thank you for posting comments!

For those of you who have posted comments before, thank you for posting! I love hearing from you! It really means a lot to me when you take the time and post a response. I much prefer this site to be a dialogue, rather than a one-way media.

If you haven't posted a comment here before, I encourage you to do so. I really am interested in what you have to say! I want to hear your responses to my posts. I like getting to know people. I like learning about you. Please share your experiences and thoughts and interests!

Subject: Re: [Out&About] New Comment Posted to '[entry name]'

I try to reply to each and every comment posted on this site.

If you post a comment and use a valid email address, I will reply to you via email.

I tend to reply within a few days of when you comment, but apologize ahead of time if it takes me a little bit longer to get back to you.

If you do not use a valid email address, then chances are that I will not reply. I am sorry about this, but it is my preference! I much rather reply to you via email versus replying via comments on the site. That way my response can be more personal... and each post won't have a bunch of comments by you, followed by a bunch of responses by me, followed in turn by another set of comments by you, etc. (which can be fun, but also overwhelming and messy.) You get my drift.

website campaign: stop the spam

All malicious comments will be deleted. Please do not waste your time or mine by posting comments that are offensive or contain spam.

To reduce the number of spam comments, I close comments at the end of each and every month.

Should malicious comments continue to be posted, I will enable a feature that allows your comments to be held for approval before they are posted to the site. I really don't want to resort to this, so please keep your comments nice and advertisement-free! THANKS!
