Best Comments On Your Blogposts-What They Say About Your Writing Style

Sometimes when writers write, they are baring their souls to the readers. Other times, it's "strictly the facts, ma'am." 

Whatever it is, the comments that you get from your followers can make you belt out a laugh, create an "ahhh" moment, or make you stop and look at yourself in a totally different (and somewhat more objective) light. 

Comments are equally as important both for the writer of the post as well as those who come by to read another person's comments that can spark entirely new conversations. 

The people who comment from their own truth are the ones that touch me the most. One of my most recent made me laugh hysterically, but EVERY writer would love to hear this:

 

 

"You write with such passion and enthusiasm, I enjoy your posts so very much.

I think you could make a sandwich interesting."

 

Not only was I touched, but it was such a delightful way to give me a thumbs up about my writing style that it just made my day!

I don't know if commenters realize what an impact they can have on those of us in this social network, but it can lift someone up so easily, with words of encouragement or turn someone around who may be ready to throw in the towel, or just give them a laugh and a needed virtual pat on the back to get them through an arduous day. 

Never underestimate the power of your comment. 

Thank you to each and every one of my followers, but thank you, especially, Sheila Anderson

for giving me the impetus to write this post!

OK, Gayle. I think that this may be my obituary and I am frightened by it. Remember me always please.......

Love the end photo as well, the sandwich after a big family and friends dinner was glossed over, but could easily go for a day out on the lake. Nice post, I think comments are great when encouraging and wish more posts could get featured and more comments were written for all the posts every day.

Nice looking photo and post to go along with it Gayle. You should be proud of your fine work and to be featured on Labor day Way to go a big high five to you!

I am new to this, but completely agree. Well thought put comments make this worth doing. The folks that parrot what I said , while I appreciate the support, make it tricker to keep the dialogue going.

It is always nice to see that someone takes time to check your blog and leave the comment. I appreciate every comment. But some comments are really remarkable:)

Hope you enjoyed the Holiday Weekend Gayle. I am guessing someone that writes as well as you tends to spark more creative and sincere comments.  Mark

Haha...now the test..write a post about a sandwich :)

I do enjoy those positive comments. They always give you that little extra boost of confidence that you're writing something of value.

Cathy, I sent you a message about how to do that. Thanks for asking about something that I actually CAN explain!

Claude, I hope you did that!

Inna, some comments ARE really remarkable and can have a great spin-off as a result.

Wow, Mark Don McInnes, Associate Broker that was such a very nice compliment....I have just done a virtual curtsy in appreciation!

Karen, beautifully put. "Mindful of our words", I like that. 

Suzanne, I don't like sandwiches! Just shows that you have to be passionate about your subject matter!

I am starting to understand the worth of my comments with the new like system in place.  Logging in and seeing five or six people liked a comment of mine reaffirms that I was at least writing something worth reading.

I fear that my comments do not do justice for your blogs and your outstanding photographs. You are a pacesetter for community blogging.

Kristin, you have ALWAYS been consistently enthusiastic with your comments...don't sell yourself short.
