Yes, I felt a little funny after such a long time of thoroughly enjoying each and every single blog post, to finally head to that elusive comment section at the end of the post, leaving some wise words (well, sorta), introducing myself and apologizing for reading but never, up til then, commenting.
The end of the story? Blogger happy, me happy, and would you believe it, I inspired a blog post too.
What it all boils down to is the simple fact that I am apparently not the only one who ever got stung by the lazy-commenter-bug. I see that some of you nod in agreement. On one hand we do find time to read blog posts, on the other hand we often don't have another spare minute (or ten) to leave a funny or thoughtful or astonished or [fill in an adjective of choice] comment.
Now how about trying to change this? Baby steps for starters. I have decided to leave at least ten comments on various blogs every day. That might not be a lot in the grand scheme of things, especially seeing how I am following roughly 150 different sites, but it gets those commenting-wheels turning. So, let's call it a bloggish resolution for the new year. Oh, in case you want to join me on my mission of leaving ten comments per day, you can get a head-start if you comment here and now*.
Are you a bit like me - reading posts, but rarely commenting? How many comments do you on average leave on blogs every day? How do you like my plan to comment more this year? Comment away!
*I'm sneaky, aren't I?
