Blog Posts is about you, Blog Comments Are Not

Blogging to me is similar to communicating in a small group discussion. The group discusses one topic or issue while others listen attentively. Then, other group members voice their thoughts, ideas, and feelings on the topic giving everyone feedback on the issue.  Blogging works the same way on a bigger level of course. One person blogs about various topics hoping to receive feedback from other people, which are comments.  Every blogger has a purpose-  to put their ideas out in the “social media” world so that others can view them, bringing in traffic to their blog posts. However, even though blog posts are vital in the social media world, so is becoming part of blogging which is to comment on others.  This “rule of thumb” is similar to my other post discussing paying it forward.

Blog posts express a person’s individuality and to set them apart from every other blogger, but blog comments are not about that. Blog comments are vital and are part of the blogging world.  Every blogger need to have an open mind and comment on other peoples blogs, whether it’s on twitter discussing the issue or on the blog website. Comments allow a blogger to think outside their own box and receive feedback to help improve their blogging skills. Isn’t that what every blogger want ( to become more knowledgeable on each blog post and to receive more traffic each time?  Of course YES!! In order to do that,  a blogger has to help someone else out by putting themselves out into the blogging and social media world.

Here’s a recap of answering the question “so why should I take time to comment on other people’s blogs?”

  1. Commenting on other blog posts gives you readership to YOUR blog posts. If you comment on other blog posts, the same domino effect will happen to you.
  2. It’sabout respecting  others and not being selfish. It’s not just about you and your blog posts.  Blog comments just like blog posts expresses that you just don’t post your blog, you become an active blogger.
  3. Blog comments can give you (the blogger) ideas for other creative blog posts that people might want to read or discussed.
  4. Blog comments shows that you aren’t afraid of interacting with other people in the social media world and are able to become well-rounded in discussing various topics.
