Out of bloggable content, and a bit bored of my blog the way it is shaping up. I am throwing this space open for some "healthy" discussion.
My question is about "personal bloggers" (like your very own favourite deep_thought, for e.g.) i.e bloggers who blog about their daily lives and related insights, personal opinions etc.
1) What kind of expectations do you have from your comments space? Where do you draw the line at a comment being personal, and a comment being just that- a passing thought by someone?
2) As a commenter-when you read personal blogs and disagree with the author- how many times have you expressed it, and how many times have you walked away thinking "meh- his life his opinion"? How many times have you disagreed without disclosing your blog identity?
3) Why should it matter if the commenter (especially a dissenter) is anonymous or has a blog?
4) My point is, do personal bloggers actually favour healthy discussion on their blogs, or do they blog just to maintain a one-way dialog as an online diary and the comments are left open only for agreements ("oh i feel your pain, so true") type comments or praise ("oh tgfi you are so cool i love your blog") types or constructive advice ("have you tried this") type comments?
Plis diskass! Lurkers, this would be a good time to come out and say what you think. Anonymously, if you so please. :)
