So, I’ve been failing at my “organizational break” I’ve been taking this week. My email inbox is OUT OF CONTROL. Part of that is because I leave comments in my inbox until I can follow-up with responses here on the blog. Some of these comments are months old. Comments that I don’t even know if you’ve subscribed to follow-up comments or even care to get follow-up comments.
Before I go any further, let me say that I LOVE responding to your comments here on the blog. I honestly believe that it has helped foster the community here on the blog and helped me get to know you better. By responding to comments I also feel like I digest your comments better. Not only that but I like to acknowledge your comments and appreciate when other bloggers do the same.
But responding to comments takes a lot of time and unfortunately my Internet time is very limited–so much so that I can’t always respond to your comments in a timely manner…and sometimes I fail completely. I HATE the thought of having to stop responding, but something has got to give. I’m thinking about maybe only responding to questions or lengthier comments that lend themselves to responses. I’m also thinking about emailing responses to those who don’t mind. A few bloggers do this and I love getting responses from them. I also love when people respond to me in the comment forms of their blogs (after I’ve left them a comment).
Anyway, if you are a commenter here, please please please fill out the following form. Please consider these questions as specific to my blog, not generally speaking.
And, if you have any words of wisdom, please feel free to let me know!
See you soon…
