More and more I appreciate comments that followers and readers leave after my posts. Comments can do many things. Comments can compliment, affirm, amuse, enlighten and sometimes disappoint.
Comments that some people make will add to what I've written. I don't always say all that could be said because I am unaware or too impatient.
It's always pleasant when someone agrees with you. However, I am not upset when someone disagrees. I appreciate a good debate and I will never make personal slurs and can usually ignore personal attacks and stick to the argument.
Some commenters have amazing wit. There are many types of humorous replies. The ones I really like are those that are very distant that if you're not careful you'll miss it. You can guess that I like Far Side the cartoon. I also like Far Side one of my followers!
Commenters usually have their own characteristics and their comments are predictable. In other words readers that are stable and thoughtful.
Other commenters take a global view and are able to make a comment the applies to the whole post. Others will focus on one point in the post. I tend to reply to one small part of the post. I haven't missed the rest of the post . I just think that one part of the post is more important to me.
It's gratifying to see how hard readers work to keep up with comments. Some days you find a reader will comment on three or four posts. I appreciate people who have been busy and go back and read older posts. I find that sometimes I just have to miss comments for a day or two. I can read the posts but I don't have time to make comments.
Now I've posted on comments before. Comments are very meaningful and positive for me. The comments keep me going.
Thanks to all readers who stop by Hiawatha House and leave a comment.
