Do you think when one person visits another's blog, the former "owes" a comment to the latter?
If you visit a blog do you usually comment?
Are there blogs that you rarely or never comment on, but you read often?
Do you expect people to comment at your blog most of the time?

A couple blogs I read often .... or used to .... recently posted about this, and both were rather scathing toward people who "follow" but don't comment often. One stated the blog was not a newspaper. I quit following both. I don't comment as much as I used to because since I'm working, I have less time. If that makes me less valuable as a blogfriend, so be it.
Here's my point of view: I love getting comments. I love, love, love it! But I won't lash out at you if you're not a frequent commenter. Let's face it, it's a lot more fun when there are comments, because it is more like a conversation; but I understand that I, too, sometimes enjoy the read, but don't have anything to add. There are days when I have 50, 60, even 70 visitors per my counter, but I might get just a couple comments. That's OK. Perhaps I should pat myself on the back for having written such an amazing post that there is little to add to it!! LOL!
My understanding of a blog or "web log" is a venue in which to express oneself, an online journal. Having y'all add to my thoughts is awesome, but it's not my purpose, necessarily, to entertain you. If I have, yippee skippee. If not .... oh well.
Anyway, I'm just curious how others feels about this. Let me know, well, if you have an opinion, of course!! [grin]
