I love when readers leave comments but I do have some basic comment rules…
- Leaving a link in your comment is fine, but if your linked website looks spammy to me I’ll delete your comment.
- If your comment text is peppered with links, expect to be deleted. If you want me to check out a bunch of your killer links, a better way to get me to do that is to contact me.
- Feel free to argue a point or debate or give your personal opinion in a comment. However, if you’re an obnoxious jerk who makes everyone feel horrid, I’ll delete your comments. Be real, give real opinions, say you hate something even, but please be respectful while doing so.
- In general, if you’re a real and decent human being you won’t have any problems here. If you’re a spammy or terribly mean human, you’ll be booted.
A word about business discussions in comments:
I don’t mind someone offering an idea about where to get wedding rings in the post comments – if said post was about wedding rings. If you leave some huge eco gown review in a post’s comments, and said post is about organic flowers, it doesn’t relate, and I’ll likely delete it.
If you’re a green company owner or green retailer:
You may be the coolest eco-company on earth. You may be a perfect fit for Green Wedding Slices. Still, discussing your shop or products in the comments, you have to admit, is a little spammy. If you want a link here, or some props for your amazing eco-product, you can contact me. Tell me about your company or product. There’s a good chance I’ll write a post about it. I get a post idea, you get a plug and a link, no spam questions arise, and it’s all good.
