How do you handle comments on your blog?
I was over at The Ice Box where Desert Songbird was talking about conversations within comments.
This has been a topic that I’ve thought about many times and I’m still not sure what’s the best way to handle it. What I do know is that comments should be followed up on, especially those that ask specific questions. Yes, I know I’m not the best at doing this but I am going to make an effort to do better . . . I promise!
As I was doing a little research, I came across a couple of great posts that address the issue of comments.

Basically, the idea is to repsond to comments to show your readers that they are important. Makes sense, right?
But what’s the best way to do this? Should I email eveyone personally? Do I respond on my blog so that others can follow along in the conversation? If I do that, should I respond within each individual comment or start a new comment box? There’s so many things to consider.
What do you think? How do you respond to your comments? How would you like a response to the comments you leave here?
