What gets you into the conversation on your favorite blogs? There were some questions posed today on Writing North Idaho blog that I think are worth asking. So, what do you think?
Q. Why do you follow the blogs you do?
Q. Why do you comment when you do?
Q. What would (or does) keep you from commenting on a blog?
Q. What has worked to get people into the conversation and involved on your blog?
I wondered if my answers to this question might be helpful to others so I copied my thoughts on how to get people “talking” on your blog. 🙂 Here is my answer to the last question:
On blogging –
1.It seems like it takes a year for blogs to get their own momentum.
2.The most traffic I have is when I write personal/humor posts but that might have something to do with my nutty life!
3. I also had great success with a weekly “carnival”; something that happens regularly with active participation/homework 🙂 and often links to other blogs. BUT…that’s hard work and often brought readers ONLY in it for the hits to their blog.
4. FB and Twitter pages that automatically post new articles. People will often comment there and/or click over and are more likely to participate now that I’m “bringing it to them”.
What other ideas do you guys have?
