And so it begins!

First, let me say that I really appreciate your comments. I've been wondering though, what is proper blog etiquette when responding to comments? Do I leave another comment on my blog, should I comment on the commenter's blog, or just send an email?

I got my first fill today, after 14 months. So far, so good. I really feel like I'm brand-new at this again, especially since the guidelines here are so different than in Korea. For example, according to my new doctor, I'm supposed to eat liquids/soft foods for 2 after my fill; yeah, that didn't happen. I just ate very carefully and very slowly, and everything was fine. I guess if I knew WHY I'm supposed to do all that I would be more inclined to, but until then, I'll do what works for me.

I just wanted to write a quick update about that. I'm exhausted. Good night!

So you found a doctor? Was it the first one who lost your records and cancelled your appointment or did you find a new one? As far as blog etiquette goes, I don't know! But I am thinking you respond on your own blog. I will look forward to the answers!

I always respond via email. I rarely go back to a blog to recheck comments.
Glad the fill is working for you.

I think the biggest reason for waiting after a fill is to let the swelling go down. My surgeon's guideline was always 24 hours. As for the responding to comments, through email is sufficient as many people don't come back to check later on. I would say that if it is something that could really help other maybe also address it in a future blog post.

Are your comments that we leave delivered to your inbox? If so, click reply in the email. I never go back to a blog post that I've already read. If you get someone that has "No Reply@blogger" as their email, it means they haven't set up their email. You can go to their blog and leave a comment if you want to, I usually don't though. I just don't comment back to people that don't have their blog setup to receive back email.

I'm like Cat...I never go back to a post I have alreay read, so when people reply to them directly on their blog I never see it. Sometimes I reply back via email (like Cat and Robyn), but sometimes I don't reply at all. I wish there was a "like" button like on
