(Argument by Sue R B)
My week of working on my blog continues! I’ve finally gotten around to making a comment policy. I have such wonderful (as well as knowledgeable) readers that I really haven’t had a need for one until recently. In a nutshell, please continue to leave your thoughts, questions and recipe issues in the comment section! They are so valuable. Just do so without name calling or rudeness. Here’s the full info.
I have always loved receiving comments from readers here at The Nourishing Gourmet. I find that many of my readers enrich a topic by sharing their own personal experience and expertise and I think that’s so important. Sure, this is my blog where I share my ideas and thoughts, but I am just one person. It’s valuable to hear from you all. I learn from my readers too! I especially love how those experienced in an area will provide help to other reader’s questions. So valuable and helpful! Thank you!
To continue to keep a safe place for us to share, I’ve realized I need to come up with some type of comment policy. Because this blog often discusses different health food topics, people can get a little religiously heated about their own personal beliefs on what is good for you and what’s not. I’ve rarely had a problem with anyone commenting and welcome discussions of differing views, but recently there have been a few people who have made me realize a need for a comment policy. So here it is!
1) Disagree with an opinion I am expressing? Feel free to leave a comment explaining why. I think that it’s often helpful to hear other sides and different opinions. It can enrich all of us to hear from each other.
2) However, all comments should be made with courtesy towards others. I find that the realm of “health” and “food” can attract fanatic opinions, which, when crossed, can cause a heated reaction. I love discussions. But what I don’t like is comments making attacks on people (or me), name calling, or just being plain rude. Because I am a busy women who doesn’t have time to “deal” with rude comments all the time, I will sometimes choose not to post a comment which is unreasonably rude. This rarely happens (I’ve probably done this a total of three times). So, if you feel you have something important to add, please keep your words kind.
3) Your comment wasn’t published, what happened? Like I said, I very rarely won’t post a comment because I consider it offensive or too rude. Most likely my site malfunctioned, as it has been recently. Sometimes I will click on a comment to “publish” it, and it won’t for some reason. If your comment didn’t go through, please feel free to leave a second one. I apologize for the first comment not going through.
4) Having trouble with a recipe or just have questions? Please feel free to leave a comment saying whether you liked or disliked a recipe, or explaining a problem you had, or just a question. Even if I don’t get around to answering it, often other readers will jump in to help!

I had to do this at one point. Sad that it’s necessary, but it can be at times! 🙂
It’s sad to know that someone was rude on this blog. I have always seen nice folks’ comments. I hope the rude folks reconsider their words and their effect on others. We are all here to learn. I really like your blog Kimmie, you do a great job.
The tone in which you communicate to your readers invites thoughtful commentary and kind responses. I think three poor posts is a reflection of that; keep up the fabulous work, please!
We just listed this blog and many of your fellow bloggers on our local WAPF resources list.
Thank you for the information!
Shame you have to do this, but I’ve had to moderate my comments on my blogs as well. So, I understand.
I’ll keep reading! I enjoy your blog.
There’s only been one thing that annoys me. Myself, that I can’t do everything you teach as fast as I want to do it. Seriously though, you can teach an old girl new tricks, and when people ask me why would I bother at my age it bothers me. I feel better, and I’m passing this to my kids and grandkids. I used to think Little Debbie oatmeal cookies were healthy. LOL!
As far as I feel, is if I didn’t agree with something, I’d ask more questions about it so I understand it better. We should all learn to agree to disagree if it comes to that. I love the motivation for keeping me going in the right direction.

This is all common sense that you think you wouldn’t have to explain to readers, but such is the world we live in!
