Okay, some of the good folks who follow this blog are really great about commenting so I have a question for them. How do you manage all that commenting?
I know it's polite to visit someone's blog after they comment on my posts. And I'm also following quite a few blogs that I like to comment on. But it takes time and the more blogs I read, the more time it takes. I realize that some of you have less time available than I do since you have a job or children to take care of. So how do you keep up? Is there a shortcut to doing this, an app that helps you keep track?
For readers who don't do this, I can explain how it happens. When I start to comment on someone's post, I usually see other comments and sometimes I can tell that one or more is from someone with whom I have something in common. Perhaps they are from my part of the country or perhaps they are a lover of gardens or birds or history, or perhaps they are an artist (which I am not) and I like to see their work. So I go to their blog and comment on something, and later they click my name and come to my blog and comment. So soon I am getting more comments, which is fantastic, and I have cool blogs to read, which is wonderful! But one night I realize it is one o'clock in the morning and my eyes are tired and my wrist is getting numb. And I still haven't caught up on commenting!
Tips are welcome. But right now I need to go to bed! Good night everyone! And thanks for visiting my blog.
