The Power of the Comment

There are many important parts to a blog.  A blogger needs visuals, quality writing content, and readers.  One of the most important, if not the most, is comments.

Every blogger appreciates receiving comments.  It gives them a sense of satisfaction and lets them know that they are not talking to themselves.  It doesn’t matter to the blogger if the comment is positive or negative.  This type of content helps bloggers come up with content for the future and interact with their readers.

A true quality comment is not one sentence.  “Great story” or “Good job” doesn’t cut it.

Quality comments have thoughts, questions, or even answers that relate to the content of the blogs.  I encourage people to not be afraid to comment on various blog posts.  Their input, no matter how insignificant, can help the overall blog.

Three things to remember when commenting on blogs are…..

1.  Keep it concise, but not too short.

2.  Ask questions and comment on the blog post.

3.  Be courteous to the author and give the overall blog respect. (even if you don’t agree with the content)

    I enjoyed this post because your blogging guidelines and manners are similar to mine! I think it is so important to be courteous to other bloggers no matter what. And being concise–there is nothing worse than a blogger who goes all over the place and back again! Blog comments can be meaningful and can mean a lot to a blogger! Thanks for posting!

    I liked your comments post, I like how you said it doesn’t matter if the comment is negative or positive, as long as it’s a comment. The sense of satisfaction you touched on was also a good point, I’ve always learned how important it is to have a good sense of accomplishment, it increases confidence in your work ethic and yourself. It was also very insightful for you to list 3 things to remember when commenting on blogs. It is very important that one shows interest in other blogs with either a question or some other form of interaction with the blogger, and it’s definitely better than the “great post” feedback.
