Are you one that is readily handy with answers to posing questions?
I hope so because I have a question. It’s actually a series of questions about the same topic - comments. Do you comment on every blog you visit? How do you comment when the post really doesn’t relate to you, but you found it interesting/informative/entertaining?
I have quite a few blogs that I try to visit on a regular bases (if not daily). The blogs are very diverse in what they offer to their readers. I look forward to reading the post and have discovered even more wonderful blogs because of it. I think there’s a blog for every topic you can think of.
Herein lies my problem. From time to time some of the blogs’ post are on subjects that I’m not directly involved in, but yet I enjoy reading them. Quick example - some will talk about difficulties raising children and pose questions for solutions, etc. I don’t have children so I can’t relate but enjoy the posts.
I want to comment to let the person know I enjoyed the post, but saying “Enjoyed post” or “Great post” and nothing more seems strange. Do you find yourself in this position? What do you do?
Along those same lines, do you want readers to comment on your post just to let you know someone has read it? Or, do you prefer readers only comment when they can really relate and discuss the post as it pertains to them and understand that some readers can‘t?
As for comments here, any and all (except spammers) are welcome. Feedback always helps and my ramblings sometimes can use a lot of help.
That’s my burning question, “To comment or not?”
Now on a happy note, congratulations goes to Michele of Southern City Mysteries. Michele is the winner of the signed copy of “B-Very Flat” by Margot Kinberg. Thanks Margot for guest blogging here and congratulations again Michele.
