So, huh, comments

While washing my hair, I thought, "Wow, I haven't had many comments lately" and part of me thought, "Well, you never have had tons" and another part of me thought "Well, people don't read blogs like they once did" but based on my stats, I have about as many pageviews as ever.

And I thought about it more, and contemplated: what if I de-moderate comments? Might people who don't like the moderation process be more prone to comment, or would I be deluged with spam I'd have to delete.

And then I thought: well, doesn't Blogger notify me via e-mail when a comment comes in?

Apparently, not always. I looked in the "awaiting moderation" queue on here, and found.....several real comments that I was never notified of. Sorry about that! They are up now, if you commented and wondered where it went. (There were also a couple bits of spam). I guess I have to start checking the "awaiting moderation" and "spam" bins on Blogger now.

So if you do comment, and it doesn't show up right away, that's what's going on.

I comment occasionally - I usually check your blog once or twice a week. I wonder if I should comment on THIS post?

I'm not sure why but I don't read blogs daily like I used to then once in a while I will spend a couple of hours reading a few of my favorites, trying to "catch up" with those. But yeah, when I do I should comment more because I crave comments myself. I think that's part of the reason I have mostly lost interest in blogging. I get more feedback, more "conversation," on Twitter so it's more fun.
