Anyone enjoying the pun there? I’m not typically a pun kind of person, but this one in particular made me giggle a bit, I have to admit. Anyway, this post today is about, you guessed it, comments. More specifically, it’s about keeping up with replying to comments. I have to admit, I’ve never been much about the comments on this blog or with any blog. Sometimes I’ll drop something on someone else’s post, but for the most part I don’t really bother. And some of this has to do with personal anxiety about it which is why, ultimately, I end up leaving replying for a long time.
Every time I tell myself that I’m going to sit down, catch up on replying to comments, and not let it become a mess where I have massive amounts of comments to reply to, I fail. And I’m honestly amazed at those who manage to keep up with it. And I keep telling myself that I’m going to get to a point where I respond immediately to comments when they’re posted but there always seems to be something preventing that. Sometimes I’m at work, sometimes I’m doing chores, sometimes I’m in the middle of the book, and sometimes I’m just trying to keep up with ensuring that all my posts are scheduled.
And, don’t get me wrong, I love reading all of the comments my posts get so my lack of reply for a month plus doesn’t mean I didn’t read it or that I purposefully decided not to respond. Sometimes I plan to reply and just forget to do so. Or, I reply in my head because I was busy and forget to actually go back and send one. It’s a very crazy situation sometimes. And, I suppose I just wanted to say that I appreciate all of you and I love when you comment, even if I’m not always here responding. I’ll try to be better about it in the future and this post is really to let everyone know that replying more often is a goal of mine as this blog continues to grow. I hope that you’re all really getting something out of sticking around and reading my regular barrage of random thoughts about books. It truly warms my heart.
As always, I wish you all happy readings! I hope you’ve got a good book to curl up with soon.
