The Joy and Difficulty of Blog Comments

A big THANK YOU to all of you who leave comments.

Believe me, I know it is not the easiest thing to do. And please understand I am perfectly OKAY with my readers who read and scoot, because I also know too well that just reading a blog can be exhausting. After all, this IS a blog that reaches out to a community rich with those who struggle with MS and many other health obstacles.

When I researched for my 100 Chronic Illness blogs, it was very sad to see some blogs, posting for years, with only one or two comments. Still, the blogger posted on---and these are bloggers who have advanced cancers, deadly diseases, certainly much worse off than I. And I realized how difficult it had to be for THEIR followers to even use a computer. So, truly, I appreciate everyone who stops by. (Even those who were searching for something completely different than what they found. Sorry about that, mate.)

It has been harder for me to read blogs and leave comments. The security "...to prove you are not a robot." check points are increasing difficult for me. I'm not sure whether to blame my eyesight or the web site, but I just can't make out some of the letters (it says "words" but in what universe are those words?! I digress.) and I am beginning to doubt my own robotness.

I tried removing stop catches (avoiding spam) but, still some comes through and I hate the idea of making my blog difficult for my readers who may be already challenged just to read a post.

My point IS: I appreciate the hoops you jump through to leave a comment. Comments add to my brain's discussion/observations, thereby making it think some more---got to exercise that baby!

Another sunny January day in Seattle. Time to go outside and get into trouble. HA!
