Path to Fertility Questions and Comments
I have a problem that is driving me to distraction. Without a doubt, it is less of a problem than infertility was and that’s good to remember. That’s actually a yardstick that I use on a consistent basis. Is this as important or have the essential and significant consequences that fertility treatment cycles not working has? No? Ok, good to know and take it down a notch or two. Or eight.
Still, I am upset about this problem. I write these blogs, for you. About you. To you. With you in mind. You get the idea. It’s not all about me, at all. It’s actually all about you.
And so many of you wonderful readers respond. Often with thoughtful, honest and open hearts. With comments that are helpful and kind and educational even.
So here’s my problem, at least for right now. Because we are doing everything behind the scenes to correct this problem.
My problem is that I cannot respond on the blog itself to you, as I used to be able to do. In the past, you would write a comment, I would respond to the comment, you would see the comment. Right now, I cannot respond to you via PathtoFertility comments. Did I mention that we are working on this?
Here’s why it’s a problem. I love hearing from you. And I believe that it’s very discouraging to not see your comments post or to see them post and not see my response to you. It cuts into and stops the dialogue rather than continuing it.
It’s closing the door on a conversation instead of inviting someone into it.
Not my style at all.
So for the time being, I’ve decided on this. I will post your comments and respond to you all privately. That I can do. I can also post your thoughtful comments into a blog itself, which is also what I will do.
I have a great team who is continuing to find a way to have this work more smoothly. I have faith that will happen.
And so the conversation continues. I have a question.
What closes a conversation for you? What feels like an open door to more interchange?
