Comments on: SILENT. SUNDAY. wife of one. mom of two. regularly emitting all manner of crap. Sun, 07 Apr 2013 08:40:32 +0100 hourly 1 By: cosmicgirlie cosmicgirlie Sun, 03 Mar 2013 20:14:20 +0000 Hello, I appreciate what you're saying, but after years of spending much of my Sunday's asking people to just read the rules, it gets a bit wearing constantly chasing people up. Since I'm not keen on losing loads of family time by sitting on my laptop, chasing up email addresses, I did actually try to track you down on twitter, which I thought might be more comfortable than leaving a "I deleted your blog because you didn't get the link right" comment on your post. There's a place for it, but I don't think it's in comments.

So, I don't leave "I removed your blog" comments in posts, because I know I don't feel comfortable when people leave awkward comments on my posts. It's a little but impersonal. Also, it's already time consuming as it is going through every single post in the first place; if everyone made the mistakes, it would be a bit of a dull day for those involved, no? So, I get the message out to everyone in one go by having the standard Silent Sunday post to refer to, with the rules, for all to see. I hope this would save me repeating myself week after week.

Ironically I think it was actually you tweeted me asking about your post, I replied and then got nothing more from yourself. There are numerous ways to contact me to find out what was happening, as people often do.

Please bear in mind that starting the Linky wasn't even my idea; those doing SS way back in the day requested it, and asked that I post the rules for others to see and refer back to. And for a LONG time, I was getting moaned at because OTHERS were breaking the rules. SS has more of a cult following than I could ever have even BEGUN to dream about. So in trying to keep the peace, I'm trying to make it as easy as possible for everyone, including me.

Just a thought.

Thank you for joining in, but please remember it's not just for my satisfaction why I badger on about the rules! Next time, maybe just ask me for help? :)

I think I have finally nailed it, no title, no tags, link to post not whole blog….. Done it all. Not sure how you remove them, but if you do would be much appreciated if you could perhaps leave a comment on the post saying why? Then we who are trying but failing could correct it immediately and join in the fun. Just a thought.

I have read the rules several times now, so hopefully future posts will be to your satisfaction, but I'm a bit of a blogging div!
