The Importance of Responding to Your Comments

I hope you realize by now the importance of responding to your comments. I make a habit of responding to each and every one of my comments and I think they really appreciate being acknowledged. Another great way of showing your appreciation is to go to their site and comment on what they are doing, and I don't mean "nice blog" or "something like check out my site". Remember in all that you do in life, be sincere and they will appreciate your time and efforts put forth.

This happens to work in your favor by leaving a comment on another blog, you are actually giving a backlink to your site. When others read the comments and click on your name it takes them to your profile (make sure your profile is enabled in blogger settings) and this will mean more traffic for your blog. We all want more traffic and this is a good place to start! If you are a new blogger this is a great way to get yourself recognized.

After leaving a comment on someone's blog, do you ever go back to that blog just to check if they responded to your comment? Sure you do, I do and if they don't respond, well I don't usually visit them too often.

Stop and think about it, if someone walked by you, smiled and said hi to you, wouldn't you respond to their friendliness and cheerfulness? Then a comment that someone took the time to write to you deserves the same treatment.

Gosh, after reading what I just wrote.........I don't want to come across like I'm trying to tell you what to do or anything, however it's for your own benefit. I must sound like a mother, you know what they say, "once a mother......always a mother".....hehehe

sincere says it all, Sherry - you've a wealth of information for us new bloggers :) Keep up your great work!

Sherry said...

Bob, Thanks so much for your visit and comment. I truly enjoy helping new bloggers, so come back and see me again.

I mostly talk about things I had problems with while setting up my blog for the first time. Implementing the different features that others had on their blogs was a challenge, so I'm trying to explain some of the simplest things to further the newbie along the road with their template, etc.

Hi Sherry,
I've come to your site a number of times and your posts have been helping me learn about AdSense and blogging in general. I appreciate the time you've spent in making the descriptions clear and lucid.

FYI - I was looking for a good way to place "bookmark" links at the bottom of my posts and saw that you use AddThis. This is a very nice service! I've put it on my sites. By the way, there is a new drop-down style widget that you can use to make it easier for your readers to add bookmarks, instead of the older popup method.
