Building Better Connections

To build better connections for your blog, it’s far more expedient to spend a little time a day to read and comment on several blogs that you follow, than going through hundreds of them leaving your likes and Gravatar on a consistent basis like a sticker.

Your comments leave a more valid impression behind.Β It’s a painstaking and time-consuming affair, but worthwhile in the long-term.

Remember that people follow people – they essentially follow the perceived personalityΒ behind the blog, even when the blogger is anonymous – and not necessarily the website. It’s the connections that form the backbone of your blog and those few minutes spent commenting builds a bridge to networking.


Networking means doing a whole gamut of things that I have written about here before such as:

  • Leaving comments on other blogs.
  • Responding to comments that others leave on yours.
  • Make helpful suggestions.
  • Emailing people to introduce yourself especially in a niche that interest you.

Give yourself a challenge today, comment on at least 5 – 10 blogs that you read.

    I agree with you Jacqueline although I believe that some people are really only interested in commenting on blogs that have a big following or have mega stats.

      Well, they ain’t gonna do much growing themselves like that. The big blogs are far and also have a huge number of followers that they have to keep up with. On the average, I think I read more than 500 blogs if not more each week I don’t know how those with massive stats do it.

        OMG I don’t know how you do it Jacqueline! I think it was yesterday I commented at Shiva’s blog on his old posts where he was celebrating 100 follows. He mentioned how rude some bloggers were who did not even have the grace to thank him for his interaction. I mentioned you as an example of someone very busy but takes the time to connect.

    I sometimes find reading the comments more interesting and entertaining than the post itself ! And butting in to add to other’s comments is kinda fund too.
