people! Or if you have questions email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
