That is the question.
In looking at Google Blogs Search to see if anyone had linked to me (c'mon, you do it, too!) I saw Lori at she treads softly post about time enough: "There is simply not time enough in my day to do it all."
When it comes to blogs (and reading blogs and commenting (or not)) and other social media, there is no real rules. Seriously.
I'm glad you're reading this blog. Thank you for taking your time to read this, whether it's here at the blog or by a reader like Bloglines or Google Reader or via email. There's no need to comment, unless that's what you want to do. If you do, great! But if you don't -- I understand. Because, like you, time. I read blogs, and sometimes I click from Bloglines to the actual post, and sometimes I go to the actual post, and sometimes I comment, and sometimes I don't. And that's just how it is. Whether or not I keep reading your blogs have nothing to do with whether you comment on mine; it's whether or not I like what you write.
Some people feel differently. Which is cool. But guess what? There is no "rule", no "must", no "has to" about who is right and who is wrong about comments.
If you're reading this and agree? Or disagree? No need to comment.
P.S. BTW, when I read via Bloglines I miss things about templates. Lori has Updike's Rules for Reviewing on her sidebar, which is made of awesome.
