Slapdash Sunday (2 of 2)


Hosted by Kayla at The Eclectic Element
Slapdash Sunday is a day for your proverbial week 'leftovers.' Is there something you wanted to say, but just forgot? Is there something you want to write about, but isn't worth a whole page? Do you have a random thought, funny or otherwise that needs to be written down?
That is what Slapdash Sunday is for!
  My questions and thoughts are about commenting. 
How many comments do you post daily?   What determines what blog you post on?  Do you find yourself commenting on only the same ones all the time?   Do you have a system or even something like a spread sheet to be fair as to what blogs you visit to comment?  My blogroll is quite long...and with the Book Blogger Hop that Jennifer at Crazy For Books hosts every Friday, it is getting longer and longer.  But I can't help but adding more since there are so many great blogs in cyberspace.  I try to refresh my page many times during the day to read the postings in my Google Reader and if something catches my eye, I will visit and comment.  But I also feel that I may be missing out on some good blog postings.
What are your thoughts on this topic? Let's have a SlapdashPhotobucket !!!!!

I try to go through my Reader every day and comment on posts I like. I also try to visit blogs that leave me a comment to see if I can discover a new blog & will leave them a comment if I like what I see. Everyone just needs to work out their own system and do what they can.

p.s. Have I told you yet how much I like the new look of your blog? I do! I do!

Good question and one that has different answers depending on each person. For me, my first priority is to visit and leave comments at blogs that do the same on mine. If a person does this regularly, then I will add them to my "must read" category of Google Reader so I will be sure to check them out.

Then, as I have time (and that is the big thing not to spend so much time on computer to take away from our real lives), I will visit other blogs and comment on interesting posts.

I agree with the comment above by bermudaonion - work out your own system and do what you can. And, don't place pressure on yourself or anyone else. It's about enjoying blogs, right?

This is a great question because I always feel like there are SO many blogs and SO little time!

I'm one who will just take an hour out of my day and just visit random blogs to comment-Like Greg's remake says, bloggers love comment love :D

It's hard because I want to visit everyone, but most days that's impossible...

Happy Slapdashing :D

I make sure and read or at least skim over the blogs that I follow at least once a day. If the post catches my eye, then I leave a comment. I love comments myself, so I try to treat other bloggers the way I want to be treated!
