How do you respond to comments?
Over at Moth Heaven, Julia posted about responding to comments left on her blog. This brought me to a question. Is it better to respond directly on the blog or to e-mail the comment writer? I tend to respond in the comment section just as if I were a visitor to the blog. The thing is that I am not sure that people actually return to the comment section of an old entry to see if there was a response (I do). Once I turned my response to a comment into a regular blog entry, which I think makes it easier for other who might be interested in the answer to find it. Sending a private message to the comment writer is my least favorite option for that reason. What is preferable to you?
