I have a question for y’all. This has been an ongoing debate here in the House of Fiddle for that last 2 and a half years that I’ve been blogging.
When a reader leaves a comment on a blog, perhaps asking a question, is it okay for the writer of the post to answer the question within the same comment box? That would mean editing the reader’s comment, but only by adding the follow up after the initial question.
Or is it bad form to do that, and the writer of the post should reply via e-mail, or in a separate comment?
I noticed that one of my favorite blogging people, Antique Mommy, will often reply to a comment in the same box. And that just makes sense to me. That way, other readers can read it. And she’s commenting directly to the comment. Instead of several comments down.
Sometimes, I can’t read comments until later in the day, and I would love to respond to that comment directly. Seems like that best way to do it.
Am I making sense?
I wanted to get the opinions of other bloggers and commenters in this area.
Carry on. And have a great weekend!!!
