I need some advice

I really appreciate when you leave comments. Actually, it's more than that, I love it. (If you love comments so much why don't you marry them. I would if I wasn't already married; well, I mean if comments was interested. You know.) Sorry, I have a bad habit of interupting people, even myself.
Back to the point. Comments. Often I want to comment back to your comments, but I think, well, they already commented, they don't love me so much that they are going to check back to my comments again, just in case there's more of me. So I don't comment on your comments, since you won't even know. However, I noticed some people do comment in their comments on other people's comments. How do I know? I check back, you know, cuz I'm obsessed with you all and stuff.
So my question is, do you think it would be better if I comment back on my own comment page thingy, or should I email you, or comment on one of your posts?
Tell me what to do.

I hope you don't mind my saying, the parking fairy didn't work for me. I guess it didn't help that I got mad when she didn't sprinkle her fairy dust and open up a stall. I was good though I didn't curse at the parking fairy but I did give her a piece of my mind. Mind you I usually have great luck parking too. Kala'i was with me and had no clue who I was talking to and asked a million questions about the parking fairy. Maybe he'll have better luck.

Now about your current post, I've often wondered the same thing on my own blog. However, I figure no one is interested enough to comment or resad so I just post when I have a few extra minutes or have a need to free a thought, or I'm up in the middle of the night and can't sleep. That being said I read your blog religiously and will definitely reread posts if I know you'll comment on them.

So I vote yes, to post a comment to a comment.

I have commented back before, to yours once, I think it was, and I wondered if you saw it or if I just should have said something in person. I usually just respond to the person in person or via email or something. I dunno.... you make a good thought question though...

I do both. If it is someone that doesn't read my blog often, then maybe I'd comment on theirs. I have a lot of people comment back on one of my posts. But if its someone I talk to daily, and a reply that I'd like others to know too, comment back on yours. I'm confusing myself.

Ooh ooh ooh, pick me! I think you should comment back, because when I come to the comment page, I read what everyone wrote, and if someone has commented back, I think it adds to the "thread," even though blogspot didn't set the sites up well for "threads," which is really what we all need.
I don't know. I really get it, though. I've just started blogdom, and I've been leaving comments to people's comments, and I do want to hear their responses, though I don't know if they look back, but I am also obsessed and check back. I've left some super-long comments on Sara's. And I loved your comment on Sara's about saying you might turn her in, not saying that you will, you just might or something like that, it was very witty and clever, I thought. I'm also waiting for Sara to tell us the blog she was browsing when she forgot her newborn (not that it's a good thing, just that I do want to see what was so fun; I check everyone's blogs religiously, too)

Gosh, tell us what you decide to do. Oh, and I wanted to reference your friend's blog about the BoM characters for a movie, I hope that's ok. Very funny.

When someone comments on my blog, I try to go back to there blog and comment on there's also. But it kind of makes it difficult, whatever is easier for you!

One of the most entertaining things about Gatsby's blog are the comment threads (then again, I think he has two pseudonyms that he uses so he can create his own threads at his good pleasure). Some blogs create great threads, and others not so much (see mine as an example).

However, I think you should just go with your gut. Whatever the situation calls for, that's what you should do.

Thanks Holdy.

I was going to say that you should reply to comments with comments in your same comments. If I leave a comment, I usually chack back after a day or so to see if they replied or deleted it.

I also think the comment threads are great to read. I love to read if there has been any correspondence between commenter and the commentee (you)!

I also love sharing my opinion. So, if you ever need one, I have plenty in my bank.

The Mediocre Gatsby said...

In fact even if you don't want it, she has plenty opinion to share.

Trust me!

Thanks for your help everyone, the verdict is in.
In case it's not obvious, THIS is the option I choose.
I figure if you're interested enough to see if I responed, you'll check, if not, oh well.
Gatsby, I do always enjoy your follow-up commentary.

ha ha I saw you left a comment on Seriously So Blessed. You people down in Springville are pretty hip.

I say to comment back on their blog. That's where I'd be more likely to look anyways.

Heck is for people that don't believe in gosh
