De-Lurking Day!

Hey folks!

uni(di)versity has been up and running for almost two and a half months now. We’ve had visitors from nearly 70 countries, and we’ve been privileged to host some amazing writing from some fantastic contributors.

Caitlin and I, your friendly behind-the-scenes blog-runners, are especially lucky. We get to chat with our brilliant contributors on a regular basis, solicit new writing, and read the emails folks send in. But we want to get to know you, our marvelous readers, a little bit better.

Therefore, we’re declaring today to be our first-ever De-Lurking Day! Come hang out in the comments and let us know a little bit about yourself. Where are you from? How did you find us? What’s a fun fact about you?

See y’all in the comments!

    Great initiative, guys! Hope you don’t mind me copycatting it on my own blog :p

  2. Be our guest! I tend to think the internet would be a friendlier place if we all came out of hiding now and again to say hello.

    Reblogged this on Ruby Pratka – Year of No Fear and commented:
    A friend of mine, who has a popular blog about diversity in Canadian academia (focusing on gender and disability issues), had everything you could want on a blog. Thought-provoking content that fills a niche, a small army of guest contributors, and hundreds of hits a day. Everything you could want, that is, except an active WP comments section. Every morning she would check her stats and find scads of new unique visitors from all over the English-speaking world. But all of these readers would pass like ships in the night– there were hardly any comments! So she had a great idea, which I’m reproducing here. Let’s have a DE-LURKING DAY! I politely request, dear readers, that if you pass by in the next day or two, you leave a short word in the comments field. Who are you? Where are you from? What do you do? How did you find this blog? What do you like to read on it, and what d you wish I did more of? A sort of informal reader survey…party in the comments!
