Is it just me or...
do I suck? Or does it happen to you as well? I leave comments on blogs and on some of them I never get a reply. Not a "thanks for commenting", a reciprocal comment or an e mail. Some of these blogs I have been reading for a while now and nada! I wish I could just leave but I have actually come to care about what happens in these people's lives.
Ok just to clarify. I am talking about people that have never, not even once left a comment or an e mail. Never. Ever.
I just realized today that my hair is finally long enough to brush again. It is still very short! I have been wearing it spiked and get lots of compliments on it. Would I shave it again to raise money for cancer? Yes! Would I shave it again just for fun? Not in this lifetime!

Oops, I have a feeling you might be writing about me. I've really been embarrassingly poor at
responding to my comments, something I used to be really good about. If so, I'm sorry. You're the best commenting reader I have and I know it!

I know you said you couldn't comment on my blog and I sure miss them. You always have something nice and encouraging to say. I hope you know I visit almost everyday. I may not always comment, but I drop by!!
We love you too!

You haven't visited me, but I saw your comment on my friend Daisyhead's blog, and thought it was especially kind, one she'll find comfort in.

Heaps of people never respond. i dunno - maybe there there's some sort of blog ettiquette that some people are oblivious of.

To be honest, I was one that couldn't leave comments for you for several weeks.. I was using blogsome and didn't have a blogger name to sign into. Maybe if you could somehow set it so everyone could comment, not just blogger folks (?)

I know what you're feeling, though. It's frustrating to be spreadin' the love on others' blogs and not getting it in return. But you know.. it's funny.. but sometimes you gotta give comments and not expect to get reciprocation. Some people seem to think you may be leaving comments just to draw traffic to your stuff, regardless of how genuine your words are. Some are just buttheads and you'll never win. This blogosphere is a strange place; it seems some need to see a gazillion comments from you on their blog before they'll warm up to you and do it in return. *shrug

I think some folks just don't understand the blogging world. Maybe others don't care. I never care if someone reciprocates or not because I write for myself and my family, mostly. Of course, comments are nice and I still comment on other blogs when I feel like it, but it is much better to never expect a reply. Then a reply is pleasant surprise if it happens. -- Muddy,

You don't suck. The same thing happens to me on certain blogs, so I eventually don't leave comments anymore because I feel kind of dumb. I am not always good at responding to comments, but I try! I know I am a flake sometimes. I'll do better and then maybe others will be motivated to do better. Courtesy is contagious, isn't it? Well, it should be! xxxooo

I use typepad and for some reason now I can't reply via email to comments but I generally comment on other's blogs AND reply in my own comment section for those who read often.

And, I, for one think you are GREAT! :)

(Randomly arrived here using the "next blog" button).

I think most people regard their blogs as fairly private and so may not feel obligated to reply to posts by 'strangers'.

On the other hand, if it is people you know quite well and feel they are failing to reciprocate ... well ... perhaps they are not so worthy then ...
