Tell Me Something Tuesday was hosted by Rainy Day Ramblings, but she has (temporarily?) stopped blogging. So a group of us that had been doing posts (Linda from Book Girl of Mur-y-Castell, Karen from For What It’s Worth, Roberta from Offbeat YA, Jen from That’s What I’m Talking About and me) decided to get together, come up with some more topics and keep the meme going.Michelle made us a logo and we’re off and running. For more details, check out this post where I reintroduced the meme.
I can be sporadic, but when I do join in I will always share next week’s topic at the end of the post. So, today is about…
When does it become too late to comment on a blog post?
Ok, this was my question and I’m SUPER curious to know what people think. The reason I ask is, I’m a HORRIBLE blog visitor. I don’t visit nearly as often as I like and a lot of times, by time I’m reading a post, it’s a month or so late. And I feel dumb commenting. Like, you’re going to get that comment notification and be like, “you just read this?”
And yet, if people visit me late, I don’t mind at all. But I don’t get comments generally more than like a week later… so I wonder, is that a good rule of thumb? Visit within the week? I know that for me, I use Feedly to visit blog posts for the most part. I save posts to read later and then as I’m reading through, I mark them as read. But sometimes I don’t have time to comment so I save them. And then on Sundays I clear the feed… even if I haven’t commented. I think I also feel like, if I see the number of posts that I need to go back and comment on climbing into the 20s, 30s, etc, I will feel overwhelmed. So I clear the slate.
