National De-lurking WeekWow, where have I been? The second week of January is almost over, yet I just found out that we’re observing National De-lurking Week. I suppose it’s not too late to celebrate, is it?

What’s that? You don’t know what National De-lurking Week is?

This is an invitation to anyone who reads this blog, or any other blog for that matter, to step out of the shadows and say hello. If you’re a regular reader or incidental browser of 10,000 Birds but haven’t been moved to comment, please consider yourself moved. I’d love to hear from you.

For those lurkers who’d like a little more structure to the de-lurking process, let me help you help me. Or is that help you help me help you? Just tell me what would make this site more enjoyable for you. What content or blog features would improve 10,000 Birds? Could the site use more trip reports or fewer? More photos or fewer? More about me, less about me, more birds or bugs or blogging or reviews or politics or sports or poetry? Maybe more pictures of my adorable children? Come on, lurkers, tell me what you like!
