Pick Me!

A weblog by Laura Moncur


Blurkers Rejoice

Filed under: Blog Stuff — Laura Moncur @ 5:00 am

I know you’re there. I see the stats growing every day. Every once and a while, someone will post a comment, but mostly, you come, you read, you leave and I have no idea whether you got anything interesting out of your visit here.

I write this weblog for myself, but that doesn’t mean I’m not curious about you. Recently, Ward Jenkins had a Blurkers Rejoice entry on his blog and I thought it was a good idea:

Blurker (BLUR-kur): n. 1. One who reads many blogs but leaves no evidence of themselves such as comments behind; a silent observer of blogs. 2. One who reads many blogs but has no blog of their own; a blog-watcher or blog voyeur.

I’m interested in you, so please stop blurking just for today and leave me a comment telling me a little about you.

  • Why do you visit my blog? For the writing and stories? The photography? For the links to weird stuff?

  • Who are you? What profession are you in? Are you a boy or a girl? What do you do for fun?

  • How did you find my blog? Link? Another blog? The Quotations Page? Starling Fitness? Doing a search on Google?

Just for today, leave me a comment and tell me just a little bit about yourself. I’m actually very curious about you because you come and read my words every day and I never know who you are.



  1. Laura, I met you and your husband at a Utah Bloggers dinner a few weeks ago. Since then I have been reading, and enjoying your blog. So you know, I am a guy, I am 24, and I am a content producer for a local bundled services providor. Thanks for the content!

  2. I visit your site because your writing and photos are enjoyable. I enjoy the links to travel, gadgets, exercise and your general good vibe. I am not a true blurker as I do leave the occasional comment. who the others are i have no idea.. I am a guy and run a country store in Oregon with my wife. It’s for sale if anyone is interested (remax, randy grimes) I think i found your page via the quotes page one winter day several moons ago. As for now, u r in the favorites under cool blogs and Pick Me! pops up. Have a good day and keep up the good work! b

  3. Why do you visit my blog? I have an excessive amount of free time usually. I like the stories and occasional odd link. Who are you? I am a professional slacker. I have been out of work (on purpose)for 3 1/2 years being Mr. Mom. For fun I’m an armchair political activist. I dabble in competitive shooting. How did you find my blog? I googled myself and there I was and there you were so here I am. I try not to google myself too often, I hear you can go blind. I promise to send an email the minute I get back to town. We’ll have our own 20 year reunion!
