Blog commenting is a vital part of blogging in many different ways.
Blog commenting not only gets traffic back to your blog, it also gets you noticed in the blogging community because you are actively networking with other people.
Networking with others it really where it is at in blogging. I think it is the main reason for blogging. As I said in my post on “Is Blogging A Business?“, blogging is not really a business. Blogging is more like a billboard where we advertise ourselves or our business.
The better we are at advertising ourselves the more traffic we will drive to our actual business, whatever that may be.
I think your ability to blog comment and how you blog comment definitely affects how well your billboard or blog stands out.
I Am Not A Good Example Right Now
In the recent past I have not been a great blog commenter so I am not a very good example of a person who is doing this well at the moment.
Recently I have had so much going on off line that I have found it very difficult to get much done on my blog. I have made an attempt to write a post every week but have even failed at that the past two weeks.
A couple of weeks ago I found out that my 25 year old son has a malignat brain tumor so I just did not feel like writing anything for a while. We are figuring out what to do about it and I am sure he will make it through this so I am back again.
During all of this time that I have not been able to get much done myself I have had several very loyal commenters. These people are definitely people you want to be following because they are doing what I wish I could even though I am not commenting back.
I would definitely purchase what these people have to sell as they are not just commenting on blogs that comment on theirs. They have commented on my blog thoughout this time when I have not been commenting and definitely stand out in my mind in the blogging community.
Loyal Blog Commenters
Adrienne is a master at networking. Her people skills are fenominal. I have always admired what she is able to accomplish with her blog.
Adrienne and I met doing the same course a number of years ago. We kind of started at the same point but Adrienne has taken her blogging to levels I only dream of.
Max is a person I met on line several months back. Max is a blind blogger. This in itself amazes me. I struggle to blog well and I can see. Max does it blind.
Max is also in a very difficult niche. He sells carnival rides. I love reading his posts as I always find out something new.
Through all of these very difficult situations Max has made himself and his blog a valuable asset to the blogging community.
I said above that I would definitely buy what my loyal blogger were selling but I don’t think I am in the market for a carnival ride right now. Max is definitely a blogger to follow and watch what he is doing.
Jeevan is also a blogger I met blogging some time ago. His blog is full of hints and tips about blogging. I have found many great tidbits of information here.
Ashley has a blog that gives advice on all sorts of blogging issues. He has great information on his blog that is well worth taking the time to look at.
Ashley also does podcasts and has recently done a podcast about Max Ivey which is quite interesting.
Prakash has a blog about all sorts of android apps that you can download.
Ashvini’s blog is about building a business. He is also the developer of ShareJuicePro which you have heard me talk about in some of my posts. It is a great piece of software that is well worth checking out.
Why These Bloggers Standout
I have not had many comments on my blog recently since I have not been able to get many comments made on other peoples blogs but, these bloggers have faithfully come and commented on most all of my posts.
I was so amazed when they just kept coming back. I have shared some of why I have not been able to be online as much but most people have just stopped coming by. I really do not blame them. I might have done the same thing.
These bloggers have done what others don’t though and in doing that they stand out from the crowd.
If you want to make it in a very competative situation like marketing online you have to do something that makes you stand out from the crowd. It does not have to be commenting on a post where the bloggers is not commenting on yours but it does have to be something others will not do.
My hat goes off to these bloggers. I want to thank each one of them for coming and commenting at my blog when I was not commenting on theirs.
What about you?
Do you stand out from the crowd? What is it you do that others do not do?
Leave me a comment and let me know what you think or say “Hi”. I really do miss all of my blogging buddies and am really trying to get back to commenting on a regular basis.
If you find this post interesting or useful could you please share it with your friends. Thank you.
