Please Pardon My Not Responding to Comments Sometimes

In spite of how you all might sometimes see me responding, I try not to be rude to my readers. I especially try to not ignore my readers, since, without you, this would all be so pointless. It's just hard, some days, to respond to each comment.

I can't even promise to “get to them all” since I hate breaking promises, as it is.

But, sometimes, this old system of mine won't cooperate and other times, I just find myself on other projects and, time is the scarcest of commodities. Other times, there are just some things best left unsaid. You know me. You know how I can get.

And I am working on those things the best I can.

Lately, a few of the irons I had on-the-fire fell into the pit and there are times when it really is best to let some projects go. Either they're not work-able beyond the planning stage or the cost for the money would be too much of my soul, so there they lie.

One of my major goals is to still contribute to . I'm not giving up there. I really think I'd have to be banned from the site – yet again the varg – just to get me to go. I like what this community is and will become. I smile when I see what it will one day become.

It's more important than a lot of folks realize, right now. So, please bear with me. I'm enjoying reading so many posts from you guys and feel so privileged to just be a part of this.

Thank you.

I have always believed that commenting and interacting should be a source of fun and enjoyment and never tackled as a chore to be done half-heartedly.Sometimes there is a great post written that does not need a response other than well said. Sometimes, it is difficult to find time so no apologies needed and I am sure we all understand each other's time and financial constraints so best wishes with your life projects. If you are not here you will be missed but not blamed:D

I think we can all understand. It's easy to fall behind in commenting and responding to comments.

I agree that interacting should be a pleasurable task, and not a chore. If I find myself looking at it as something I have to slog through, I put it away for a bit and do something else.

We all of us do what we can. Sometimes we cannot do what we would like but it's no matter, at the end of the day, we have all of us done the best that we were able to. Other people looking on may not agree. Too bad. We have ALL done the best we could with what we had, time, resources, motivation and tomorrow is another day.

It's difficult to able to comment and read all of them. We all understand and are there in the same boat. I can't read all stories posted by others and then respond to all of the comments I receive, it would take much more time than I have to devote in front of the computer. Persona is a wonderful site and the community is very gracious and understanding. No apologies needed here. I'm here for the long haul and will do my best.

We all have things pulling us away. We are still behind you as much as possible!

Personally, I love to comment in a post that I can relate , at the same time I see to it that I responded all the comments in posts but sometimes we just can't, so it's okay.

Sometimes there's just nothing to say...but at least I've read them..

I can't comment to every post or respond to every comment. I don't always have something to say. I don't always have time.

That happens to many of us as well. Don't worry about it!

I never get to all the posts people write. I do try to spread my comments around though.

I try to read and comment and interact when I don't have anything to write yet, so I am still here alive and kicking

Thanks for commenting on my post out of your busy schedule. Now I would understand if I don't get response from you. :)

BarbRad wrote on October 31, 2014, 9:42 PM

I hear you. I try to respond to all comments unless I just miss one. I'm finding it hard, though, to comment on everything I read. Sometimes I just can't think of a thing to say, or I'm afraid my real thoughts would be offensive to some and I don't enjoy hurting people for no good reason.

It happens to the best of us! Some posts urge us to think and respond. Others, simply tug at our hearts and simply reading these posts bring contentment to our hearts and joy in realizing that we made the right choice of joining this wonderful community in Persona Paper.

I try to interact but I am a novice at this site so it is taking me time.

Sometimes when I get a lot of comments, I feel too daunted to respond to them all, even though I like when people respond to mine! Now that the site is busier--which we wanted--it's harder to keep up. Oh, cruel irony! I have decided that it is probably more important to leave comments on other people's posts, not just because it pays me, but because it makes other people's posts look more popular and contributes to the "weight" of them, as far as backlinks and stuff.

It is nice to have a comment or two ,or more ! We can't be miracle workers though,can we? I think we all have other things sometimes, and when we have done that it is so lovely to come and read and comment.hope you get your work done so we can look forward to you being here soon..
