The Hatches are Closed

A quick update to Intentional Sensibility that you would probably not have noticed if I wasn’t pointing it out: I’m turning off comments.

Why? Most of my readers aren’t interested in commenting. I respect this behavior, because I’m not inclined to comment on sites I read either, no matter how ‘engaged’ the content makes me feel.

I think the real benefit of a decent site, which I hope mine is offering, is found in the content. Since some of my content is about productivity, I want to consistently support yours. My opinion on the matter is that 99% of web comments and the effort to write them is a waste of our time.

If a comment is really worth writing and reading, it’s just a well performed via the site’s Twitter feed if you want to make it public or emailing me if you would prefer to make it private.

(The title of this post is based on this other one.)
