Dear Anonymous Person perusing my blog somewhere in the world,
Thank you for visiting my blog and taking the time to read through and respond to any posts that you find relevant, enticing, thought-provoking or otherwise. It is truly very humbling to put my thoughts out there in cyberspace and have confirmation that someone, somewhere, is actually reading what I have to say. It is an honor to receive responses from each and every one of you, and I will try my best to stay on top of approving the responses and replying to you.
With that being said, I need to make something very clear: I will not, under any circumstances, approve a comment that hyperlinks to any type of marketing or advertising ploy. The intention of my blog is, solely, to have a forum where I can express my thoughts and my readers can reply with their thoughts and we can then have a circle of communication. Please do not attempt to use my blog as a marketing tool or ploy to lure people in to purchasing “discount bags” or “the worlds newest and best major fat loss secret pill” or anything in between. I reiterate: I will not approve these comments, even if you have something really awesome to say before the URL attachments to the post. If you want your “something really awesome to say” to be posted, follow this simple courtesy, and you are good to go!
I am aware that you need to enter a name in order to post any comments. If you wish to remain anonymous, create a penname. Call yourself Super Man, Bat Woman, Lady Liberty; whatever you need to do. I totally respect that, but don’t try to put a hyperlink there either, because– fun fact!– I can totally see that, too!
Part of blogging and responding means that you, as the reader, may have an opinion that is completely opposite of mine. That’s the really awesome thing about writing: we all get to feel however we want to about the piece. PLEASE do not hesitate to post your thoughts, questions or beliefs here. I will never place a comment in the trash simply because you do not agree with me. I’m pretty open to every school of thought and I am always interested in learning new and exciting things. We are human, we are all different, we are all pretty awesome– let’s celebrate that! The only time that I will not approve a comment is if it directly attacks or belittles another reader. That’s a no-go, dear friends, so don’t even try it.
Thank you for your consideration in these matters. I look forward to reading future comments from all of the beautiful people that happen to come across my blog. I appreciate each and every one of you and although I probably don’t personally know you, I know that you are one hell of a human being!
