Blog comments-What the deal?

Real Estate Agent with Sun Real Estate, Inc

I'm new here and don't know the ropes as well as some others. When I read an interesting blog I don't always have something profound or in depth to say but I do like to let the author know that I enjoyed his/her blog and appreciate the time and thought it took to put the blog together. I would love to have comments letting me know that my blog is being read! It seems that a simple "great post" or "thanks for the info" is irratating to some of you. So now do I continue to let my fellow Activerainers know when I appreciate their work or simply keep it to myself.

Yes Ma'am! LTW said I should so here goes.

Thanks to each and everyone of you who commented on my post. Can't believe my little rant earned me a feature..WOW! I seem to have touched a nerve. I would like to make it clear that I do NOT cut & paste for points but I can see how that might bother some people. I will try to be a little more "profound" in my comments from here on but don't be shocked to still see an occasional "great post" from me.

Sometimes I just takes understanding where someone else is coming from to know if you need to make a change or stick to your guns.

Again thanks to everyone! The advice, suggestions, critiques or simple 2 cents are always appreciated!

Well said! Do what YOU want to do! We all know that we can't please everyone all the time.... I think Ricky Nelson even wrote a song about it!

I agree. I don't always write much because I don't know what to write but I always like to write something so people know that their blogs are being read.

My pet peeve is when people do not take the time to read the comments before/after they post.

Many comment streams become a great discussion forum filled with valuable content! Like this post, I come back often and see how the comments are flowing, and learn a lot about the topic, and people, because of it.

This is a means to learn, to share, to gain contacts, and to gain search rankings.  Giving and getting replies back from the receiver will give you a nice pump for the day.  Giving is more rewarding....if the blog is worth a hoot.  If it is not or of bad taste, I ignore them, as making bad replies makes the replier look bad to all.

Robert, saying "Thank you" and acknowledging someones work is always appreciated.  I am a lot like Harrison in a few comments above in that I try to read the others' comments and do come back to a blog after I comment.  I learn as much from the comments as I do the posts.

I agree completely.  What bothers me is a blog that has little to contribute.

-smile - Still like me?

Like you, I tend to comment to at least show that I read and appreciate the time to post it if it is worthy of my comment.

But then, there are posts that just make me so tired reading all the bunched up words - those I really skip.

You'll enjoy your time on here. Welcome on board!

Bob I would welcome the idea of a short comment instead of a three page rant.

Amazing!  Why would anyone bother to even comment negatively when you wrote a nice comment on their blog!  Unbelieveable!  I am new too and would never have even thought of cutting and pasting comments. How ridiculous!  Keep on sharing your comments Robert!
