I am curious about what others might think about leaving a comment at any given blog post.
Is there a point when you just do not bother..?? 5 comments..?? 10..?? ...a hundred comments..??
Do you ever read through them, two or a hundred, to see if anyone has made your point already..?? Or do you even bother to read past the first few comments..??
If someone has made your point already . . do you add your thought anyway..?? Do you reference that 'similar' comment you already found in your comment..??
Too many questions, I know. Perhaps too much thinking about it.
I will often read the first screen or two of comments, particularly at a post about a topic that really interests me. Or a comment thread that has value in and of itself. I find that I really enjoy the threads where readers play off each other, amplifying this thought or that thought.
But too often they just seem to be a bunch of disconnected thoughts, some over and over again. Others totally off-topic and often moronic.
But not that I will ever have to worry about such problems. I am perfectly content for my rare comment and the smile it brings to my face.
Anyway, just some random questions and thoughts about comments.
