Those of you who know me know that I love the fun we have in Comments. What amazes me is that I can basically type what I like, sometimes taking the mickey, other times flirting almost going over the top. Yet you love it and always come back for more in subsequent posts. I go back and read some of my old comments and cringe, thinking, did I really say THAT to her !! I DO think about what I write occasionally !!
Now some gripes about Comments:
- I’m sorry but I can’t stand bloggers who can’t be bothered to answer comments. Why don’t they just switch comments off and save the writer the time and effort in making a comment.
- Sometimes I want to make a comment then I find I have to fill in a form asking for the last time I had sex, my cats’ ages and what I had for tea. I don’t have time for the email address and so on. Bye !!
- I know some bloggers have loads of comments. Fantastic !! I usually wait a day or so before I comment otherwise I get 50 comment emails in my Inbox usually just saying thank you as the blogger answers so many in one hit.
I have so much praise for those of you who actually read the comment made and answer it fully with thought and the knowledge that the person has put him/herself out to say something about the post. Respect !!
Many of you have had a good moan about this. There is usually no problem in linking to another person’s blog from your own blog’s LIKE email. But go into another blog and click on a LIKE gravatar link and something like this comes up in the Gravatar:
Hello. My name is Amanda. I am 24 and live in Greenland. I have 24 lovely husbands and 24 bouncing babies. I am a fully qualified SEAL who knits and cooks on top of Mount Everest. Please visit my blog for instruction on monogamy, protection against unwanted pregnancies, knitting on SEAL operations etc.
Then NOTHING. No link to her blog !! That infuriates me !! I have always wanted to be a SEAL who knits !!
If you haven’t a link to your blog from Gravatar please make one, because I am not going to try to Google you. I am not able to visit your blog and learn how to become a SEAL who knits.
