I let the list grow and comment as I see them scroll by. It was much easier when the showing list was longer than the last 20.

Follow too many bloggers? Hmm -- haven't thought about it in that way specifically.
I try to comment on those who comment on my posts as well as those who I consider to be good writers or topics I find to be interesting. It's definitely not easy.
I have rarely un-followed someone. That said I follow less people than follow me.

I used to make an effort to rotate through my 'followed once a week. Unable to do so now. I read recent posts which are of people I follow. Easier to keep up with active people rather than find someone maybe has not posted in a couple of weeks. Mark
I only read/comment as time allows and primarily on the ones that interest me.
My priority is to comment on the blogs of everyone that has commented on my blog from the previous day. If there's any time left, I will scan through the others that I follow.
I look daily (or at least try to) at the blogs of the people I follow. I look at featured ones first, then ones I'm following, then everyone else. I only look at "Today's" posts though. Helps keep down on the amount to go through.
If someone follows me, I follow them back. I consider that appropriate, polite and expected behaviour.
If someone follows me, I reciprocate. I always subscribe to like minded people. I know I miss a lot of blogs because I have to SHOW MORE to see them, but I see them eventually.
I have quite a few followers, but you are right, we only have so much time each day. Make 30-50 comments a day with time permitting.

Great question Gary L. Waters, Broker Owner, Waters Realty of Brevard, LLC ....I read as many as I can ....There is no way to read them all or comment on them all ....I think I try and comment on the ones that are recent when I log on.
Gary, I follow a bunch of people and strive to comment on their posts. But, musr admit to not being diligent enough!
I reciprocate comments on my posts. I do not receive comments from every one every day so it is easy for me.
I follow people who write things I'm interested in. I'll unfollow bloggers when that changes.
Good Saturday morning Gary. I don't know whether we can follow enough people or not. I allow myself an hour a day to interact here on this platform. If their blog happens to be up when I'm here I make a comment
Well, you can not check everyone who you follow, I follow around 400 or more. I just check recent posts of those who I follow. Not everyone is posting daily:)
I periodically go though and see if the bloggers I am following are active, if not I unfollow them.
Gary - I have a very large list of bloggers that I follow.
Not everyone posts everyday. I just check out who commented on my blogs and then I return the favor.
Yes I follow way too many, and I do not attempt to visit all of them daily, but I try to get to them every once in a while.
Gary L. Waters, Broker Owner, Waters Realty of Brevard, LLC I do follow more than 1,000 members. Though not all of them post regularly. However, if they do, I do notice it.
It is practically impossible to read all the posts from them - however, good posts do catch my eyes.
If someone follows me --- I follow them.
I often check my list of followers and check the box to exclude people that I currently follow, if any are remaining, I follow them.
I just went through and weeded out my followers Gary L. Waters, Broker Owner, Waters Realty of Brevard, LLC. That is the ones I follow. I don't like to but some haven't posted in months...
I comment on posts that I can contribute to the conversation...
It is transparent. You focus on blogging.
I follow anyone who makes some sort of sense as my way of supporting their ways and causes. Making it more intimate is another subjective dynamic
I follow you consistently interests me. I comment on blogs as I surf topics I feel like researching on a given day. I only (and rarely have to) delete if someone turns out to be toxic or a one way street.
my list keeps growing....it's over 400 now....but I have 1,500 following me.... I don't follow everyone who follows me....
I try to stay on top of it. there are so many great people and blogs.
Many of the bloggers I follow no longer blog or have reduced their blogging. I keep them on the list.
I do not delete anyone and if they post and it is interesting I will acknowledge.
