Answers to (in)frequently asked questions …
Why can’t I comment on any of your old posts?
My blog automatically closes comments on posts after 30 days. I chose this setting because otherwise I get overwhelmed by the spam comments, and also because most of my readers seem more inclined to interact with me via email or twitter – which is great, I’m better at emailing and tweeting! It seemed silly to keep them open indefinitely when the majority of comments I get in general, and especially on old posts, come from spambots.
Would you be interested in receiving products from our company for a review and/or giveaway?
In general, I do not accept free products to review for the sake of getting free stuff. I make exceptions for products I’m genuinely interested in or companies I want to work with. If you think your product might be a good fit, please contact me to discuss.
What kind of camera do you use?
My current camera is a Nikon D5100 dSLR that I bought refurbished in 2013. Previous to that, I used a Nikon D40 which was a Christmas gift from my in-laws. But honestly, these days I take most of pictures with my iPhone.
I switch back and forth between a couple of lenses:
My very favorite all-around lens is a Nikkor 24-120mm f/3.5-5.6.
For smaller subjects including food, I use a Nikkor 35mm f/1.8 lens.
Why don’t you review every book you read?
As a rule, I don’t think it’s worth my time writing or your time reading to post reviews of books that I don’t like and about which I have less-than-great things to say. I’m reading so much at this point in time that even if I only wrote reviews of books I really liked, I wouldn’t have time to write posts about anything else! I write a book review every month or so, which lets me review the books about which I have a lot to say and that I think will be of interest to my readers.
