Once every year or so we do this here at Beer and Whiskey Brothers. We know you are out there, our stats don’t lie. Only a small fraction of you ever comment on our postings. How do we know? Wordpress tells us how many comments we get, and how many views we get. Subtract one from the other, do a little mathematical prestidigitation and BAM! We know that only about 2 % of our readers ever leave a comment.
I don’t want you to feel bad that you are a lurker…obviously this blog wouldn’t survive without you, but this is a selfish thing that Jim and I do every year to get more people to join in on the party part of the blog. The posts are fun, and I know lots read them, but the comments give Jim and I much more satisfaction, as we get to know more about our audience, and that interaction makes this blog more than just a place to read some funny posts, but it begins to build a community of people that truly enjoy craft beer, whiskey, and each other. Yes, people have even met up through the comments on this site, and that makes Jim and I very proud to have been a part of fostering friendships. It make this blog more meaningful for us and hopefully for those who participate as well.
So, here’s the deal Lurkers, We want to know a little bit about you. Answer a few questions in your comments.
1) How long have you been a lurker on this blog?
2)Are you more of a beer person, or a whiskey person, or do you (like us) love them both?
3)What is your favorite beer or whiskey currently? ( I say currently, because we know these change from time to time).
4)If you could have a drink with any one person, who would that be? (Living or Dead)
5) What was your favorite childhood toy?
That’s it. Easy Peasy, and it won’t hurt a bit, I promise. Jim and I try to respond to most every comment here, so check back often, and lets get this relationship started!
C’mon, you know you want to…afterall you’ve never heard of a famous lurker.
