Wondering

I posted this picture of Wade on Facebook yesterday. It wasn't often that I could get a picture of him where he wasn't flipping me off. Even rarer that he was looking right at the camera and smiling. He hated having his picture taken but this day he was having too much fun riding around the yard on this old mower.

So blogger is back to delivering your comments to my email or at least most of them. There are still some that won't come through but that's the way it was before the problem started. Now I can reply to comments through my email like I did before. I'm wondering though if there are any of you who would prefer to have me reply here on the blog. Here's what I'm going to do. Let me know where you want to see my reply and that's where I will put it. For now I"m going to leave comments embedded. I may change that at a later date but for now it stays.

26 comments:

  1. I always do replies to comments on my blog, but honestly, at other's blogs, I rarely go back to see replies to my comments unless I remember specifically asking a question. It's your blog, whatever you want. But I've never replied to people via email, although one or two of you email me...which is fine.

    1. I never go back either but some people do

  2. I never use email for the blog, people generally reply on the post although the email is there for anyone who wants to write a longer reply.

    1. I've liked using email but some comments come through as no reply blogger

  3. do what YOU want to do... I love emails, but you know that I never go back to a blog post after I comment unless I save it to show it to bob. I don't read the replies and I wonder for the few I follow that have it if the persons they answer ever see it. let me know what the consensus is for your question. I want to know but I will not change mine

    1. If you want the to come to your email you need to change it in your settings. Your comments come through my email as a no reply blogger so yours I would need to reply to here on the blog

  5. It's a great shot of Wade. What a treasure for you.

    You do your comments how you want. WordPress lets me know when someone comments on my comment. It's all good.

    Have a fabulous day, Ann. Big hug to you and tons of scritches to Gibbs. ♥♥♥

  6. That is a great photo - captures his personality. You know I like to see all the comments on the comments - I do go back to blogs to read answers to any comments posted (not just mine) - because sometimes folks ask questions and I like to see the answers and sometimes the comments are funny or enlightening - and sometimes I comment on the comments - I'm interactive like that. I've always responded to comments on the blog itself and in the past interesting conversations have evolved from that, with commenters commenting on other commenters (whew!) And all that said - it's your blog, you handle it the why YOU want.

    1. It is a nice picture. I had forgotten all about it until I found it in the files. I think most people just stop once and don't return but there are some like you who do go back and read replies and other comments

  7. I don't do emails as you know. So...I'd prefer the embedded comments replies. But it's entirely up to you...IT'S YOUR BLOG!! (Same with my son regarding pics...he too flips me off 99% of the time)

    1. I think for now at least I will do a combination of both

  8. What a wonderful picture of Wade, Ann. Good memories! xoxo As far as the comments, you do whatever you're most comfortable with, my dear. I reply on my blog itself, if there's something I think needs replying to. Just in case you were wondering. Love, Andrea xoxo

  9. This is a nice picture of your hubby. - As for comment replies, I like them best in my e-mail as I rarely go back and revisit a post.

  10. I definitely prefer emails. I am getting a few email posts now --but not too many. I had deliberately chosen as many blogs as possible to send me their posts by email... I truly don't have time to go back to blog posts for replies...

    Love that photo of Wade.... Hope you are hanging in there, my Friend.

    Hugs,
    Betsy

  11. Great photo of Wade...and a great memory! I think you should do what works best for you on the blog but I do go back and read comments on the blog. I get SO many emails that it is easier for me to keep my blog stuff on the Blog!

  12. I don't go back to check my comments and I usually visit people's blogs who have left a comment and thank them there.

    That a nice photo of Wade.

    Have a lovely Sunday ~ FlowerLady

  13. Since my email is one that doesn't seem to go through to you, I come back and check to see comments here. But, you do whatever you want to do and it's okay with me!

    I'm glad you have a good photo of Wade where he's having a good time! People don't realize how important those photos can be one day. So many years I haven't wanted to be in pics so I'm making a conscious effort to change that. My hubby hates pics so I take candid ones or make him pose for selfies with me! Lol

  14. Always fun to hear from you, but rarely go back on blogs to check. I'm at wenzlcorp@mchsi.com

  15. That is a great photo of Wade riding on the lawn mower. Sometimes I hate to have my photo taken but when I look back I'm glad it was taken. Wishing you a good week ahead.

    1. I don't like mine taken either but I suppose future generations will probably want to know what we looked like

  16. Great picture! I'm glad you have some good ones! He looks genuinely happy here. I hate having my picture taken too.

    1. Thanks. I remember that day and he was having a lot of fun.

  17. I like that photo. It is genuine and not posed...which is best. I hope that smiley face that stays with you.

    I always have the comments exchanged on the blog. But...not all comments need a reply, so I don't always respond. If the comment is funny, thought provoking or a question, I will reply and the exchange continues there. I think we have more fun if we have the exchange and others can chime in. And yes, if I question or thought, I do go back to past posts to see what others have said on the topic too.

    Do what works for YOU and your blog. Don't feel like you have to comment when you visit my blog or if I leave you a comment. I'd rather it be more natural and easy for everyone.

    1. I agree that not all comments need a reply. Very general ones like "great photo" or something similar there really isn't much to reply to. I just don't want people to feel like I don't pay attention to what they have to say. I have rarely remembered to go back to a blog even if I've asked a question but I know some people do. For now I"ll try doing both. Answering here and some in email.

  18. He really looks like he was having fun on that lawnmower! I read somewhere if you delete and re-enter the email you want the comments delivered to the problem should be fixed. Need to try this myself :)

Thoughts, opinions, constructive criticism, it's all good to me.
I will delete all spam comments however, so don't even bother trying!
