I found one of Windy’s recent posts very interesting. Especially where she tells us that there was some doofus telling her, “Wait twenty-four house before you answer comments,’ then, ‘You’re waiting too long to reply to your comments’ like there are some frigging rules about.
I always like to answer my comments. It seems like most of us do. But what is the best timing? In the old days most of us posted in the mornings and answered comments in the evening, because a lot of us worked outside the home during the day and had to come home and cook supper, bully everyone into doing their homework and see that everyone got to bed… THEN maybe we’d have time to answer our comments.
Now I’m home during the day, I can answer them as they come in if I want, but sometimes that stops comments. I know it used to, people would comment but when they saw you’d begun answering they felt like that was the cut off point. I had a friend say just the other day in an email, ‘I went by the blog, but you’d already answered comments…’ like that stopped her from commenting.
If you’re every feeling that way – please don’t! Comment ANYTIME, comment more than once, comment a few days later. I just enjoy hearing from anyone and everyone. If you’re several day later than when the post first came up, drop me an email to let me know it’s there and I’ll pop back and answer it. Believe me there is no cut off time.
That’s one of the best things about blogging – NO RULES! We can post about anything from canings, spankings, bondage, figging, knife play, discipline in the woods… all the way to trying to explain about nearly knocking yourself out while trying to plant flowers. And we can answer comments (or not) whenever we feel like it. It’s great to have a place in life with no rules!
