I never thought there would be such a thing as a book blogger who didn’t answer comments left on their own blog. Now I don’t mean that you should have to respond to every comment, if some of the comments are just things like “good job!” or “I liked that book.” or whatever.
But ever since I joined the Discussion Challenge Nicole at Feed Your Fiction Addiction started up, I’ve been finding more book bloggers through the discussion posts. And from checking out their follow lists. Some blogs I may never have found if not for that challenge. And a number of them I’m now following!
However, I noticed that for every few blogs I stumbled across that were answering every comment left on their blogs, I’d find 1-2 that didn’t reply to a single comment left at all.
I get that we can get busy and time runs away from us. Or we’ve had medical issues, or whatnot. But I went back over a month on some of these non-commenting blogs to see if they ever did reply to people. And I never saw any responses. Yet their blog was still getting lots of new comments on the new posts!
It’s just a bit mind-boggling to me I guess. I mean, I love comments! I most likely talk too much when I leave a comment on a blog, as well as sometimes when I reply to comments left on my blog. I’m always excited to see that someone has commented, no matter what the comment is (except spam of course!) So to see a blogger who doesn’t reply to comments at all on their own blog is really strange to me.
Do you respond to comments left on your blog? Do you not respond to comments left on your blog? Does it make you less likely to consider following a blogger if they never respond to comments people leave them?
