Top 7 Tips to Connect with Blog Comments

 

Do you want to kick your blogging up a notch? One key to successful blogging is listening.  When you listen by reading a blog post you need to treat that time as you would if you were sitting across the table from a prospective client.

To listen you need to make a commitment to unplug from your other tasks at hand. There's a lot of hearing that gets done online, but listening is in a class all its own.  If you truly listen you set yourself up for great connections and true business opportunities.  Add commenting to your blogging goals and try these commenting tips.  

Top 7 Tips to Connect with Comments

You mean we are expected to read these things and not just comment for points???? (JK of course!)

I only comment when I feel a need to agree or add to the post, some times it takes a lot of reading to find comment worthy posts...

Rebecca,

   I really appreciate you posting this. I've been studying other blogs to get a feel for what I think my blogging style will be.  I'll be saving this one as a reference.  Thank you.

Rebecca thanks for your post.  These are all very valid points.  Like Mama Liz, I hadn't really thought about the local blog connection.  I will definitely put this on my to do list.

Robert- Some posts do not engage the readers or rather encourage them to comment or ask questions I would agree with that.

Vickie- Thank you.  I regularly submit articles to Broker Agent Social.

Joe- I am really glad to hear that.  I originally published this post in May, but I have been pruning my blog and when I did so to this post, it republished to the top of my blog:)

Tammie- Excellent.  You can have a regular list of blog to do's and soon they do become routine.  I am always adding something to my list.

Rebecca--I am going to admit...I am a skimmer and have so many good blogs to read and comment on I don't always have time to read the whole thing unless it is especially intriguing. I will go check out your other tips now....I just skimmed before commenting. LOL

Teri,

Lol....there are so many good blogs to read that's true.  I try to set aside time just for commenting, that way I can pay attention to the whole post because it is a conversation and have you ever noticed that in a post the conversation can turn, just like in real life.  That is why it is also important to read the comments too.

Thanks again Rebecca.  I need to slow down a bit and absorb each post.  There are so many that I follow.  Thanks for the wake-up call.

I loved the idea of getting in touch with local bloggers. In fact, I just did a search, and realized there are not that many in my area.  Hmmm....does that present an opportunity or what? I also like the idea of "conversations" rather than "The Formal Post" where you sound like a news person. I think this should be fun, not stuffy!
