It is International Blog Delurking Week. Say 'Hello' for a Change

You. Yes, you reading this. This post is aimed at you specifically.
You see, it is International Blog Delurking Week from January 12 - 18 and I know you are one of the lurkers!

a blog lurker is a reader who drops by to read a blogpost and then just goes away without commenting or letting the author know that he's been to their site.    In other words, someone like you. *smirks*


What is a blog lurker, you ask? 

Well, simply put, a blog lurker is a reader who drops by to read a blogpost and then just goes away without commenting or letting the author know that he's been to their site.

In other words, someone like you. *smirks*

It is sadly quite common in the Indian blogosphere to have friends read our articles and then just shut the page without so much as a 'hi' or feedback on what they thought of the article.

Via the Blog Delurking Week (hosted by blogger Parul here), the aim is to encourage you to step out of the online shadows and let me know you've dropped by.

You can hardly accuse me of having posts that don't suit your tastes, after all, because I tend to cater to everyone's needs over the last 12+ years, I reckon.


Godyears was the Winner of The Indian Blogger Awards 2017 - Best Blog from Kerala

Of course, I can also just sit and gloat about how I ended 2017 by winning the title of  Best Blog from Kerala at the 2017 Indian Blogger Awards

You must have an opinion about something here, surely. And even if you don't, take 30 seconds more after you've finished reading this just to write a few words in the comment box to let me know you've dropped by. It can be a simple 'Hi', a complex 'How arth thou, kind homo sapien' or even better, bank accounts and passwords (I really enjoy reading those! Thank you in advance.)

Stop lurking in the shadows. Stay in touch.

  4. A writer contributes his ideas by shadowing himself behind a veil and helps to change people's mindset through his opinion..Being a person with such magnificent ideas,I am of the opinion that you should've been born,brought up and migrated to some foreign countries..Maybe the lord send you here amongst these conservative people to change these narrowminded bums of our country through your creativity and that is your greatest purpose in life(which I doubt they will)..On this day,let me,one of the greatest fan of your opinion,mindset,thoughts..I wish you best of luck in life and agood health...I'll continue to do my part of lurking seriously on international blog delurking week too,like many of the other lurkers of your blog..A writer is known to the world through his fans and lurkers..

    2. Thank you so much... this is like the best comment I've had in years, methinks!
      It is the kind of thing that inspires bloggers to keep writing.

      Touchwood, all that struggle will work out in the end as far as NEET is concerned.

  14. Doctor, I love your blog. It's on my blogroll, too. It isn't lack of interest why I haven't visited lately (and be assured, I rarely lurk when I visit.) Right now my role as a caregiver for a 90 year old mother in law and providing for the future of her disabled son are taking much of my psychic energy. I could give you some insights into American medicine as it treats the elderly and maybe we can decide which system is worse. All kidding aside, I am going to be back - and never as a lurker.

  15. One other thing - your request for bank accounts and passwords made my day! I needed that smile - thank you!

  16. Haha...love your sales pitch for people to delurk! I do regularly visit but don't always comment due to time constraints or if I'm reading on the mobile.
