It’s just a quick one today as I wanted to bring up the matter of comments on our blog. It’s always been a great incentive to write knowing that people are adding their own bit and I would like to say a big thank you to everyone who joins in.
Your comments have become an important part of the blog for everyone. I always enjoy to know that people are indeed out their reading and it’s great to have support and encouragement but it’s become a lot more than that. Take my last post on sharpening stones for example. I had hoped that being open with my own views would encourage a few people to share theirs, but I was amazed at just how far the discussion went. Grasping an insight in to so many workshops creates a far greater picture than I could give alone and I really do learn something all the time. If you have a spare ten minutes and haven’t yet checked through my last post you should definitely go and read through the comments instead, especially if you’re considering your sharpening options.
It isn’t just me who appreciates them; many people have mentioned to me how they enjoy reading through our comments (even more than the posts!) and so I think it’s well worth taking a moment to say thank you.
I don’t always get chance to reply back, often I feel the discussion is best left to flow without me butting in and I’m also without internet a lot of the time so a lovely long list of comments builds up for me to read through together. I regret not always having the time to reply back but want everyone to know that all comments are read, enjoyed and very much appreciated. I hope you’ll continue to add your own thoughts to our website and hopefully we can have a lot more discussion based posts in the future.
