Blogging Advice and Questions: OK, neither (just answers).

Thanks to Maggie for the prompt (Blogging Advice and Questions). It gave me a reason not to do the other things I had planned.

  1. Do you respond to every comment, even if it is just an emoji?
    Yes. Even a ‘like’ let’s the commenter know that you have read and appreciate the interaction.
  2. Are there styles, colors, or fonts that make reading a blog more difficult?
    Short answer: Yes. Not so short: It varies from reader to reader, so it’s difficult to choose on that will appeal to all. If the font is to small, I’ll usually skim or pass.
  3. Under what circumstances would you block a user?
    I haven’t had to block any bloggers yet, but I have unfollowed a few. I am impressed with the spam blocker that WordPress has. I have to go through the spam folder quite often to clean it out. I’ll usuallyumm, I mean always—block the users offering to show their naughty bits.
  4. Are there certain topics you refuse to engage with?
    Depends. Sometimes a post is set up to gather opinions in a non-confrontational way, but it can be easy for people to become aggressive. Everyone is entitled to their opinion as long as they don’t use it as a means to harm or belittle others.
  5. How do you feel about blogging awards?
    YAY! It’s a nice way to acknowledge another’s work.
  6. How old is your current blog?
    Two years? Can I look that up somewhere?
  7. Do you respond to prompts?
    Like this one?
  8. Do the number of your blog followers matter to you?
    Not as much as having a group of supportive followers does.
  9. What motivates you to follow or unfollow a blog?
    A blog has to have value and be entertaining. If it is just a platform to rant on personal opinions, it’s not for me.
  10. What is your blogging pet peeve?
    On WordPress, trying to highlight a single block without getting everything.
