Why I comment

July 23, 2008

I comment because of various reasons and you probably share them, but at times I don’t comment even though these reasons are present. But first the reasons. They are broadly four:

  • I feel strongly about something
  • I learnt something from reading the post and want to convey my appreciation
  • I like the way the writer has taken a mundane subject and made it interesting and/or funny
  • I feel like sharing my own experience

But this doesn’t mean that I always comment if one of the above reasons is present. I may not comment because I don’t feel comfortable commenting. I may not feel comfortable commenting for many reasons and an important one is if the writer does not have a clear persona that comes through. Sure, a face helps but that’s not critical. Some sort of a name, even if it’s a nickname helps. It’s not so much the name or even the face as much as getting a sense of who the person is. And no I don’t mean temperament because it’s rare that a blogger reveals all aspects of his/her personality or temperament on the blog. When I say getting the sense of who the blogger is I mean in terms of thought process. Approximate age, gender, and occupation and education helps fix this in my mind.

But why does it influence my commenting? Let me give some examples. If a person writes a post advocating violence, I would prefer to know if he/she is part of any organized gang or violent group. This isn’t as bizarre as it sounds…because I’m sure even Naxalites blog! O.K, this is an extreme example because a Naxalite cannot possibly say he is a Naxalite as he will go to jail. However if this person is writing under his/her own name, there are less chances of subterfuge.

If a person writes about loneliness and that person is 14, it surely has a different connotation than if the person is single and 40 and what I comment will depend greatly on that.

Now take a person is addicted to drugs who writes a post advocating free use…ohh oh. Another case of a drug addict never revealing it as he/she could go to jail. But that’s exactly what I mean. If I don’t know the person’s identity and that person is advocating free use of drugs and not mentioning anything about whether he uses drugs, then I might not feel comfortable commenting.

Overall, blogging under one’s real persona helps commentators get a handle on commenting. One doesn’t want to be completely off the mark!

At times even if I am comfortable with the amount I know about the author I may not comment and this is usually because of two reasons, and again I am sure many people share these reasons:

  • I don’t read the blog regularly
  • I read the blog but haven’t read that particular post/posts of the author
  • I have read the post but have nothing to say

I don’t read the blog regularly!! Why ever not? Well, I can read only so many blogs and no more.

I read the blog but haven’t read the post or posts!! Why ever not? Well, it could be because of lack of time on that particular day/days or because the title or subject doesn’t interest me. Or perhaps the post is not written by that person at all…for example a person may publish a poem by a well known poet on his/her blog (with acknowledgement ofcourse). I don’t feel like commenting on such posts. I can’t even get myself to even read or skim over them.

At times I may not read the post/posts because the subject matter does not hold my attention. And no, this doesn’t reflect on the author. The post may be written very well indeed. Why, some of my best written posts have attracted few comments so I know that unless the subject is interesting to the reader or unless he wants to get into the kind of depth I have done, he/she won’t read it. An article on rare manuscripts for instance could perhaps only attract a comment from someone in the field. He/she would have something to say. I have several commentators who comment according to subject. Some only comment on my movie posts, some only on my culture posts and so on. I don’t expect them to deviate from their pattern…if they do I am happy though!

You mean, I won’t bother to read the post even for a blogger friend?
No. I cannot force myself to read something, just like I cannot force myself to eat something! And one thing I hate doing is skimming over a post and writing something after reading the first two lines and the last two lines.

If I have written silly comments at times it’s because I so badly want to say something to the author but actually have nothing to say! But I say it anyway, because I want the author to know that I’ve read that post and liked it. This last I don’t mind doing, but only if I have read the post. I may not have understood it fully, but if I commented, it means I read it.

Which brings me to the second reason why I don’t comment (at times) – I have nothing to say! I think I should practice this more often but if I read the post I am tempted to comment. Being a talkative person in real life, I like to say something, even if it’s nonsense! But yeah, I am trying to resist saying something for the sake of it. But like I said, at times I simply want my blogger friend to know that I’m around! Net friendship is a two-way process after all.

But what about this whole thing of “return” comments? It makes me uncomfortable even though it is a reality of blog life. If I like a post a lot or immediately relate to it or I want to share something, I will comment irrespective of whether the blogger comments on my blog or not. But at the same time let me say that if a blogger is taking the time to read my blog everyday and also comments on almost every post of mine, I will tend to visit that person’s blog…it’s something called socialisation. It takes effort to spend those few minutes of your time to read someone’s blog, think of something to say and then say it and if someone is making that effort I appreciate it highly.

The fact that someone comments regularly on my blog does influence me, but it does not control me.

However if I remain clueless about the person’s real persona and that person has a blog, I will avoid commenting anyway, whether that person comes to my blog or not. I have the utmost respect for that person, just that I don’t feel comfortable commenting.

About comments on my own blog, like most people, I prefer polite commentators. While I delete most comments with personal insinuations, at times I have kept rude comments and have answered them in kind. Yes, being rude to a regular commentator can also mean that the commentator may cease to be a commentator but that’s okay with me. I don’t like bullshit.

On the other hand I have had commentators who have been very sporting when I give a rude answer to their own rude comment and they have not left me. They know who they are and I thank them! Blogging is after all like a game and repartee is not to be taken so seriously! If the commentator has chosen his words unwisely he/she has to be prepared for an answer. I am not talking of actual disagreement here, because disagreement can be worded well…I am talking of rudeness.

I don’t like commentators who stop commenting on my blog because I have failed to comment on their several posts. I never behave in this petty manner and expect others to respect my time and my reading preferences.

I also don’t like it when commentators write comments under false pretences. For example, if I write a post criticizing Narendra Modi then I want to be sure that the person defending Modi is not a party member or someone from their PR cell. If I write a post condemning hoarding proliferation, I would like to know if the commentator is a hoarding contractor. If I write a post on the dowry law being misused, I would like to know if the person writing a I-hate-women comment has been a victim of the dowry law. On the posts mentioned above I have had commentators with a hidden agenda. Its perfectly natural to have an agenda, but if someone has a hidden agenda, I feel very uncomfortable. Most of these people are not regular commentators but come to my blog from google search. They leave just one comment and never return.

In conclusion I want to say that it’s wonderful to get comments, and its also wonderful to comment. We all enjoy it but at the same time I think at times we all get too serious!

    good to see this, thank you

    lol i always look forward to your comments and posts🙂 It is quite understandable…the first thing i do after i open my google reader is just see the title and decided if i want to read it or not…as you say a person can read only so much🙂

    I never thought you go through such a long process of reading/understanding/thinking and then you post your comment. :-)) Interesting!!!

  4. July 23, 2008 9:13 pm

    I have this habit of yours too. If I read the post in entirety I tend to comment even if it is needed or not, you know just for the sake of commenting…oops I did this again!

    But I do respect you for the way you reply to the comments from your readers. It makes it interactive and also makes me come back to your blog.

  5. July 23, 2008 9:14 pm

    blogging is a social phenomena..and yeah now it has become kind of unwritten rule “u scratch my back I scratch yours”…which is very weird..sometimes a person doesn’t have the knowledge, interest in that post then how can he comment!!!

  6. July 23, 2008 9:46 pm

    I agree with your views. It is not possible to comment on each and every post.🙂

  7. July 23, 2008 10:07 pm

    Nita, I completely agree with you that knowing an author’s persona is definitely important for commenting. But, at times, the author’s persona can also be known from the topics he chooses for blogging. While it might always not be true, but in most cases, a writer’s post definitely reflets his thoughts and the kind of person he is. It is something intangible like “the feel of the blog”. We can catch the pulse of the blog and consequently that of the writer. I can quote an example. I frankly confess that I do not know your age or qualification. But then, after reading your posts I can definitely understand your persona to some extent. The topics on which you blog, th amount of research you do before actually posting something..all this definitely say something about the persona. And yes I do agree that to comment on certain kinds of posts, say “loneliness”, knowing the age of the author would definitely help! And if one comments regularly on someone’s blog, one need not expect that the same someone should post comments on his/her blog too. I believe expectations should come with responsibilities. when we expect someone to post comments on our blogs, it is also our responsiblity to write on topics that intrigue them. All in all, a wonderful introspection for this blogging world! Your posts have always been so!

  8. July 23, 2008 10:23 pm

    deanjbaker, vishesh, Dinesh Babu, Old Sailor, thanks for your response!

    Ravi,😀🙂

    Rahul, Blogging is a social phenomena! so right!! And it is wierd isn’t it to what extent this you scratch my back and I scratch yours goes to!

    Manoj, true what you said. The person’s persona does come through his ideas. I do agree iwth you there. And I really liked this remark of yours:

    I believe expectations should come with responsibilities. when we expect someone to post comments on our blogs, it is also our responsiblity to write on topics that intrigue them.

  9. July 23, 2008 10:38 pm

    Thanks for linking my post and I’m honored to know my post inspired you!!🙂 As for me, a new blog must appeal to me by topics and look then only I can comment. [I cant stand blogs having black background🙂 ] Then as I get that familiar feeling, I become a regular reader. When I became active in blogosphere I’d first bookmarked lots of blogs but after taking whole vacation to read them (as per my resolution) I decided on some and later on as more bloggers became known, my blog roll increased to what it is now. But incase of regular commenting, I think a limited blog roll (read:blogs one actually reads) is a reason too for regular commenting.
    I completely agree with ur reasons and the need to actually know some basic things about a blogger before being able to or even feel like commenting.

  10. July 23, 2008 10:42 pm

    If wordpress had an option to know who all viewed the post, that would be a great help for the blogger. So we can avoid “commenting just to let the blogger know that we read the post”
    I do that at times( this is not one of them😀 )

  11. July 23, 2008 11:11 pm

    I think Blog-Life is to enjoy, to socialize, to comment, …
    I read regulary your blog because i’m deeply interested in India and your blog is the one which give me more information…also u post every day!!!!! that make ur regular readers be more regular!!! at least jn my case.
    I read almost all of your posts, when i comment its becase i think my comment can be interesting or can add something, …and also to socialize!🙂
    but many times i dont understant or i dont know what they are about (like politics,…)…as i’m not indian and many issues are out of my hands!!!😉 so i can’t comment!!!
    *Feel free to comment or not.
    *Long life to ur blog!

    Sometimes I feel like commenting and sometimes not……..
    I think comments section is a discussion place where readers comment on the content of the post and the author interact with them.
    Comments must not be a compulsion, it must be more of a voluntary thing for a reader to do even if he has nothing to say.

  13. July 23, 2008 11:56 pm

    Totally agree with you on this one. I maintain that too. Well, this post intrigued me and hence I’m commenting🙂

    Btw, I realised I had to logout and comment so that I get the url entering option activated. I always checked other blogs while I was logged in and so did not bother to check if my name appeared as a link or not. Thanks for pointing out. These are things you learn as you blog along😀 just like I did not know in the beginning, and you said it too, that one had to reply to comments😀

  14. July 24, 2008 12:33 am

    I have always considered comments to be gifts left for me by someone who took the time to wrap and present their words to me. I don’t consider it vital to return the favor and comment only because not all comments require a response. I normally comment sporadically because of many factors, not the least of which is being split in several directions.

    I noted Nita you mentioned the age issue and I agree. Unless I know for a fact that the person is over 18 years old, I am very wary of what I say on a new blog.

    I think it was a very well done introspective post and should help clear things to many of your readers and friends on blogosphere.

  16. July 24, 2008 3:22 am

    I am curious about one of your reasons – you don’t comment on a blog if you don’t read it regularly. Can you elaborate on why not reading that blog often makes you hesitant?

    I am curious because I am sure many others share your opinion. But I can never figure out why😦 Do people think the existing commentators are all one big group and they feel like an outsider? I can relate to that, I have felt that way sometimes.

    But is there something else that makes people hesitate?

  17. July 24, 2008 7:06 am

    Reema, you are welcome.🙂 Yep, its impossible to read too many blogs! One gets no time to write! My first priority is to write, second to answer comments and only then comment on another blog.

    xylene, thanks.🙂

    francina, thanks. yes, its fun to socialise isn’t it! Its good to do it through ideas on one’s blog. I love the blog life as one can share interests!

    batta420, true the author answering is very important. If someone doesn’t answer my comment it dampens my enthusiasm, but for me at least its not possible to answer comments on old posts anymore. I find it difficult to keep up because of lack of time. It can take almost an hour everyday to write replies to comments. I love doing it, but at times it can get very hectic.

    snippetsnscribbles, thanks.🙂 I didn’t know one had to reply to comments for at least 6 months! Now I know, but at times I can’t do it because of lack of time.

    Brian, this general feel of what the person is all about is very important for me! And what I like about your blog is the honesty on it! You could easily have blogged without revealing your background and infact I have a feeling most people who have something like that would probably put up a fake blog.

    lallopallo, I hope so!🙂

    Lekhni, what I meant was that if I don’t read the blog regularly, it means that its not possible to comment as I haven’t read it. Sorry if that was a little confusing! And I am sure there are other reasons too why people don’t comment and I think shyness has something to do with it too. However I don’t feel that commentators are one big group, they often come from different groups. In fact commentators on my blog have often had heated arguments!🙂

    I comment because

    1) I feel strongly about any subject
    2) I want to share my thoughts
    3) I want to share my experiences

    Also, while commenting on this blog i’ve developed some understanding about you and also about many of the other regular commentators, as if i know them…i like reading comments by them too

    btw Nita you’re looking like Indira Gandhi in the snap🙂

  19. July 24, 2008 9:55 am

    Hi Nita !
    My first time here, and all I’ve been doing for the past half an hour, is reading your old posts ! Awesome blog…
    In my case, most of the times, I find myself unable to comment when I really like a post ! It’s almost like, there is nothing I could add to that wonderful piece of writing ! (Doesn’t mean I didn’t like this post though🙂 )
    Also, I have to admit I try to shield my identity as far as possible when I blog (maybe because I don’t want my real-life family or friends to know about my ‘secret blog’ !)

  20. July 24, 2008 10:18 am

    Nita,
    As xylene puts it, even for topics not of much interest to me and I feel the piece is a good read,I comment to say “Hey! I was here”

    Shamelessly, I am commenting again.

    -Nikhil

  21. July 24, 2008 11:37 am

    Hey…this a good subject. Since, I read many blogs but I do not comment on most of them.

    Its mainly because of lack of opinion or time, or sometimes due to lack of knowledge and understanding of the stuff that post is covering. In many cases, I do not comment realizing that if I do, the length of the comment is going to be pretty long(laziness).

    Sometimes in many News-blogs, one is not required to comment, and 75% of the commentators/commenters commenting there in are usually pimping their own blog links in the comments.

    Then there are type of blogs,like yours where people are provoked😉 to comment due to similarity of opinion like in this case or due to its difference etc., or they have additions to facts already covered in the post. And there are blogs like mine, where I myself I do not expect people to comment and if they do, I do not know whether am I supposed to reply to a Emoticon or a humorous but a sarcastic comment ending in a question mark. And sometimes, I have to reply to a emoticon ” :)) ” when even after 3 days the commenter is checking out the post to check whether I have replied to his/her comment or not.

    And as Xylene said, sometimes we want to tell people that we read “this” post, and sometimes we as a blogger also are interested to know who are reading our blogs. I don’t know whether that would be an actual reason to comment or to expect one. When are stats are showing 500 humans visited and other 500 are reading by feeds, do we want to know all of them !

  22. July 24, 2008 11:40 am

    hey, see i am here.. and have read the whole post and most of the comments!🙂😛

    as usual good post (i am appreceiative! )

    and i am writing coz it held my interest and the most important reason to comment here is to let you know, i came and read your post!🙂

    BTW, good snap and some how i like snaps in “sapia”

  23. July 24, 2008 11:56 am

    typos above…*

    Now, with reference to Reema’s post, I think I should comment something like this:
    “I lurk here often”, “I lurk here on weekends”,”I lurk here once a month” at almost all common blogs in your blogroll esp. by Indian bloggers.

  24. July 24, 2008 1:13 pm

    Vivek M, my nose is not long! It’s actually a pug nose.🙂

    Gee, thanks. I understand why you want to shield your identity. If one reveals one’s identity its difficult to write anything personal, well, for many people. Certainly for me!

    Nikhil, if you are commenting for the sake of it, thank you! I really appreciate it. It just means you are a social person and you have the time right now, that’s all. Its always great to get some feedback about one’s post, so thanks!🙂

    Anshul, thanks for sharing that. Whether we want to know about those others, well I guess most of them come for a second or so and don’t read. If someone reads, I would love to know what they feel.

    Sakhi, thanks.🙂

  26. July 24, 2008 3:30 pm

    Very interesting post. It was insightful and instructive too for me, as I am more of a blog-reader than blog-writer. I usually cannot afford much time on net, and it would really be difficult to comment on everything I read! I have not even found the time to blog on all that I have to say, so I comment when I have something to say or I really feel like giving a feedback to the writer! And I never expect replies to my comments, unless I have asked a question.
    And for you, with so much of feedback, it must be difficult to react to all! But I really really appreciate your replying to my mails, I truly had not expected you to!

    Thanks Nomad. I try to answer all comments to new posts but rarely to old posts, unless someone asks me a question. It is difficult for me to answer all comments…but I do enjoy interacting with readers. – Nita.

    I really didn’t plan to comment on this since I am not a blogger. But, I noticed some non-bloggers giving their reasons, so here is mine: if I don’t comment, it’s usually because I did not read the post or due to lack of time or because I have nothing to add. If I do comment it’s either because I feel strongly about it or to just show my presence.
    I really appreciate the fact that you take the time to acknowledge each and every reader.
    I am a regular reader of your blog and the first thing I do when I switch on the computer is to check your blog!

    wishtobeanon, thanks! you may not be a blogger but you are a great commentator! Your support has been important to me. The time when you disappeared for a few months, I missed your comments. – Nita.

  28. July 24, 2008 5:25 pm

    Hi Nita,

    This a great topic for all bloggers. For me I welcome comments with links to posts especially if they are links to relevant topics. Spam is spam, but a legitimate post link is fine with me. I’ve never though subscribed to replying to every comment received or visiting every single commentator. If I time and the inclination, I will visit. My posts are there to be read and if what you read moves you in some way, then feel free to comment.

    Hi Rose and welcome! – Nita.

  29. July 24, 2008 5:49 pm

    Thanks, it’s my turn to clarify – I agree that commentators belong to diverse groups. But for an outsider (and this is how it seemed to me before I started blogging) all the commentators seemed to know each other and somehow, this added to my hesitation/ shyness in commenting🙂

  30. July 24, 2008 6:53 pm

    Hi Nita, my first time commenting here but I have been a regular visitor for a couple of months now. I wish I had done this sooner, but honestly, your posts are usually so informative and well presented (with balanced view points) that I am at a loss to add something of my own. And I don’t mean this as an excuse or empty flattery.

    In my case, when I start commenting on a blog, I feel compelled to continue it – not on every post, but regularly enough. I know I feel disappointed when a regular commentator on my blog disappears without warning for months, so…

    Anyhow, now that I’ve overcome my initial shyness, you will see me here more often I guess.🙂

    Nice to meet you Devaki! But please don’t feel the pressure to comment. Yes I would love it if you do comment, but at the same time I want my commentators to feel free. Thank you for being here. – Nita.

  31. July 24, 2008 8:35 pm

    hmm I do comment on almost most of the posts I read, but when the post is factual I tend to avoid commenting because I may not know the facts too well, I prefer posts which are a personal view at a subject, or more of personal touch with them.
    I do not believe in return comments, I would prefer to comment when I have something to say, the other guy/girl may or not comment back..

    I already knew that about you from the posts you choose to comment on! – Nita.

  33. July 25, 2008 12:14 am

    Dear Nita,

    I know this issue of commenting is close to your heart – as someone getting so many comments (and really very relevant debates!) you are facing all different kind of people and their comments. I guess you may write a book on commenting🙂

    You reasons for commenting are very right, I guess I have the same. You know that I love to comment on your blog because your topics and level are indeed great – but I also can not keep on with every post, often because I can not relate to some things (like the modern Indian politics)…

    I consider myself very lucky getting your regular comments on my blog – every time it feels very special!
    All my love,
    axinia

    There are blogs which get far more comments than mine! In any case I do not think comments reflect on the quality of the post. If one writes something which has different sides of the issue, there are likely to be more comments, in other words, a hot topic. And I am also lucky to have you…as a commentator! Thanks Axinia! – Nita.

  34. July 25, 2008 12:18 am

    wonderful points covered….
    i hate people who attack personally in comments..i have got many in the past i have published most of them ..sometimes replying rudely sometimes i never replied….
    ..
    i have seen people who never reply to the comments ..not many but certainly yes …
    the point u have mentioned about socializing is the most important part of blogging these days…i have been able to find so many wonderful and creative writers ..With each post i read i feel that i have learned something…. I love this part of blogging ..

    by the way nice header///dint notice the change before.///did u change it recently ???

    I change my header at least once a week, often twice a week. – Nita.

    Hi, Nita. I’m a new reader to your blog (although I only drop in now and then). Just wanted to say that most of your articles do hold my interest🙂. I like the variety and breadth of the topics you cover, and the best thing is that there is always something or the other to do with India. Keep up the good work!

I do read your posts in my blog surfer. I would like to come in here everyday and fight word-wars with everyone because my views are so often contrarian. To your enormous collective relief, I am sadly unable to. However, I admire your dedication to a service that you are freely providing to your readership. If I could pay you, please accept a virtual token donation of $100.

    Rdoc, I humbly accept the token!🙂 At times however a comment is worth more.🙂 Talking about identities, I wonder if you remember I asked you once your real name and you sent me an email with the information and even asked me to check it out on the web! Thanks for doing that! – Nita.

    I comment, when I feel connnected to what I read, and want to express my opinion on it.

    I comment when I want to appreciate a writer about the things he has wriiten, be it even against my own personal views.

    Does Viewing Comments, come under Why I comment? if it does, I see coments to know about what other people think.I like observing people.

    I also have one very selfish reason of commenting and that is to get noticed, which at times is wrong and I feel bad about it after doing it.*Trying to get over this habit

    I comment because I love to comment.

    Blogging is a social activity and its great when it is mutual. But as you pointed out correctly that not commenting on someone’s post because that blogger is not commenting on yours is really bad. Your comment should be posted when you have read something really interesting and want to share your feelings or experiences. That is the crux.

    Amit, thanks. I agree with you completely!! – Nita.

    I hadn’t considered this issue seriously so far, but reading through your post I feel that I have similar thoughts on the subject.
    In your case, I am usually late commenting because I do not like to read your posts in a hurry. There is so much information and thought in each post that I want to do justice to it by reading them only when I can devote sufficient time. And most of the time I find myself agreeing with you or that my thoughts have already been expressed in another comment.
    I do wish there was a way to let my favourite bloggers know that I am reading them regularly even when i do not have anything to add to the content. I mean other than the inane ‘nice post’ one.

    And yes I love your comments on my posts because you always present another POV or an angle that I have missed.

    I am very glad you wrote this post, Nita. If you remember (😛 ), some days ago, I told you (while commenting somewhere on your blog) that I dont feel like commenting sometimes and you reassured me I was not being paranoid🙂

    After reading your post, I realized how commenting is important sometimes. I read nearly every blog I come across but hardly comment. May be because of recent happenings in my life.

    And glad to see you little off-the-track again. I mean off the track of “Wide angle view…….”

    Cheers🙂

    Well I wrote this because I thought it wasn’t that off-track!🙂 why do you think I chose the phrase “wide angle” ?😉 And I hope things get sorted out soon at your end Suda, I am sure they will. And about commenting, feel free. Your comments are always appreciated! – Nita.

    Hey Nita, thats a cute pic. Is that work of photoshop???? Gives it a nice effect🙂

    Good to read this post on your blogging or should i say your commenting style. I would say I agree with most of the points you have brought forward. They are very relevant for bloggers who have a busy social life…

    Yes, that was done in photoshop, first distorted and then coloured. If one tries to enlarge it one will get a distorted effect! – Nita.

    Nita this is a wonderful post and it echos, almost entirely, my feelings too. Yesterday and today combined, for example, I must have spent 3 hours on your blog, which I still consider grossly insufficient. But I had 28 posts unread, and often your comments section is so rich that I dont want to miss. At the end of 30-40 comments, there is hardly anything left for me to write… LOL
    cheers!

    Priyank, I value your readership and this means a lot to me. Thanks. – Nita.
