Therefore I am issuing a challenge to all bloggers who read this and wish to help me stamp out the use of the word ”lurkers”. Write a post on your blog in which you use the term Silent Reader as opposed to the term lurker to describe those who read but don’t comment.
I'm all for making my silent readers feel more welcome. I don't think that I've ever used the term lurker before but I won't in the future.
So what's your opinion? Do you like the name silent reader better? What about those of you who aren't silent? Would like to be called something special too? I think contributor is a good name because when you comment that is exactly what you do, contribute to my blog. Silent or not, I appreciate you all.
