My New Year's Resolution

(As opposed to my goals, including the one that looks like a resolution.)

I am going to respond to every comment made on this blog. I know of a few bloggers who seem to reply to every comment made on their blog, and I like that. It makes me want to comment on their blogs more often (to give them more work, of course) and fosters an environment of friendly discussion. Since I enjoy getting comments, it's only fair that I give those comments the respect of a reply.

Feel free to test me on this--but be warned, I'm not above doing mass replies that say simply "Thanks for your comments." Though I suppose in those cases I ought to at least name commenters individually.

I was wondering about this and am glad you posted on it, and have so resolved.

Scot said...

I began blogging not knowing what blog expectations are and just kind of figured the norms of conversation would do.

Or maybe I just like to have the last word and testing New Year's resolutions :-)

Scot said...

That should be test, not testing.

Hmmm. If you're going to dignify *every* inane thing I ever post with an official comment or note of thanks, I may need to comment less so as not to draw attention to the frequency with which I say stupid things.

Whew! I had to spend a minute catching up to meet expectations!

I thought of doing that once. But then I remembered I don't get many comments and I do it pretty much anyway.

um, good luck with that :)

Marmoreal, Katria, Absent, Brozy, Th., Scot, Scot, Scot, and Scot: Thanks for the comments!

Wow, that was easy. Maybe I should start acknowledging people who talk to me in real life too.
