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.
