Checking for a pulse...

In the past year, I've noticed that I don't receive comments on my blog posts nearly as much as I use to. I was having lots of issues with spammy commenting so for a while I had to turn on comment moderation. This means that your comment could be left and would be posted once I reviewed it. That's when I saw the comments drop off to next-to-nothing.

I myself don't visit blogs nearly as much as I use to. That's why I love Instagram and all the other "quickie" methods of seeing creative projects. Just a quick hit of the LIKE button and I move on.

So I'm asking you, my creative friends and followers, is this the case for you as well? Or perhaps you've tried to leave a comment and had an issue? Either way, I'd love your feedback.

I'll always keep my blog as my home base. No worries there. Thanks for taking a second and leaving me your feedback on this. It's very important for me to know what's happening, where the comments have gone, and how you're feeling about my content.
