I recently noticed that some blogs I have been reading had "closed comments" on some days. I can understand that there might be days that you don't want your email box to be full, but I always find messages, especially blog comments, are like little reassurances that someone is checking in on you and really cares.
Not too long ago I read that one blogger felt that those of us who comment are often "stalking" her blog and others.That was quite disturbing, since I never would have even met the lovely blogging friends I have if I hadn't looked around at blogs and made comments.
As many bloggers do, I started my blog for me. If someone else out in the World Wide Web is interested in my drivel, good on you! And if you feel like commenting, I may comment back. Or I may just enjoy the remark and click to something else on my iPad.
