Who doesn’t love comments! Engaging with my readers is of utmost importance to me, so comments are strongly encouraged here at Powered By BLING. I personally moderate all of the comments on my blog. In general, I try to respond to all comments. Typically, comments of a substantive nature will be engaged. Comments such as “cool blog” or “great post” may not receive much interaction. If your comment contains a question or information that needs my attention quickly, you should email me as it may be days before I get to all the comments on various posts. Feel free to email me at

Comments are moderated to ensure that they are appropriate in nature. Powered By BLING reserves the right to remove or decline to publish any and all comments that are deemed inappropriate by Powered By BLING. Examples of such comments include, but are not limited to, those containing rude, profane, discriminatory, or offensive language as well as comments that appear to be spam or unrelated to the content of the post.

General Commenting Rules:

  1. Please refrain from profanity, bullying others, and leaving non-supportive content.  We are all in this together and should support each other, not tear each other down.  Quality debating a topic is encouraged.  Do Unto Others…..!
  1. I reserve the right to edit and/or delete any comments for any reason.
  1. I will respond to comments/emails within 48 hours.  If I can’t answer your question completely in that time frame, I will at least acknowledge receipt of your email so that you know I’m working on it.  Keep in mind, like many of you, I work full-time and have a family.
  1. As a general rule, if a blog post is more than 30 days old I probably won’t respond to any new comment/email questions.
