This is such a great blog. I see so many comments that are just way off base... One ov the reasons I like Active Rain is the ability to read all of the comments from all over the world...
Make sure your comment is to the point and helpful...
Choose that comment carefully and you may just gain a subscriber
I don't know about you but I like watching my subscriber number go up more than just about anything. I mean, don't get me wrong I also like coming closer to #1 for the Charlotte NC area. But those subscribers is what keeps the comments rolling long after your post has left the blog roll.
You get a total of 10 "pointed" comments per day and of course you could comment all day long if you wanted (and didn't have much else of a life) but I want to make those ten really count. Craig Daniels mentioned in a blog the other day that you need at least 10 or more words to even count as a "pointed" comment. Which means "nice post" ain't gonna cut it, folks.
Who cares if you put that type of comment. So what? No one really cares. It's the encouraging, uplifting or sometimes change of perspective type of comments that really makes the writer sit and think, "hey, you really did read my blog and are genuinely offering your 2 cents."
With my post the other day about blogging just to discredit others there was plenty of long-handed comments and as you know by now, my responses were not the briefest of words. But a couple commenters mentioned that their blogs also get heated and have some heavy dialogue. That certainly prompted me to want to read more. I immediately went and subscribed. Not for the basic idea that everyone likes to watch the "train wreck" but because there will be more to debate and learn on that type of blog.
What I'm saying is that your comment COULD land you subscribers. And those subscribers COULD land you more comments and those comments COULD potentially turn into potential customers down the line. You never know. But don't throw the comment juice out with the bath water!
Take your commenters to heart and learn to use those 10 comments you get a day for intriguing comments back. You don't have to get subscribers just from your own blog but spread yourself out among the bloggers and write at least one thing every day that could possibly make the writer want to know more about you. If your comment sounds interesting... the rest of you might be as well.
