12 June – Is Anybody Listening?

After you leave a comment, do you go back to check and see if people responded to your comment? Why or why not?

 

I’m not really in the habit of commenting, so I don’t do it very regularly. There have been times where I have left comments asking questions either to the author of the post, or to their fellow readers, and in those circumstances I generally subscribe to alerts (where possible) if somebody replies to my comment.

In doing so, it opens a dialogue between people who otherwise would have never ‘noticed’ each other. On occasion it has even led to these strangers then following my comments and viewing my blog to see what I have to say, and sometimes they end up subscribing which is kind of cool.
