Comments, comments, comments! On my blog, on my favorite blogs! What to do about comments? When I first started blogging, I spent a lot of time checking my blog, to see if there were any new comments on it. Nope, all five people who checked my blog today decided not to leave a comment...I'll check back in five seconds and see if the status has changed...no, not yet...ten seconds later..."Aha! Someone left a comment!" As you might imagine, that took up a great amount of time.
Then I learned that if you put your e-mail address in the settings of Blogger, that it will automatically send an e-mail for every comment. That is really nice! I don't have to go searching for my comments anymore (except when Blogger is being naughty, and doesn't send them to me right away). One very nice thing about having your comments e-mailed to you is that you don't miss any comments. I have had people make comments on posts that were several months old.
And then, there's the situation of comments on other people's blogs. I try to leave comments around the blogosphere, but I try not to ask questions in my comments. Because if I do, then I have to remember to go back to that post, look and see if my question has been answered. And sometimes, *gasp* that person doesn't answer my question right away! (Is that rude, or what? *Wink, wink* I mean, really...aren't they just sitting at their computer waiting for comments anyhow?)
I found this blog post regarding comments to be very true! HT to Mrs. Happy Housewife.
