Tuesday Tidbit #13- Be genuine in the comments!

Happy Tuesday every one! I hope you’re all having the best day possible!

Today’s Tidbit came about because of a lot of advice posts I’ve seen this past week, and some blogging experiences over the past few weeks. So many people have mentioned that the best way to grow your blog is to engage with other bloggers: like posts, leave comments, etc. I’ve also seen a couple people say that blog comments should be returned; if someone comments on my post, I should leave a comment on theirs.

While none of this is necessarily bad advice, I think it can lead to some bad comments. People can tell if you’re leaving a comment as a way to be seen, or as part of some checklist. And, as much as I appreciate blog traffic, it feels crummy when it seems like the only reason someone visits your blog is to fulfill part of their checklist list.

So if you’re looking to comment on another blog, for whatever reason, make sure you stay genuine about it. There’s a person behind the blog who’s taking their time and energy to read and respond to your comments, so make it seem like it’s more than just a check in your to-do list.


Thanks for reading!
