They (don’t ask me who “they” are) say that to grow a blog you need to create a social environment around your blog.  This theoretically will make people want to come back and read your blog again and again.

I’m not going to discredit this theory, but at the same time it’s not the complete picture anymore then saying Myspace is one of the greatest web sites in the world because of the traffic it generates.   Beyond social aspects you also need good content.   Not all of us are good content providers, heck most of you probably hare my stuff.   That’s fine, no one is forcing to read it.   However commenting is part of the equation.

Every time someone leaves a comment on one of my blogs I do my best to reply within twenty four hours.   This shows that someone is reading their comments and takes an interest in them.   I take an interest in each and everyone of my readers, though some of them don’t care enough about me to actually leave a comment.

So have you left or replied to a comment today?

  1. Good point well made.

    Your blog is a social community to those who want to read what you have to say. Its rude to not participate in your own community. So i thought i would join and do as you ask. Lets see if you are good on your word!!

    Thanks.

  2. While I've too lazy to actually write anything of use on my blog – I will reply to comments. Though recently there has been a rash of spam – it's not obvious spam until you look at the URL they are stating as their homepage – been keeping me busy. That and having a child this year has pulled me away somewhat. The rest – laziness.

  4. Well you do yourself a diservice but you do keep your word.

    Oh and take it from me as a father, Kids will always keep you busy. Congratulations on taking the biggest step in Adulthood. Just try not to screw it up.

    Enjoy.

  5. I plan on soon trying to set aside a set block for writing so I can catch up and keep the blog filled with regular updates.
