Comments, the things I struggle with most on.
First off let me just say that I love getting comments from all of you. When that little notification thing in the top righthand corner says I have a new comment to read it always makes me smile. It always makes me think and feel that I’ve written something that isn’t completely terrible.
But I’m very bad at replying to them and its not because I don’t want to. I do. Most of the time I just have no idea whatsoever of how to reply to a comment. I don’t want to just say, something like “haha yeah” or “yeah good point” or the ever annoying “OK”.
You’ve taken the time to leave me a comment, I want to give you a proper reply. So I sit there reading your comment over and over trying to think of something better than “yeah good point” to say. Time keeps on ticking by as I stare at the screen desperately trying to come up with something, the next thing I know hours have flown by and it feels like its too late to reply. The window of opportunity has closed.
So what do all of you feel makes a good comment and, perhaps more importantly in this case here, a good reply to a comment?
Is a short reply like “haha yeah good point” OK? Do you like mind it? Or do you find it quite annoying? Is it off putting?
Or do you think I’m just overthinking this whole situation? Because that is the other horrible thing with this. I’m left here wondering, am I the only one that thinks about this stuff? Am I the only one who stresses over this? Surely other people out there have similar issues?
Of course I don’t want stock comments either. That would be boring and very impersonal.
I get the feeling I’m beginning to go round in circles now with my thoughts.
Please let me know any tips or advice you for comments and how to reply to comments and please please don’t stop leaving comments in general. I will do my best to get back to them all.
