RANDTS will last a thousand years.

Apparently, National Delurking Week was in the second week of January. However, since RANDTS only really kicked off in the first week of February, this post can be considered long overdue. About three months overdue, in fact.

First, to define the term 'lurker'. Generally, this refers to people who read blogs or join chatrooms/ newsgroups but do not participate in commenting (courtesy of Veerle's blog). Of course, this isn't something new - and yes, it can be cured.

RANDTS has always been intended as a place for the youth community to gather, read and discuss issues about the world we live in. If we have barely any contact with our dear readers - and that means you, my friends - then how will we know if we're on the right track, or whether we're discussing something that you want to talk about?

Here's an idea: leave a comment here on this post about who you are (are you still a student, are you working, where're you from, etc.). Doesn't matter that you just stumbled across this blog through a search engine or a random click, or even if you've left a comment or tagged our blog before - leave your details anyway!

In that way, we here at RANDTS can get an idea of who reads our blog and if we're doing well enough a job or not. If you'd like, you can leave your ideas and opinions about the posts by any of the RANDTSters (or blog members), or even what you think we should do in future. *grins*

Now that the red carpet's been rolled out, what are you waiting for? Hit me back! I'd love to get to know you better!

C'mon, throw me a bone

    Sometimes I know people are lazy to comment but we need to comment on blogs. It's the only way to bring democracy to the next level. Pieces of info need to be discussed in real time. Only through blogs we may achieve it.
