Susan - I would say that most of the time (probably 99%), if I take the time to read a post, I will be commenting on it. There are rare occasions where I will read a post and not provide a comment. In those instances, it's mainly like Ron and Alexandra Seigel said, the post is just on a different wave length and I really don't have anything to say.

Susan,

The only time I don't comment is when the post is on a different wave length than mine.  Those are usually the ones bitching and moaning about the incompetence of other agents while lauding their personal perfection, and I click away without finishing the post.  They are entitled to bitching and moaning, I am just not interested.  I try to comment on all the commenters as well as the ones I follow.  Often I do many more than 20, if time is on my side.  A

Susan- if I'm short on time and the post has a good amount of comments, I might not comment. And as Ron and Alexandra Seigel said, i might not comment if it turned out to be a rant or topic that didn't appeal to me. Sometimes I don't leave a comment because I have nothing I can add.

Susan, I only wish I had more time to comment on more posts.  I will first comment on everyone who's commented on my posts from the day before and if I have some time left, I will do my best.

Hi Susan, it depends on the topic and if the person who wrote the blog did so in such a way that it was engaging.  Poorly written blogs and can be difficult for me to respond to.  But that's just me.

Sometimes I read and have nothing to add to the conversation; sometimes I read and would have nothing positive to say so I stay silent; sometimes I read and feel by the end of the post it was a worthless, stupid, badly written post; and sometimes I read and just like the post.

I'm working very hard on being positive and not saying anything negative. So, if I read a post and I feel a negative comment coming from my finger tips--I will just hit the back space button!

Hi Susan,

I was wondering about the same thing. I recently had a post that got a lot of traffic and was on the AR home page because of the traffic but it mostly just got clicks and not many comments or likes at all. I do realize I don't always comment but like some others have said, it might not have anything to add to the conversation. But I will certainly keep this in mind going forward; saying something is much more helpful than nothing at all.

Sorry, but if a blog does not peak my interest enough to read the whole thing, I am not going to leave any comment  just to make the blogger feel good.

My job is not therapy.

I almost always do post a comment, if I have the time or inspiration to add something to the conversation.  I rarely comment with a short "Nice post".  I might just "like" the post and not comment.   I try to add something worthwhile... or at least my perspective on a subject.  There have been a few occasions where I have started to compose a comment, and couldn't quite figure out a tactful way of addressing the subject without offending the poster, so I delete it and move on.  LOL
