Drop Me a Line

Thanks to everyone who comments on this blog and who has ever sent me an email. I always wonder who is reading. If you ever feel like getting in touch, please do so. My email is Maolsheachlann@gmail.com. Tell me who you are and where you're from and what you think the most stupid thing I've ever written is.

Though I've had this blog online since 2011, comments are still a rarity. I appreciate those who do comment. And I understand other people don't like commenting. I always hoped the 'comment box' would take off over time, but I'm not too pushed about it.

I have quite a few outlets for my writing right now. I have my 'View from the Pew' column in The Catholic Voice, my 'Wit and Wisdom of G.K. Chesterton' column in The Open Door magazine, I am writing a series on the greatest poems of all time for Annals Australasia magazine, I've recently started contributing a weekly show on G.K. Chesterton to Radio Maria Ireland (a new Irish radio station, which is currently only available on the internet), and an Sunday the choir at my parish church will be singing a hymn whose words I wrote. I'm very grateful for all these outlets. But this blog always has a special place in my heart, and I cherish the feedback and interactivity very much. Thanks for reading.

  1. Don't feel bad M - I've been blogging about the same amount of time and also rarely receive comments!

  2. Yes, count your blessings. Bloggers on this side of the pond are besieged not only with spam but hate messages often in the most coarse and insulting language.

    1. I've only got very rare hate comments! Maybe one or two. And usually pretty mild.

    I'm afraid I can only dip in and out of the blog. Full time job, freelance work as well, four children. I am blessed on all counts, but I usually feel too tired to say anything remotely interesting in response to your posts. Rest assured, though, that they are greatly appreciated and much admired.

    Evert thought of tweeting?

    1. I Facebook and blog, so tweeting seems a step too far!

      Just glad to hear from you again, Mick. I'm glad to hear of all those blessings, too. I had been wondering if you were still out there!

  4. For what it's worth, as a dipper (see above), I find myself drawn to Twitter far more than Facebook.

    Still out here. Keep up the great work (for as long as you feel like doing it).
