**Due to all the blogger problems this week my post has come back up but not any of your comments. I did not remove them, blogger did. Bummer.
Such a great response to my first question. Thanks everyone! I see that I feel pretty similar to most bloggers about the time they spend blogging. On to question #2.
Do you respond to all the comments you get and do you manage to visit all the bloggers that visit you?
Okay, I hope I am not breaking some major blogger etiquette if there is such a thing, but my answer is no. I don't. I used to be able to in the beginning as I only had a few comments here and there but now that my blog has grown a little I just don't have the time. Is this terrible? I hope I am not the only one. I just don't know how you could and still have time to shower and eat everyday.
What I do is to respond to anyone that asks me a question and whose comments are something I feel compelled to respond to. I try to visit new visitors and check out their blogs. I have a contact me button so someone could e-mail me if they want to. Of course I want to still have time to blog hop and visit those favorites that I drew me to blogging.
I want to maintain balance in blogging and not feel as if it is a chore. If I don't have time, I don't have time. I feel my main purpose is to continue to enjoy blogging as I do it as a hobby. Life is stressful enough and I don't want to add to it with my blog. Let me know how you feel about it.
