There are many blogs out there that I would love to comment on regularly, but I don’t. It’s not that I don’t want to weigh in on whatever your topic of the day is. It’s that you make it too damn difficult.
I just finished reading a blog post and wrote a pretty lengthy comment only to discover that the person has set the parameters for posting comments to a) using a google ID or b) have an open ID. Why can’t I just leave my name and email addy?
I hate blogger. Hate it. I started out using blogger, but after I discovered the greatness that is wordpress, I left and never looked back. Blogger makes you jump through too many hoops just to leave a comment. That captcha crap? Who has time for that. WordPress will take away your spam problems, yo.
The other reason I don’t comment on your blog is because I don’t read it. I don’t read it because you only let me read the first three sentences in my google reader. I get that you want me to click the post to read to generate more traffic but, newsflash, I do most of my reading at work. I’m not trying to click on a bunch of blogs at the plantation. I like to be able to read the posts in their entirety and then leave a comment if I feel compelled.
Okay, I just wanted to get that off my chest. It’s so frustrating not being able to read/comment as I wish. I just wanted you to know why I don’t.
