This week's task is about leaving quality comments on the blogs of others and seeing whether that attracts commenters to your blog.
In addition the task includes hunting down some advice about how to write quality comments.
We are also asked whether we keep track of the comments we leave on other people's blogs. Well, I do in a way, but I don't always tick that box that sends follow up comments back to me.
My goals this year have included leaving a comment, if I can, on every blog I visit.
- I do try to make the comment relevant to what I found on the blog.
- if the person has reviewed a book I have blogged about then I leave the URL of my review. Sometimes I comment on what they've said in their review.
Here are some websites I found
- Good Comment
- How to Write Killer Blog Posts and More Compelling Comments
- 20 ways to get more blog comments
At the time of writing (21 April) my blog has 624 posts and 1799 comments.
That is a ratio of 2.89 comments per post.
