Denise Tanton loves lurkers. The BlogHer community manager, a self-confessed lurker, admires people who may be you who prefer to read and lurk than read and comment.
In a comment about lurking, she writes:
I know the word “lurk” and thus being a “lurker” sounds bad but really, it’s not bad at all. It’s good. I love lurkers! Lurk away! I do wish folks would unlurk a little and say “hi” – but if they can’t, that’s ok. I understand. I lurk a lot too.
If lurking makes you more comfortable than commenting, please be comfortable. I understand if you are scared, anxious, or otherwise out of time.
