Comments. These are a blogger’s drug. They get us “high” and encourage us to continue posting. They rock our socks.
When I visit a site, I like to leave a comment. To me, it’s like signing a guest book. However, if there are already many comments (like Kelly mentions), I will rarely leave my own thoughts.
I also expect to receive at least one comment back from you, if I am a regular commenter on your blog. To me, that’s your way of saying “Thanks for visiting!”
Yes, I am a comment whore. What can I say? I know what it’s like to post something and not receive any feedback. It can get a bit lonely.
How about you? Do you feel there is comment etiquette? Are there certain things we shouldn’t say? Times we shouldn’t comment? Or, should we be comment “whores” and comment, comment, comment no matter what?
Do tell, when and why do you comment? Do you comment when you disagree, or do you only comment when you agree? Is it wrong to disagree with a post? Is it wrong to say you disagree with a post? And, most pressing in my mind, what do you think comments are supposed to represent?
Do you feel there should be reciprocity?
