In Which I Explain My Break...

not mine

I know it's been quite a while since I last posted, and even then, it hasn't been a ton of variety in the posts. However, my last semester was ending and I had a ton of homework, papers, tests, projects, etc. to do. I'm finished for a little while now and I'm also home from my holiday visiting my brother.

I've been doing a lot of reading (and I'm still reading) so I hope to have some more reviews posted soon. Besides that, I want to make 2012 a good year for the blog. More posts, more variety, and hopefully some more giveaways for you. I posted a Review Policy/About Me at the top of the blog, and I hope to have a We Comment Back post up soon too...which is my long-running policy that if you comment on one of my posts, I will comment on one of yours. This doesn't count for giveaway posts though...I won't comment on your giveaway (unless it contains a review/interview as well OR I want to enter) but I'll try and comment on something else too. PLUS, if you comment on my blog for a giveaway...I might not comment back because those don't really count beyond "enter me" so much.

Again, this policy will go on a page so everyone can see it...but I thought I'd share it here for now in case you're reading this.

Anyway...I apologize for the lack of posts. Is there anything you would really like to see in the New Year on this blog? Do you think you will set up the Comment Back policy on YOUR blog too?

Talk soon- Lauren

I've stuck to a comment back policy myself, but don't have it posted. For blogfests like Road Trip Wednesday, I absolutely stick to it. I used to try and comment on every single participant's blog, but that got to be too much for RTWs.

In general I feel like if a person takes the time to comment on your blog the least you can do is return the favor. However, sometimes life gets in the way and I just don't have the time. I try to pay it forward as much as I can though. :-)

Megan: Oh, I understand how life gets in the way. I think people that get a ton of comments on things have a harder time as well. It's just something I've been doing and want to keep doing as much as I can in the future. I think it's only fair as well...though I know most blogs really don't comment back.

I always, always return back comments. That's probably the least I can do for someone who has taken the time to not only read my post, but comment on it, too.

Highlight the best reads of 2011, perhaps? :)

Have a great year end!

It is really nice to comment back...I think most bloggers appreciate it...especially newer bloggers...like me...lol...who crave comments like crazy!!!
