Some Apologies Are In Order

Man in Doghouse 03

It seems I owe many of you an apology.

Let me explain.

I had a little free time earlier and so I decided to go browse back through my extensive catalog of posts that I’ve written over the past few years.  It was a wonderful trip down memory lane and I got many a smile out of remembering bits and piece of my life that have, for the most part, faded from my memory.

However, I noticed something that I was appalled by.

As I was reading the comments many of you made to some of my posts, I was absolutely appalled and ashamed to note that there were many, many comments that I did not respond to.  This was a complete surprise to me, for I have always prided myself on answering each and every comment I receive.

I think they problem may lie in the fact that I have, up to now, relied exclusively on the Notifications feature of WP to let me know when someone has responded to one of my posts.  I then click on it, answer it, and then go back to Notifications for the next comment.

Apparently that method is not foolproof and results in a significant quantity of comments that I never see and thus never respond to.

So, first of all, let me apologize to all of you that I never responded to.

And secondly, let me assure that I will be answering these unanswered comments over the coming weeks.

So, if you get a surprise reply to a comment you left me a year or two ago, don’t be alarmed.  It’ll just be me …. catching up on the mail.



  1. Ah yes, been a victim of the pesky spam folder, siphoning off followers’ comments. Don’t think I’ve had this situation though, but only looking through each post will prove that. Good luck with your catch up.

  2. Ha! I love this! A couple years ago (when I was still on blogger), all the blogger blogs glitched and stopped giving comment notifications. Mine even gave me trouble when I tried to reply to the comments, and it wouldn’t always provide a comment window, or a “post comment” button. That glitch lasted a LONG eight months, and it was such a pain to visit each post or look in my comments folder every day or two just to see if anyone had commented. One blogger even started leaving himself the first comment on his own posts so he’d get the notification when others “also” commented. It was really a pain.
