I just got back from a 3-week semi-vacation the other day. I was actually working behind the scenes part-time practically every day (which is why I’d just call it a “semi-vacation”), but I dropped many of the nonessential daily tasks I’m involved in as the director of this site in order to make my vacation partner and the friends and family we were visiting a little happier.
One of those “nonessentials” is keeping up with and moderating comments, which one of our top readers actually does for us, very kindly, on a volunteer basis (and is why I felt like I could take a break from that while traveling).
However, upon returning, I did decide to catch up with a number of the comment threads. Doing so made me value, even more than before, all the great readers and comments we have on this site. There’s so much to learn and gain from the comments under many of our posts.
Certainly, not every post gets comments, or gets in-depth and informative discussions going, but numerous posts do. So, here’s just a friendly nudge to keep an eye on the comments of posts (and chime in yourself!), if you want to learn a bit more than you do simply from reading our articles.
I’ll also try to do a better job of pulling interesting facts and points out of the comments to post as full articles, but with all the cleantech stories I’d love covered every day, and all the great comments I’d like more people to see, many are surely destined to remain useful comments only to those who spend the time to scroll down a little further and read a little more. So, nudge nudge, consider doing so (or doing so more often)!
