Replying to comments on blog is a healthy way to build relationship and community around your blog. Timely reply and response can help gain trust. Like someone said “Satisfaction of one’s curiosity is one of the greatest sources of happiness in life”. That said getting alert when someone comments on your blog is important. Though you can get email alerts when someone comments, a text message alert on your phone can grab your attention when you are away from your work station. Interestingly a service called Notifo can do that.
