Comments???


I really enjoying blogging and have been doing a lot more lately.  I actually had a comment from an anonymous reader that complimented me on the growth of my blog, which I was surprised by, but thankful.  I read (or scan) hundreds of blogs each day and very rarely do I comment on them...Why is that???

Honestly I don't know. I mean I enjoy the blogs and they spark thought and ideas in me, but usually don't feel the need to comment.  I might not agree with the statements on all the blogs I read, but I respect the opinions and thoughts of others. I remember when I use to watch Saturday morning cartoons a commerical that always stuck in my head....Great minds think alike, no, great minds think for themselves.  People have to learn to think for themselves and come to their own conclusion or views on a topic. People need to be able to back up their views and learn how to respect people who do not have the same views. 

A lot of times I don't comment because I am at a loss for words.  I don't necessarily agree or disagree, but I am taking time to formulate my own thoughts or opinions on the subject matter.  Sometimes I have no opinion and sometimes I am left confused, but oh well.  Sometimes people get mad when you don't comment, get over it (not trying to be rude). 

I blog to vent, to express myself, to get things out.  I read blogs to get inspiration and to see how others view things. Comments are extra....

Hi Humbly Beautiful! Personally, I like commenting as much as possible on others blogs. My take is that blogging is conversation and a one-sided conversation is, well, not as good! I agree blogging is venting as well and even when I'm venting, I want some one to agree with me! Just my take. Happy New Year and your blog looks beautiful!

Good point! It is not that I am against commenting, but I just don't do it that much. I am feeling what you are saying. I am trying to make an effort to comment more, but I just don't like blogs whose only goal is to get comments.

They're kinda extra to me, too... I've found that when I do comment on other blogs, a lot of the time that author will come comment on a post of mine lol, so maybe some people just comment for the sake of getting others to comment their work.
Me, I just blog when the mood hits. I read other blogs when I have time. Other than that, I'm a silent reader too lol ♥
