I have been wondering what the general consensus is in the blogging world about comments and replying to comments. The first question is do you comment on blogs. I know that some people just read them and do not comment. Some of these people have never signed up for a Google account and therefore cannot comment, so I know I will not be hearing from any of you, unless you are an anonymous commenter. Then there are the ones who rarely comment unless the blog they are reading really hits a nerve or a very happy memory or something that triggers their involvement and therefore they reply. Third are the ones who have joined a blog as a follower, but only comment once in a while or never. You can follow a blog and never comment, but at least the blog’s author knows you do view the blog once in a while since you took the effort to become a follower. And then there are the ever faithful, the ones who always read your blog and comment quite often. I always try to comment everyday on the blogs I read but don’t always have the time and sometimes I don’t have anything worthwhile to say. Not having anything worthwhile to say doesn’t always stop me from commenting, or for that matter, writing a blog.
let’s see what you think about replying to comments posted on your blog. Do you ignore them or do you read them but
never reply at all? There are some who
seem to just reply to some specific comments but not to others. And then there are the ones who try to reply
to everyone’s comments. I have also
seen, and do at times myself, comments to replies to comments. Sometimes it gets to be a conversation in
itself, but isn’t that what the blogging world is all about; the interaction,
sharing, and trading of ideas and experiences?
I always try to post comments and I reply to comments posted on my blog. Sometimes when things happen or when
traveling I don’t, but I usually do try.
I have gone back to some of my past blogs and have found that I missed a
comment or didn’t reply to some, but that is rare and there is no law that says
I have to answer all, but I do try. So
tell me what you think about comments and replies and have a great day, you
