Why does my blog have a comment policy? Seeing comments from my readers is like getting a letter in the mail. I love it! I invite all of you to comment on my posts. The bad news is… Spam comments. They tend to drown out all your lovely responses. I have to moderate each comment to prevent this. To encourage my readers to comment with purpose (and discourage spammers) I’ve decided to post a simple comment policy.
Comments I Love to Keep
1. I Love Comments On My Blog.
I want to hear from you. Share your opinion. Ask questions. Make suggestions. Solve a problem I have. Say hello because you’re ready to be homeschool/blogging friends. Tell me about your homeschool journey. Don’t hesitate. I want to hear from you.
2. Relevant Links are Encouraged.
After you have written your thoughtful post, share a link that supports what you shared. You can also share a link to your blog article that you think I or other readers would find helpful. If you are thinking of homeschooling, here is a great first day assignment.
3. You Don’t Need to Sign Up.
You don’t need to sign up, be a member, make a profile, blah, blah, blah. Just type your name, and say what you need to say. If it’s not as simple as that, let me know: Ashley@EmmettsExpeditions.com
Comments I Throw in the Trash
1. Cursing. Crudeness. Cut it out!
This is a homeschool blog for family friendly viewing. If your post has curse words, adult content, or is just plain rude, it doesn’t belong here. As Thumper would say: “If you can’t say somethin’ nice, don’t say nothin’ at all.”
2. No Harassment.
Be kind to post authors and the commenters on this blog. sharing your opinion is fine but if you are a bully, your comment will be marked as spam.
3. Splashing Links and Hashtags.
One or two relevant links and hashtags at the end of your comment is acceptable. If your #comment is #unreadable #because it is #full of #links and #hashtags it’s #spam. You get the idea. It’s that simple.
