Just a little note about comments.....

I have had a situation come up that really floored me. I had someone ask why sometimes I only leave a one word comment when I comment on their creations. They said it was like an insult.
Just know that I never, never mean to hurt anyone's feelings or insult them.
I spend between 2 and 3 hours most days commenting on blogs. Yes, I really do. I think I have close to 500 or more blogs in my google reader.
Therefore, I want to let people know that I have looked at their wonderful creations, but I just can't take the time to write a paragraph at each blog. Some days I don't even get to leave comments.
I truly enjoy looking at all the creations and inspiration out there in blogland and I know I love receiving comments so I try to return the favor.
Anyhoo, just thought I'd clarify why sometimes you might just get a one word comment from me and other days none at all....but yet other days if I have the time, I might write more.
Nothing was ever meant to be an insult!

Me too! One word is enough to know you were there and that is enough. I don't look at it as insult at all. Commenting on all these wonderful blogs takes a lot of time...time we could be stamping LOL! Thanks for all your comments on my blog...they are certainly appreciated.

Harriet Skelly said...

I always appreciate your comments Danni - I can't believe anyone would be insulted - at least you let them know you were there and looking. Oh well - hang in there!

Kris said...

Oh Danni! i'm sorry that person felt that way... but it is hard to write a whole lot on more than one blog... i appreciate you coming on my blog and leaving your sweet comments when you have time... even if it's one word... or even if none at all, it doesn't mean you might have not stopped by... Have a wonderful day girl! hugs, Kris

Karen Motz said...

I just want to say that I appreciate EVERY comment on my blog, be it one word, one sentence or one paragraph. Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a few letters that combine to make me smile! :)

Michelle said...

Oh, I don't agree with that at all. One kind word is blessing and lets the person know you've taken the time to stop by and look at their creation. Thank you for every time you've stopped by my blog and left an encouraging word. :)

Chrisd said...

I agree... even just saying hi is enough to show you cared.Hugs from Michigan

Jenn said...

Danni,
You can't please everyone. I'm just grateful that people stop by my blog and let me know :-) I truly appreciate the comments that you leave on my blog

StampOwl said...

wow why would someone say something like that .... I think she is the one that has insulted someone not you. Any comment you or anyone else ever gives me is always appreciated.

I always appreciate your comment. If you are willing to dedicate your time to visit one's blog, why would that be an insult?? Sigh.....
Sending you a big hug!

Pam Varnell said...

Oh wow Danni, I am so sorry. Your kind word/words are always appreciated!!! Big hugs coming your way.

Christine said...

I love ALL your comments!!!

craft_princess said...

Oh dear...I'm sorry to hear that you even had to deal with something like this! I personally LOVE every comment I receive...even if it would be just one word! I agree with everyone else...if you take the time to atleast visit that is good enough for me!! :) By the way...I know what you mean about it taking a long time to visit everyone...I spend atleast a few hours everyday commenting also!! Sometimes neglecting other things that need done but I comment whenever I can and if I run out of time that day then I just try to catch up the next! :)
Big Hugs!

Ditto'ing Karen M!...WELL SAID! {{hugs Danni}}

CLHAJNAL said...

Don't let it throw you off. You never know what kind of appreciation is enough. It's not something you can worry about. Maybe just on that day, this person needed a few more words. I do have to admit, it feels great getting comments from such talented people. I don't blame her for wanting more.....but I DO understand when you can't give more.

Big Hugs!!!!

Jean Addis said...

I'm always thrilled by getting ANY comments on my blog no matter the length. You're such a sweetheart to take all that time out of your busy day. I thank you for all your comments...they always make my day.

Cindy Haffner said...

I hear you Danni, I'm the same way, I wish I had more time to write more in my comments, but there is only so many hours in a day. --I love your comments long or short. Hugs Cindy XXOO

Mae said...

Danni...I for one love comments. One word or 1000. I am thankful & grateful you take the time to look. No comment is ever an insult to me so don't let anyone make you think that you are. Some are more sensitive I guess.

Lorie said...

Oh. My. Word...seriously! That person is very ungrateful! I just love that you visit and leave a comment on my blog...thank you so much for all the time you spend commenting on blogs!

Shelly said...

I love to receive any comments. I never thought to count the words. I too leave one word comments when that is all I have time to do. I'm sorry this came up for you to deal with, Danni. You're such a sweetheart. You're the last person who deserves criticism like that.

Anita said...

Wow! I am in awe that you take that much time to comment. I may not stop by often to say anything but love seeing your creations.

Leigh said...

I'm the same Danni. I'm up to 300 blogs and there is sometimes only time to say 'gorgeous' or 'stunning'. I think it's wonderful when someone comments and I certainly don't think one word comments are an insult. As a previous commenter has said, one word or 1000, it means that someone has looked and that is fantastic.

Maria Matter said...

I'm just honored that you even look at my creations! lol
I always feel the love in your comments Danni! You just keep doing what you do!!!!
Hugs & Blessings, Maria

MarieL said...

Well Danni, I haven't left any comments in a long time but I hope you know that I see your blog every day and sometimes more than once. I think everybodies comment today will reassure you...we are with you.

Thanks for all you do.....

Hugs....Marie

Dragonlady said...

Well Danni I must agree with everyone elses comments. I love to receive any comment which tells me that someone has visited and taken a look. I miss out commenting sometimes because I just don't get enough time. I hate to be selective but that's life.
One word can mean so much!

Lilacanglia said...

One Word,
Can mean so much,
and should be enough for the recipient to be grateful you have called and took the time to leave a comment,
I am another blogger that doesn't type a life history when hopping and commenting,
Hugs
Angie

Anne said...

Blimey Danni! I'm always so impressed that you get to comment as much as you do and a comment means a lot to me. Doesn't have to be long or short, I just love it that someone has taken the time to look at my project and then to add a comment, instead of just moving on without saying something!

I'm sorry you were misinterpreted by a blogger, but please don't let it spoil your day
Hugs
Anne
PS Going to leave some short comments now, hee hee

Annie said...

Hi Danni! I am happy with just one word from you - or non at all. Just knowing you stop by from time to time and then sometimes leave me a comment is enough. At the end of the day, we all have lives to live and also crafts to make or we'd have nothing to share with each other. The blogging I'm afraid is further down my list of priorities which is why I've not stopped by for a couple of days!
hugs, annie x

Mary said...

I agree. I enjoy looking at everyone's blogs. But sometimes I leave just a quick comment to show that I had taken the time to look. I had never thought of it as being an insult before.

Gwen said...

Are you kidding me! some people are just so ungrateful! please don't waste any more of your precious time dwelling on what just one person has to say! in my opinion...any comment is better then no comment!!! big huggs!! :)

kc_froglady said...

One word is more than enough sometimes :) I agree with as much looking as I do I often don't even get to leave a comment - if I did I would never create anything LOL! So you just keep on what you are doing and if you have time fine and if not NO GUILT about it ok :) And I sure don't expect it so when you do it is a nice thing. Many hugs Danni - keep your smile on :)

Vicki (basement stamper) said...

Oh hun...I'm so sorry someone had said something!! Please know that you have NEVER offended me in ANY way ever!! Even if I don't get a comment at all...I do realize that we all have lives and can't spend every waking minute on our computers!! If that were the case, I'd NEVER get anything done!! Just knowing that you stop by to check out my blog is more than enough for me to appreciate you!! That's why we all do this, so don't be worried about leaving me a book when you stop by...or anything at all for that matter!! :) HUGS

dolcreations said...

Oh my goodness...I am just in awh when someone even comes to my blog let alone leaves a comment! Danni...this little hobby is suppose to be fun...so just keep doing what ever you enjoy and have FUN doing it!
Christine

Susana M said...

Hi Danni
I think with the busy lives everyone leads one word says as much as many. The fact that you took the time with all those blogs out there says enough :o)
Hearts and Hugs
Susana

PBrown9624 said...

Don't let it get to you Danni! I appreciate the fact that you even take the time to look at my blog and leave me a quick comment. It really brightens my day. Some people are just never happy!

tasha said...

You know Danni I very rarely even leave a comment on anyone's creations. I don't have any where near fifty blogs I visit and never do I get to them daily. But your post which was past on from a friend left me the need for more then my two cents. I am sorry this person has tried to make you feel bad they really had no right to at all.

Tammi said...

Hugs sweetie, I certainly know how it is trying to comment on everyone's blogs, and your one of the sweetest ones out there...one word is fine with me, and please don't feel you have to comment on all my cards, I certainly don't expect you too. :) x

KathyJ (Wattle) said...

That is sad Danni :( I appreciate every single comment that is left on my blog no matter how long or short it is, at least I know they have dropped by - and always try and return the favour by commenting on theirs. {{{hugs}}}

Rose said...

well you never hurt my feelings by leaving only one word!! i dont have time to view all the blogs i want let alone leave a long comment so dont worry that one is upset most totaly understand!! :0) personaly i dont create and post cards to "get" comments as my husbands comments are the only one that truely matter to me :0)

Stef H (Glitterbabe) said...

well you certainly don't insult me with just one word. lots of times one word says it all - and very well i might add.

some people.....

hugs,

Risa said...

I don't feel insulted either Danni! I appreciate you stopping by and I realize that it is impossible to leave a detailed comment on everyone's blog.
Have a great day!
hugs
Risa:)

Lynette said...

Some people are just never satisfied! I love it when you leave me a comment - one word or more - because it lets me know you were there. Thanks so much!!

Nikki said...

NAH!!




it's not an insult lol
Hugs Nikki

Nicola said...

I appreciate all comments no matter how many or few words, it is just so nice to know that peeps take their special time out to view my creations. You are a star Danni, I do know how many blogs you visit sweetie so put this behind you and know we all love you.
Hugs,
Nicola -x-

Christy Croll said...

Every word you leave is special...never you fear. :) Ignore that negativity and keep spreading your love...even one word at a time.
XOXOXO
Christy

KarenB said...

Gosh I would be thrilled with a one-word comment on my creations, LOL! Good on you for taking the time to comment when you can. There's only so many hours in the day and it's so nice that you take the time to let people know you popped in.
