De-Lurking Week

Orac mentioned that he runs recurring De-Lurking Days on his blog. “Lurking” is to hang around a web forum or a blog without making your presence known. “De-Lurking” is to come out into the light of on-line day, however briefly.

Aard currently has about a hundred visits by returning readers every day, and most regulars don’t come here every day. This means that Aard must have several hundred lurkers.

Dear Reader, is Aard on your blog reading list? Then please make a comment, as brief as you like. Thank you.

  1. I read you in my feed reader every day, and particularly enjoy the nice range of topics you cover…whether you’re writing well illustrated archaeological posts or video game reminiscences your blog is always enjoyable and interesting. ^_^


  2. Hi there,
    since the opportunity arises I’ll introduce myself. Name’s Mathias, German Archaeology student (early historical Arch. and Arch. of the Roman provinces), regular reader (via RSS) and that’s about it I guess.
    Oh, one more thing: and of the opinion that this is the best Archaeology-blog he knows.


  3. I READ and learn and laugh. This is your blog. I have nothing useful to say here. Lurking is good and appropriate for me.


  4. Lurking? Me? Well, yes, I guess so. I do read via RSS most of the time though. Cool artifacts. Science content appreciated.

    Former SCAer (Society for Creative Anachronism), still interested in early european archaeology.


  5. Love your blog. I am an archaeology graduate student studying early medieval Europe, particularly the social uses of animal art.


  6. I frequently lurk and more frequently aggregate through Google Reader. This is probably my favorite archeology blog and I do comment every now and then when I have the chance (re: knowledge) to.


  7. I don’t try to be a “lurker” on purpose, but figured I’d delurk just the same. 😉 I might do this at some point on my blog, it’s a good idea, I tried to encourage feedback by posting a survey but got minimal response (despite having many hits that day). I monitor my traffic and know I have readers but am always very very disheartened by lack of comment action.

    Anyway, enough of my woes, consider me delurked for the day, Aard is always one of my daily blog stops, I have SB as a whole on a Firefox live bookmark.


  8. I suppose I am lurking, but mainly because this is well out of my period and I’m a documentary historian by persuasion, but I like to keep my eye on the ground and you have a style that makes it light relief from the day-job to check in even though it’s academic (mostly). Always glad to see more content here!


  9. *show-lurking*

    Oh, alright! I’m no lurker. I’m more like the ususal suspect. Your Mr. Regual Reader.
    But at least I’m not weird about it. I don’t tie myself up first or anything. Er….
