I have to forward this to Vinny C of asvinnycsit because his comments always seem to remind me of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Not too funny, not too sentimental...but just right! In case you don't read his blog, I would suggest you do. There aren't that many blogs that manage to combine humor and honesty in perfect harmony the way he is able to do it, which is, again...just right.
The one requirement other than forwarding the award to your favorite commenter's is to answer the following question:
Do your witty answers pop instantly in your head when you read the post with an immediate urge to hit the comment button or do you have to sit and ponder?
For me, my comments pop immediately into my head as I read a post and the frequency of my comments are directly related to the quality of the posts. (The post is the fuel for the comment fire) I don't feel obligated to post a comment just for the sake of posting it. I do it because the post deserves to be commented on.
I'm guessing that's why I enjoy getting comments on my own posts, because naturally I assume everyone has the exact same thought processes I do. They do, don't they?
I have to admit that I do get a certain sense of satisfaction when a blogger responds to one of my comments. It's kind of like giving somebody some pot and they smoke a joint with you. Or, if you bring a friend a chocolate bar and they break off a piece to share with you. I use drugs and chocolate as examples to better illustrate my desire for bloggers to respond to comments whenever possible...I mean, come on...KICK already!
I love every comment I get and I respond to every one of them. It's easier for me than most since I don't really get that many.
And since I have been inspired by Nikki's generous award, I will start acknowledging them more regularly.
