Do you comment on every bog post you read? Nah, I didn’t think so, I don’t either.
That bein’ said let me say this. Sometimes I feel like I should be commentin’ on them, mainly out of courtesy if nothin’ else. I mean, the person writin’ the post has spent, sometimes, hours slavin’ over the post, sometimes, like me, it only takes a few minutes to write a post.
Now, there are a few blogs that I will comment on every time there is a new post and this is because not only do I really enjoy the post but it is also a sense of community. I have never been the type of person that has the attitude of “you comment on mine I’ll comment on yours”. That’s just silly, but I’m sure there are bloggers out there that do that.
DO I expect a reply to a comment I have made? Yep, and again, that’s only courteous. I will reply to all comments made on any of my posts, even if it’s just a simple Thank You. I know this ain’t just the hillbilly in me cause I have read other posts on this subject and other people have the same opinion I do.
The “Like” button is my friend. I will (usually) like every post I read, if I truly like it. Of course, if I don’t like it I’m not gonna finish readin’ it, or ever start to read it for that matter. And there are times I will “Like” and comment too, other times, not so much.
Everybody is different I suppose and not everybody thinks the same way I do and that’s ok.
Oh yeah, somethin’ else I wanted to say concernin’ comments. I have seen on some very popular blogs where people will comment just so they can say they did. Their comments have nothin’ what-so-ever to do with the content of the post or on the other end of the spectrum there are your “pseudo trolls” that will comment just because, they really have nothin’ to say other than to post a comment although their comment pertains to the post.
Pseudo Trolls – People that comment just to be seen on a blog and to hopefully get a response from the blog author. Sometimes they will actually leave a link to their own blog for publicity.
So there you have it, my outlook on commentin’. I’ve got more to say about it but I’m too lazy to type it all right now and besides, I had an idea for another blog post while I was writin’ this one.
Thanks for readin’
