A recent post on Aunt Amelia's Attic got me thinking and wondering about comments.
I always like to read the comments that readers may leave and I often--but by no means always--like to leave a comment on the blogs that I read on a regular basis.
But I'm thinking I don't really know the standard protocol.
I see that some respond to individual comments on the same comment page. That means, if you assume a conversation is taking place through comments, that you would have to check back for new comments. That's extra time and effort I don't always make.
Some bloggers send an e-mail as follow-up to a comment I have made on their blog. It's nice to get e-mail that isn't selling me something.
Sometimes it seems a response is called for--some kind of acknowledgement--but is it always expected? Is there and Emily Post for bloggers?
