Today is dedicated to Highlowaha lurkers! Not sure if I'm talking about you? How about this... If you're from any one of the places listed below or have never posted to our comment section, then chances are yes... I'm talking about you. You are the people who loyally show up, but who have never made your way to our comment section.
Wake Forest, NC; Cocoa, FL; Palo Alto, CA; La Mesa, CA; Poquoson, VA; Glen Oaks, NY; Billings, Montana; St. Louis, MO; Easton, CT; Colorado Spring, CO; Richardson, TX; Houston, TX; Mount Prospect, IL; or Bloomington, IL... among others!
Boone, NC, you used to be one of our favorite lurkers, but recently you posted twice. That now makes you one of our favorite new commenters.
Our blog is built as much on the concept of community as it is on creative ideas, so identifying readers who have never commented is, to us, like being a kid in a candy store. Wake Forest is chocolate, St. Louis is gob stoppers, Palo Alto gum balls, Poquoson jelly beans, and the list goes on. It's as though Katie, Heather, Cheryl, and I are seven years old, begging for one of everything!
We can't resist. We want so badly to know who you are what makes you tick. We also want you to know, that even though you forgo our comment section, we appreciate you tuning in when you do.
Today we're going to ask you to entertain the idea of gently... ever so slowly dipping one toe into the warmth of community and out of the impersonal, cold world of anonymity. Nothing drastic, just one small step.
Below is a six question poll. No writing, just clicking. Participating will allow us to get to know you better without you having to say anything. Venture out of lurker status just long enough to answer a few questions. If you're getting this via email, don't close the screen. Take a second - come on, tell us a little something about yourself. It'll be fun.
Loyal posters... Have no fear. Go directly to comments. Do not pass go. Do not collect $200.00. Tell us about your first HLA comment.
Signing off until tomorrow...
