Good manners are v.important to me, and I've tried hard to instil a sense of good manners in my children.
I am thankful to my followers who so kindly leave me comments regularly - I really appreciate your feedback and friendship.
It is important to me to reply to every comment where I can, because to me that's just good manners. When someone pays you a compliment, you say 'thank you'; when someone makes a suggestion you acknowledge it; when someone says something rude funny, you LOL with them (virtually of course!).
I'm a little annoyed when I take the time to comment on other people's blogs and they don't reply, but I know that there are differing opinions out there about blogs & flickr and when there is a need to respond.
As far as my own blog is concerned, I've noticed recently a few folks leaving comments, but when I try to respond they are 'email@example.com' meaning there's no email address for me to reply to.
I would like to apologise to those of you who have been leaving comments but have had no responses back from me. I've tried tracking you down via flickr, but where I haven't managed to contact you, would you mind leaving me your email address for future, so that I can always reply. I wouldn't want you to think I was being rude and ignoring you!
For example, a reader suggested I write a tutorial on the recent block I made for Sarah (Brit Bee). I would like to let her know that this is a fab idea and I will get right on it. Thank you for your compliment and a great suggestion!
I appreciate every comment I receive, and while I try not to place too much credence on the number of followers I have (it's quality not quantity right?) I am touched and often amazed that I have so many and that what I have to write about is interesting enough for folks to read and leave lovely comments.
Thank you again for your patience this morning! If I could I would send you all some flowers from my garden, but as I can't here are some pics to enjoy instead.
