“Every time I receive an email from our blog notifying me that a new comment has just been left, I get so excited”.
Ayex Money of NG-Trends was quick to pour out his heart on the low comment issues he witnesses on his blog posts.
“I get a lot of views on posts, but very little comment, sometimes no comments at all” He told me as we chatted via BBM.
Finding out what you think, learning from your perspective, and hearing how much you appreciate what bloggers do is a real boost of energy and your comments inspire bloggers to continue providing their readers with news, fascinating content, and unique opportunities to be part of a thriving and united community.
Commenting on blogs is also about building community.
When you see several comments on a post, you know that people are being affected and are reaching out to others. When you see dozens of comments, well, that’s just incredible!
Commenting is a way for people to contribute to their blog community. For some people, commenting is a cathartic experience, for others, commenting is a way to share insight and to inspire others. Many people comment to say how much they valued a particular post or blog.
In a social world of networking where a certain percentage of readers for my articles comes from my Blackberry contacts (links disbursed via “Blackberry Broadcast”). I get to receive most of my comments on BBM. What happened to the Comment box included beneath every post/publication?
Each comment is a steppingstone to something more. It could be a conversation, a nugget of wisdom, or ideas for how to improve.
Many of your comments have resulted in improvements or additions to the blogs that you read, benefiting the entire readership and of course, making your experience consuming blogs more enjoyable and relevant to you.
I’ve witnessed situations where certain writers plead with readers or visitors to please comment their publications.
I’ve also heard that on average for every comment that is left on a blog post, at least a great number of people have read that respective article. That statistic is encouraging and reminds bloggers that their audience is made up of all kinds of different people who contribute to the success of a blog.
Participating on a blog or being a part of a blog community includes activities such as reading, commenting, sharing, or even posting your own blog post inspired by what you have just read. This kind of activity is referred to as social media, a medium that has skyrocketed in popularity much in part to the Web 2.0 movement.
Blogs can be about any number of purposes including a personal journal, a corporate communications channel, online media outlets, product reviewing services, or reflections on the state of the world. To be more even more specific, there are all sorts of blogs, bloggers, and readers out there. There is truly a blog for every person.
Stating an example, I’ve written for a lot of blogs in diverse sectors of the online community. I’ve even extended my writings to Print Media such as Magazines, Newsletters and even the daily Newspaper. These Various sectors are focused on relatively different fields. Some Blogs are More of Lifestyle, Others are of the Fashion World, a lot more blogs are of Music and Entertainment Gist, while a few take sport as an Add-On.
As these blogs happen to be online, it can be visited from anywhere, commented on, and consumed regardless of time of day, location, and even in some cases, language. Anyone can comment. I’ve seen comments from professional musicians, Writers, fans of Writings/Publications and a whole big community of the Online Blog Family.
All of these comments have worth and inspire literally thousands of people around the world.
The more a blogger hears from you, the better and stronger their community becomes both online and off-line.
On behalf of all the bloggers out there, I want to thank you for sharing your thoughts with us over the years and with your fellow readers
Fellow Readers and Online Visitors, I Implore you all to please always feel obliged to drop a comment and follow up. Your response(s) to Our Posts and Publications would definitely shape our services towards you. Be it Good or Bad, We all Learn everyday. Thank You.
