You are very welcome to comment on any of my blog posts and will be able to do so by clicking on the title of the post then scrolling down to where you’ll see a small ‘Leave a Comment’ link. Clicking that will show you the comment box.
The need for an email address is simply a security precaution. I will see your email when you comment, but nobody else will.
If you want to ask me about anything specific that is related to myself or my work, or if you want to tell me something specific that relates to your own personal life, please use my contact form instead, as this site is public and its content – including comments – will eventually appear in search engines (such as Google) and will remain there indefinitely, to be found by anybody… and not necessarily nice people!
Also, as I know some of my family and friends will visit this site – hello – a word about my husband… to retain a bit of privacy, I’ll be referring to him here as ‘Mr. H.’ which is short for ‘Mr Halloumi’ (as he is so very fond of Halloumi cheese!) So if you want to mention him, please use ‘Mr H.’ or ‘Mr Halloumi’ instead of his real name.
I moderate (approve before publishing) all comments to minimise the chance of spam and other bot-type nasties getting through, but would ask you to be responsible for your own content. Staying on topic and adding to the post with pleasant and interesting comment is great, but going off at a tangent, having rants, picking on other commenters (or me!), or having long off-topic private discussions, is not and I shall probably just delete those, ditto comments with links to other blogs’ posts or external sites that are unrelated to or distract attention from the post. (If you have a WordPress.com blog your ‘screen name’ will automatically link to your active blog so there is no need to add your blog address.)
I’d also prefer, please, that you keep politics and religion out of your comments as they can lead to discord. However, a missing comment does not automatically mean that I’ve deleted it as the site’s spam-eater (called ‘Akismet’) sometimes eats the wrong comments and puts genuine and perfectly fine comments into its over-large stomach! So, if your comment doesn’t appear, please don’t think the worst, just wait a few days and hopefully I’ll find it and fish it out.
I try to reply to as many comments as I can but please don’t be offended if I don’t respond to all, or as quickly as you’d like as otherwise I’d not be able to do anything else. 🙂
