How do you respond to the comments on your blog? Do you try to email individually or comment on post yourself answering the comments above? What do you think is the best way to respond to comments and do you respond to all of them? Do you feel slighted if you don't receive a response back from the blog owner? (question courtesy of Jenn)
Today's question is timely as I've recently been thinking about commenting and the best way to respond to others' comments. I try to do a combination of replying to comments within my own blog, as well as visiting bloggers who have commented and leaving comments on their blogs.
On several sites about blogging and attracting comments, I've seen that it is really recommended for you to comment back on your own blog, which may be true if the commentor does not have a blog of their own... But in this community, there are so many book bloggers, and I feel like it's better for me to try and visit other blogs and leave comments there. After all, we all know how much comments mean to us!!
I don't feel slighted if I don't receive a response from a blog owner. I don't think I'm able to respond to every individual comment, either, so who would I be to complain about not getting replies to my own comments?!
But everyone reading this should know that I love your comments and welcome them gladly. A huge THANK YOU to everyone who has taken the time to comment on my blog!!
