This week Sadje asks and do you leave short comments on the blogs that you visit or thoughtful, long comments?
I don’t think I can put a time on it to be honest, because I am responding to them throughout the time I am here on my blog.
My order of the day is usually to put out my Today is………….. post, then respond to all comments and pingbacks that have come in since I last signed off .
I read every one of the responses to the challenges I set, and acknowledge them in one way or another, be it a like, comment, or both.
Sometimes my comments in reply are long winded, others quite short. It depends on the context and content.
My thoughts are that if someone has taken the time to comment on something I’ve written, then it is only polite to respond. So far I have had few comments that have been nasty, and those that go into spam are simply deleted without acknowledgment. I check my spam and trash daily and sometimes a legitimate comment has been flagged incorrectly in which case it’s removed from the folder and acknowledged as normal.
I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes!
In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too.
On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts.
From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives.
We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
Thanks Di for answering in detail. I think it does depends on the kind of post or comment you’re responding to.
This is very apt & true.. Loved the way u said it straight.. I have rejoined blogging & would like to take an honest opinion from afellow blogger…who better than you..
Please review my site & give your genuinr thoughts.. Would be a great learning experience.. Thanks in advance
I don’t usually view sites on request. However, I am no expert and blog for myself, but from what I saw, it’s pleasing to the eye and not too complicated to follow.
I check my Span regularly, but I don’t check my Trash anymore since I had to block so many sites for spamming me.
This is a great subject, during this time of social isolation I have found less is more. Like less and comment more.
It’s always good to have contact with someone.
I respond to all the comments on my posts. As for leaving comments – I will leave a comment if I feel so moved. Some posts have a bigger impact on me (emotionally or psychologically) than others. If a post is one I like I’ll like it. If it makes me think I’ll like and leave a comment. If it is other than that I abide by “Thumper’s Rule” – If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all!
Lately I never have enough time , I am constantly chasing my tail to keep up with posts and comments….nothad time to post for three days!!!
You need a day off!!!
