How much of a blog do you read? Do you have a clear understanding of what the blogger tries to tell you before you comment? I get the impression that some people don’t always read the whole post before commenting, thus posting comments irrelevant to the blog/forum post.

No, It is not really important to me, It is just something that tickles me.

Yeah, it is important to you grin

And yes, I do.

Although i will still probably base my comment on the trigger words you place in there wink

I'm greatly relieved, I couldnt find a trace of the word "phrase". Which is fortunate because thats how the second world war started, some arsehole said "phrase".

If it is 20 pages of long winded nonsense, I usually just skim it. Should be about a 3-4 sentence limit for most post IMO.

I always do.
Sometimes the title has nothing or little to do with the main point of the blog.

Sometimes, too, I completely miss the point.

But I read the whole blog before I comment.

Catfoot: I get the impression that some people don’t always read the whole post before commenting

I was guilty of this only the other day. The blogger almost bit my head of, I think I must have caught him in a bad mood. It's not even like it was a very good blog, I thought I was doing him a favour by showing some interest. Some bloggers take themselves far too seriously, Catfoot, I'm sure you must have come across the type yourself.

i read the OP post, but after that it depends on the comments as to whether i read them all or not. if they run off topic, i am more likely to skip to the end.
but like i said, it depends...i read till it no longer holds my interest.

I haven't voted because 'It All Depends'

If it's a recent forum thread with fewer posts then yes, read all.

If it's an older or longer thread then no, I don;t have time to read it all, so generally comment on the Original Post

To me the most important thing is the first post by the OP. That usually tells me what the topic is about because I don't always have the time to sift through 20 pages you know. Life is short.laugh

some blogs end up going off topic and if you read them all, you will forget what it was actually about :)

I don't read all blogs.

The ones from people I know worth looking into I do read - and if it tickles my fancy, I'll drop in.

Hope the headache gets better, sounds like a great party Cat. wine

Blogs and forum posts are just like any other piece of writing. It depends on the skill of the writer. And it is all down to the first 2 or three sentances or paragraph. Does it grab attention, does it grip the reader? So important! It’s the same with music..especially pop.....if the first 20 seconds hasn’t captured your ears, we will cease listening.

So yes, long blog posts are ok so long as they are well written and grab attention. Then I will read to the end and get the full point. Otherwise I will skip it.

I don't usually comment on the blogs but I do read them sometimes. If you don't read all of it, just like the threads, you are not having full clarity of the question/comment.peace
