Some new comments about comments

Everything in moderation. I apply this principle to food, drink, exercise, partying, etc. And now, I will apply it to my blog comments as well.

Why the new approach? Well, I never expected to get more than 1 or 2 comments every once in a awhile at IMS, seeing as I wasn't aiming for a discussion blog. Turns out my aim was a wee bit off -- and that's a very cool and welcome surprise!

Believe me, I love the fact you're all willing to jump in and discuss the topics in my posts. And I beg encourage you to continue! I'll just be exercising my editorial right a little more formally to keep conversations focused and friendly.

So how does this change your IMS experience? It doesn't really. The only difference in your comment process will be a slight delay between when you write the comment and when it appears on the site -- with me checking it out in the interim.

I hope you'll take a minute to read the full comment policy here. It follows standard blog comment policy, and helps explain what we all can do to keep IMS welcoming for everyone.

Ok, enough with wearing this blog moderator hat. It itches. Time to return to what I do best and love most -- writing about a wide array of topics that nourish your soul, mind, and body.

P.S. THANK YOU for being such terrific readers and responders!I know there are a million places you could devote your time and attention to, and I really appreciate you making IMS one of your stops.
