Question for the Bloggers

I have noticed something interesting in my time blogging here. Some people blog a lot, some a little. Some respond to every comment, some never at all.

What kind of blogger are you?
I put my words of wisdom into the world and walk away (never respond to comments)
I respond to only certain comments that I feel compelled to (for whatever reason)
I respond to most polite comments
I respond only to negative comments because I want to defend my writing
I respond only to negative comments because I like confrontation
I respond to every comment no matter what the content
Other - please explain

MsTrixy I Don't BLOG But Consider Myself A BLOG Busybody And I Do Frequently Comment But Will Drift Away From Bloggers Who Do Not Resond To Me. Sometimes I Get The Impression The Blogger Doesn't Like Me For Whatever Reaon Especially If They Respond To Other Comments But Not Mine. Although I Do Not Expect A Response To Every Comment I Make- If I'm Ignored I Leave And Go Where I Feel Welcome. Allow Me This Opportunity To APOLOGIZE To Anyone I Have Offended Here With Any Of My Comments Which Could Have Been Worded Less Offensively SORRY ... In Addition To This- Probably I Should Stay Away From Commenting On Politics Because Most People Around Here Are Hostile To Supporters Of President Trump My HERO Hey Everybody I'm Not Really Looking To make Enemies And I Believe We Can All Agree To Disagree- Can't We???

I will answer my own question after others have responded. I learned long ago in blogging and discussion groups that if I answer right away, it can influence other responses and I don't want to ever do that.

But the question in my mind is, should the commentor respond to the response, and should the blogger respond to that? Who gets the last word?

I'm not a gynaecologist but I don't mind taking a look.

I suppose that's a valid question for some people. If they are the kind that needs the last word for some reason.

Sometimes it can be a nice way to get a conversation started, i mostly like the comments and say so too.

I dont react to comments i consider of no use.. or stupid, shallow... sometimes i am too busy to give a reaction, i read them all.

It is MY blog, you dont have to agree, hell, you dont even have to read it!
enjoy yourselfs!

I would respond to most, if I ever get any.

This sure didn't generate much activity.

I tend to respond directly to comments if
a) they are nice and I want to thank the person
b) I feel I need to clarify a point to help them or others understand my original post
c) I feel the need to dispute something they have said to avoid the spread of misinformation.

Like rosaenaluin, I don't react to comments that I consider of no use or counterproductive. I try to not censor or delete comments regardless if I agree or not. But it IS my blog, and if someone is excessively rude or stupid, I will delete.

Also like rosaenaluin, I read every comment, whether I respond or not.

I'm not a blogger but so enjoy reading them. Some I make no comment because I just have nothing I feel strongly enough about. Those I do respond to have evoked a feeling that I either feel the need to reinforce or have a strong opinion on.

I blog now and then, or when something hits me that I want to comment on it. As for leaving comments, I normally don't unless I feel compeled to respond to something that is there. I do look to see what is in a number of blogs, especially if I want to know more about a person

Courtesy is courtesy no matter where it takes place. If someone comments on something I write, I owe them a response. The world works best when things balance out.


TheMsTrixy replies on 6/21/2017 9:57 am:
You owe them a response? Does that then follow that you feel entitled to a response when you comment on someone's writing as well?

Hmmm. Good question. I think I kinda expect and want a response. Entitled iis defined as "believing oneself to be inherently deserving of privileges or special treatment"..
Nope. Not entitled. Just expect what I'm willing to give to those who comment on my blogs.


TheMsTrixy replies on 6/21/2017 12:20 pm:
I expect you are disappointed often if you expect people to give you what you give them.

Naw. I don't have high expectations of anyone but me.
