Bookish Rants and Rambles is basically where I either rant or ramble about something dealing with books.
For awhile, I would never comment on blog posts. I was just that random lurker, reading the posts, and thinking things like "That was a great book!", "THEY GOT THAT BOOK!", or just "All of the yeses! I completely agree!". But instead of commenting, I would just on and read the next blog post.
So, why did I do that? Why would I never comment?
I would see these people commenting that the bloggers actually knew around the blogosphere. I, again, felt like just a random lurker. I thought that the bloggers would look at my comment funny, thinking, "Who in the world is this chick?".
I now know that this is completely ridiculous. Being a blogger myself, I love it when anyone comments on my posts, it makes me happy and it makes me feel like someone is actually reading my posts!
This doesn't mean I comment on everything. I only comment when I actually have something to say. But even though I'm willing to comment, I still will not comment on popular blogs. When a blog has thousands of followers, I just feel to miniscule to comment.
Anyway, what are your thoughts on commenting?
