I’ve turned off and closed comments on this blog. It occurred to me the other day that with the multitude of social outlets online–Twitter, Facebook, Google+, Tumblr, not to mention email and instant messaging–having comments on this blog isn’t really necessary and doesn’t generally add anything to the blog. If you want to give me feedback on something I’ve posted, you can do it elsewhere (and people usually do, more so than here). Otherwise, I’m just going to post what I post, without wondering what people will say about it or how it will be received.
