BIP #7 - Make your blog more commentable

Once again I'm the chubby rhino from Jumanji running along five minutes behind the rest of the Blog Improvement Project herd. I've just found out that April is Focus on Comments month and that the wrap up for the first task is on Saturday 18th.


Oh well, I'm not too worried. As long as it helps improve my blog, what does it matter that I am taking longer to do it than the other BIPpers - right?


So, making my blog more comment friendly.


A lot of the articles about this on BIP mentioned writing open ended posts, posing questions and making sure to reply to comments (something I have been very bad at doing lately - sorry).


Now, I thought I would incorporate a few of those techniques into this post and ask you, dear readers, to tell me what makes you comment on a blog post. What is it that really makes you get out your keyboard and type? What are the things that turn you from a lurker to a participator? And what are the things that really annoy you and make you leave a blog in disgust?


I look forward to


(is that open ended enough?)

Like - interesting subjects, funny entries, pictures, good grip of language, the feel of unique personality in compositions, pretty blogsite.

Hate - long and boring entries, generalization, no pictures, too many pop-ups, terrible typos, infantile quarrels, too simple a blogsite.

You asked, so I answered.

They are brilliant lists, Shadowthorne. I must note them down and remember them when I'm writing my posts. :)

Regular postings, comments, reviews, trends, political commentary, weather forecasts... What was the questions again???? :)

Inkpot said...

Good list DNOTY2007/2008. I think the most important thing is to comment regularly. That way people who follow your blog will make comments, but if you don't post they stop dropping by and then the comments dry up.
