Comment or blog?

If you’re reading someone’s blog and you would like to comment on it, you have the choice to add a comment on it, or write a blog entry at your own blog with a reference (link) to the blog your are commenting.

I wonder which one is the best approach. If you comment to an existing blog, you probably lose track of all your own contributions leaving your own blog empty, or you have to repeat yourself in your own blog. If you comment in your own blog however, the comment is probably not read by the writer of the article.

So, I tend to have a slight preference to write your own blog entry and put a link to it in the comment of the other blog. It would even be nicer to have a “link” that works by value instead of by reference.

About Frank Schophuizen (fschop)

Hi, my name is Frank Schophuizen and I am working as a consultant in CM, Agile and ALM for TOPIC Embedded Systems. I have over 30 years experience in software development in the technology industry, with the last 15 years mainly in process improvement, deployment and integration of methods and tools in the area of CM, Agile development and ALM. I am strongly interested in the complexities of collaboration and integrations in multi-project and multi-site organizations. I have worked with various technology companies such as Philips, ASML, NXP and Vanderlande, and with various tool vendors such as IBM Rational (e.g. ClearCase, Synergy, Jazz products) as well as open source tools (e.g. SVN, Git, Jenkins, Trac, Eclipse). I am living in Eindhoven, the Netherlands, with my wife. We have 3 adult children. My main hobbies are classical music and photography.
