I’m enjoying #blogjune, especially the part where I read other people’s posts. I’m leaving as many comments as I can. People have taken the time to write so I will take the time to leave a comment. Everyone is so interesting!
I am super frustrated by the number of blogs that want me to login before I can leave a comment. Having to login to leave a comment is the number one reason I do not comment on blogs. (Although if I checked the options BEFORE I wrote the comment I might not be as frustrated. )
In order for you comment on this blog I want your email, your name, and to moderate your first comment. Easy.
Not wanting to login before commenting has nothing to do with keeping privacy. I’ll happily give out my email address with each comment. (I am thinking of implementing this on platforms I don’t know though – thanks for the heads up cuz!) It’s because there are many platforms and I have several different names – sometimes on the same platform. Either I can’t remember the login, or I don’t want it linked to my account, or the nickname I’m using is not librarykris, or it is librarykris but it’s attached to something that isn’t library related, or, or, or. So many reasons!
If you’ve made a deliberate choice to make someone login before commenting then I respect that. Good on you for knowing what you want. If you haven’t made that choice, please consider removing the barrier so we can start a conversation.
