If I leave a comment on someone’s blog, I bookmark that blog under a folder called “Check Me” and then once a day, I go through that folder to see if they’ve commented back. If they haven’t commented after a week, I then delete the bookmark. I usually only have a few, maybe up to 5 bookmarks to check daily but since I’ve been going through the A to Z Challenge, the list is almost to the bottom of my screen (around 30). I got into this habit after they took away the “notify me of replies” box but that may be back now but I still use this system. Do you do something different?
I try to comment on most peoples comments on my blog. Sometimes, there just really isn’t something to say. But if there is, I say it. I don’t know if they ever know that I did or not, but I do. It actually kind of annoys me when I comment on someone’s blog and they don’t respond. On my “My Sports Obsession” blog, because it’s a sports cards blog, the majority of the blogs are run by men and the majority of them have their e-mails attached so instead of leaving a comment to their comment, you can e-mail a response. I actually like this better because I have grown some friendships with people whom I have never met. That network of blogs just seems to be friendlier. Also, if you follow somebody else’s blog in that network, they follow back. That doesn’t happen here hardly at all.
I took his picture. He hates his picture being taken. It was in the paper once and I saved it on my Kindle and showed it to him all the time and he kept begging me to delete it. Which was what he did when I showed him this picture, he pinned me against the wall and told me to delete it. I laughed at him. As you can tell, I didn’t delete it. When I see him next week, I’ll be showing him the picture over and over. Have to keep up my title of a button pusher.
