Want blog comments? That’s up to you.

Let’s face it, we all want comments on our blog posts. Sure we have stat counters in the background telling us how many people visited and from where but comments are the only way visitors know for sure that people actually read the blog. And to entice you to leave comments I’m having a giveaway! Read on to find out what it is.

If you want readers to comment on your blog I’m going to give you a simple tip. Make it easy for them to comment. Make it difficult and readers won’t bother. For example if you make them log into anything like most WordPress.com blogs do, I won’t bother commenting.

If you have a Blogger blog and don’t offer the Name/URL option I won’t bother commenting either.

BlogComments

I don’t think I should have to log into anything to leave a comment. I’m stubborn like that. Must be the Irish blood.

And if you make the CAPTCHA too hard I’ll just keep on surfing and not leave a comment either. There are other ways to avoid SPAM comments.

Now, the giveaway. I’m giving my Social Media for the Writer workshop starting May 1. I’m giving away two free spots in the class. I’m doing a Rafflecopter giveaway so there are a number of ways to enter. One is by leaving a comment below about social media! Winner will be announced before the class starts and you’ll receive an invite to the email loop.

    The whole thing about blogging is that it is a massive learning curve.

    There is so much I don’t understand and also things to do whereby you follow instructions – but alas – rarely work for me…

    So any insight is welcome….xx 🙄

    This requires filling in blanks also…I guess they all do. I use WordPress so I’m always signed in and those are the easiest blogs for me to comment on. I usually give up on making a comment when the blog requires me to enter my n ame, my nickname, my email, and THEN copy those jumbled letters and numbers — arrgh! it’s just too much of a hassle. 😆

    I use blogger and I didn’t even know I could have a url option. Will have to go and find it. thanks, love learning something new. This social media stuff always has more I don’t know of. LOL> 😆

    I guess i need to go check my settings. I use word press also, and i’m not sure what it requires to make a comment. Good tip, thanks!
