This blog post by David North is a great reminder to all of us that we learn as much from reading a post as we do from thoughtful comments.

A Thoughtful Comment

A thoughtful comment to a blog post can be every bit as valuable as the blog post itself.  I was reminded of that today when I made a new, high quality contact as the result of a thoughtful comment I had made to someone else's blog post.

What Makes A Comment Thoughtful?

Ok, the flippant answer is "duh, thought!"  Well, that's the practical answer, too.  Reading the blog post, thinking about what it says, and thinking about what you have to say that will expand, magnify, clarify, reinforce, enhance, appreciate, etc. the content of the blog post, prepares you to make a thoughtful comment.

Cost / Benefit Of Thoughtfulness

It takes more time to be thoughtful, there's no question about that.  The payoff is much higher retention of what you read and understanding of how you can apply it to your benefit, and others recognizing that you have something valuable going on in your head, that they want to be connected to, when they read your thoughtfully written comments.  There's not really any meaningful reward for thoughtlessness, so why even bother with it at all?

I Dare You

Now you get to decide whether or not you dare comment on a blog post about thoughtful comments.  Are you going to take the easy way out, or give it your best shot?

Hi Carol - I'd rather come across as knowing what I'm talking about than to simply pop in a few words to get points from AR. Besides, we can learn so much from each other. Why wouldn't you want to read?
