So I'm fairly new to the blogosphere, and I've had a nagging question on my mind the past couple of weeks. I can't seem to get an answer so what better way than to ask an open question here?
What is proper blogging etiquette when it comes to receiving comments on one's blog? Do you:
a) Enjoy the comments quietly and privately, letting them accumulate without response
b) Make a point of responding to and acknowledging every comment by leaving a comment
c) Leave a comment in response to one only when a question has been asked
d) Reply to comments privately via email when a blogger has provided one, otherwise don't respond
e) Obsessively stew over proper blogging etiquette and worry that if you don't followed "accepted practice" that you'll offend people
I've done all of the above at any given time and don't know which is correct.
Mind you, I won't know how to respond to your comments, so I've created quite a paradox for myself now haven't I?
And I sincerely apologize if I haven't been following proper blogging etiquette and have somehow inadvertently breached blogging protocol by not responding to comments and thereby hurting someone's feelings along the way.
Being proper is so darned difficult!
