There’s been a lot of flap lately among the Latin American blogger community about comments. I don’t want to rehash what’s been said – but the more I thought about it the more I knew I needed to get something out.
The crux of the matter for me is that it’s MY BLOG and I can set the rules. My blog is a fun place for me to talk about our experiences here in Mexico. I really enjoy it. I think other people appreciate the effort I put into it. I love it when people comment, too.
BUT….I want it to stay fun. I don’t want to put a bunch of rules on how I blog. Regular readers will note that sometimes I write three or four posts a week and sometimes more than a week will go by. It just depends on what I am thinking about, how busy I am, etc.
I don’t want it to be like WORK. I want it to be FUN. Sometimes it’s all I can do to write a post, and I have no more time to give to it. That means comments may go unanswered sometimes. I have a “email us” link at the right so you can email me if you need a response. And actually, questions that really require a response should be sent in an email anyway. In my book comments are just that – comments.
So, please help me keep on having fun.
PS – The lizard above – I found him in our office yesterday and think he had been there a while because he was really lethargic. We released him in the backyard, sprinkled him with the hose, and an hour later he was gone. He was about 8 inches long.
