Before I forget I am doing my I Win You Win book borrow-away from Robin at Be Still and Know on Friday so come back and bring your friends and join me, The Bug, Linda at 2nd Cup, and Robin at Be Still and Know and try to win a chance to read the book Sisterchicks in Wooden Shoes. It is a fun book about a friendship that isn't dependent on proximity.
Now that I have been blogging for nearly a year and still haven't read my Blogger for Dummies book, I am still a little in the dark on the ins and outs of blogging. If you haven't guessed by now I am a fly by the seat of my pants kind of girl.
However my current question is probably not in this book because it has to do with blogger etiquette...Here goes:
When someone posts a comment to your blog are you supposed to respond in a comment on your blog or a comment on their blog?
I am afraid if I post to my blog they aren't going to know about it unless they come back...and quite frankly people I am lucky to get someone to look at my blog one time let alone come back. If I post to their blog which obviously will have nothing to do with their current post I'll seem a little loony...and I know that isn't a far stretch, but I'd like to keep all of that loony-ness a secret as long as possible. I am usually sneaky and comment on something that is relative to their blog and then sneak in a response to mine, but then I always worry that I am committing a faux pas. Kinda like wearing dark nylons with white shoes...not SO bad but someone will notice and think I am a tool.
I know that my comments are few and far between, but I am a chit chatter by nature and I like to answer back when someone says something to me. It seems like I am virtually ignoring them by not responding. Kind of like virtually yelling at someone when you type in all caps. Which drives me crazy by the way. Especially now that I am channelling a 21 year old girl with the news of my engagement...I would like to virtually squeal with all those kind souls congratulating me.
What do you think? What do you all do? Please leave me a comment and depending on your response maybe I'll comment back...

P.S. I'd also like to know how you draw a line through one of the words you type...I know I should really quit while I'm ahead.
