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.
