Lately, I’ve observed that you all do a bad job when it comes to commenting on the blog. So here’s a quick tutorial that will introduce you to commenting on blogs. If you follow the tips mentioned in this post, not only you’ll be able to post comments on any blog that you read but also help improve the overall quality of junk being put on the Internet every day. Get a pen and a paper and be ready for your personality improvement class –
1. Deciding to comment on a blog: This is the first step and most of my loyal readers are can’t take simple decisions. So, how can you decide whether you should comment on the blog post? The answer is simple. Ask your gut feeling. If it says yes, You should. If it says no, you should think again. For example, right now, you are either thinking of writing a funny comment on this post so that you appear more wittier and smarter than I am OR you are thinking you should just ignore it. But you are still undecided. I want you to go ahead and show the world that you are not like everyone else.
2. Deciding what to write in the comment: Ok, now that you have decided to comment, you should write something relevant to the post. Try to recall what was going on inside your brain while you were reading the post. Try to convert your instant thoughts into words – which is often the most difficult job. Just a word of caution: Don’t try to appear smarter than the blog owner.
3. Writing your comment: Be very clear and to the point in your comment. You can simply express your opinion with fewest words possible. You may praise or curse the blogger. It’s your choice. But be to the point.
4. Feel Good Factor: After you comment, you should feel good about it. I sometimes get emails that say, “I shouldn’t have commented on your blog.”.
I am thankful to you for reading this post. I’m sure you won’t comment just to show that you’re inert to all the enlightenment.
