I lurk because I pretty much live at work and never seem to have the energy to type when I'm actually sitting in front of the computer... after I'm done lurking, that is. This is one of my visits every time I'm online... just not to post, lol.
Also, because I'd love to post pictures of my boy, but all I have is a crap cell phone camera.
I guess I can try to post. xD Sometime...
I'm a lurker more these days because I'm super busy! When I'm on the computer I'm usually doing school - fun Sometimes I just see what I've been missing, but don't post much these days.
If this isn't the truth! Here have some of these :hail::hail::hail:
lol It always is nice to be quoted, and particularly nice to be agreed with. It's top notch when you state a strong opinion that is controversial and people like it.
Most of the time, I lurk because I don't have anything of value to contribute.
I don't lurk here because I've been here for over 8 years and if it's on my mind, I'm usually posting it. I used to care if people agreed or even noticed, but now it's almost a therapeutic thing for me to just type out a post, even if I never look at it again.
I feel like a lurker, but my post count doesn't really support that feeling.
I real lurker has appeared!
I feel like threads move too fast for me. Chaz has huge threads and usually what I want to say had already been said. Even though I have been here for four years (I've been lurking for longer than that, closer to 6yrs) the clique here is still sort of intimidating and often I feel like I'm intruding on private conversations. Sometimes other posters (and i) will post in a established thread and it gets blown over. So meh.
I do understand feeling like there is a clique I use to feel like that a LOT when I first joined. Most people are pretty welcoming and there is definitely a group that knows each other and some have even met up with each other. The problem is, is to become a part of conversations you have to just jump in and keep posting.
Maybe try posting pic threads? There may not be many posts but a lot of people will see it and even that lets people get to know you/your dogs a little bit.
XD I post Yoshi pics/videos a lot. I MIGHT get a couple replies but as someone who doesn't compete with my dog, doesn't have a cool rare breed, and who has a mediocre camera most of the time I don't really expect more replies I just like showing off my dog lol
I don't think Chaz is intentionally excluding people. I don't find it unwelcoming or anything, just hard to compete with. I post pic threads (probably most of my posts come from that, lol) I think most of my problem is that I'm a lazy poster. lol
I look at A LOT of pic threads on my phone when I am bored, its my favorite thing to do. But its such a pain to reply... or I tell myself I will reply when I get home... and then I never go home
