And it's something that I have noticed too.
A few of us ended up having an interesting Twitter convo about the nature of blog comments (Well, as much as a convo you can actually have in 140 characters.)
I love comments. They are crack to this addicted blogger.
If you are a regular commenter of mine (and you know who you are....) I thank you, very much.
So tell me......what makes YOU comment?
What makes your fingers fly and itch to leave a witty response?
Do you love comments on your own blog? Do you see them as validations?
Do you get less comments that you used to from "old regulars"?
Do you worry about the volume of comments you do or don't get?
Do blog comments build a community? Or a clique?
Is Twitter a comment distraction? Replacement, perhaps?
Do you feel an affinity to other "regular" commenters?
Are there blogs you ALWAYS comment on, regardless?
Do you ever suffer from blog comment apathy? The can't be bothereds?
What turns you OFF - what kind of post DON'T you comment on, and why?
Do you have a favourite commenter?
Do you reply within comments or via email, back to a commenter?
Do you have a preference on commenting systems? (Plain standard Blogger? Discus? I actually am one of the few that uses Echo - do you love it or hate it?)
What kind of posts inspires you to comment?
Tell me? Share? Let me know your thoughts?
