Thanks for the Award

First I want to say thank you to the fabulous Nancy Thompson, Jeff O and Cassie Mae for giving me the Great Comments Award!  I greatly appreciate that.  I was actually feeling kind of badly lately because I know I haven't been checking in or commenting as much as I have in the past.  Lots going on, so I apologize for that. 


There don't appear to be any rules or provisions that go with this rule and a short trip around my usual blogging haunts reveals that everyone I might think to pass this along to has already received it. 

That said, most of you get far more comments than I do so I ask you which of your posts has gotten the most comments?  What topics seem to make for the most discussion?  The biggest response?  What's the best comment you've ever gotten?

  1. Yay! From three people! See, you're an awesome commenter. :)

    And whenever I participate in a blogfest or bloghop, I tend to get a ton of comments. But if it's just like a 'regular' post, whenever I talk about my critique partners, or querying, or just how insane I'm getting with all this writing stuff... I tend to get a few comments :)

  2. When I was big into blogging I would leave at least 50 comments a day....now I', down to about 5 a week lol!

  3. Congrats on being such a great commenter. It's true, you are. :)

    I tend to get my most comments on the days I post something funny -- usually a funny picture or a funny caption that makes people laugh or identify with the topic. My favorite comments are the ones that make me laugh too. :))

  4. Congrats on the great comments award, that's so nifty. :) My favorite comments are the ones I only get once in awhile, when I actually manage to say something that helps someone. :)

  5. congrats on the award. I'm still at a place where I get higher amounts of comments for sometimes fairly random posts. I think, apart from the occasional freak post, my high ones are currently at around 20 comments, with a more normal day 8 - 10

  6. Congrats on your award!
    I think the posts where I get most comments are the ones when I give tips on social media.

  8. Congrats! I like the idea of this award, though I find I often end up ditto-commenting because I arrive late at blog parties. I'd have to agree with DWei... More comments left, more comments received. :) Also, short, packed posts tend to receive more comments than long rambling ones.

  9. You so deserve it! I just hit my highest number of comments today, 54, on one post. The posts that always seem to get me the most comments and garner me the most followers are those for Alex Cavanaugh's Insecure Writer's Support Group. I think the fact that everyone has the same insecurities brings us all together.

  10. Thanks everyone, I've been slacking lately. So much going on! I think you all make excellent points. And I agree, the more you're out there commenting on other peoples' blogs, the more comments you get. (Now how to squeeze a few more hours into this darn day! :)
