Answer Me This: Blog comments

So today I'm wondering how you read blog comment replies. I've set my profile so that after I leave a comment on your blog my email address shows up when you get a comment notification. (under "edit profile" checkmark "show my email address") Then you're able to just reply to me directly in your email instead of back in the blog comments section. I know I rarely remember/have time to go back to blog posts to check for more comments, unless it's something I really wanted to read more answers on. So if you comment on my blog I love being to reply to you personally directly in my email although if it's something I think other readers might want to know too then I'll post it on the blog comments too. If you're leary (sp?) of putting your email address out there, you could create a new email account just for blog things. Since you're my readers, I'm asking, how do you prefer to read replies to the comments you leave??

Sarah, This is what I started doing a while back, too! It's been nice, and I've been able to get to know some bloggy friends better ... like YOU!! ;)

Yup, Carrie, you're one of my few readers that does that, and I've so loved getting to email back and forth!

I didn't know I could do this. I'd much rather do the email thing since it goes right to my phone and I don't always get to the actual computer. Thx for the tip!

Gee... did I spark this? Well in my comments, I don't normally ask questions or expect a reply. But considering this is something I want to know, I'm going to select the box here in the reply box that says to email follow comments to me. I don't normally do that bcs I don't want a million emails.
But this issue may be a case of lack of experience or simply just not knowing.

Funny you should mention this - I always wondered how to handle it too! I guess if it's something I'm hoping to see a reply to I do end up going back to the post - that is, if I remember! I also always wondered if I should answer ppl's questions in my own comments or go to their blog to answer. Having the email option is certainly a good way to do things -- I'll have to look into that!
Thanks, Kathy =)

Mary, I'd never even noticed that "email follow up comments" option before! The only place I'd seen that type of thing was at MckMama's and obviously I wouldn't want a hundred emails coming in from there!

I like the email capabilities too that you have with blogger. I was getting ready to change mine over to be able to respond to comments via email, because sometime people don't come back to the blog to see if you've responded to them or not. so it makes it nice and if it's something you think other readers would want an answer to you could always respond in the comments section too!

I didn't know I could do this. I'd much rather have replies come to my email. I have changed mine. Thanks for the tip!
