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.
If someone likes and comments on my post just to say they liked it or enjoyed reading it, I will “like” their comment and reply with a thank you. That’s where, in my opinion, it should end.
What is the acceptable protocol for reblogging?
I generally ask the blogger’s permission to reblog their post. But I’ve yet to encounter a blogger who has responded, “Don’t you dare.” I think most bloggers appreciate having their posts reblogged.
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?
A blogger may be busy or have real life activities limiting their time to read and respond to other bloggers’ comments. So if they don’t respond to a comment I made on one of their posts, it’s no biggie to me.
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?
I don’t know that there is a “proper” way, per se, to deal with blog award nominations. Mine is an award-free blog, but it still gets nominated for myriad blog awards. I appreciate the recognition and will typically respond to the blogger who nominated my blog with my own post thanking them for the nomination and posting my answers to the questions they posed. But I do not then, as most blog award rules encourage, nominate other specific bloggers or pose my own series of questions. Instead, I throw it open to any and all other bloggers who may wish to answer the same questions that the blogger who nominated my blog posed.
