Blogs are usually the work of an individual or a group and tend to be about a single subject (WikiPedia). But how boring would it be if that was all they were? There wouldn’t be any of the fun that infinite networking on the internet allows! This is why Blog commenting is so important! Comments turn blogs into interactive wonderlands and awesome places to share ideas, interests, news, etc.
But how does one leave comments?
When writing blog comments it’s important to remember to be polite, to the point, and within the context of the post you’re commenting on. Almost all bloggers love to have their blogs commented on (speaking from experience and research) but not from people who are rude or inappropriate.
Here’s Amanda; her Serenity Now blog discusses 8 reasons why she likes to have people comment on her posts. Number 3 in her list says, “If you comment on my blog, you might get featured on my blog” . This is a perfect example of how one’s comment can expose their work to a whole new circle of traffic. With that in mind, make sure that you would be able to defend whatever you post on the internet because you are responsible for what you say.
