Confession Time

I am going to make a confession that some will find horrible. Please forgive me.

I've been holding on to this for a while. Because I am an honest person, and because I hate to see anyone wasting valuable time, I have to confess:

I do not go back to comments I've left on people's blogs to see if they have commented on my comments.

That said, if I read a post that I really enjoy, I will subscribe to its follow-up comments so that I can read the continued dialogue (and the blogger's replies). I enjoy reading bloggers' replies to other comments; I find it entertaining. I've recently begun recieving replies to my comments via email from people who use Wordpress, and I love that! (When is Blogger going to do that?!) I just don't go back to monitor replies to my comments. I feel a little guilty about that, so that's why I'm confessing.

I know it's good bloggy form to reply to your reader's comments, and I truly enjoy doing so on my blog, but I do so without any expectation that you come back and keep up with them. It just doesn't seem logical to me; it's hard enough to keep up with your Reader without returning to the posts to see if the author has added a comment for you. I figure if you're especially inspired to communicate with me, you'll do it via email or add it to a comment on a new post (which is what I sometimes do.) I love getting notes like that, and I enjoy sending personal email comments, too.

There. Now I feel better. Am I evil? Am I alone in this?

And now it's your turn; any confessions you'd like to share?
