Growing a community digital garden for Rosieland
I stopped lurking to let you know how much I appreciated this post!
The list shared towards the end is very insightful and helped me identify why I tend to fall into this behavior so often, thank you Rosie!
I love that my words have contributed to you've surfacing. 😊
This is a great post, thank you for sharing!
This article would probably have more upvotes if lurkers could do that 😂
Hah, this is true.
Love this Rosie.
I've also been really enjoying your newsletter recently. I have even added it to scoop. Feel free to get your votes up 😃
Your little section
Thanks, love the confetti!
I feel better about myself now haha!
I know you laugh, and it's funny you say that, but really I think many people are made to feel bad or inadequate for not participating actively in communities. I feel it's a bit of a problem.
First world community problems, perhaps! 😂
Couldn't agree more. We all have value we can add somewhere. It's a shame many of us feel like we can't for various reasons.
Nice, as a serial lurker, this is useful in also identifying potential causes for my lurker behaviour to try adjust. Hence making the supportive comment here to break out of lurking 😂
I do think we lack vocabulary for the different ways people interact and participate. I think there is a vast chasm between the lurker who upvotes and participates in polls, the lurker who rarely opens the site, and the lurker who reads often but never interacts.
Yes, I think so too. I'm trying to take steps towards addressing this.
