Are You a Comment Junkie?

I admit it. I check my blog several times a day for comments. I don't receive them via email because for some odd reason, I love to see the numbers go up on the comment section of the blog itself.

In fact, I think I'm more than a comment junkie - I am just a letter junkie period. I love getting emails. I love getting letters in the mail. When I was young, I used to stalk the mailbox every day because I couldn't wait to get the mail. One time, my mom, who had watched my disappointment and frustration when I didn't get any mail, sent me a note that said, "I hope this mail cheers you!" What a great mom!

And I guess I've carried that obsession over to my blog comments. I just love to hear from people!

What about you? Are you a "comment junkie"?

  1. Hey, don't I send you enough stuff on FaceBook? Looks like I need to re-double my efforts.

    I think I must be. I have them on email AND I keep checking in too - I love to actually SEE them.

    You have Facebook? Next time I can log on (can't at work) I'll do a search for you. :o)

  10. That's a nice way of looking at it, Comments as little letters dropped off during the day! I enjoy the dialogue that the comments often spark, too.

It's like our own little science experiment! LOL! And yes, i should've realized early on I was a writer, since I too am addicted to the comments people leave! LOL! Jenni

  17. Totally a comment junkie. Like others here, I find it's not good enough to get them by email...I have to go to the post and savor them there!

  19. OMG, I SO do the same thing! I'm obsessed with blog comments. I think I get some type of twisted validation from the fact that others have not only read what I wrote, but related to it enough to comment on it.

    I'm not so good at commenting on other blogs sometimes, though I read quite a few of them everyday. I'm working on that, but there are only so many hours in the day and so, so many blogs :-P
