That is how many comments (as of when I last checked) the Pioneer Woman got the other day when she was giving away a Kitchen Aide Mixer. I have a Kitchen Aide stand mixer that is not as new & shiny, but it does the job well. & I am so happy that my husband let me get it when we were getting wedding/new house hold stuff. I wish I used it more, but I don't have the counter space to leave it out & it is heavy/sturdy! & the cabinet that it is in is not easy to get into. I even have 2 sets of verything for it so that I can make dairy and non-dairy confections - one set can take butter & milk the other can not.
This post is about comments, because Kitchen Aide has not plied my with a mixer to give away, sorry. For the few of you who read me, you would have had great odds in winning that one.
Do you reply to every comment? I think that I reply to a rather large proportion (not hard when you never get more than 10 comments a day) but I know that for one reason or another, I do not get to all of them every day. I do appreciate them all. Because while I yammer on for the yammering on of it, I do like to know that you are reading... (I can not promise that I will ever learn to type, so I am sorry about the typos - in my head what I type is perfect, so I am not the best proofreader - just ask my boss. He is a very good proofreader.)
Do you read the comments that other people leave? My husband claims that the comments are the best parts. I can probably count on 2 hands the number of times that I have read comments left by other people on someone elses blog. I can definately count on 1 hand the number of times that I have gone back to see if a reply to me is in the comments. My brain just does not work that way. Also when I reply to a comment or when my comment is replied to, it often segues into a new conversation, so I am not 100% sure that commenting in comments works for that...
Also there are quite a few blogs that I read but do not comment on. (Some of those are the ones where I "assume" that the author will not reply - based on volume or past experience.) Does anyone else lurk on some & comment on others? Do you have a rationale? I am totally curious about this side of blogging.
Our friend Blogger seems to have hiccoughed (I have no idea how to spell that, but you know what I mean.) & some people who previously showed their e-mail address with their comments now have them shut off. I too fell victim to this ailment. Libby let me know & I fixed it for myself. Not that I can quite explain how to do it so that you can do a self exam & fix yourself.
Happy Blogtober 7th!
