Why I choose NOT to Moderate Comments

I’ve received quite a few emails recently asking why I choose not to moderate the comments on my blog. Well, the main reason–I want my blog to be real and I want readers to feel like they can voice there opinions–even if they don’t think myself or other reader will necessarily agree with them. Of course, if a comment is disrespectful or inappropriate I will most likely delete it.
I honestly feel that the most important part of my blog is the comments! Questions are answered in the comment section, tips are given, friends are made and so much more. For me to go and start moderating comments, would mean less time to post deals. Also, when you moderate the comments they will not post right away, so if you have an immediate question you need answered, well, it may not get answered very quickly… especially if I’m out running errands or not by the computer to approve comments.
I’m sure most of you know that the discussions on some posts tend to go way off topic (here’s an example of that). I don’t really have control over this. However, I have to admit, sometimes I do find it quite entertaining!:) I especially got a laugh out of this comment, “OMG- I freaking LOVE the internet! Only online could a gum coupon turn into the mommy wars!”
Anyway, I hope you all understand why I choose not to moderate comments.
