Why don’t you have comments enabled?
My comment Policy is that I don’t have comments enabled. I had them enabled for many years and when I switched over to WordPress, lost nearly a decade’s worth of comments and my heart was crushed.
Comments are like a blogger’s currency, it’s how we prove that our words have worth to the world. And when my heart was crushed I realized I’d built an idol of sorts out of comments. I’d begun to worship the number instead of the One for whom I was writing.
Because I never do anything by halves, I disabled comments and here we are!
I still love getting emails from readers though—especially because I’ve found that in an email a reader is more likely to be honest and it takes a little more intentionality. It also affords me the opportunity to really think through responses to my readers. So if you’ve been hanging around Sayable for a while and you’d like to introduce yourself, please do! I mean that with all my heart. I can’t always respond quickly, but I always DO respond. Promise!
Hope to hear from you soon.
