Welcome to What’s On Your Mind – a place to share your thoughts on a variety of relevant topics! So far, we’ve discussed Blog Hops and Blogging Challenges, and I’m thrilled by the quality of feedback you’re providing! Keep up the great work – I’ll be tackling many of the topics you’ve mentioned in the months to come!
This week’s topic, Blog Comments, was inspired by my friend Donna from Brynwood Needleworks. She left the following comment on last week’s post:
My biggest blogging challenge is getting back to each reader who leaves a comment. Do I need to answer every one, every time? Will people be upset if I don’t? I invest time into my blog post, thinking that IT is my communication with my readers, and then accept their comments. Then I read another blogger, chastising fellow bloggers for not responding to the comments that are left. What’s the best protocol?
I think this is a fabulous question and one we all deal with on a daily basis. I will share my thoughts later this week – but today, I’d like to hear your thoughts! The official questions are below – but please, feel free to share any thoughts that are relevant to this topic!
1. How do you handle responding to reader comments on your blog?
2. What method do you use to respond – the original blog post, the user’s blog, e-mail?
