My body cannot take much more of this exhaustion. Every morning that I wake up to the sound of my phone’s alarm, I think, “If it is really time to get out of bed I’ll kill myself.” The days are long and the nights are short, and my predominant feeling is one of constant pain.
Nevertheless, I care about my blog, and the people who read it. So I will continue to post during this trying time, and hopefully reap the rewards [a readership who trusts me when I say I will write every weekday possible] later on in life.
Oh, I’ll write; only I can’t guarantee I’ll be making any sense.
The good thing is, Thursday is here. And that means I get to answer a question–one of my favourite features here at Archives of Our Lives.
Q (from Loralee Choate):
How the hell and why do you have so many anonymous commenters? I read hundreds and hundreds of blogs and I’ve never seen such a high ratio.
What’s the deal? Have they told you? Is it family that hates registering for things or something?
Finally (Because this would be how I feel):
Does this not drive you nutso? Have you considered turning the anonymous option off?
A (from me):
Oh, Loralee. Your query breeches the subject that is a constant issue among the inner echelon of Archives of Our Lives cronies. To allow, or not to allow? That is my great inner debate. Poor Kyle, he thinks I should not allow anonymous comments anymore. Ever. He gets as annoyed as you seem to be.
Me? I’m not so bugged. I mean, I like readers. I do. The fact that I seem to have a million who are sneaky and unwilling to own up to their true identity…well…I still like readers.
I don’t know why I have so many. Maybe they’re all one person; maybe they’re 100 separate people.
I have considered removing the ability to allow anonymous comments–I consider it every day, and come to no conclusions.
So what’s the skinny, everyone? I have completely lost my capacity to make decisions. I am numb from exhaustion this week, and I cannot–physically and mentally cannot–decide if I should do something about this, or leave it be.
You can leave your opinion in the comment section, or at the poll to the right.
I’d be much obliged.
