I am probably going to make enemies, but I would like your honest opinions on what is proper blogging etiquette when it comes to comments. So here goes...
If someone leaves you a comment:
1. do you visit their blog and leave a comment?
2. do you send them a personal e-mail in lieu of leaving a comment; why?
3. do you totally ignore the comment?
I have visited many, many blogs in the past 1+ years, left comments and have had all three of the above happen. After leaving a few comments (meaning weekly for months) and getting absolutely no response whatsoever, I do not leave a comment and sometimes never go back to that particular blog...obviously the blogger doesn't care one way or the other.
Here is my opinion; if someone takes the time to leave me a comment, I try to visit them and leave a comment. I don't send a personal e-mail in lieu of a comment. If you are typing out an e-mail, why not just leave a short comment. We all like to receive comments. I never intentionally ignore anyone that has left me a comment.
Now that I have brought my questions out in the open...WHAT IS THE PROPER ETIQUETTE on this subject? I value all opinions, so don't be afraid to express yours on this subject.
