5 Reasons You Need to Comment on Others’ Blogs

This week I read a nice article by Siraj Wahid on the value of leaving comments on other people’s blogs. He raises a lot of important points. Here are a few of my own:

  1. No one has time for blogging and writing – until you start to work it into your life, little by little. Leaving a comment gets you started.
  2. As I stated in a recent article I wrote for MarketingProfs, people consume information these days “hors d’oeuvre” style. In bits and pieces. Writing comments trains you to be concise, because that’s what the market wants.
  3. Commenting is like tweeting. And tweeting is like writing haiku: short and sweet, yet carefully crafted.  Over time, the bits and pieces add up in marketing value.
  4. Comment here and there, and you’ll find the juices will start to flow for a longer piece. A comment here and a comment there, and before you know it, you have an article.
  5. Everyone needs friends. Even the online, virtual ones. Leave positive and well thought-out comments, and you’ll make more of them.

  1. Couldn’t have been said better…like your illustration here, this whole business can seem overwhelming…I started small, with comments, and then a “practice” blog before I got to my blog at https://www.ZeldasSong.com (undergoing an upgrade as we speak). It did just work into my life, and got easier. Never did I think that would happen!
