Change to comment period

Just wanted to let you know that I have closed comments on posts that are over 90 days old.  When a post hits that mark, comments on that post will automatically be closed.

I had left them open because I did not want to exclude the comments of those who might come across a post they like long after it has been posted.

I am closing them because my experience has been similar to that of a friend who had a blog.  The only people who comment on posts that old are spammers.  That didn’t bother me for a while, as I’d have only one or two spam comments to moderate every once in a while (there are thousands that I never see — I see only those that made it past the automatic filter).  Lately, it hasn’t been unusual for me to need to moderate 10 of them an evening.

I don’t need to be doing that.  The time is short, and I don’t need to be wasting it on moderating fake comments.

I love getting comments.  If you really want to comment on an older post, send me an email through the contact page, and I’ll reopen it temporarily for you.  :)

Thank you all for coming here and reading.  I apologize for not posting as much as I thought I could around this time.  I had forgotten that I needed to work on the family calendar when I said that!  I’ll be posting plenty in a few weeks.

  1. Hi. This is my first time visiting your blog. I was trolling the internet looking for something interesting to read. It was a long and convoluted path to your blog, but I am glad I made the trip:) I went all the way back to the beginning and read every post. Just wanted to say I really liked your raised garden bed at your Uncle’s house. I’ve thought of doing a raised bed, but I never thought of putting the tall posts and frame there for climbing vines and hanging baskets. What a terrific idea! I have your blog bookmarked and look forward to reading your adventures as you continue on the road to frugality and self sufficiency. I am very much interested in such endeavors with the hopes of walking my own path in the near future:)
