I’ve been thinking about how to best develop a conversation on my blog. So far when someone has made a comment I’ve read it and sometimes emailed the commenter thanking them for the effort but most of the time I’ve done nothing more than read the comment. Not good enough.
Nancy White has just made a post referring to some ideas from Teresa Nielsen Hayden on how to cultivate community in a blog environment. I think the suggestions are practical and useful. But I still have some basic questions.
Should I respond to comments with comments of my own? Should I include the comment in a follow up post and respond to the idea? Or should I update the original post with the comment (suggested in Nancy’s post)?
I would love to know what you think.
