A couple of weeks ago, for Blogging Insights # 49, I asked my readers for any topics that they would like to see discussed on this forum. Sadje whom you all know from her tremendously popular blog KeepItAlive, was the first to respond. She presented a very discussion worthy topic, set out four questions and elaborated very clearly what she wanted us to tell her.
So here are her questions without any additions from me:
I really would want to read the answers to the following questions;
How long should the comment thread be? For example, if some blogger likes your post and says so, you thank them. Then they say that you’re welcome or it’s a pleasure, afterwards most shift to emojis or smiley faces. It can go on for quite some while. So I would really like to know what is the acceptable cutoff number.
Reblogging etiquette; I reblog the responses to my prompt as I state in my prompt post. But if I want to reblog a post which I like or was moved by, should I ask them first? What is the accepted protocol for that?
What should you do when people don’t respond to your comments on their posts? Should you stop commenting on their post or give them a reminder about your comment?
Award posts; These are the trickiest regarding etiquette, as most people don’t even acknowledge that they were nominated for that particular award. What should be the proper way to deal with this situation?
You can answer any or all of these questions by leaving a reply in my comments section.
Better still, why not discuss them in a post of your own.
Just remember to tag it
I am still open o new ideas for this series. Please continue to share any issues that you would like to see debated on Blogging Insights.
