Do you reply/respond to your readers?

I mean, do you really? Are you an active reader? Seriously, in this whole blog community on blogspot I find new blogs everyday that I want to follow b/c they're interesting for the most part. What I don't like is when I leave a comment asking questions and the people never give me a reply??? I understand that folks are busy but dang...I'm interested and the best way to keep me and others is to be an active author!

Anywho, thanks to all blogger that answer my questions, no matter how silly...thanks for taking the time out to help me!!

Yes, I make sure to answer my readers questions. That's why I even allow them to contact me via email. (not my personal email though, lol). You do have to respond to their questions especially if it pertains to the subject of your blog. I don't post a lot on others blogs. Only if I know and have seen the author comment back.

I try to answer as often as I can if a question is asked. Sometimes I forget and the comment is lost in the blog and I can't find it.

I try to answer as soon as I can because I would want the same. Plus I appreciate the fact that the person took the time to even read my blog, so it is important to answer their questions.

I always answer/respond to posts. If someone took the time to ask a question or post an opinion, it's important to them, which makes it important to me.

Charmaine said...

@blessed...i feel the same way!

@be-you...ditto! i think like that too!

Big Cheekz said...

i had to give my blog a break for a minute, but with the lil bit of folk i did have commenting when i was writing, i always thanked them by commenting back if i needed to :)

like your site! i like coming across new beauty blogs geared towards women of color.

DeJa Vu said...

I do understand what you mean. And I take it upon myself to answer every comment.

Charmaine said...

@big cheekz...that's what i was thinking, i'm trying to keep people coming back so that's the least I can do. Thanks for the compliment!!

@deja vu....comments mean so much to me too! when i see a comment that means that someone found soemthing interesting about what I wrote, feels good to know that!

I am all bright red with guilt here, and although you aren't talking to me, I know I've been slacking off when it comes to replying to comments on my blogs. I've been restricted to just blogging, reading, commenting, and replying late at night when I get home from work. I use to be on top of things all day, but now I just don’t have the time. I feel you though, because there was once upon a time when I felt the same way.

Charmaine said...

@wordhuslez....LOL, we all have those moments..I try to check during the day cause I'm so busy at night with homework, kids, and their homework..the baby and hubby!

Brothers Blog said...

Yep I always make it a point to respond to any comment. I figured if they took the time to read what I wrote and leave a comment I can at least reply to them. Especially if it's answering a question.

Charmaine said...

@brothers...yep, that's the least you could do...that was a funny post about the dogs.hahaha

beautychemist said...

I just started my blog so I am looking forward to the day when I have readers to respond to! I want to have a dialogue with my "future" readers so I definitely plan to reply.

Charmaine said...

@beautychemist...that's a great way to think about it! I make a response to everyone b/c I appreciate everyone who stops by! Good luck with your blog...I'll definitely check it out!

Product Junkie Diva said...

yes respond to all of the posts where people respond. I may not get to do it in the same day the person leaves the comment but I always get to it in a timely fashion.
