Join me as I ask a Fun Question that’s been on my mind. I’ll give you my take, but I really hope you’ll jump in with your answers too, since I’m really curious to know what my fellow readers and bloggers think! So today’s question is…
Is it too late to comment?
This question occurred to me this morning as I was working through a few posts on my feedly account. As most of you are very aware, I’m not too impressive as a blogger these days. I don’t post regularly and I’m bad at commenting on other blogs – nevermind replying to comments on my blog (I read them all though!!). BUT I have recently worked out a system that is helping me not suck quite so bad. I’ve been using it for about a month now and I hope it sticks.
I subscribe to a lot of blogs via feedly. If I notice someone visiting my blog frequently that isn’t on my feedly list, I add them. Because I like to visit back as much as possible. The reality though is that results in too many posts for me to possibly read. So each morning (or most mornings) I log in feedly and scroll through the new posts. If I want to read the post, I add it to my saved for later file. This could be because it’s an author I like, a title or cover that caught my interest. Sometimes the post title catches me, maybe I’m just aware that I haven’t visited that blogger in a while. Point is I save it for later, I don’t read it then.
Next I go to the saved folder and look for my oldest posts. This is where my question comes in… At what point has it been too long and I should just move on? I’ve been working with a week – 7 days in my head for some reason. I mean, at some point I have to move on or I’ll just get further and further behind. Some weeks I do better than others. This morning I had a few that were 9 days old and I REALLY was interested in them, so I read and commented or tweeted anyway. But generally, the posts that are more than 7 days old I just remove from the save folder and move on.
So at what point do you say, I just have to move forward? And as the recipient of my comments on say day 9, does it bug you? I know it doesn’t bug me to get comments late – though too late and I tend to expect it to be a spammer.
Obviously this post is more for those that aren’t amazing at keeping up. But for those that never fall behind, feel free to tell me how in the world you do that too lol!!!
