Do you like an answer when you comment?

I have opened a poll on the side of the blog. I'm wondering if you like answers to your comments. Some comments of course don't really need an answer. But some do. If you are a new follower and you leave a comment, do you like to hear from the blog writer or is that annoying? Do you come back and check the comments to see if the blog writer has answered you there, or do you click the box that says you can receive emails of consecutive comments? Would you like an email from the blog writer if he/she feels the need to answer you? Would you like to see blog posts answering comments or questions every once in a while?

I'm not saying I would answer every single comment. I don't want to be fake. If I were to answer them it would be a sincere answer that I felt the need to say. But I feel like some of you start a conversation with me and I don't hit the ball back. So I want to see exactly what you think. I'll leave the poll open for two weeks, maybe a month. I need some substantial feedback to make my decision on this. And feel free to leave comments!

I rarely go back and check for responses to my comments, so unless someone e-mails me, I usually don't get it.

Well, you know my tendencies to be stalkeresque so I would check the comment section, and that would seem easier than an email for you and the writer. Personally, I feel that if a person cares enough about the question they ask, they would check back in the comments. That's why it would be better than email. Also, others would benefit from the question and answer as well where as if you email, others would not know the answer - and they could have the same question.

I love comments, and being responded to in comments. I just hit subscribe, so that way if someone responds to me I can see it.

I understand people are busy though, so I don't necessarily expect a response every time. However, if the author of the blog never never never responds to me (especially when they only have a handful of followers) I tend to stop reading their blogs, because I feel ignored. Maybe that's rude of me? Although, even if they just send out a general "I read your comments" is fine enough for me.

I like replies if they are necessary.

Thanks for participating in my Last Line Blogfest. I appreciate it.
