do you come back to see my reply??? // winter is here

IDK about you, but I love commenting on blogs. Like I'll read a post and be laughing the whole while and keep this mile long list of things I want to say.

then I hit that blank box and start going;

"OHMYWORD THIS IS SO PERFECT okay like i know exactly what you mean. I do that too. HOW DO YOU KNOW???

btw. that photo? adorbs"

*nods* that's about the gist of a majority of my comments lol!!! But -- my question for you today is; do you go back to the post to see the reply?  I mean, half of the fun of commenting on blogs, is getting to keep a conversation going with the blogger. And - for the blogger - A COMMENT MAKES THEM SO STINKING EXCITED *is totally not speaking from experience* 


I've just been wondering though, am I the only one? Does anyone else click that little box, sending them the email notification for EACH AND EVERY COMMENT FOREVER MORE - or do you just go "oh, I'll remember to check that" and then forget *also is totally not speaking from experience* 

Cuz, guys, just letting you know, I value your comments and reply. *nods* yup I totally do. also;

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR EACH EVERY COMMENT YOU'VE EVER LEFT ON MY BLOG *throws ice cream cones around for everyone* 

we just got dumped with snow. I was excited....but ha. not anymore. :|

p.s I'm doing really well with the book challenge...IM TRYING TO MEET THE DEADLINE but geesh you guys helped me out so much with those book suggestions 

do you check to see if I replied??
excited about the snow?

    2. Well when they do another post, I'll often read it and then go back to the last one and see if they replied to my comment, if I did comment on it.

  2. Comments are awesome and I may or may not squeal and flail and generally act stupid whenever I see a new one on my blog. 😂 And yessss that's so me, scrolling through a bunch of blogs to see the reply to my comment! Haha!

      I either forget, or click the notify me box. They really should just have it set up where you only get notified for the reply to YOUR comment :P oh well
      I did!! YOU GUYS WERE SOOO HELPFUL. I'm going to publish a post all about it, in January :)

  4. Oh, I always try to go back to read the reply, because I'm interested in what they have to say! Of course I have to remember that I commented in the first place + there's life and time limits so that doesn't always work out. :P But I try to! Bloggers are the best. <3

    That top photo is just so lovely. <3 Seriously, you're so beautiful. And the photo captures the snow so well!

    1. well...uhm. eh, you want to see it now? We've got a good foot of snow out there. I have to go plow *moans*

      OH, see! That's another true fact. If someone doesn't reply to my comments, I don't feel like commenting again in the future... I never really thought of that. Aww... you're the best <3

    1. I once went searching for like an hour for this one certain blog I really liked BUT DIDNT FOLLOW and couldn't remember the name - like at allllllll. I still don't think I found it o.o
      awww <33 how cold?? It's going to be like -3 tomorrow o.O *dies*

    2. I hate when that happens XP
      Well, currently in the 30s, but it's been all over lately :/

  10. I TOTALLY check back :D! (I also connect with your commenting thought flow... I'm like, "I WILL SAY THIS AND THIS AND THIS AND.... gah, comments can't be as long as the post without a very good reason! Condense that before you post it. No, more. Just the basics. THEY WILL NEVER WANT TO ANSWER THIS, STAWP. Why even did you tell that story, it's only very loosely related through this other barely more related thing?! Stop Bri. Thank you", haha!)
    I used to click the email me button, but it sends you ALLLLLLL the comments, not just replies, so my email was flooded and I stopped. I like reading the comments and getting to know not only the blogger but the commenters (and the extra explanation that the blogger often gives to individual commenters, mwahahahaa!), just not in my inbox ;). So I just come back to read them later -I think I do a pretty good job of it. But there are very few blogs I comment on, so that might change, haha :). I always feel a little guilty when I reply back to a reply though, like I'm over loading the blogger... but sometimes I can't stop myself!

    1. HAHA!! yeah, I totally know that you do. ;) You're one of my most frequent commenter though! Which, is pretty awesome. ;)

      I KNOW I DONT LIKE THAT EITHER. Blogger really should fix that, instead of changing what we DO like. :| oh well

    2. Haha, oh, you noticed ;)? Am I really?! *self conscientiously groans and grins in delight at the same time, because I'm not sure how I feel about that*

  12. Whenever I hit the notification button the blogger never ends up replying to me, instead they get like thirty other comments and I get an email for every single one. :O *growls* Lol and then when they do reply I didn't subscribe to comments because i'm like I'LL REMEMBER TO COME BACK.

  14. OH MY GOODNESS YESSSS I CHECK BACK TO SEE!!!! Generally I don't do the little box for gmail cuz I just...don't get on gmail very much, BUT I TRY TO REMEMBER EVERY COMMENT AND CHECK BACK. i like always check back on your blog. And basically I check back daily on most of the blogs I comment on until the person comments back... lol BUT SERIOUSLY CONNECTING WITH other peeps on the internet is the best thing about the blogosphere. Having a convo with a blogger over a comment is fun!! Take you and me for instance...we met through our blogs....through the internet - and might not have otherwise!!! CONNECTING WITH PEOPLE IS GREAT RIGHT?!

    EEP!! The challenge!!!! Hows it going?? What books did you get?! PLEASE TELL ME!!! (p.s. i am very happy bc i finished w&p Saturday night. Like...yes. thank you. Its overrrrr. FOREVER.) KEEP GOING JULIAAAAA

      *laughs* 'course I'm right (jk) YUS THAT'S HOW WE MET (so now I'm just repeating you #ohwell?)

      *revives you* HOW MANY DO YOU HAVE NOW?! *nodsnods* I just set a goal for W&P and forced myself to read and actually got into a semi-good rhythm and just SURVIVED THROUGH IT. It was terrible, but I didn't die. XD XD)

  22. I WISH I REMEMBERED TO CHECK BACK. But I don't often. And I don't click the email button often, unless I ask a question I am super interested in knowing the answer to. Basically I am just a bad comment-er in general SIGH. :P And then I want to include allll the things from that post I loved, but by the time I reach the comment section... they disappear? I have the memory of a fish (do fish have good memories...? hope not, otherwise my analogy wouldn't work), so it's a hopeless cause. I'M DETERMINED TO EVENTUALLY GET BETTER AT IT, THOUGH.
