Have you noticed? No comments on my blog


The first week of February 2017 is here. It's not going to be warmer anytime soon in Toronto but daylights hours are getting longer. I want to continue yoga practice keeping current lifestyle. Now is around 5 a.m. I went to bed last night at 9:30. The ashtanga yoga half primary practice starts at 7.

In January I had 16 yoga practices. I could do better but I spend a way too much time customizing layout of this blog. In the last two weeks all my free time at home is spent on HTML/CSS and Javascript code. Also, I was super busy at work so I feel pain in my eyes, I strained the eyes from too much time looking at computer screen. I really need vacation.


In seven days I will travel with the Dreamer to Montego Bay, Jamaica. I was so busy last week I did not have time to think about our vacation at all but now I feel excitement...

As you have you noticed, I have no comments section on my blog. Should I allow comments here?

Chances are, when you think of writing a blog, you may also think of commenting. Comments have been a great feature of writer/reader interaction since the beginning of online journals. Without comments, is a blog really a blog? Is blogging just about publishing content? Is it also a kind of two-way communication?

I am not sure to answer these questions. In my previous blog, exploring dreamstate, which I wrote for about three years, I had comments enabled. A successful blog come with its readers, so I felt that the least I can do for them is to allow them to have their voice, be heard if they choose to comment.

To be quite honest, I did not enjoyed in replying to various opinions about the topics I wrote. The readers takes the post as something important. I don't think the words matters. Everything what we say is a lie or at least temporary truth. I don't stick to the one point of view although I know fiercely to defend my opinion. This is all just a play, there is nothing serious about it.

In a way, I find it easier to simply post content and disable the ability for people to write their own opinion, I know, it sounds like “my content is good enough as it is and your opinion doesn’t matter.”

As commenting grew on my previous blog, I found that I was spending a lot of time trying to craft my answers, taking care of being polite replying to readers wisdom. A certain readers would spend hours of their own time writing comments just to point their own ignorance. They do not read my blog on daily basis and they don't understand what I want to say.

I don't understand a thing about human behaviour. They are so many readers on my blog and mostly they come just once. They are people who'd stumble on this site for the first time and can't figure out what the hell is going on because they’d been watching TV all their lives. They’re confused with my words and... they will continue believing what they believe.

I don't allow comments at zmark.ca in the first place: because I want freedom. I firmly believe that only commodity we have in this life is our attention. It is so important to at least know where we put emphasis into where our attention falls. In other words, I want to be conscious.

I don't want internet strangers deciding where my ideas, creativity and time need to go. If they like my blog, it means they are in good mood at that particular time, nothing else. I am aware of people who like it and have asked me to become friends on Facebook, just to dislike it couple posts further.


I want to say a huge Thank You to all my readers. There will be no commenting on this blog. I am sorry, but not sorry.
