I’ve recently (as in, the last two-ish months) started to keep track of when I’m actually commenting on other people’s blog posts – mainly because I wanted to see how much time I spent doing that, right? Well… turns out I don’t do it nearly enough. As in, I’ve done it on less than five days in the past two months. Honestly. This is just ridiculous and I think super unfair to everyone who actually takes the time to read my posts, like them and leave me a comment.
And I still can’t quite put my finger on why. I actually talked a bit more about this last year because I felt like I was in a commenting slump – if that’s even a thing. But seeing how it’s been months and months since and things haven’t really changed much I wonder what’s going wrong here.
On my own blog, I do my best to reply to comments in a timely manner and usually, I get at least that done. But I also follow so many fantastic people who write great posts that I want to show my appreciation for by leaving a like and comment. But I feel stuck? Or like there is a blockade or something going on that I can’t seem to work around – or through, for that matter.
Which bothers me. Honestly. It’s not like I don’t want to comment and be interactive with the people I follow but there’s just something in the way.
So, what does a blogger do if they can’t work through a situation? Well, they ask other bloggers for help. It’s a community and I’ve gotten such great feedback from you guys before so hopefully, this is going to be such a situation.
Not that I want to put pressure on you guys to solve this problem for me. I’m just curious to hear how you guys go about commenting and how often you do it. If you sometimes get into these periods of time where you just simply don’t want to comment – no matter if you have time to do it. Because obviously sometimes you just don’t have the time to be as active in the community as you might want to.
