Friday Freestyle

Happy Friday everyone! It is the best kind of Friday around here. It is a long weekend sort of Friday. I actually have a FIVE day weekend. WOW! I am so very spoiled, huh? Well, don't feel too jealous. I spent the entire Thanksgiving day tending to a puking child. Odds are....I'll be puking tomorrow. will be fine. I'm sure.

Anyhow, today, I'd like to discuss Bloggy Communication. I have been blessed with some really lovely readers of this little thing I call my blog. I have been over blessed with some very active commenters as well. For that I thank you. I do like to talk...and I do talk A LOT, but it isn't fun to feel like I am talking to myself. I can do that in my head. It is a kick for me to have folks commenting, and interacting with me.

I do find that it is difficult for me to always get back to people about their comment. I don't always like to go to YOUR blog and leave a comment about YOUR comment, as I think it takes away from the topic that had been discussing. If I comment back on my own thread, I know that most people don't come back to it to check it out, so that feels like a waste of energy. My preferred method of responding it through email. Several months ago, my friend, Megan, posted about this, and directed her readers to a post that gave directions on how to change a setting, so that when you comment, the email message comes from your email account and not the "noreply". This is fabulous. When Megan leaves me a comment, I can easily just hit reply in my email, and comment right back. I love it. It is so efficient and I feel that it strengthens the communication loop.

I'd love to direct you to Katherine's post, Comment Mystery Solved, so that you may consider making the change as well. I'd love to be able to contact you directly regarding your comments. Think of the fun we'll have. tee hee

Have a great weekend! I look forward to contacting you soon! wink wink....

Ohhh...I hope the puking doesn't hit you too. That's no fun. I hope Sugar Bear is better today. She sure is a cutie!

I spent last Thanksgiving tending to a sick baby. Not fun, but you seem to get a little more snuggle time. I hope she is feeling better soon.
I will look into the comment reply.

Is sugar alright today , I was praying for her in the night she has been on my mind. I hope no one else gets it.

I hope your daughter feels better, and that you don't get it!

Thanks for the link to Megan's blog. It looks wonderful, so I subscribed. The direct link to the comments post does not work, though. I had to go looking for it.

There is now an option for Blogger users to get follow-up comments emailed to them. So, if they check that, and if you reply on the post, they will get your reply. I've been really enjoying that.
