For a spammer, or a bot, or a person learning English via blog commenting. Who, you ask? This guy:
"I know there are many good writers out there, but you really stand out from the crowd. I had to let you know how much I appreciate the info you have in this material. Thanks."
So polite, so thoughtful. Awwww, you shouldn't have.
Especially in response to a post about pretty pillows where I wrote something like 55 words. These words:
"Lately I have been seeing a lot of blogging about pillows. Specifically, not-too-expensive pillows. Perhaps I'm not the only decor enthusiast who is not willing to even consider shelling out $300 for a throw pillow?
So, I'll admit, some posts have led to click-throughs, and these were my favorite shops for not-crazy-priced pillows."
Or, how about this nice fellow:
"The quality of this article is unsurpassed by anything else on this subject. I guarantee that I will be sharing this with many other readers."
Totally restorative and inspiring feedback...to a post about the dress my kid wore to her first day of Pre-K.
Look out, world, I'm apparently a real good writer now!
And, if, indeed, you are a real person - lost among the amazing amounts of spam I seem to suddenly attract in my comments (or people with really good access to prescription drugs are just hot to share with y'all) - well, then, I am sorry for unjustly accusing you of spamminess. Drop me a line and we can talk all things textile and childrearing.
