Thanks to most people reading blogs on Google Reader and other platforms like that, many of us have gotten lazy. I will admit it, I read hundreds of posts and just do not click over to leave comment love to every one. Why? Well, the simple truth is that there is just not enough time in the day. Thanks to this, I try to hit the majority of the blogs that I read and leave comments a few times a week. In addition to this, I make sure to reply to all comments left on my blog via e-mail and visit their blogs. As a community, we need to show each other some comment love.
On Thursday, I wrote Commenting on Comments after watching Telling Dad’s new song parody. It is a gem and really tells a story. We need to do more to let others know that we are reading. We all have busy lives, but taking a few minutes to let someone know at least once a week that you are out there reading and appreciating their work is nice.
So my question to you this week:
What is your general rule about commenting on other blogs? Do you have a system that you use? Please share because I think we can all learn from this and help others out with more comments all around.
Thanks to Kailani at An Island Life for starting this fun for Friday. Please be sure to head over to her blog to say hello and sign the MckLinky there if you are participating.
