All About Comments & Commenting on Blogs

Comments are the lifeblood of many or most good blogs. Comments are what let’s a blogger know that their “voice” is being heard. Like any blogger, I love a good comment or really I love any comment. Even a bad comment can help a blogger out. But it all depends on how you use the comments.

Comments can:

-Let you know if there is something that your readers really like.

-Introduce you to potential readers and subscribers of your blog.

-Introduce you to new blogs.

-Let you know that your everyday readers are there and are paying attention.

-Encourage a healthy debate.

-Let you know if there is something offensive or something that your readers don’t like.

My best advice for comments and commenting is to Ask & Respond. Asking great questions in your post gives people something to comment about or to answer. Responding to others comments lets them know that you actually read the comments and that you took the time to write back. This is an excellent practice that I am just now getting into and I love when I hear back from blogs where I left comments.

So get out there today and comment, comment, comment! Help a blogger out and you will help yourself out in the process.

    I love a blog with good conversation in the comments.

    I try to respond to all comments I get, and it is nice when bloggers respond back.
