I’ve been thinking about writing this entry for a while, but I’ve sorta started it, then deleted it and stuff because I’m not sure if it is my place to say anything about it..
I love blogging, it’s been an important part of my self-development for over a year now, a place to release frustration, to let people get to know me a little bit, a place where I most of the time don’t feel like I have to lie about how I am doing and what I feel.
Early in January Ida wrote a great entry on quality of blogs, how it is important to be able to catch the attention of your readers and try to make your blog as interesting as possibly.. and how it is nice to try and reply to your blog comments, but don’t be generic about it.

It is somewhat of an eye-opener really!
for me, this entry is not going to be about how to make your blog better, because frankly I am pretty sure lots of people find my blog generic and boring, I know I don’t write many deep and meaningful posts, I don’t open up to my deepest feelings, if anything my blog is pretty average and I am suprised I’ve managed to capture this many followers, I must say some stuff that appeal to you all
but now over to what I wanted to talk about, it is something Ida mentioned, which is commenting..
I love commetning other people’s blogs, I love reading and putting my own thoughts to their ideas or feelings whenever they allow me. It also makes me happy when people are able to share their thoughts around whatever I’ve decided to post, but one thing I do not appreciate are comments strictly replying to my own comment to that persons blogentries. Sure it is ok to come back to my blog and give a reply if you want to..
But as a fellow blogger you could at least pretend to have read the entry your commenting?
I’ve had a few doing that on my blog, but I’ve seen it loads on others too..
if you’re going to take the time to reply to a comment, please have the decensy to actually read the entry you’ve decided to comment, it’s blog politeness. I know that’s a word I made up just now, but in my eyes it is only fair..
even if you find the blog boring and uninspiring, if you take the time to go to it and reply, it only takes you a few more minutes to read a little bit and make a quick comment.
Now I’m done with today’s rant, my room needs to be cleaned it’s a disaster area.
It is making me think less about my poor macbook who is with the appledoctor right now, poor lonely macbook going through surgery on it’s own.
