Before I proceed with today's post, I just want to mention that Matt Bomer Monday will now be on the 2nd and 4th Monday of the month. This will allow me to participate in Book Blogger Confessions, or any other Monday meme I feel like participating during the 1st and 3rd Monday of the month. And now, for today's post...
This is my first time participating in this meme! I don't know if I will be participating every time but I thought I'd start participating now. This meme was originated by bloggers from Tiger's All Consuming Media and For What It's Worth. This meme occurs every 1st and 3rd Monday of the month to allow bloggers to vent, share an opinion, or offer a solution to a common problem.
Today's topic is:
Blogger relations: Are there blogs you visit and comment on because you like their style, voice etc.(maybe you even converse with the blogger on Twitter & Facebook) but those comments are never reciprocated on your blog?. Do you get a bit offended or do you understand that they may be busy? Or do you comment just because you like a post not expecting anything in return?
I used to comment on someone's blog because I thought we were good blogger friends. The blogger would reply to my comments on her blog, but only stopped by once or twice on my blog. Eventually, we drifted apart and I stopped commenting. Now, I only visit if she has a post that is really interesting to me. With bloggers like these, I don't take it personally. I just drift apart from them and develop new relationships with bloggers that reciprocates the gesture.
For example, my FAVORITE blogger is Jen from Jen Ryland/YA Romantics. She replies to my comments on her blogs, and visits my blog when she has time. Even if the comment she leaves are short or just to give her affirmation on the topic I posted for that day, I appreciate it.
Another blogger I love is also named Jen from Some Like It Paranormal. She's super opinionated and leaves LONG comments, which I absolutely love. I truly enjoy having a conversation with her on my blog (and Twitter) and throwing opinions back and forth without fear of upsetting each other in any way. I don't visit her blog as often as I probably should, though. Maybe I should make a habit of it from now on.
