Wondering about wild grapes

Wondering if anyone goes back and checks.

Every time I leave a comment or answer one, I always go back and check to see if anyone has answered it or commented on it or about it.  I like to make it more like a conversation than a narrative.  I really appreciate all the people who comment on my blog and I always try to answer their comments.  Notice I said "people", I do not appreciate auto or machine generated comments or advertisements or. . you get the idea.

Some times I don't get around to answering comments until the next day, but I always try to reply to them all.  I went back a ways one day and found some that had been added a few days after I posted that blog and even though it was quite a few days after the post date, I still answered it.  I am sure no one would have known, but I knew.

Today got started off as a bright, sunny, and cool day.  Yesterday's and last night's high winds seem to have settled down some but it is only 43 degrees right now.  Sort of on the cool side, but maybe it will get back up in the 70's like it did the last few days.  As you can tell, I don't have a lot of neat stuff to tell you today, so just have a great day, you hear?


  1. More often than not I do. It does make it more of a conversation.

  2. I read a lot of blogs - some are my favorites and I check them first. Sometimes I forget what blogs I've made a comment, but just recently I realized that the blog owner sometimes replies Also, I get comments made to my own blog through my e-mail and again... just recently... figured out that I can reply if I go to the "post" page. This old dog has a lot of trouble learning new tricks!

  3. Sixbears, yes, I know you usually do and I do appreciate it.

    The Odd Essay, I have often wondered how many people come back and see my replies to their comments.

  4. I usually go back and check your comment section again if I have left a comment. I do that when I figure out that some folks reply to comments on their blog. But I can barely get around to reading all the blogs once, so I don't go back unless I know the comments are answered in that way.

  5. Gypsy, I am glad that I am not the only one who does so. If it seems like I don't answer some, check the next day. Sometimes I don't reply to "late in the day" comments until the next day.

  6. I try and answer all the comments that I can in a timely fashion! I think that I do get most of them, though.

    I also check back on the blogs where I've left comments to see if they are answered. Guess we all like to be noticed in some fashion.

  7. I go back to yours, and mine too. I don't comment on ones that have no reply. HJ replies to all like he's posting a comment and that works great.

  8. HJ, I know you do and you set an example for me. Most of the blogs I visit are written by considerate people who do answer comments.

    Trouble, there are a lot of good bloggers out there. You also reply to comments which makes you a "good" blogger (grin)

  9. Dizzy you make me feel guilty I do not type well I'm good at cut and paste.I'm short on words.Makes me think of Ben Wood's when he said "lately all of his friends are on the internet".I miss old Ben also Old Fool and my better half.They made life a little better as well as you.Trust me I do read an post every one of your comments

  10. Justastick, I am glad that I got up to see old Ben when he was alive and kicking. I was older than he was, but I still called him old Ben. He was so excited about getting that camping trailer ready for the trip that he didn't get to take. Thank you for reading my post. It isn't always worth reading, but I try.

  11. When I read your post each day, then I go back and see if you responded to a comment I may have left you the day before. You are one of the few bloggers that always responds to each comment and that's nice.

  12. When I know I leave a comment on a blog where the blogger leaves replies I always go back and check. I like that personal connection, and I always leave replies to everyone who comments on mine too. I don't know if they see it either, but like you I think it is important. Thanks for bringing this up.

  13. Jill, Thank you, and here I thought that I was taken for granted, but you say I am nice. I like that, thanks a lot, Jill, you made my day.

    Tammy, It is nice to hear that there are others who think like me, at least on this subject.

  14. Regarding your comment on my blog today, I think it would be great if you would do a blog on elephant stories. I don't know how else to contact you except through your blog comments, so you can delete this comment if you like. I just wanted to make a suggestion.

  15. A reader once complained about my "threaded" comments. If I leave a comment, yet it's not answered, I get the feeling the writer is just wanting comments for the NUMBERS.

    But I leave comments as a form of communication, and I LOVE IT when the person I felt was worth leaving a comment for, answers me. YAY! We've got a CONVERSATION!

    When anyone takes the time to leave me a comment, I think it's the height of rudeness to ignore it.

  16. I try to answer all comments left on my blog even though sometimes it is not possible for me to go online till late at night or if out of town for a couple a days.

    I read a lot of blogs so I am not always able to go back and read a blog owners reply. However, I go back if I have asked a specific question.

  17. DD - I'm always here, just don't comment often. I always think my thoughts aren't important enough to matter, but guess I'll try to at least let you know I'm around - also for Big Brother Hermit Jim. Enjoy your takes on all things Texas!

  18. Great info and straight to the point. I am not sure if this is truly the best place
    to ask but do you people have any ideea where to employ some professional writers?

    Thanks in advance :)
