Our whole Active Rain schedule got blitzed yesterday thanks to one post from Thursday: The Buyer Paid HOW Much??
We had a double promotion for this post, first a Feature (and for whatever reason, it stuck at the top of the Featured Blog for about 1/2 a day....I think the staff was down in New Orleans or on a plane and ours must have been the last pick before getting occupied), so we were getting lots of comments and what for us is a ton of reblogs (8 so far).
Then the post was the Title Post for the Active Rain Daily Drop e-newsletter...and THEN it REALLY got busy!! We're flirting with 200 comments so far, and check the screen shot...our first post over 2000 views. Now we attracted a couple of rude consumer commenters, one we left up (#124), another was so profane we did a delete (and we don't do that lightly), but nice to see the consumers are out there and reading!
We make a point of responding to EVERY commenter, and going over to thank every person that reblogs, and obviously this can be time consuming if you hit the commenting jackpot. This post resonated with the readers, some of our featured posts don't get us much in the way of extra comments...but this one was a whole new story! So much for any planned additional posts for yesterday!
So if you ever doubted just how quickly Active Rain can launch a post into orbit, don't doubt it any longer!
Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
