Bloggers leaving comments on my blog

Yes, this is for all my fellow bloggers. I just wanted to let you know about something that is bothering me.

I take part in  a lot of blog hops and so I get a lot of comments like “New follower here blah blah blah”. I really appreciate you coming over and following me. I don’t mind so much that you are not reading my posts the first time you drop by. I hope that you are coming back around to actually read my post and leave a quality comment.

The thing that really irritates me is that you don’t even bother to check what post you are commenting on. I have received many follow comments on my giveaway posts. These posts are clearly titled with GIVEAWAY right in the name of the post. When I receive these follow comments on my giveaway posts I have to go through and delete them.

Right now, I have still been following back the owners of these comments and leaving a note on their blog that I have deleted their comments due to the fact that they are entering them on  a giveaway post. But from now on, I will just be deleting these comments. I will no longer follow you back or leave you a comment to let you know.

Please be aware of what post you are commenting on not only on my blog but on others as well. Unless you are actually entering the giveaway, do NOT comment on it!

Thank you and have a great weekend!

    I hear ya! It’s this reason that I am not doing a lot of hops anymore. B/c I was hoping to get REAL readers from them, and usually it just clogs up my commments. When I do a hop, I say I’m from the hop but I also try to leave a nice comment about the post that I’m reading! 🙂 Just b/c I know it feels good to know someone really read one of your posts! 🙂
