Commenting on comments

I don’t often ask for a favor – in fact, I don’t think I ever have – but I have a favor to ask.

There’s hardly a blog I post that doesn’t get at least a comment or two. The thing is, though, that you may never have seen them. That’s because a lot of those comments come directly to me as emails, and not in the comment section below each blog.

Don’t get me wrong – I love to get your emails. (My lonely hermit-like existence craves human contact.) And some of those emails have led to wonderful discussions of the particular woodworking topic at hand, but the only two people who benefit from these conversations are the correspondent and me. Again, I love to talk woodworking and these back-and-forth communications are great, but they’d be even better shared with other readers.

Posting comments here can be a pain with the registration process, something I’ve been told several times in emails, but you really only have to do it once. After that, leaving your thoughts in the comment section is pretty much automatic.

So, give it a try, and share your thoughts with our extended woodworking family.
