My friend Angie made an interesting blog post today.
And I wholeheartedly agree with her… I think we, as bloggers, SHOULD absolutely respond to the few (in my case, anyway, lol) comments we receive. I appreciate the fact that people comment, so I’m sure they’d appreciate it if I commented back (and when have you ever known me to have NOTHING to say??)…
And, I do try to comment back quite a bit (I think), or at least more than a lot of bloggers I read! I can probably count on one hand the amount of times someone has responded to a comment I left on their blog… and yeah, it’s a little disheartening (just a little).
Sometimes when I do respond to a comment someone made on my blog, I find myself wondering if they’ll even come back to those comments to SEE if I responded. I know that I don’t always do that… follow-through to see if a blogger responded to me (well, because they rarely do!). So, every now and then, I’ll respond via e-mail… because then I KNOW that person will see my response.
So, here’s the point of this post: Like Angie, I’m going to make an effort to respond more to comments left on my blog. So that means you commenters should check back, k?
And, REALLY, I encourage anyone who’s reading to comment! It really makes my day when I get lotsa comments on a post, any post… or when I get a comment from someone who’s never commented before (THAT’S like Christmas! and thanks, Libby!). It’s just nice to know you’re out there reading, even if I don’t have a clue who you are (introduce yourself!), or haven’t spoken to you since our days of playing kickball on the playground.
And, oh my goodness, when I don’t get any comments for a while, my dad decides that all of my so-called friends have abandoned me… and I think he worries (isn’t he sweet?!?!?). So, if you won’t do it for me, please comment for my dad’s sake!
