Blogging is not just about saying your piece, it is also about going out and joining the conversation where it is happening. It’s about reaching out to people and exposing yourself (steady!) to new ideas. Some giving as well as all this taking back we focus on.
It’s the right thing to do – people complain about not enough comments on their own blog but don’t take enough time to comment on others.
Make friends and influence people – Blogging is partly a networking activity.
Create Commentable Content – By observing which posts you commented on and which you did not (or couldn’t no matter how hard you tried!) you develop an awareness of what works to attract comments.
Comments = Ideas – You managed to comment. You never know who is reading – You never know unless you try.
Keep Match Fit – Comments should be short, fast, to the point and make an impact.
