Q and A...your way...

...I usually like to comment on the comments as soon as possible, I'm a little late this time but I do have a question for you all.  How do you respond to comments on your blog?   By e-mail, on the post, not at all?  Curious, I used to e-mail a response but so many bloggers are no reply on their settings, then I tried to respond on the post page and wasn't sure if anyone was reading it.  Do you return to the post to see if I responded...should I just respond on the next post?

Well that is what I'm doing today so here goes;

thank you to those who read here and especially if you leave a comment, it truly does make my day and makes my heart smile.

Nancy; my new prosthesis is called Limblogic and is a vacuum system with a small computer that senses when I need my prosthesis to be tighter to adjust to activity or less if there is inactivity.  I have to charge it up at night and it has a special sleeve that is worn over the top of the entire leg.  It is honestly the most comfortable thing I have ever worn.  There are no hot spots and my skin has never looked better.  It can even be set for 'running' which I doubt I will EVER use! 

Pogo;  thanks for stopping by.  I am sure you are ready for summer to end...it has been a slow transition here but I finally see the beautiful colours showing off and turned off the a/c and went searching for a space heater yesterday.  Yay!

Linda;  as always you touch my heart with your sweet comments and thoughtful prayers.  They are much appreciated.

Kathy;  how was the fair?  It was here and gone before I even realized that you would be over there...I'm about two blocks away!  Yes I think I see an end to the apple/ tomato windfall.  Made lots of bruschetta, and marinara.  Got three apple crisp and a pie in the freezer and I think I have enough apples for one more pie.  Then I froze a lot of blueberries and grapes for later.  My freezer is just a tiny one on the top of the fridge and I'm almost afraid to open it in case of a landslide.

As for the header picture, I honestly don't know where it came from.  It was in a folder marker 'autumn' and I can't remember if I took it (really doubt that) or who may have.  If it's yours let me know!   Thanks everyone.   Take care.


  1. Good question ! I do read and appreciate all my comments but after years of trying to answer them on the blog post decided to respond via e-mail especially since some questions and comments seem to require a bit more info or an answer than I am not comfortable posting in an on-line public site. If I comment on a blog where answers or replies are posted after the comment I try to get back to read the comment section again. I am still not sure which is best, so try to e-mail replies as often as I am able. I have begun to run into the same problem as you though, I get a "no reply" and now blogger takes me to the google site of many bloggers where I get lost in which blog to respond to, who is writing, etc. Probably more straight-forward than what I just wrote but not as easy as being whisked directly to the blogger's e-mail and blog.

    Not much of an answer from me, is it ? I like what you did in this post. You really do live close to the fairgrounds , and not too far from me.

  2. I reply by email usually as soon as I get it, if I'm online. As you say though, a lot of people don't have email. Then I will either comment on my blog, or if I am simply saying thank you, I may comment on their blog.

    Sometimes I go back to a post to see what was replied; but only if I remember!

    I don't see anything wrong with doing it this way, either!

    Enjoyed the explanation of your prosthesis. It sounds really fantastic. Take care and have a blessed week, Joanne. ♥

  3. I used to comment back when I first started blogging ..... until I got some really nasty and mean comments from some of the pipe line campers. I chose not to respond. I was pretty disheartened, as some of the comments were sown right threatening. My followers rose to the occasion and responded to the ugly comments in my defense. I don't have as many followers at this time and I suppose I should comment, just got out of the habit. And yes, I do check back to see if any of the bloggers I read comment back.

  4. Comments show up on my email and I usually try to respond right away. The no-reply-ers are a category in themselves--what can ya do? I cherish everyone who not only reads but also comments! I admit I rarely revisit a page after I've commented--am I bad?

  5. Hi Joanne-IF someone has an email (and is not a no-reply) I always reply directly to them. Sometimes I have their email addresses even if they are a no reply and will email them separately.
    I, for one, NEVER go back to see if a blogger replied to a comment I left. I honestly just don't have the time. Some bloggers are NoReply by choice and that is okay, too.

    Hope you are doing well. I am finally back to blogging and visiting. xo Diana

  6. I will often go back and look to see if they commented back. Email is also cool too.



comments, comments, comments! If you've got 'em share 'em. If you are a no comment blogger I will try to answer back on this post. If you are...expect a personal reply from me! Cheers, and please mind those manners.
