Here's another informal survey but this one is open to anyone.
When someone comments on your blog, what is the proper protocol for responding? Is it:
1. Respond to the comment in your own comment section.
2. Go to the person's blog you are responding to and leave the response in their comments.
I have done both of these things on different occasions (not both for the same response) but it has always been floating around in my brain that maybe I am "doing it wrong." It seems like if you respond in your own comments, the person may never see the reply, but if you respond in theirs, it is kind of out of place. Just wondering what the masses do;-)
