Do you read other people's blogs and add comments?

March 21, 2008 3:59am CST
I find it interesting and useful to read other people's blogs. I can get ideas of adding a similar feature to my own blog or I see something which makes me decide I would never have it on my own blog. I don't often add a comment on a blog itself. I always think I should, and maybe if I did, I would get some comments on my own blog. What do you think? Is this something you do as a blogger? Do you mind if no-one adds comments on your blog?

I read other peoples blog or more like glance through. If I find something that is really interesting in someone else's blog I will read through it. I usually don't comment. I find that blogs are quite useful sourcs of information. Sometimes not accurate but at least the information is there.

I do see some blogs that are not worth more than a glance through.

Hello dear p2w. I don't have a blog of my own yet, but I often read some discussions about blog. I hope to know more about blog, especially those that can pay us to write. I would be very happy if I could get some information about paid-to-write blogs with thanks. Good day and happy blogging.

yeah, of course especially when you are interested to the topic. i also put some comments to some blogs. but, sad to say no one give comments on my blog, so far i got two comments and i think my blog is not so interesting. i can say that because there are people viewing my site but don't leave any comment. but it's ok though as long as they remember my blog they can always come back and leave a comment the next time they visit. hehehe you can view my blog if you want to...hehehe

Hello paid2write, I think that it is very interesting to read other people's blogs and at the same time add comments. That's simply because if I were to have a blog, I would prefer for someone to comment on my blog as well because I would feel that my blog is read and rated by others; so to speak. Even if the comments are non too pleasing, at least I would have a basic clue as to what mistakes I have made and could improve on from there. I love being a blogger and read others' blogs because it gives me a sense of knowledge and at the same time, I learn new words and improve my diction. There's a lot of blogs out there that are truly extremely interesting that I tagged under my favorites and will come back for their updates. I think that the person who has come up with the blogging world is a true genius and definitely has made us all equipped with a new standardized system for blogging and setting our thoughts out there. Talking about wishful thinking, ha! I love the idea of blogging because it gives me a personal space to voice out whatever I have stored in my mind and heart. IN the cyber world, at least, it doesn't matter if anyone reads my blog because there are so many people in the world and even if I put my real pictures, chances of them recognizing me outside are not that easy, unless I am a celebrity. But it's cool to be a celebrity blogger, right, it gives you that kind of edge in the cyber world that the reality side of the world has yet to keep in touch. Super cool. Therefore, I will continue reading other's blogs and at the same time, update mine for more updates of myself and other thoughts and feelings that I have.

You are very much welcome there sweetie. Same goes for me, I wouldn't like blogs that are not updated regularly no matter how interesting the posts had been. I would love to keep on reading updated one, because it means the blogger is alive and kicking, LOL ... Happy mylotting yea, ;)

Yes, I read other people's blog, most of the time, my friends blogs because it is our way of updating ourselves with our lives especially now that we are far from each other. And yes, I post comments for them.

I have left comments on popular blogs, where I have left a link to my blog, and have received visits. It pays to leave thoughtful comments early, on popular blogs, to increase visits, and possibly get a reply from the author of that blog...

Thanks I may try it sometime but only if I had a real comment to make.

I normally read a friend's humorous blog and comment and vote for it just to help her.She is quite successful with it. I have five of my own blogs, but only two I try to keep up with regularly. If I have something to say when I visit a blog I will leave a comment if it's not too hard to do so. I am now signed up with most of the popular comment managers like Feedburner and Disquis. Sometimes I've had interesting answers back from the authors and one even inspired a new post I made. I don't get very many real comments on my own blogs, but lots of spam to moderate.
