The First Annual Procrastination Station Lurker Appreciation Day

Okay people, today I thought we would try something a little bit different . . .

I happen to know that there are at least a handful of people out there who log on to the Station each day, spend a little time, get their fix and then quickly scurry away to some other site . . . without leaving so much as whiff of perfume to indicate their having been here. I believe said people are commonly known as "lurkers".

Let me be the first to say that every single person is welcome here regardless of what you feel your comfortable contribution level may in fact be. But, if you happen to fall into the afore-mentioned "look, but don't touch" category, then today is your day to shine.

I am hereby officially designating today as the "First Annual Procrastination Station Lurker Appreciation Day". (Please excuse our pomp and circumstance, but this is important stuff we are dealing with here.)

Now . . . the details are as follows -

- If you happen to find yourself reading this, please leave a comment. This request is only for today. I simply want to give everyone out there the chance to say "Hello" without having to feel any added pressure whatsoever. We are celebrating you and want to let you know about it.

- Please leave a comment, it can totally be anonymous and all you need to say is hello or something similar (or whatever you want).

- Regular commenters are welcome to participate as well. I am hoping to generate an insane amount of that "warm & fuzzy, blog's are great" kinda feeling out there.

I can't really think of anything else to say (I know it has been an incredibly "wit & humor-free" zone tonight), except that it has been great knowing you all are out there and I really look forward to a little contact with ya . . . if only for one day.

This should be fun.

Hi Ben O.

I have no clue if I have lurkers, because I'm too computer unsavvy to know how to check such things. How pathetic.
