I read this somewhere & all I can say is wow.

"Only about 1-2% of the readers of any given post will comment. In other words, 98-99% of readers simply don't leave comments."

& I am going to do my best to be part of the 1-2%...

I bet it's even less than that. I read through google reader and rarely comment, but I'm reading! I do try to comment, especially on projects - I know the work that goes into them and like to acknowledge, but other than that I'm fairly quiet.

It's a rather stunning statistic. I am going to try to leave more comments on blogs I read in the coming year.

I plan to comment on more blogs too, I love to get comments, and it helps me know what people like reading about and what they want to see!

Well I have over 700 readers a day and average comments are around 20, and on a high day maybe 50 comments so I would say less than 1% is more accurate.

Wow, I guess I'll start commenting more.

I enjoy reading a lot of blogs but I only comment on a few.

Guess that makes me a lurker!

Pat said...

The statistic doesn't surprise me at all. Many times there are no comments or very few....BUT....if you want to see how many are reading, just have a giveaway..UNANNOUNCED...and you will have lots of comments! LOL

I spend alot more time reading than commenting. I'm in the 98%--unless they comment on my blog regularly--then I comment more often on theirs. :)

I try to comment as much as I can but if my words aren't flowing - it's just not going to happen. I can't help it. Unless I just typed "I was here" which seems kinda cheesy!

No comment.

Yes, I like to leave a comment, too. However, that said, I will stop commenting on a blog that I never get a reply from. I reply to all my commenters...I just think it's the right thing to do! Do you?

AnnieO said...

I like to leave comments and usually do on the blogs I read regularly, but admit there are times when I just blog hop and read new blogs without commenting. But I will bookmark ones that grab me and go back and comment later after I "get to know" the blog. Funny!

julieQ said...

I think that is probably very right...I go through and see what everyone is doing, and comment when I have time...I need to be better at that!

I have to ask - your quote "all I can say is wow" - is it from a children's book? I seem to remember the same quote from a book we used to read to our daughters. Happy New Year!
