Delurkers Unite!

This is what happens when you go away to Atlanta for a week - you come back home with your Google Reader overflowing (280 posts!?!? really guys?!?!) and realize that it's Delurking Day/Week. And we at Working Girl practically missed it all.

I have confessed many a time that I am a huge lurker. I'm not a good commentor (one of my New Year's resolutions!), so this is the perfect week for me to start. And it's the perfect time for you to start too!

WG1 and I read our Google Analytics. We know there are a lot of you out there lurking and we'd love to meet you! So leave us a comment or e-mail us.

You know you want to!

I'm a long time lurker! I love reading your posts and as a fellow working girl I can totally relate to a lot of what you say.

constance said...

Hi...my name is Constance and I'm a lurker! The first step is admitting you have a problem, right? :)

Herding Cats said...

Okay, guilty as charged. I love your blog, but I don't think I've commented because I'm like that nerdy girl in junior high who is afraid of the popular girls. But yah, love you guys!

cass-a-lass said...

Hey girls! Love your blog. Mostly your reviews of The City (who doesn't love Whitney?). I also find myself wondering who has time to have pre-work breakfast chats with their friends.

Steph said...

well I think I've commented a few times, so maybe not a complete delurking.. but yeah! Hi I read your blog and love it :)

Jackie said...

I've commented before, but not in a while....so I figured I would stop by and say hey!

And that man in the delurking picture is kind of creepy, haha.

Kristi said...

I'm a semi-lurker. I've commented a handful of times, but I read everday! It sure feels good to delurk.

rosiertime said...

Well, hi. :) I'm a delurker, as well, and a very enthusiastic reader, as well!

I was wondering, though, do schoolgirls count as working girls, too?

JustCasey said...

I need help! I activated a Google Analytics thing for my website but I don't know where to paste the code. I tried to follow their 'help' instructions and I pasted the code right before the 'body thing' that they described but my status is still showing a "tracking not installed message"
What am I doing wrong?

Working Girl One said...

JustCasey, when I installed ours I wasn't sure if i did it correctly so I emailed the Google Analytics people. Then, it worked!

Mallory and Kenny said...

Can't remember if I have commented on here or not! But love this blog! More drunken nights with coworkers. Love those stories. I live vicariously!

Classy in Philadelphia said...

I'm not really a lurker, but I don't comment as much as I'd like to. I'll try to get better *promise!*

steph anne said...

I think I've commented once or twice, but I'll still come out as a lurker : ) you girls are great!

Kirsty said...

Hi... I'm guilty! I just love your office stories. I'm a former working girl and can totally relate, especially with the posts on all the different office personalities :)

NikeRun said...

Hi! I'm NikeGirl! I'm a lurker and I love your blog. I actually just ran into it this past week or so. I read some archives and can't wait for more!

Ms. Homeowner said...

I'm a lurker....Ms. Homeowner from Canada (aka the Great White North) here!

I started reading your blog because I was looking for advice on how to deal with a job that you hated!

Keep the posts coming!

Mandy said...

I've written a comment or two before, but delurking is just way too much fun to pass up. Keep up the great writing - you're on my favs list.

Lauren said...

I was never a lurker, but hi! here i am!

You'll see me pop up from time to time.

J-Diggety said...

I've been a lurker since last summer! I luv your site, especially the fashion posts :)

Karen said...

I think I may have posted a comment here once or twice before, just want to say I love your blog! I am a fellow working girl and feel like I can really relate to your stories!

Actually, I really like it when you do the different "Working Girl" stories from all different peoople in different industries/jobs/etc...!

Downbeat said...

I've commented before, but not for awhile. I love reading what you ladies are up to and look forward to continuing reading you in the future!

Ohmygoshi said...

calixta.jive. said...

i love love love your blog... i'm lurking as we speak (as you read?)!!!

KChristensen said...

I'm so guilty of this on like 10 different blogs, but yours is definitely one I hope to see updates on daily! I just joined the blogging world a couple weeks ago, so it's not that awful that this is my first time commenting, is it?

I, too, love your recaps of The City, I have yet to watch it, but don't think its necessary after hearing your play by plays...love it!

Meika said...

I'm a long time lurker too! I'm a working girl too! Love your blog, HATE The City, ha.

L to the Aura said...

I have commented before so I'm not sure if I should be considered a lurker or not.

Okay. I am.

Cookie said...

Not sure if I've ever commented or not, but I've been reading regularly for about a month now, and sporadically for a couple past that. I think you both are hilarious, and I work events at MY job so sometimes I just feel like I can share in the frustrations and joys :)

B said...

Probably 95% lurker, 5% commenter.
Sending you delurking love from KS.

Caitlin said...

Hey Working Girls! I found your blog after WG2's story of meeting Hanson (love!)

I love your blog since I'm also 23 and a working girl in advertising. I can relate to just about everything but the freezing weather, haha.

E said...

I usually try to comment.... but at times I lurk as well!..... I am a follower does that count? lol anyway lurking: I think we all do from time to time! Love the blog! :)

christina said...

Ambermutt said...

Lurker here, de-lurking... I adore this blog, it's one of my regular stops across the web.
:)

Heather said...

Love your site, gals! I'm a lurker too, so don't feel bad!!

Mark said...

Am I the only guy who reads your blog, or the only one who admits to it?

I find your stories of workplace drama and the career rollercoaster more entertaining than any TV shows trying to portray that. Hmm... maybe you need to be a reality show.

BrightCrayon said...

Full-time Lurker, part-time commenter. Commentor? Either way.


Always enjoy reading your blog girls, I'll be going into my first real job-job in May with Sherwin Williams. While it's more of a mixing paint, uniform type job (with Management training), within 6 weeks I'll be an assistant manager and begin climbing my way up the corporate ladder.

It's always amusing to read your blog, and see what sort of hurdles and possibilities I may have in front of me when I finally walk across the stage and begin my life. You girls are very talented, smart but always real. I think your readers would agree.

Keep it up!

Kate said...

I just found your blog :)

Being Brazen said...

I sometimes lurk....

Anush said...

Hello,

I check your blog often and its good for a quick lunch-hour read.

Natalia said...

Am I too late? Can I be the first to delaurk for next year?

I confess, I lurk all the time. I love your blog!

moArdy said...

Consider me delurked! It feels so good to finally get that out :)

TudorCity Girl said...

I there,, I'm a lurker.. recently became a follower. Great blog - it is somewhat addictive.
I'm the non-working girl blog in NYC. (as in - still can't find a job). You guys remind me a lot of myself at times in the office when I was in my 20s.
Congrats on a very successful blog!

Sistah to the Night said...
