So I don’t actually have a post for you today. Instead, I have a question.
What are your thoughts on the whole comment/comment response thing? Generally I respond to your comments on the post itself but I realized something today and that is that no one ever goes back to the post after they comment.
I comment on a TON of blogs and never necessarily know if the author has seen my comment, read it, or responded to it because I don’t leave the page open and refresh and wait for a response to my comment. And while I know that hearing back isn’t the point of commenting, I feel like not knowing if there is a response is kind of like yelling into the wind (pardon the terrible cliche)–you just don’t know if anyone ever heard what you said. You miss out on the conversations and the banter and the relationship building.
One of my favorite bloggers, Not So Jenny at it’s always like this always e-mails her response to comments. A lot of times, this leads to a back-and forth volley of e-mails which I love!
So my question is this: am I the only one who has no idea if their comments are being heard? (Okay, I lied, I have 2 questions) Would you guys like it if I e-mailed you back when you comment or would you prefer that I just keep my responses on the post?
