Let’s start with a giveaway, shall we?
Here’s how it will work. Each and every time you leave a comment on any Sprig to Twig post between now and St Valentine’s Day, your name will go into the hopper. On February 14, the Day of Love, we will draw one lucky winner to receive a set of note cards culled from the best of last year’s garden photos. Sound like fun? I think so.
Now I have a question to throw out for your consideration. A while back, someone raised the question of closing their blog to comments. At the time, I thought “What? That’s the best part! Why would anyone do that?” Lately, though, a number of odd comments have made it through my filtering system. Mostly they are complimentary and sound almost like real comments, except for some very odd syntax here and there. Sometimes they will come in batches with almost identical wording from supposedly different sources. I am flummoxed by these, as I don’t want to ignore or reject legitimate new voices. I don’t really understand what there is to gain by these tactics. Anyone have any thoughts or similar experiences/advice?
