I have been much into interactions and wrote many articles related to it, the last 3 articles I wrote were completely related to interactions. This article is based on how you can improve your blog commenting skills. Blog commenting is no doubt one of the best sources to network with people. I know many bloggers leave comments such as “thanks”, “well written mate”. Everybody knows that good bloggers consider these comments as spam and they aren’t going to approve these comments. For newbie bloggers it is a hard task to get noticed, they can make efficient use of blog commenting to get noticed, it can’t only help them in getting noticed but it would help them in effective blogging too, it would improve their writing skills and of course their thinking skills. Thinking skills? Yeah thinking skills, I think before commenting, I allow my brain to work. I try to summarize all the stuff which I just read.
Why I Prefer Blog Commenting?
Well, it’s a network building trick. It’s not easy but it helps you to be a networking machine. I prefer it because when I increased my activity in blog commenting in last few days I found an increase in number of comments and visits on my blog.
Benefits of blog commenting. Let me reiterate the fact!
Yes, you might have read this thing many times. For the sake of this post, let me reiterate this.
Blog commenting helps you:
- Networking with bloggers which will significantly increase your blog traffic.

- Lift your profile as you are getting noticed by people.
How to Write Stunning Comments to Gain Attention:
Writing comments is an art; some people are writing comments with great enthusiasm and gaining popularity as bloggers and influencers. I have realized the importance and looking forward to increase awareness. Let’s move towards the topic:
Here is a comment from my blog, it’s by Sam Adeyinka on the post Why and How to Expand Your Network for Effective Blogging? This is no doubt a stunning comment; let’s find out what is included in this comment.
So here are some things I have figured out in this comment. Before you start typing a comment read the article and try to summarize what is written in it, here is the way how you can write a better comment:
Name the Author:
Your intention behind commenting is to interact with people, so why don’t you create a friendly environment by calling the author by his name? Just like Sam did. It would not only add value to your comment but would impress the author as well.
Appreciate the Author:
Everyone likes to be appreciated, if you like the article and if the author deserves appreciation then appreciate him with some kind words. In the first paragraph Sam is talking about my comment on a fellow blogger’s blog. It was his first visit on my blog and he came to my blog through Emmanuel’s blog. So, do you understand how blog commenting is going to help you? His visit from Emmanuel’s blog is a clear example.
Experience is Impressive:
While writing articles I always try to fill up my articles with personal experiences and stories. Writing your own experience in comments can attract the author and the readers as well, people like to read experiences. Many folks read comments after reading the article; if you write comments to create interest then it will surely help you.
Describing your thoughts about the article is a great trick, try to mention, what you think about it, what you’ve learnt from it and if you haven’t experienced the thing yet which is mentioned in the article then write what will be your next step.
Sam’s comment is a lengthy one and I personally liked it but it’s not necessary to write lengthy comments, you just have to complete what you want to say, your intention should be to form relationship with the author and comment readers. You are supposed to write a meaningful comment which attracts readers and author. Just leaving a small piece of spam won’t help you.
Blog Commenting helps you to acquire multifarious benefits. You can pluck more fruits with a single attempt. Achieving the best from blog commenting isn’t easy but if you try to be on top by leaving insightful and meaningful comments then it would surely help you.
