Blog Etiquette

I feel I need to blog about this subject because of a conversation I had last night with my parents. We were out to dinner and they started talking about something that was on my blog. Well, this was a surprise to me because they never leave comments, so I had no idea they even read it. Apparently, they read it regularly. Thank you, by the way.
I think I speak for anyone who has a blog, when I say one of the best things about it, is reading the comments.
I can't count the number of times Seth has said to me "so and so loves your blog and reads it all the time". Again, this is a surprise to me because they NEVER leave comments.
You know who I'm talking to people. (the person at church today who will remain nameless, who said they liked something on my blog, but admitted they didn't leave a comment).
I understand that not everything on my blog is comment worthy. But if you like something I've said I would LOVE to know about it. I in turn will be better about commenting on your blogs.
Thanks for letting me vent. (another great thing about blogs)

Well, I look at your blog all the time, and comment, so I think I am exempt from your vent. Right?!

Chuck said...

I read your blog and I have nothing to say. What are you gonna do about it?

Kira said...

thank you! seriously i might have to copy you and post something similar on mine. i feel like i'm snooping into someones life if i don't leave a comment. i have people talk to me about my blog all the time and i wonder why they don't leave a comment, cuz I too love it.

Jenny of course you're exempt from my vent.
Chuck on the other hand...you better watch it or you're not going to be able to get on this blog. I know how much you love it.
And when don't you have something to say?

I love this post! I need to be better about commenting 'cause there's lots of times I read people's blogs & want to, but just don't. I WILL NOW! I like it when people comment on mine, too!

FAVORITE POST EVER!! I hear this all the time too. Why not comment? If you ask for an invitation and take the time to log in to look at it you might as well comment, right?

Ha! True true. You are not the first to vent about this subject on their blog, so I agree it must be an issue. Good thing both you and I enjoy commenting. :) p.s. Love your Santa picture below.

Amy said...

I totally agree!!! I am always, always interested to know who is reading my blog, not that I think a lot of people are...

Sissy Jackson said...

C Crane said...

Liz said...

Treion Muller said...

sorry to break it to you, but I'm one of those people, I read your blog all the time, don't hate me Hed.

Chels & Treion , what the? I had no idea you were looking at this. Especially Treion. You're dead.

Nate, Jenny and Amelia said...

Ditto. I always try to comment because it sucks when you post something and get 0 comments. It feels like such rejection! I do love your posts. They are witty and entertaining!

Sissy Jackson said...

1-5-10 FYI...I have been GOOD about leaving comments...I like what you had to say...Makes me laugh!!!
