Lurking Appreciation Day
12
Wed, 02-10-2010 - 10:14pm

I thought it was time we had a post about how much we appreciate those who lurk on the board but don't post very much, to say that we are happy that our information and tips are being read.

I'd like to invite anyone who wants to say a few words to do so, here in this thread. Introduce yourself, let us know you're here... and, only if you want, tell us why you lurk!

I, too, am a lurker. Much like the previous poster, I am a relative newbie who doesn't feel she has too much to add or offer...yet. Right now, I'm just taking everything in and learning as much as I can. And I'm very much appreciative of all the great info that others have shared! Maybe one day, I'll summon up the courage to lend my voice to one of the topics being discussed, but for now I think I'll just probably lurk for a little while longer.

Thank you both for posting here! I hope that you both will eventually feel comfortable around us here to become regular members of Pagan Paths. Please know that there is no such thing as a dumb question. Everyone here was a newbie once when we all first trod upon our spiritual path. We all had lots of questions and we all stumbled for awhile until we found our way. Some of us, like myself, stumbled a lot more than others, because when I first discovered that I was a Pagan, there was no Internet, no networking among Pagans and only a few books, most of which were about the witch trials. So I am very glad that there are boards like Pagan Paths for people new to the path. It makes finding your way a lot easier.

I hope that you both will continue to remain with us here. When you feel comfortable enough please jump right in and post away!

I came by to answer the QOTW, but thought I might check out the board more while I am here.

I don't know much about paganism, other than what I have read quite a while back, and I have dabbled in using energy and Reiki. My personal belief is that we are spiritual beings having a human experience.

Anyhow, off to read a bit more of your board, I just thought I would answer this question too, while I was here. ;)

Hi, my name is littlemom, and I am a lurker. ;-)


I was raised a good little Baptist girl, but somewhere along the way decided that my god wasn't an angry, vengeful god.

Hiya, littlemom, and welcome to Pagan Paths! We are indeed a laidback group here, and I really like that. I've been a member of a lot of different Pagan forums and none of them are as friendly and open-minded as we are here. The other forums have a "my Goddess can beat up your Goddess" attitude, where they argue over little things like semantics (for example, I'm not "supposed" to call myself a Druid, since "real" Druids don't exist anymore. I have to call myself a "Neo-Druid"), where they feel they have the right to jump down a person's throat at any little thing, etc.

I don't see a problem with combining paths and celebrating the different holidays of different paths. I was a Buddhist for a while and I still follow a lot of its beliefs. I still feel a deep connection with Buddhism and don't see a real problem with still following it as well as being a Druid.



I hope that you'll remain here with us and in time will decide to join us in our conversations. We love new people being with us!
