A Note About Comments
I buried this little note at the bottom of a post last month. I thought it needed it’s own post.
Recently I made the decision to close comments on my posts. As a long-time blogger (since 2005) who is fueled by comments, this is not a decision made lightly. It is not because I don’t value you as a reader, but rather to help myself stay true to the reason I’m writing — to make sense of the world and to give my story. In order to to give an untainted gift, I have decided to close comments in order to prevent myself from writing for what I can get (comments) and to protect my writing for what I can give. (The one exception is the Celebrate This Week posts.)
You matter to me and I value our interactions! Please consider subscribing to this blog by adding your email below the header or in the sidebar. I can also be found interacting on Twitter (@ruth_ayres) and maybe someday I’ll figure out how to make Facebook a regular part of my online existence! You can also reach me via email (see the Contact Me page), but realize email is my Achilles heel.
