How does this work? Is it really very individualized? If someone comments on your blog are you obligated to reply? Do you reply via e-mail (if that is possible)? DO you reply as another comment? Do you reply as a blog post? Do you go to their blog and thank them as a comment on their blog (becasue the e-mail option is not redily available or becasue you are goignt o comment anyway?)
What does it mean when someone doesn't reply to your comment? Do you keep visiting a blog where the blogger does not reply to your comments?
Can someone fill me in on the rules? I am not assuming that "tit for tat" or a reply to every comment is necessary, but... (I also know that not everyone is able to check regularly and that a reply that is not timely is sometimes not made at all...)
Am I taking it too personally? Should I just do what I want and not worry about wether or not I get comments or replies to comments?
P.S. - thanks for all of the kind comments regarding my "sensitive" post.... (I need to remind myself that not everyone is me - so that do not do as I do & I should quit expecting them to.)
Thanks for letting me vent.... (again!)
