So I was with some friends this weekend and we were talking about blog reading, I mean when we weren't talking about patterns or fabrics, or trims, etc.! *LOL* You know what I mean, right?! The conversation was all sewing all the time...anyway one of the topics that came up was blogs, blogging and leaving comments.
Now as I explained to them and I've said numerous times here...I am a comment ho. I may not respond to all of them, but I do read each and every one of them and appreciate the time a person takes to leave a comment. And the discussion turned to what makes a good comment...this was a pretty interesting discussion to me.
I don't know about you but I like not only to receive comments but to give them too...because to me visiting a person's blog is like visiting their home. You always acknowledge the person for allowing you into their home and you should thank them for taking the time to host you. If you are really into the social do's and don'ts, you even try to bring a small gift to show your gratitude or appreciation for them hosting you. That's what comments are like to me...my way of saying thanks for taking the time to share your "whatever" with me.
So what about you? Do you or don't you comment? Is there a reason that you don't? I mean I totally get the don't say something at all if you ain't got nuthin' nice to say rule...but it was perplexing to me and my friends why so many people read blogs and don't say anything...nuthin, nada, zip!
It's sort of like ghostly appearances...anyway, I know sometimes people read at work and don't have the ability to comment (totally get that one!) I mean your day job is soooooo much more important than leaving a comment...and some people don't have a Google ID or an Open ID so when anonymous comments have been turned off...then you can't leave a comment.
But what about the rest of you? Is there a reason you don't comment? Now please don't feel like you have to leave a comment...*LOL* This was just a post wondering what was what based upon a conversation with friends. Or maybe I'm just delirious from all the cold medicine I'm taking because I've managed to catch the cold from hell...probably shared with me by the germ catcher himself - The Little Prince!
So comment or don't...I was just pondering...
