Comment Amnesty

Well, it's happened again.

My mailbox has a couple of hundred messages in it. Most of them are comments that you have so thoughtfully left. And that I really intended/hoped/planned to answer. And we all know how that goes.

So I'm claiming a kind of comment amnesty in Light (pun intended) of the season. I'm going to forgive myself for not getting them answered and delete them. Please know that I read every one.

Perhaps this could be the start of a blogworldwide Comment Amnesty for all of those who are drowning in unanswered emails. If I had the time and skill, I'd develop a Comment Amnesty button for the sidebar that people could grab and post. That would be splendid. But if I had that kind of time and skill, I wouldn't be in this predicament!

And there's no picture above because (a) I Google-imaged "amnesty" and couldn't bear to use any of what came up and (b) I didn't think about the road to hell until I was well into the post.

Prolly just as well.

Please: Join me in holiday stress reduction by claiming Comment Amnesty for yourself!

I don't have time to blog...I think not responding to comments is perfectly acceptable during this time of year! Happy Holidays!

Well you know I just assume you're always reading me. That way it takes the pressure off. But I have to say, this cracked me up: "I didn't think about the road to hell until I was well into the post." This, I fully understand and relate to!

Amen and couldn't agree more....I often think of switching to a format other than blogger so I could just reply on my own page....

Sounds good to me! We put far too much pressure on ourselves!
Merry Christmas and no need to reply to this comment!

Comment Amnesty sounds like a PERFECT idea! I'm totally on board.

I understand that! But I really do want to keep in touch with the people that comment and I always prided that I would answer every single e-mail that came into my e-mail box (before blogging). Nowadays I'm not doing so well. Sometimes I don't know if I'd do better to just go visiting other peoples' blogs and give up on answering comments. Or just turn on the no comment button on my own blog and NO ONE would feel obligated. But would I feel lonely? Today I'm out visiting blogs and ignoring my own e-mail box. It's my Christmas present to myself and my blog friends. Love you lots! And Merry Christmas!
