An offhand comment at ProBlogger Event got me thinking.
In one session, it was mentioned that while page views and bloggers are going up, comments are going down. (My apologies, I need to re-listen to the entire conference, I’ve forgotten who said what now!)
At first I thought, “Oh, that’s a shame. I love getting comments.” -Don’t we all love comments?
Then I thought – what a great opportunity!
My immediate ideas were that commenting increases:
- visibility for my blog
- my relationship with the blog writer(s)
- happy feelings for the blogger who receives a comment
There’s really no reason not to comment! I just email myself blog posts if I’m on my phone, that way I’m sure to read them later when I’m on my laptop and can be assured commenting will work.
But now, a challenge! Go forth and comment on other blogs! Talk to the writer(s). Make them see a comment notification and get all warm and fuzzy.
Tell me how often you comment?
