Yesterday a self-avowed long time lurker came out to leave a comment and for that I'm very grateful. I love to hear from everyone.
I'll have to admit that in the beginning I didn't understand lurking. Perhaps it's because I can barely keep my mouth shut, either in person or in print. Sometimes it seems like I can't get the words out fast enough and the thought of reading along without weighing in with my opinion was totally foreign to me.
But lately I've been trying to tone myself down a bit and there's a lot to be said for observing and contemplating without comment. There's also the problem of time. When your blogroll begins to run in the triple digits, something's got to give and usually it's commenting.
I do love to consider different viewpoints but have found that mostly we share common concerns and goals.
I'm grateful for everyone who takes time out of their busy lives to spend some time here. The visitors are the energy that drives the engine here on the prairie.
