Whats the Big Deal About Commenting on a Blog

Posted on June 25, 2007. Filed under: blogging |

I’m really sorry, I’ve been a bit busy over the few days and I wasn’t really in the mood to blog. Today I’m going to discuss about “Whats the Big Deal about Commenting on a Blog”. As we all know that there are all sorts of bloggers out there. People blogs for variety of reasons. For fun, for sharing information, for venting out new thoughts, for meeting new peoples, blah blah.

A blog is not written just so as it can left there to rot or death. Aside from the fact that you want to share some relevant information with the other people, you also probably want to have more and more readers interested in what you have to say. People read your blogs. It is true but you cannot believe it. Days go by and you have no response. Then to track people down, you install counters, stat trackers and other available freeware out there. Now you know, people are actually reading your blog. But still, no response. Then finally, one day, you receive the email saying someone left a comment on your blog. You hurriedly go over and open to see who the other soul is. And??? Damn Spambots!

It is a fact of life that not all your readers will readily post a comment on your blog. Even if they find that it helped them a lot, not many can spare some time to put on a simple comment. This all happens all the time. You could either make your blog more interesting or have friends and other acquaintances make some comments to get the ball rolling

The most exciting part of any blogger’s life is – when someone leaves them a comment. Correct me if I am wrong.

Now, there are boring blogs that don’t encourage comments. I am not talking about those blogs. The blog that I am talking about is the blog that interest you. If you participate there, maybe, an increased percentage in posting comments may motivate the author to post more articles; you may be wondering how I said this. Read this famous proverb-

If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange these apples then you and I will still each have one apple. But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas “- George Bernard Shaw

So Commenting on blogs is a good way to get response and interaction with your readers. You can even make it a point wherein you actually try to listen to your readers and post articles connected to their requests. It’ll also inspire you in one way or another knowing that your opinions are heard. It is a way to express your feelings, thoughts and insights about a particular topic to motivate others. Comments also act as a source to improve blog articles.

Also read ‘The Secret of Commenting‘ Written by Desibaba, where he explains elaborately that he had benefited a lot from Commenting on the blog.

The thing about having a few comments on your blog is for your other readers to see that it is not dead and not being read. Nothing like a dead-looking blog to take the interest off potential readers who will stumble upon them.

Blog commenting also have the intent of gaining more relevant links to have in your site. It can be noted that like forums, leaving comments on blogs is a way of placing links which people can also go through. Blog commenting had long been a form of free advertising that businesses take advantage of. All that needs to be done is to find a blog that is interesting and is known for their readability.

Blog comments do have to be positive all the time. There are no rules that state that negative comments should not be put into blogs. This is because readers will not always agree on what you have to say. There will be those who need to voice out their opinions about your post. If this happens, do not feel put down. Accept negative comments as something to learn about. You can learn more from negative comments rather than positive ones.

Blog Commenting has also become a source of income for some people. For posts that needed all the publicity they could get, they pay other people just for commenting on their blogs. These are those who only make use of blogs to optimize their websites and gain more visitors to whatever it is they are marketing on their blogs.

Overall, people have realized the value of what blog commenting can do. In time, you will be able to see and reap the benefits that comments can do to your posts if ever you are intent on pursuing it early on. So guys If you like this post then leave a comment or if I have missed some point then please let me know.

Comments are very useful for the blogger because he will know any errors that he posted on his blog. Comments also motivates the person to continue blogging.

So as much as possible, whenever I visit a blog, I try to submit comments so that the blogger will know what I am thinking about his post. Comments also helps us bloggers to create an online community of bloggers.

@viyoma, you are truly right, it helps us in many ways. But always remember, if the topic is of his/her then only there’s a chances of getting comment.

@geomancer,I totally agree with you. It motivates the blogger for further posting and in building online community.
