Edible Comments and the Weather…

My blog has taken to putting all comments in to moderated mode again. *sigh* I must have a space or something in my spam list, but I can’t find it anywhere. It’s like it just gets a mind of it’s own. Hopefully, I’ll have it fixed soon. Meanwhile, I’ll approve them as fast as I can.

Funny thing about comments … why don’t people leave them? No, no, this is not another “woe is me, I don’t have comments” posts. I had three different people say things to me this weekend about posts – one said that she liked something I wrote, others said they liked pictures over on Pixelog; none of them left comments. I find that odd. I guess because I give feedback like that when I see a pretty photo or read a post that makes me think, well, something. I just find it interesting. Maybe people just think that when they see me, they will say something – but that can’t apply to everyone because I don’t see all of you. I wish I did though – the weather is great in Houston right now (at last!) so who wants to come and visit?

Speaking of the weather, I hear this is what summer is like for most people? Lows in the 60s, highs in the 80s? It was a “balmy” (hahahaha!) 80 degrees outside yesterday – simply gorgeous. I’m glad we finally get summer weather instead of sweltering heat. 80 degrees is so much nicer than constant temps in the high 90s. Just wish the summer weather wasn’t in November…

I’LL comment, Christine! I guess I don’t often comment because I either don’t have time–I check the blog when I’m on a conference call or I’m sometimes just quickly taking a break between things (right now, for example, I’m waiting for a meeting to start in five minutes)–or I just don’t have any thoughts on the post other than that it was nice or funny, so I think, “Why take up her time with a comment like that? It doesn’t contribute anything.”

I’ll be better. Promise. And how ARE you, BTW? It’s been an age and a half.

I’m sorry to hear bout the spam probem you are having, I wish it was still in a can! If you had Movable Type, and the plugin Movable Type Blacklist, I could show you a trick to make it work better at blocking spam.

Only 2 people posted a comment on my blogs post I posted on my blog last Friday, which is what I thought would happen to that post, so I don’t think I will ever post posts on the weekends again if I get no posted comments, but just wait until Monday to post to let them know how my weekend was in a post. I have a headache!

I’m happy to here that you have nice weather where you are, it’s been raining here alot in Germany, so I was not able to go to Rothenburg last weekend with my friend Sally, but we went to the outdoor museum in Bad Windseim which was so cool because it was outdoors, but a cow pooped on me!

My mom says if you get pooped on by a bird it’s good luck, so I guess Bill Gates must have got pooped on by an elaphant! Anyways, enough with the poop, because it stinks!

It’s nice to meet you, Christine! I hope you had a nice weekend!

If you think you know where I am, please don’t tell anybody because I’m fraid of stalkers, because I don’t wants to be good and dead, because it wont feel too good!

I love giving and receiving comments. Some days, I’ll even go through all of the blogs in my BlogRolling list and leave a comment on each one! hehe 🙂 But I’m like you, if an entry receives NO comments whatsoever, I always think, “What’s going on? Did they not like what I wrote?” hehe 🙂

I generally leave a comment or two as well. I have always thought the same thing. People will ask me about a story or article in person or over email instead of leaving a comment.

Perhaps there are others like me out there who are inclined to comment (because we might, oh, disagree), but avoid doing so in fears of starting a inflammable string of comments. 🙂

About the comment spam… I recently installed Wellard’s ImageAuth hack, and hopefully will never have to use moderation again on my own blog. Hooray!

Well, here in the northeast (CT) summer is usually mid 80s – 90s and humid. Nights are usually in the 70s but really sticky and uncomfortable. I wouldn’t be able to deal with the South in the summer. My gaol is to be successful enough so that I can live in the northeast in the summer and in the south in the winter – I can’t stand our winters 🙁

Adam – Just giving you permission to leave comments that you disagree with me. Or to tell me that I should not be throwing gangsta signs on a Sunday night. Either one. I promise, no flames. If someone else flames you in my comments, I’ll be the first to tell them that’s not cool. Promise. Nothing I hate more than a flame war. But it’s perfectly ok to disagree – sometimes it is good to see the other side and realize that you might not be right after all… (for me, the always balancing Libra.)

I don’t get many comments either. I figure people can only stand so much talk about spam comments and my kids. heh

I’m loving this weather, too. Although, the forecast for the weekend makes me think it’s about to be heater time!

I have spent the last four years of weblogging being the worst comment-leaver in the world. I”m trying to reform by commenting on weblogs, honest! 🙂

I’m actually having the same thing right now about comments on my own site. The only people who wish to comment are spammers, they’re driving me insane.
