I love getting comments on my blog. Love. Them. Maybe it's my deep-seated need for approval, maybe it's proof that I'm cool, or maybe it's just nice to have a fan or two. It makes me happy to open my email and see that someone has left me a note. It's all so very Sally-Field-You-Really-Like-Me!
When I read other blogs, and leave comments, sometimes those bloggers respond to my comment. How cool is that? Return comment luv on my comment-luv!
I have noticed though, that when I try to respond to the emailed comment, it's not a valid email address (firstname.lastname@example.org). Some of my frequent commenters have given me their email addressess, so I can contact them that way. If a commentor has a blog, I can click the link, and if there is a contact email on there, I try to respond that way. But sometimes they don't have their contact info listed. And that makes me sad, because I want to return the luv.
Anyway, my point is, I read every comment. I also have saved all my comments in a folder in my email. Yes, every single solitary comment that has ever been left on my blog has been put in my virtual scrapbook.
So, if I have never responded to your comment or visited your blog, please don't think I'm ignoring you. It's not for lack of trying. (Note- I use Blogger so if there's some setting that I've turned off that will enable me to do respond, please enlighten me).
