After you leave a comment, do you go back to check and see if people responded to your comment? Why or why not?
Posting so late in the piece I have the benefit of having seen other bloggers’ responses to this prompt. There are a mix of responses from ‘no never’ to ‘I don’t know how to go back and find the blogs I’ve left comments on’.
This is a hard one for me as I tend to ‘stay close to home’ with my comments, by which I mean I visit those who either follow or visit QueasyPeasy (QP). Even when I completely agree with and admire what someone has written I find it difficult to comment if I don’t know them. Begging your pardon, I’m an introvert. I’m more likely to click the like button which for me says (quietly) – hello! I’ll also leave a ‘hello’ if I have nothing to add to the conversation because someone else has read my mind.
WordPress has a nifty gizmo (notifications) that keeps me up to date with initial comments and then comments to comments. Thankfully it does the hard work for me, which gives me time to visit or write. Thank you WordPress, I appreciate your thoughtfulness towards us (wannabe) wordsmiths. If it was up to me I wouldn’t go back to check; shame on me!
