I’ve recently found some blog prompts over at coffee addicted writer. Despite being out of the meme schedule, I’ve decided to answer some of the prompts as I’ve found them rather interesting. I’ve decided to answer two questions with this post as I think the two are very much related
Do you request notifications of new replies when you post a comment on a blog post?
Do you reply to comments on your blog or do you figure folks won’t be stopping back to read your reply so you don’t bother?
I dont always comment on someone else’s post, and when I do, I dont always request a notification of reply. I do when I think the post is interesting enough that I want to read what other comments are out there are saying, or if I’ve posed a question to the author and hope for some kind of reply so we can continue a conversation.
Sometimes I’ve written all I’ve meant to say on the subject and dont envisage any further correspondence on the subject.
In terms of replying to comments on my own blog I try and respond to comments, in an effort to engage with the people who have had enough to say to leave a comment. Some people who post comments do subscribe to my blog, so I suspect will be back, some I hope will come back if they think the interaction is interesting enough
