Blog Commenting

It has been considered as one of the effective ways of connecting with other people, along with social media activity and forum participation. Whenever you leave comments on other people’s blogs, you gain a certain amount of unrecorded reputation points. Even though those points aren’t really recorded, tallied on paper or whatever, they would still remember you because you’re the one who gives life to the posts and the conversations.

Whenever I try it out, there are times that I see some blogs with comments from people (or bots) that use keywords as their name. Some of the replies on that line are actually valuable to the post, but most of them usually fall on the spammy edge. By the way, I look for blogs by simply using this search term:

Your keyword here inurl:blog comments

spammy cliff
There are times that you're going to feel like the sheep that fell off.

Yes, you would usually see comments that would have just “nice post” or any variation (or maybe a spun variation of that; the longer one, that is) of that in the post. There could be times that they would tell you that they like it so much that they’ll recommend it to others, but they haven’t really given any reaction on the post per se. You know what’s frustrating here?

There are times that whenever you try to leave a comment on those blogs that have ONE accepted “nice post” comment, your comment won’t be accepted no matter how valuable to the conversation you think it is. Hello, pet peeve.

Anyway, enough negative reactions on that. Just remember that whenever you try to leave comments on blogs, do make sure that you know what you’re going to say. Just saying “thank you for the post” is not going to cut it.
