OK, thanks to my friend Robin Miller, who is on a grand adventure in Europe and blogging, I learned the following that she posted today about our blogs. So thanks, Robin! I am just going to cut and paste what she said!
“I have been meaning to do this for some time. I absolutely LOVE getting comments on my blog posts.
When I first started out, though, I would reply to them thinking you would get an email. I get an email anytime anyone comments so assumed you would get the reply. NOT!
So, I typically don’t reply because to see it you would have to go back into that post and look at comments which I don’t think many people would do.
So, there you go…keep commenting and I will keep enjoying them!”
Except here is where I differ from Robin. I frequently answer your comment and I just assumed you got a notification that I answered back. I think WordPress should fix that!!
