Announcing Love Our Lurkers 7



LOL Day 7 will be held on November 9, 2012

Yes, it's almost time for our seventh annual Love Our Lurkers Day celebration.

On Friday, November 9, many spanking, DD, and Ds bloggers will publish posts where they invite their readers to comment. Every reader is welcome to participate, but the people we really hope to hear from are our beloved lurkers. A lurker is a regular reader who doesn't comment or otherwise let their presence be known. As most bloggers know, lurkers represent the majority of our readership.

LOL Day provides an opportunity for these silent readers to speak. Perhaps they are shy. Maybe they think they have nothing to add. Or, possibly, they've been waiting to be invited. On LOL Day, we will issue that invitation. Bloggers are encouraged to interact with their readers. I enjoy meeting and learning about the silent majority.

Some blogs will be running promotions, such as promising one swat per comment, to encourage participation. Others will engage readers in other creative ways. All in all, it's a fun day for everyone and a supportive environment for those who choose to de-lurk.

If bloggers let me know on LOL Day via e-mail when their post is up, I will add their link to a running list I will be keeping here at MBS.

As we've learned in each of the previous six years, today's lurkers are tomorrow's friends. All they need is a little encouragement.

If you'd like a preview of what happens on LOL Day, here are links to our previous posts:
          LOL Day 1 (2006)
          LOL Day 2 (2007)
          LOL Day 3 (2008)
          LOL Day 4 (2009)
          LOL Day 5 (2010)
          LOL Day 6 (2011)

Please pass this date along to your readers and to any spanking, DD, or Ds bloggers who you think might not see this announcement.

Here are some new LOL 7 logos you can use for your post, or create your own if you prefer.

     
 
 

I look forward to talking with everyone on the ninth!

I was a long time lurker in blogland before I plucked up the courage to make myself known. I even kept lurking after I had started my own blog for a while.

I will participate for sure. Thanks Bonnie
