Comment Bankruptcy

So over the past couple weeks, the level of commenting at The Humble Libertarian has gone way up! Awesome. I've really enjoyed the interaction and engagement from all of you and am glad to see this group of readers become a more interactive community.

But for the next week or two, I'm going to declare "comment bankruptcy" -and resist the temptation, however strong, to respond to your comments very much. The reason for this is so I can focus as much time as possible on creating a lot of the great content I'm just sitting on right now.

Really it's time bankruptcy more than anything. I've got a list you wouldn't believe how long, of great article ideas, some of which are like a month old, and I still haven't written them yet! I know you guys are enjoying my responses to your comments, but I bet you'd enjoy some even better content upon which to comment even more!

So I'm going to buckle down for the next week or two and focus purely on writing out these articles (and making these videos) and getting them published to The Humble Libertarian (and elsewhere!). I will definitely still read all your comments. I get an email notification every time you leave one, so I will still be reading them all, just not taking the time to respond to as many of them as I have been doing these last couple weeks.

Regular readers- this means I need your help. You guys know how I think, and many of you are quite articulate defenders of libertarian ideas. When other commentators leave questions, challenges to libertarian ideas, (etc.), I really need you to step up and engage with them, respectfully and artfully handle objections, leave the occasional "Great thoughts!" kind of comment on a n00b's great thought that he or she is really proud of and will be disappointed about if no one responds to it, and of course, keep the funny comments coming.

We can't take life too seriously. A revolution without dancing is not worth having, neither one without laughing.

You guys are great! I love you.

And now your moment of Zen:
