I thought this was a cute title from David Snell... It is fun to go back and find what readers and writers have said about your comments either from their blog or other comments. I know not everyone has time to respond to 100 comments but a few a day should be doable. I believe the more comments you get and the more you respond, more people are going to continue to comment just so they get acknowledged too. It's fun and pumps you up for the day knowing someone said, even a simple, "Thanks for the comment! I appreciate it! " (Cause I really really do! ;-) ) Please leave comments on David's post if you want to comment on this. Let's see.... can I say "comment" any more in this short re-blog? LOL!
Why Won't You Respond to My Response on Your Comment About My Comment?
Seems a bit redundant I know. And there is only so much one can do. But I love getting comments and I love responding. I even go back to those I have commented on to see if they have responded back. I know I can't be the only one.
Why do we do this? Because are human and we want attention. It's as simple as that. We love it when someone notices us in any capacity and has taken the time to comment. Even though I got a lot of comments on my recent blogs about mold inspections, I still want to take the time to respond to each one. I think there comes a time though (maybe after 100 comments?) where one must move on. The discussion could go on forever. There are almost 200,000 people on AR and only 100 comments, some repetitive, is a small percentage.
But I like it when someone takes the time to not only comment on my blog but on my comment as well. If you are a frequent writer on AR you know that commenting is what promotes more Google Juice. Google loves the debate and continually ranks the blog with higher authority the more content and back and forth comments there are.
I want to provide the same customer service and courtesy to those commenting on my blogs as I hope to get from others. I understand if you are featured there may be 30 comments between times you view the blog and this can be hard to continually keep up with, especially if you want to keep your full time job. But some blogs with only 5 comments from other people, never get an acknowledgment that they even said something from the writer of the blog.
So, why are you blogging? For Google Juice? For promoting your business or website? For questions and answers? For engaging dialog? Probably a little bit of everything. In my opinion, to do this well, one must respond to their commenter's. This not only makes them feel good about being acknowledged but promotes more subscribers, more commenter's and more dialog. If I see a post from someone that has 20 comments and not one response from the writer, I may read the blog but not comment unless it's to one of the commenter's themselves. Even then, going back and seeing if you got a response takes time in of itself.
If you are in this for the long haul, which I am, I want to provide my readers with stimulating conversations, sometimes controversial discussions and a lively debate. After all, we humans thrive on attention and admiration.
Happy Holidays to you all from Snell Experts - Your Mold, Water and Fire Damage Experts
