Something that was explained at Bloggy Boot Camp was “how to get more comments“.
Now, I won’t lie and tell you that I don’t appreciate when a post resonates with a reader in a way that makes you feel the need to take time out of your busy life and leave a comment.
It thrills me to the little tips of my soul.
But I never write with that in mind.
There are places I write where I will use the tricks of the trade to encourage commenting, but I get asked to do that. It makes it part of my job.
This is my place. Never my job.
I used to be worried if my comments seemed down.
Not so much anymore.
I have better things to worry about.
So do you.
So I’m really not spazzed out when another blogger gets hundreds of comments and I only get one.
First off, I could never respond to everyone and I would feel terribly guilty.
Secondly, I only want you to comment if a post really matters to you.
C) That one comment matters just as much as the ninety-ninth. Maybe more.
If you’re not getting the comments on your blog you’d like, please don’t stress.
Remember why you stsarted writing in the first place.
I hope it wasn’t to get comments.
