View Full Version : Do you comment on a comment?

If you have a short story published in an online publication(not a blog), and someone posts a nice comment about your story, do you respond to the comment?

Is it unprofessional to respond, or is it rude not to respond?

No response. Those comments can fall under the category of "reviews." However, I'm not following; how are the comments being recorded if not in a blog?

Oh, I see what you mean about following under the category of reviews. Thanks.

I'm not sure how they record the comments since it's not a blog, maybe it's the same format as a blog? But it's more of an online newsletter that includes articles and now fiction.

Here are a couple of examples of places that do this. Are they still considered blogs?



I just didn't want to clutter up the comments section since it isn't my site, you know?

If the commenter's email is listed, send them a nice message.

It is. I thought about that, too. Thanks. :)
