I've been getting some lovely comments lately, thank you! However, I've noticed that some of my recent comments have come from no reply bloggers. Which means I can't reply to your comments personally. And I do like to reply to as many comments as possible. I don't know about you, but sometimes I find a great new blog to follow. I enjoy reading it and so I start leaving comments. And then the blog owner (who often doesn't have that many followers, they can't reply to a few comments.) never responds. Ever. Ok, they maybe have responded in the comments themselves, but honestly with so many fab blogs out there to read who goes back and checks all the comments left, after they left a comment? So knowing I get a little despondent when I never get a comment back, I tend to not want to comment any more. Don't get me wrong - I understand when someone gets zillions of comments per post they can't possibly respond to them all. But in my experience the people that tend never to respond, get less than 10 comments so surely the odd reply isn't that onerous?
Personally I'd hate for some of my lovely comments to stop because the people leaving think - Why can't this woman ever respond to my comments?! I love that my blog allows this interaction!
So please go and read this post which explains about no reply bloggers and how to remedy it - because I suspect many people that are no reply bloggers don't have a clue.
