Commenting back: Is there such thing as too late?
A while ago I posted a discussion Blog vs. GR. And then real life took hold of me, I went MIA from blogosphere for a whole month. I had a couple of posts scheduled ahead, but that was all. I didn’t post anything on my blog, I didn’t visit other blogs, and I didn’t answer comments on my blog. When I finally returned to blogging there was so much to catch up. So I went to my friends’ blogs, I posted my stuff, but I never answered comments on Blog vs. GR post. It was almost six weeks after I initially posted it; I thought it was too late to answer these comments.
But then I’ve read several discussions about commenting, which made me think about my blogging habits. In the end I went and answered all comments on this post. Two months after it was posted. I guess better later than never. And I feel good about it.
How long does it usually take you to answer comments on your blog? What was the longest you take to answer? How do you feel when blogger answers your comment several weeks later? Should we answer comments after a long break or should we just make a clean start?
There were a lot of discussions about commenting lately. Here some links:
Chachic: Comments are like chocolate
Krysta: Responding to Comments
