I follow a lot of blogs, like many bloggers do, both here on WordPress and on Blogger. On WordPress, I receive some updates via email and other blogs I read via the WordPress Reader. I have a tonnage of emails. At present, well over 700 to read, all of them from blogs.
I like to be engaged with the blogs I follow. Generally, I try to tweet, comment, like and reblog often. I do it to share others work. It is time-consuming, and yet I enjoy it.
I feel guilty if I just “like” a blog post and run. I do it sometimes though. I do try to comment on at least one or two blog posts from those I follow a week and leave comments when I am inspired to write something. I don’t just want to leave a random blah-blah, meaningless comment.
All of this does mean that I am generally days and days behind on people’s blogs. So if you see a stranger stopping by long after you’ve forgotten about a post you’ve written… well, that would be me.
What are your thoughts about “likes” versus “comments”, do you do one or the other or both? Let me know below!
