Blogger relations: Are there blogs you visit and comment on because you like their style, voice etc.(maybe you even converse with the blogger on Twitter & Facebook) but those comments are never reciprocated on your blog? Do you get a bit offended or do you understand that they may be busy?
I definitely do not visit all the people who visit me, and I hate that about myself! I try so hard to visit every blog that comments, but I never remember to visit all of them. I’m not sure why and I have no idea how to help myself do it more often. :/ That being said, I would never get angry or feel unloved or unappreciated, whatever, should people not come to my blog after I visit their blog. While we all look for comments as a way to validate what we do, I’m done hemming and hawing over it. It’s the quality of the comments that counts in the end, not the quantity. And I read each and every one, and respond to most.
Or do you comment just because you like a post not expecting anything in return?
I comment on a blog because I have something to say. Plain and simple. That being said, I don’t always have something to say beyond “AWESOME” or something similar, so I don’t always comment. My comments aren’t known for their depth, but I so try to say something of worth. LOL. I definitely read a lot more than I comment, which is probably the case for a lot of us.
Now, If someone comments on my blog with a “come visit me blah blah blah” and nothing else, the comment will get a swift DELETE on my end. That isn’t the way to get people to visit and I find it to be a very rude gesture.
