Hi there, Readers! Every few months I try and get you to delurk—reveal yourselves and your interests—and I have little success. But I try anyway. After all, I've revealed myself to you, and I'd love to know who you are too.
Traffic has been high lately in part because I've been active elsewhere on the web, and I'm glad you've all found your way back to AiP. If you're a new Reader, please take a moment and say hey, tell me where you hail from and what you're interested in—what appeals to you about anthropology or if you liked a specific post—here. Most importantly, welcome! Glad to have you here.
Longtime Readers I know you're still there, and I know that life keeps you busy. I won't call anyone out by name, but there are some regular voices I haven't heard from in awhile. In case you're wondering, bloggers do notice who's around and things get awfully quiet when you disappear. As I said, I know some of you are in school, are teaching, etc., but I'd definitely like to hear from you.
To facilitate commenting, I've permitted anonymous posting—just keep it clean, please. I will delete your comment if you're unnecessarily rude. Looking forward to hearing from you!
Update 11/10/10: I am THRILLED that so many of you have responded. I love hearing from you—it makes me feel less like I'm speaking into a void. And many of your have interesting projects of your own to share, which is fantastic. Keep talkin'.
