Bookish Banter: How often do you blog hop?

A little Bookish Banter to get us through.  Bookish Banter is a little bit of banter about our bookish thoughts as we have a friendly discussion over a nice cup of tea. 

How often do you blog hop?


1) Unnecessarily or tediously flitting from one blog to the next in order to leave comments that are repetitive in nature. 

2) Leaving quick comments on a large number of blogs for the purpose of raising awareness of the blog-hopper's own blog. 

3) Quickly perusing several different blogs that are currently dealing with a similar subject.

I try to blog hop daily. I usually do it when I get bored or when people comment on our posts. I go to the commenters blog, comment on theirs, and then go to everyone who commented on their post, and so on and so forth.

I actually really love blog hopping, it helps us find new blogs to follow, more books to read, and it also shows support to our fellow bloggers.
I know how excited we get whenever we get new comments and followers.

But if I'm not able to blog hop daily, I at the very least, visit the person who commented on our post and comment on one of their posts.

So keep commenting, and I will keep commenting back! 


I don't blog hop as much as I would like. I find it really hard to balance the blogging, the reviewing, the reading, the commenting, the reading blogs, and of course my work, housework, and my hubby.... oh don't forget about the cute adorable grandson Finn. So its really hard for me to find the time without failing in other areas of my life...

I do however think that blog hopping is very important in the blogging community and I try to find some time everyday. Even if its just visiting the blogs that have recently commented on mine. I have nice little emails sitting in my inbox to say hey someone commented. I can read their comment then visit their blog with a click. I also try once a day to get through a few on my blog lovin feeder and I comment on almost all that read. I know I love to get comments and followers... I try to do the same for others. Also it helps me meet some pretty awesome bloggers out there.

I am not really good at replying to comments on my blog and I am sorry for this. If I have time I would rather comment on other blogs and I really just don't ever know what to say in a reply to a comment. I guess if I see one that a reply comes to my head... I will for sure reply. I do read all my comments though. I luvs them!!!

How often do you find time to visit and comment? Is it important to you to receive comments? Do you prefer to comment on blogs or reply to comments on your blog?

Let's be friends and discuss!


  1. I try to set aside time to visit blogs every day. I follow a lot of blogs, so it can be hard, but I know how much time and effort we all put into our posts, so it's important to me to show that support and read and comment as much as I can!

  2. My habits are a lot like Ash's. First thing I do is visit those who have visited me. I will look through posts to make sure I can leave a "real comment". I had done the wrong TTT topic the other day. We were supposed to do re-reads, but I did March 27th's topic, books set outside the US. My first comment was about re-reading. =|

    I set aside an hour a night to blog hop and write thoughtful comments. There are a handful of blogs that are my go-tos as well. I love the bloggers, and like to show some support. I set aside 15 mins to check out Twitter too. The place is sort of a cesspool, that often makes me feel bad about myself, but I try to interact with bloggers I have relationships with. Show some love for their posts there.

  3. I try to blog hop every morning. I visit all my favorite blogs, then I scroll through Bloglovin’ and click any post that catches my interest. I try to comment back to everyone who comments on my blog, but sometimes I don’t know what to say to them if our book tastes don’t match up.

    Aj @ Read All The Things!
