Follow these tips for smart blog commenting.
1: Invest in a Resource
I wrote an eBook for you to do blog commenting right:
Buy it, to have a guide handy when you are tempted to spam someone or not post a comment at all. My eBook gives you guidance but also reminds you NOT to overlook commenting, if you comment genuinely. Be warm, engaging and invest in a resource to comment intelligently.
2: Share Genuine Thoughts
Even if my comments span 2-3 sentences I make a specific point related to the blog post itself. This is the easiest way to make an impact. Prove to fellow bloggers that you care, and listen, and read their content. Be mindful. Prove your mindfulness. Be a generous, genuine blog commentor by sharing at least a few sentences noting some specific point in the post. You have only a few seconds to make an impact. Make those seconds count.
3: Personalize Comments
Mentioning someone’s name and dropping your name are such easy ways to blog comment effectively. You and I love it when people use our names; most important word, in our native tongue. Address fellow bloggers by name to stand out from the less mindful, hurried crowd. Sign off with your name to add a punch to your presentation. Be present, and personalized in your approach, to make a blog commenting impact.
4: Follow Comment Legends
Donna Merrill has been genuinely commenting on blogs for years. She clues you in to what mindful, authentic blog commenting can do for your blog and business over the long term. Sometimes, if I get a little lazy with commenting, pros like Enstine Muki keep me on the straight and narrow, giving me a little nudge, to keep the engagement train going through commenting. Follow Donna and Enstine to gain inspiration from their loving, generous examples.
Blog Commenting Is Simple
Imagine making friends by sharing your thoughts? This is the essence of genuine blog commenting. Why not comment, if you are sharing your thoughts all day long, anyway? Be social and warm. Express a genuine interest in fellow bloggers. Blog commenting is a fun way to make friends and grow your business if you take the intelligent route so….take it!
