I'm writing about Number 4. It is something near and dear to my heart! Blogging!
Others have mentioned this, and I am now going to do the same. Only I'm also going to enlighten you with my own personal downfall with this feature.
It's the email option. If you leave me a comment, I WANT to be able to respond to you directly from my email notification. That gives me the chance to get you laughing twice in one day. Uh-huh. You know it! The only other option is for me to leave a random comment on YOUR blog, or to respond to you in my own comment section, in hopes that you will come back again. And again. And again. Just in case I've responded to you.
And how fair (or likely, let's be honest) is that?
So, I don't know, somehow you go into your settings and check a box, or maybe uncheck a box, or something, and that will let me respond to you via email. Usually I hit respond and type up my very clever words and then look up to notice the @nocomment thingy. That sucks.
The downfall with this feature, but not downfall enough to make me stop, is that I find it incredibly convenient.
What? You don't think that's a downfall?
Well, it is.
Because now, instead of making time to get to your blog in return, I'm just responding via email, and using that time that I once had for blogging and filling my face in front of the TV instead.
And that part truly sucks because I really miss your blog.
But check off that email box thingy in your settings anyway, would you please??
I'm sure there are LOTS of blogs to get to today. Go see Mama Kat for the participants!
