National De-Lurking Week


There are some folks (and I KNOW you're out there) who read my blog and yet are usually to shy to comment. Come on! Leave a comment! De-lurk! I'd love to hear from you!

Lurky lurky turkey turkey.
Hey, everyone else's regulars are leaving daft comments on their blogs!!

Jesse said...

I dont lurk. I also dont comment as much as I used too. So that's that.

Oh yeah, and howdy.

JM said...

hello!

BrightStar said...

hi! I read consistently, but often do not comment because the dialogue is quite smart in your comments and by the time I arrive, I never know quite how to add much, but I have always enjoyed your writing.

Ancarett said...

De-lurking as ordered. "Hello, Dammit!"

Hah!

What else can I say? Yet another stressed out academic who spends way too much time online. That'd be me!

That'd be me too, though I don't have a blog.

Bonjour Tristesse said...

color me bored and academic, too. i'm a phd in my thirties in the humanities; landed my first tt job in the northeast to start this fall. love your blog.

Anastasia said...

Kate said...

De-lurking as ordered. Hello!

prefer not to say said...

I think I've commented before. I don't think I'm a complete lurker. But at any rate, I'm a single female tenure tracker, got hired at the same time you did. And your blog was/is my favorite in the whole world. In fact, I'm such a big fan that it's embarrassing, and probably a little inappropriate, or at least indicative of my need to get a real life with deeper emotional texture than my online life.

Looking forward to more blogging on the academic writing life.

hot mess said...

i've commented occasionally, because i don't know very much. i'll be starting (fingers crossed!) an interdisciplinary/social sciences phd in the fall. i like what you have to say since i am really curious about (trepidatious too) what that will hold for me.

Tinky/Caddy said...

Hi, Dr. Crazy =) Found you via my classmate's link to your old site, and have been a faithful follower since then. Glad you're still blogging.

michelle said...

hi. i've posted once or twice but happy delurking week all the same!

Seeking Solace said...

Greetings and salutations! How’s that for a hello?

deej said...

Normally I'm too shy to do anything but read blogs. But if a random holiday tells me to do it, well then...

Since I am actually commenting I should say that I'm a fan of the new format :)

Jenny D said...

Yes, I've commented occasionally too, but not for a while; I like your blog a lot, came here initially via Inside Higher Ed. (I'm also a tenure-track female English professor; I find your musings on anonymity or otherwise especially interesting, my blog's more of a literary thing and less academic & it's under my real name, which leads to its being a somewhat different animal than yours I think.) I'll be interested to see what you do over here--good luck with writing plans & the new semester.

Inside the Philosophy Factory said...

You caught me...

Have a great semester...

zipzap said...

I'm not sure whether I've ever left a comment, but I read you all the time. Good stuff.

Dr. Virago said...

I'm not a lurker at all, but I wanted to say I didn't know about National De-lurking Week at all and might do something similar on my blog -- so thanks. And cool graphic, too.

Scrivener said...

I think I've left a comment over here and at the old blog once or maybe twice. Is it ok to use the holiday to point out that I think you lurk on my blog way more than I lurk on yours?

bbound said...

I admit, I lurk! You have a lovely blog, and I always look forward to reading it.

phd me said...

I know I've commented before but I definitely read every day. Love the new format, by the way!

jo(e) said...

I read all your posts, but don't always comment, so I think that qualifies me as a lurker.

Aspiring Academic said...

Yes, yes... I have been lurking for awhile now. I love your blog. And I love the new format.

Dr. Crazy said...

Hi everybody! You know what's funny? As Scrivener points out, I think I'm the biggest Lurker ever - it's actually REALLY rare that I comment on most of the blogs that I read. Hmmm.... Perhaps today I shall celebrate nat'l de-lurking week by commenting on all of the blogs that I read?

Oh, and I can't take credit for the graphic - I stole it from Clare :)

sb said...

hi :)

Holly said...

I'm a regular lurker, simply because I rarely have anything useful to say (take now for example)! I really enjoy the daily read though.

Teri said...

Hi. Delurking. I love your blog.

The graphic was created by Sheryl of Paper Napkin. She's got a bunch more available if you follow the link. Some of them are quite funny. Actually, delurking week is her creation as well.

Badger said...

I think your other blog was one of the first academic blogs I stumbled upon. I definitely read this blog far far far more often than I comment.

Laura said...

Delurking. I have always enjoyed your blog. I especially appreciate your posts on teaching.

Cats & Dogma said...

Not so much delurking as checking in to say halloo. And that I'm going to link you when I declare a de-lurk-a-thon over at RC&D.

cada parker said...

hello from a grad student lurker. yours is one of the blogs i'm reading as i'm finishing up coursework and getting ready to teach in the fall...it's a good way to keep perspective on this life. (i also enjoy the other, less academic posts...)

kmsqrd said...

hello, damnit.

Morning, I'm not yet a lurker, because I just found your blog.

USJogger said...

I'm not sure whether I count as a lurker or not. I have left one (1) comment, which elicited a very polite response. I am not a long-time fan, but I've been reading fairly regularly since close to the end of that other blog you had. I enjoy your work, and I believe I'll keep reading. It's a nice perspective on teaching and the academic life.

Hello.

Jenn said...

Hi from another grad student. Reading is my break from the mire of papers, applications, teaching, and comps that seem to be piling up around me - thanks for a few more minutes of almost-rest.

comebacknikki said...

Hey! :)
I've been reading for a few months, but can't remember if I've ever commented.

Psycho Kitty said...

Miranda said...

Just delurking as requested. I've really enjoyed reading your blog over the last year or so.

Dr. Crazy said...

Hiya De-Lurkers! Thanks for stopping by!

veteran novice said...

Nice to find your new site. Hope you accomplish what you are trying to do. You are always a pleasure to read.

Andrea said...

Hi. I love reading your blog.. if only to remind myself why I was so right to get out of academia and off the tenure train before I ended up in a wreck. I'm only half-kidding. I'm an ex-prof with 2 small children and have been struggling with my two lives for too long. Finally after the nth act of blatant sexism and general bad management by my department, I quit. I'm a free woman. And getting poorer by the minute. I actually do feel free at last, and I don't regret it. Now I just have to find a way to pay the bills.

Laronia said...

As long as the week isn't out yet . . . I'm an undergrad classics major considering a career in academia. I read several academic blogs, but don't usually comment, mainly out of shyness and not really having much to contribute. I enjoy reading your blog and appreciate your insight, though, particularly in the series of posts you (and others) wrote a while back about advising students for or against grad school - a subject on which I've really been looking for some candid help. Thanks.

Anniina said...

Hi, Dr. Crazy! This is my first visit - I came from 'Quod She' via your old blog. Thus, my first introduction to you was the . closing post of the old blog. I was intrigued, and followed your 'change of address link' and I'm glad I'm here! Great stuff!

Dr. Crazy said...

Hello! Hello! Thanks for stopping by!

kermitthefrog said...

Hi Crazy - I've been reading for some time, and enjoy it both as a grad student who's interested in academic issues, and a reader who appreciates good writing. best, kermit

Not Quite Grown Up... said...

Hi. I've been reading your blog for a couple months, and don't think that I have ever commented. I like reading your blog because it helps me to remember that my professors are real people with lives outside of the class they are teaching me.

susan said...

Hi Dr. Crazy--I like your new space! I can't remember if this is my actual first comment on your blog, but I've been reading your previous one for a while.

Scarbrowed said...

I just discovered your blog. I'm contemplating whether to head for a future as a law professor. I love reading about how evals really work for a professor.

chemgoddess said...

Hi. I've commented before but not recently (if memory serves me). I had been reading your old blog for about a year and I think I like the new blog even more!

Looking forward to posts to come...

Dr. Crazy said...

Howdy ho, de-lurkers!

The Lost Camel said...

I confess, I lurk... Love your Blog. Found it VIA I Call Her John.

I don't think that I'm really lurking -- but then again...

I'm David and my interest is communication (mass media). I'm taking a year-long trip and testing the utility of seven media channels: blog; newspaper column; online forum; map room; photo gallery; podcasts; and radio.

If the idea of getting your message out there using more of these options, please take a look -- and leave a comment, if you aren't a lurker...
