Blog Comments: Good Practices

Blog Comments: Good Practices

Hey guys, I am back with another blog and this one is about blogging comments and what you guys can do as readers in order to help bloggers out when it comes to making improvements and realising what content their readers enjoy the most. I will go on to discuss what comments on blogs can do for the blogger and discuss what things you can do in order to shape and construct the perfect comments for the bloggers who you take an interest in and spend time reading their posts. Let’s get right into the blog.

The first thing to always make sure of when you comment is to actually give proper feedback. Saying “great post” or “I loved this post” may seem like a big compliment to any reader but in actual fact, it doesn’t help a blogger in any way, shape or form. Always say why you loved the blog or why you didn’t feel as interested and entertained by a post as this will provide much more effective feedback. Bloggers are always looking for feedback and their readers are the best way for that to happen. You guys create the next level for bloggers so get feedback to them as much as possible whenever they post new content.

The next thing is to make sure you’ve spent time reading the blog before you comment on it. I know this sounds daft but bloggers are smart enough to know when someone has quickly glanced at a blog and comment with something very generic. We would rather have no views than half-arsed ones from people who rush it.

The next thing in regards to commenting is to make sure you aren’t just being nasty. If you find that the blog wasn’t as good as it could have been then you should use constructive criticism in order to help a blogger. Comments that are just full of hate are genuinely not worth it and will be ignored or even just trashed straight away.

My final thing is that commenting on blogs is way more helpful if you do on more than one post especially if the topics that the blogger has written about have nothing in common. Suggesting that you like certain types of a topic to bloggers is always useful because if they enjoy writing about a certain niche then they will tend to do it more as their readers enjoy it more.

This has been my blog guys. I hope my advice helps you think about things from a blogger’s perspective. I would love to thank you for reading and supporting my blog guys. Have a great day.

  1. I agree with most of these practices. In all honesty I think most bloggers don’t truly mind the odd “great post” generic comment or two. It helps with their numbers and sadly is part of the game.

    To add, on comments thread I’d advise any blogger reading this to check out another post on a person’s blog that is more towards your niche/interest if you’re not feeling the post they’ve put up on the thread. That way you’ve at least taken the time and effort to check out their other content.

  2. Yes agree. Constructive comments are very meaningful. I think a lot of bloggers give a generic comment to build a link for themselves. I do like John’s idea of commenting on another post if you have nothing constructive to say.

  3. As a newbie to the blogger scene this is really useful advice for me – I’d never thought before about commenting on the actual blog posts rather than the social media links or how to structure a comment. Thank you.

    1. Thank you so much. Yeah I hadn’t thought much til recently and then I worked out how important it actually is

  4. Ah I loved this post! Such brilliant practises. As a fellow blogger I really understand what you’re saying 🙂 keep up the great work. Will be checking in for future posts for sure X

  5. Great post!

    Haha, just kidding. But another interesting blog post. I personally don’t mind the quick response you often get from readers, but it is always nice when someone takes a moment to actually interact.

    I’ve followed your blog, I’m glad to have found it. Thank you for commenting on my tweet.

    1. Yeah I love building connections with new bloggers and the comments are actually a great way to do it 😊 Thank you so much that’s so kind

  6. I love this! I always try to comment back to other people and also be kind even if I’m trying to critique. No one likes hateful comments! It always sucks getting a “nice post” comment just because I said I’ll comment back.

    1. Yeah that’s so frustrating. I need to work in more time to read more blogs so I think that might help lol

  7. An interesting one, but I actually find I enjoy all comments (providing they’re not just nasty!) It can irk a little when it’s obvious someone hasn’t read the post in a way that’s quite clear (ie. I title the post ‘why I love my dog’ but it’s actually about how he passed away, and someone comments ‘aww I hope you have a lovely weekend taking him for walks!’). Constructive criticism or specific ways in which they enjoyed the blog are always helpful and welcomed, but I actually like any kind of thoughts. I want it to be a space where people can contribute as much or as little as they wish, whether they just want to nod in agreement or share their own stories. I guess with comments, I don’t want to read into it all too much, I just appreciate what I get. But I do see where you’re coming from in terms of what’s useful and valuable to a blogger.

    1. Yeah it’s so obvious when people don’t read a blog first. Yeah that’s a great way to look at it too x

Your feedback is welcomed greatly
