I just wanted to let my readers know that if you post a comment and I don’t respond it’s because I don’t make a policy of responding to every comment or even every comment that poses a question. When I first started blogging almost a year ago, I did. But now I don’t, and that’s for two reasons:
First, time. It takes time to write these posts, so I really don’t have time to go around responding to every comment. I mean, I do have a husband and family and I am in grad school and all!
Second, emotional energy. A while back I used to argue with readers who disagreed with what I wrote, but I found that that took up a lot of emotional energy and left me feeling drained. So now, the way I see it, I put out my thoughts in a blog post, and if someone disagrees, that’s no big deal.
Anyway, this is really the same clarification I write on my old blogger site months ago, but I have new readers so I thought I’d restate it.
