I'm always deliriously excited when I receive comments. I'm a bit of a lurker myself you see, I read many blogs but rarely comment. I should and want to comment more (and to those of you who are reading this now who have blogs which I in-turn read - I am going to attempt to comment more in the future, in fact I've set myself a goal of 10 comments this evening!). Mostly I'm worried I'll say something lame like "great post!" - which is slightly counter intuitive seeing as I would totally geek out with love if someone wrote that to me. I think it is a great way to form community and open up a dialogue in what can be a very one-sided conversation at times. I truly admire those who take part in commenting and get amongst it with sharing, encouragement and debate. As a side note to all my readers who just like to read and look, I love you too and keep lurking away, I totally get it and don't ever want you to feel pressure to comment.
I'm writing about this because I've installed a new commenting system. The blogger one can be a bit restrictive and I never quite known the best way to respond to comments. Please bear with me as I work out the kinks and let me know if you have any thoughts. Cheers big ears!
