Post comments here.

NOTE ADDED 2/24/2011: Over time, I’ve gradually opened more articles to comments, so this post is somewhat outdated–but feel free to post here with comments about The Earthling’s Handbook in general.

NOTE ADDED 10/16/2009: What’s going on here? The blog software tells me lots of people access this article (47 people in the past week, and that’s been about typical for the last few months), yet hardly anyone posts a comment. Are you trying but finding it too difficult? If you have tried to post a comment but couldn’t, please e-mail becca[at]earthlingshandbook[dot]org and tell me about it. And feel free to e-mail me if you like my articles but don’t want to comment publicly, too!

This is not a blog! It’s really not!  But I can’t stop wondering whether I have any regular readers outside my inner circle of friends and family.  I only rarely get e-mails from readers, which may mean those are the only readers, but then again it may not.  Also, I’ve never seen what the comment interface of this software looks like, and I’m curious.

Therefore, I decided to set up one post that’s open to comments.

If you are a regular reader, or if you’re here for the first time but have something to say, please comment here.  How did you find The Earthling’s Handbook?  What is your favorite article?  Are there any topics you’d like to see addressed here?

  1. I get this through RSS on my LiveJournal friends page (which in turn, I read sporadically). I’m in favor of blog comments, because they are easier and shareable. For instance, I meant to send you email about the train trip, after we took ours to Denver… — EZ

  2. In my experience with publishing things, you rarely get much in the way of comments even with a very large readership–unless people are really angry about something! Jay

  3. I think I found you through WFMW about 6 months ago. I immediately read your entire archive. I like it all…the parenting articles, the recipes, even the Girl Scout stuff. I don’t have kids, I don’t cook, and I certainly don’t have a scout troop, but I find your voice refreshing and direct. I’m grateful for the opportunity to leave a supportive comment. Thank you for your blog. Keep up the good work!

  4. Hi – I know you (by name) through the PghMamasNetwork. I always enjoy your insightful and wise posts. You inspire me to try to be as sensitive a parent as you are. Thanks.- Marla

  5. I wasn’t complaining.  I was worrying that the comment feature doesn’t work right, and I still wonder about that . . . but I’ve made it clear how people can contact me if they want to, so there’s no point worrying further.This post has been up for almost a year and has been viewed over 1,000 times according to the blog statistics, so 4 comments “already” does seem like very little.  I don’t want to be constantly monitoring and replying to comments, though.  I just was curious whether I would get any if I allowed them.  What I don’t understand is why so many people click on a post called “Post comments here” if they don’t want to post a comment.

  6. I wanted to reply to your comment on our blog here in case you don’t go back to the blog. (I always forget to look back at blogs for replies to comments I have made…)

    Anyway: We are hardly thorough, Becca. But, we aim to be!

    Thank you for the Bible book recommendation you made. Sounds like a good one for our family.

    And, we don’t have TV services, but I will have to look into the show you recommended when we are at family and friends homes. Thanks! Love that it connects to virtues.

    Thank you so much for taking the time to comment.


    On another note – the grill cheese sounds yummy.
