On Why I Don't Comment on Comments
In most of the writers’ groups I
belong to, there is at least one conversation devoted to the topic of comments
and why we don’t comment on other writers’ blogs.
Each time I read one, I vow to read
a blog or two and post a comment in return: to leave my virtual calling card.
I sift through several blogs before choosing the one to respond to.
Reading a blog is sort of like
reading the editorials. Reading comments is like asking people what they think
about the editorials.
I don’t do that.
So while I peruse, sift and skim
blog posts, I rarely glimpse or acknowledge the comments of others.
Comments are like undergarments. I assume people have them, but I’m not all
that interested in seeing the general populations’.
