Let's talk blogs

Ive been thinking about 'blog etiquette' lately and wanted to hear what others thought too. Who am I kidding? I'm nosey and bored at work.

How many blogs do you follow?
81!! Why do I not have enough to keep me occupied? I was very surprised it was that many.

If someone follows you do you automatically follow them too?
No and I do feel guilty about this.

Do you comment on every one's blog or just those who comment to you?
I love comments, it lets me know that people are really out there. I try to comment on most blogs but I do make it a point to comment to people that I know do the same back. Plus you get to know the person better when there is mass commenting.

What types of blogs do you follow?
I follow a lot of craft/decor/frugal blogs along with any interesting regular blogs that I come across. Its about half and half.

What is your favorite part of blogging?
Meeting new people and taking a look inside their lives. I'm not the most open person (working on that!) but I do find other's lives very interesting. Oh and I love decorating my page with the cool backgrounds, which I will be changing tonight!

OK that's all I can think of for now. Have a great St Patrick's Day!

Hi! I liked your answers - they would be the exact same as mine. Except for the number that I follow. I am not even sure how many right now. I love commenting and reading the comments that people leave me - it's so much fun! It's so fun to meet people and get to know them better, don't you think?

Have a lucky day!

Stopping by from BSU to say hello. Enjoyed the post. Sometimes I wish I could find a book on blog etiquette. I'm never sure if I'm doing the right thing...

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

My answers would be similar as well. I follow several blogs, but I generally only comment if something really catches my attention or if I think I have something unique to say about a post, though.

I agree on the fact that comments let us know that there's someone out there. I'm thinking about changing my template for that reason. I haven't gotten any comments since I went to this template, probably because the link to post comments isn't visible enough.

GREAT post! I always wonder what is the norm....
1. 82! WOW! I can't believe its that many....
2. Most of the time I do... Unless the blog is really not my thing...
3. I comment when I have something to say. There are a few blogs whom I comment almost all the time... :) They must be special! ;)
4. I follow mostly mom blogs. I like to see that other people may be as crazy as me!
5. I don't know what my favorite thing is... I guess meeting peeps from all over!

I'm leaving you a comment just so you know I'm out here, lurking. ; ) j/k I only comment when I actually have some input. I don't like comments where it's painfully obvious that the person is just trying to lure new readers to their blog.
