Something I've been thinking about a bit lately is the business of replying to comments. When I comment on a blog, I rarely go back to check for a response, but sometimes the blog author will send me an email response, which is nice. My comments on other blogs are not as frequent as I would like them to be (but who has that kind of time?). When I do leave them, they are usually meant as a bit of praise, or agreement, or encouragement. I never expect a response. Sometimes they don't actually merit one.
Still, I feel badly about the fact that I rarely respond to comments here, because I appreciate them. I've spent some time thinking about an efficient way to do this. I've decided that from now on, I will do what Tommy does and I will reply to comments below the next post, starting with my next post.
