Due to constant spam comments on this blog, I’m joining Michael Hyatt and others, and turning off comments on this blog. Most of you have never made a comment on any of the posts here (which is totally fine!), so it doesn’t seem to be something that will turn you off in any way. Most of you who do communicate with me do so on facebook or by email, anyway.
If you ever want to make a comment, feel free to go to the HarshmanServices facebook page and do it there, or email me. My email is Jennifer at this domain.
Spam comments waste time
It takes about ten minutes every day to delete page after page of spam comments from my posts. Ten minutes might not seem like much, but when it’s for a hated task, it can seem like a long time, and ten minutes a day is more than an hour a week. Ideally, I can write a couple thousand words or edit ten to fifteen pages in that hour. Time isn’t something that can be “saved up” or anything like that, but even short durations of time do “add up” in a way, if put to good use.
I’d rather devote that time every day to writing, or editing, or looking at videos and pictures of cute puppies. Admit it, looking at cute puppies sure beats deleting twenty pages of spam posts every day. 😉
I realize this post is coming out on April 1st, so I want to be sure you understand that no, this is not some attempt at April Fool’s humor. It’s a shame that spammers ruin so much for people, and waste so much of other people’s time. Be safe out there, everyone. Make the wisest use of your time, and yes, sometimes that involves having fun and relaxing. This, from the Jenergizer Bunny. I know. Wonders never cease. Enjoy the puppy.
