Serendipitously, MFA Mama has informed me that it is National Delurking Week. I've never asked people to delurk here before, yet I do find myself curious about my lurking readers. I'm going to try and take advantage of delurking week and comment on sites where I both do and don't frequently comment. Hopefully this will get me comfortable commenting through GoogleReader. As for the rest of you, feel free to delurk and give us a chance to meet you.

The State of Lurking
Last week in a fit of vacation-filled delirium I decided to revisit my "reader issues" with Google Reader. I used to follow my ever growing list of blogs via BlogLines but the site seemed inconsistent and troublesome. Since then I've been following off of my own bloglist, that now notifies me when there is a new post. However this too has been failing, so I'm trying out Google Reader. I like using readers but I'm less likely to comment. I'm not sure why, as its really not all that hard to click through and I do like seeing each blog, but once you're in the reader mindset its hard to get out.
