In my defence, I wasn’t aware people were commenting in the land of livejournal, and so did not know to respond to them. I did check a while ago when I was first told of the lj feed but as there were no comments I forgot all about it.
I have now gone over for a squiz and seen some of the recent comments. Wow! Thanks for all the kind words. Much appreciated.
However, I still won’t be commenting there on account of the way the lj feed works. Only a handful of posts (the most recent ones) are on the feed. So every time a new post goes up an old one disappears and its comments with it. Oblivion is what awaits the comments on an lj feed.
As I am an (ex) historian it goes deeply against my grain to write words that will disappear and I admit I’m horrified at all your lovely comments dissapearing as well. If you ljers want me to respond to your comments please post them over here. The added bonus is that you get to be part of the lively convo with my regular readers. It’s fun, honest.
Of course, if you don’t want to leave ljworld—no worries—just know that my non-response is not because I’m a rude bad blogger.
So, no, I can’t turn comments off. That’s not how a feed works. Thanks!
