I follow a lot of blogs. Do I read them all? I would say I check about 90% of them on a regular basis. During the week, though, I don’t usually leave comments. I tend to do a blog catch up on the weekends and go through and leave comments. Man is it exhausting, haha. Anyone else feel that way? πŸ™‚

Anyway, how do you guys feel about commenting? Like, do you like it when the blog author leaves comments on their own posts in response to other comments? Do you check back on posts to see if they’ve done that? I’m not one to respond to my comments, but I think it’s cool when other bloggers do. I’ve seen people use other commenting systems other than the Blogger one that makes it easier to form a conversation, too. I don’t like having to download/install something, so I probably won’t switch to one of those, but I do think I might start responding to comments. I just need the time, haha.

    I agree – it is hard to catch up but I do make an effort to do that. I always try to leave comments when I can. Sometimes, I do answer the comments on the blog (but of course, since I’m halfway across the world…I usually reply late.)

    I do my best to comment on others’ comments on my posts, but I can’t always do it. Now that I have a certain “To-Be-Published” book to edit, it’s probably gonna happen less and less!

    I follow a lot of blogs too so I only comment if I have something interesting to say :). As for comments on my blog, I use the email updates so I can respond that way and know they’ll read it. The only problem is that not everyone leaves an email address.

    I’m not one of those people who comments on a bunch of posts with little benign comments like “Great Post! Love it!” I only comment when I want to add to the conversation. For that reason, I also subscribe to comments when I leave a comment, because I want to see where the conversation goes.

    I usually try to respond to comments left on my posts, as long as I have something worthwhile to say.

    I try to comment when I feel I can contribute. I also try to respond when I can to comments on my own blog. Sometimes life and time constraints mean my comments are not timely, though.

    Blog commenting can be exhausting. I spend twice as much time reading and following others blogs than I get to spend on my own blog. I wish I could/would comment more. One thing is for sure, I appreciate every comment that comes my way. πŸ™‚
