A Big ‘Thank You’ For All of Your Comments Recently!

I’m not sure the reason. Perhaps it’s because I’ve run some contests and that’s gotten people to sign up to be able to comment — that it’s not worth the hassle just to leave a comment on a blog post, but the possibility of a prize helps overcome the hurdle? But clearly more folks have signed up to be able to comment.

And I do apologize about the hassle it may take to be able to comment, I try to keep the blog comments relatively spam free and the system in place does a pretty good job of that, but it also means making commenting for the first time a bit inconvenient.

Regardless, I appreciate all of the comments lately, there’s been a nice uptick and I admit I really value the feedback. Sometimes you have a valuable perspective to offer, you own experience trying a technique I’m usggesting. Or you have some knowledge that I do not, for instance i was glad to learn that I was correct about JetBlue’s 4 hour unofficial cancellation policy, but I had caveated that I wasn’t certain about this and fortunately my commenters do know the answer.

In fact I find the comments about y’alls travel experiences to be fascinating, and I don’t even mind the occasional comment from one of you that attacks me personally using a fake handle and bogus email address. Yes, I do know who you are.

The comments help keep me going here at View from the Wing, I do do this for my own enjoyment but sometimes seeing that I’m striking a chord helps too. So raise a glass to yourself, because you’re appreciated. Thanks!
