Responding to Comments
Once upon a time I referred to blog posts that had no comments as orphans or something along those lines, I don’t quite remember and don’t feel like looking it up. What I can say for certain is that I remember being disturbed to see that some posts never received any feedback.
It was kind of a silly thing to be miffed about. I really don’t blog for the comments, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t want/enjoy/appreciate the feedback. It may be a secondary thing, but nonetheless it is nice to see that someone took the time to respond.
Now many years into my blogging career I pay far less attention to that than I used to. Sure, there are some posts that I think are amazing that still never receive any comments, but I don’t pay much attention to it. The comments are nice, but they don’t drive the blog.
All that being said I have a responsibility to respond to comments and I need to come clean about this. Lately I have been a bit lax about it. I read every comment that comes in and I try to respond in a timely fashion, but sometimes I fall short.
That is not to say that I do not respond, but sometimes it might take me a couple of days to get to it. My apologies.
Also, the rules of the blog dictate that I let you know that sometimes I have nothing more to say or add and as a result I not respond to a comment.
Anyhoo, that is all I have to say about this for now. Thanks for reading.
