Oh! It is rare that Friday Five post comes in actually on Friday (at least for me).

Yeah, in order to get the Friday Five to arrive on Friday for the other hemisphere from me, I have to post it on (my) Thursday night. :)

I am not complaining (too much), just I am often away from computer over weekend.

My answers:

1. Do you like to reply to every comment in your journal?
Yes I do, I usually get the emails letting my know there's a comment and I like to respond as that's what I like about Lj. It's nice to 'converse' with people all over the world.

I actually don't really understand why people don't reply to comments, and if they don't on their journal I will stop commenting on their journal after a while. If you came to Lj I'd expect you'd want to comment on some posts (not necessarily all, of course!), otherwise you might as well keep all entries private and just treat it as a journal. I got quite frustrated when people moved to Dreamwidth and kept cross posting entries, but disabled comments, or said to only comment there. It was obvious they didn't read Lj any more and it felt really one sided and rather ecocentric ("follow me - talk to ME even though I'm going to cut you out of my journal life"). Meh - I'm over it, but at the time it was hurtful.

2. What type of post gets the most/least responses in your journal?
Most responses seem to be if I post a photo of something - so my cats or some of the things I've made in stained glass. I suppose people notice the photo. I do find that most people respond at the weekends but that's because most people are very busy!

3. What do you do when a new person first comments in your journal?
I hope I'm welcoming. I probably won't friend someone back unless we've had a few 'conversations' on my journal first.

4. When you're reading someone else's journal, do you read every comment before adding your own?
Not usually - I like to try and give my own reply to someone. The exception would be if someone is asking for advice, I probably will read the other comments so that the person doesn't get the same type of comment over and over again, and it's sometimes nice to agree with what someone else has said instead.

5. When is "too late" to reply to an entry?
I don't think it is, I'd rather admit I've not had the chance to reply if it seems late - I'm sure people appreciate it. If someone posts a few times such as holiday photos I might just comment on the last entry instead of every post. It depends how busy I am (and I'm sure that's the same for all of us). I quite like the little 'heart' if I'm in a rush as I can 'love' the post even if I don't have time to comment.

That was fun.

1. Do you like to reply to every comment in your journal? I try to. Sometimes I can't… but for the most part I think I get most of them :) Hard to think of a witty reply to a smiley (though I like getting them!) Also, on the occasion when one reader is replying to another, I may not answer the latter if it's clear I'm not needed to.

2. What type of post gets the most/least responses in your journal? Questions about the sort of things that everyone can have an opinion on - words and language, customs of other countries, definitely food. Oh, and icon posts, even old ones.

3. What do you do when a new person first comments in your journal? Umm, reply or at least say thanks?

4. When you're reading someone else's journal, do you read every comment before adding your own? Depends on what I'm commenting on - sometimes it's a good idea if I suspect that I'm going to be repeating what most of the others have said, so I can find a different way to say "me seventhly!" or whatever.

5. When is "too late" to reply to an entry? Depends on the post - stories, icons, pics and music and happy thoughts… never. General my-life-and-welcome-to-it, probably the point where I can't even recall whatever it was I was talking about is a tad late, but I have no problem if someone does...

"Oh, and icon posts, even old ones."

I'm not at all surprised you get lots of responses to them.
