If you’re a blogger, you probably deal with comments on a regular basis. So tell me, do you approve and reply to every one that comes in?
Since the creation of this blog, I’ve chosen not to approve (post and publish) only 3 or 4 comments, and all were for different reasons. I definitely support a difference in opinions, freedom of speech, and opportunities to create stimulating conversation, but I don’t do drama or nonsense either.
As far as replying to comments, I try to respond to each one, but when traffic is high and things are really rolling it can be a challenge to keep up. That’s certainly not a complaint though, so please don’t stop, because your comments are absolutely wonderful! I just don’t want anyone to feel bad or ignored or anything either. Sometimes I haven’t responded simply because I’ve been overwhelmed with emotion and just don’t know what to say, but that’s a good thing too, as it usually has me on my knees in prayer instead. Other times, it’s been the exact opposite where there just really isn’t much to say, or things seem redundant, so I try to make sure to at least “like” your comment so you know it’s been read and is appreciated.
I admit, replying to comments might not be my strong suit and I’m ok with that, as long as what you read here touches your heart or moves your soul in some way… Then I’m using my gifts the best way that I know how and trust you’ll keep coming back for more :)
