The topic of blog-commenting (blommenting? clogging? blenting? bleating…no, that doesn’t sound right) seems to be a popular one and itself rouses a lot of reactions. I thought I’d paste here what some very eminent bloggers had to say to my post: (Notice my name-dropping)
I think that this is a great topic! I love to get comments and leave comments. At first I didn’t know if it was “okay” to leave a comment on the blog of someone I knew only thru reading their posts, but I took the leap and there’s been no turning back.

I was the same way when I first entered blogland. I didn’t want to comment for fear of appearing pushy etc. I felt like maybe it was an invasion of privacy (duh Hell-oo, it is a public diary!) Anyway, I leapt as well, how else does one make friends via computer? (or anywhere for that matter)

I agree with both Regina and Sara…I’ve been reading blogs much longer than Ive been leaving comments! However I still sometimes just visit and dont feel the “need” to comment at each and every one of the new entries. I find I only comment tho on those blogs where I get a feel for “having something in common” or those the totally inspire and amaze me..I probably comment on 1 blog a day average and I visit about 20 a day regularly.

I leave comments everywhere I go, even if it’s just a “great blog”. I love getting comments and I know everyone else does too!
I also love to visit everyone that leaves a comment on my blog. I feel very connected with the whole world now. Woo hoo HOO!
Great blog, btw! 😉
