Wood Trekker is Open for Comments

When I first started this blog, I just wanted to create a place where I can post my ramblings about camping, backpacking and everything related. It was a way to write and publish my thoughts without having to get into conflicts with people on different forums. I never expected to have so many people read the blog, or care about what I have to say. After all, I have absolutely no claim to expertise when it comes to any of the subject about which I write.

Lately, more and more readers have been requesting that I allow comments on the blog. I have resisted it so far because I didn’t want this to turn into a place where people fight over issues. That being said, I’ve decided to start allowing comments to my posts. I can’t promise that I’ll be able to keep track of all of them, so if you need to reach me for a question or anything that is important to you, please, as always, send me an email.

  6. Thank you for opening the blog up to comments. I know of your concerns but I don't think you will get Youtube type trash comments here. Your blog fan base tends to be more mature and I think that is due to the content of your blog. Their is nothing her for the Zombie or end of the world crowd so they don't stick around, leaving only those who have an actual interest in the subjects you talk about.

  10. You should definitely moderate ALL comments. That heads off any problems early on. You might want to check out what I say to those who wish to comment on my blog. I haven't had any need to NOT post anything due to argumentiveness. Then again, I'm blessed with a bunch of truly NICE people as followers.
