'Mel on reading' is a little feature I created as part of my Fairytale news. It's my way to show my thoughts on topics that go from pet peeves in reading to my favorite things in books.
I like to stay up to date when it comes to commenting. I leave comments around the blogosphere almost every day, because I follow a lot of blogs and I want to give everyone some comment love. It sometimes still happens that I’m behind on commenting. If I take my situation now; I went away for four days and I have around 500 unread posts I still need to comment on. Sometimes it's so tempting to click on the 'read all' button, but I would feel.. guilty and I'm afraid I missed exciting posts.
This got me thinking, how do you feel about commenting on older posts? Do you feel like it’s a waste of time, because the blogger is already several posts further? Or do you feel like you still want to give that old post some comment love? Sometimes I like to scroll in the archive from a blog and I'm not sure if it's appreciated if I comment on a very old post or if those posts just doesn't matter anymore.
So, how do you feel as blogger if you get comments on older posts? I personally love it, because it shows me that people pay attention to my blog. That sometimes they might look for a review and that they have found it on my blog, doesn’t matter how old it is. I think older posts, like older books, always deserve comment love and attention.
