When you read a blog, do you skim through the blog entry? Just look at photos? Or do you read every little thing they wrote?
I’m a little bit of all. Most times I’ll take the time and read what the blogger has posted. However, some days I don’t read everything that bloggers write about, and I like to view some interesting photos they have added into them and ignore the text altogether.
I’ll admit, it’s a bit of readers ADHD, isn’t it?
If I find myself regularly viewing the bloggers photos for weeks on end, it’s time that I tell myself to just delete that blog from my RSS feed and be done with it.
I read all my blogs through the Google RSS feed. A few websites are blocked when I visit them, therefore I almost always forget that I read them and wait until I get to a computer where they’re not blocked, so I can comment. If I really want to comment on an entry, I copy the URL of their post and write myself an e-mail so when I have access to another computer I can go in and post that comment on their site (so dedicated). I now know which ones are blocked and I don’t read those until later.
Do you always comment? Or are you not a commenter at all. Why or why not?
I’ll rarely comment on your blog if I have to login or enter a random jumble of characters to submit my comment. That’s a step further than I wanted to take, and readers like myself are lazy when it comes to commenting. On some blogs, I write a story book. On other blogs that are very popular with comments, I rarely comment — It’s mainly because the other commenter usually say the same things that I was about to comment on, and I never know if the blogger/author will get to read my comment entry because there are SO many comments on each and every entry they write. I guess I’m intimidated a bit :) I often try to comment on blogs that are just starting out too — only if I love the blog enough to read them daily. I love receiving comments, and often I like being asked questions at the end of posts, which leaves me room to comment on a bunch of random things that this person chatted a bout in their entry.
What kind of blog reader are you?
