All bloggers are in the atmosphere of blog commenting, I don’t think a blogger can do without it. There are just 3 common ways of generating traffic to our blog which are social media, Guest bloging and commenting on blogs but the most effective of all is guest posting, followed by social media then blog commenting. Previously, I was thinking that blog commenting is a waste of time in terms of traffic and not in terms of backlinks. For example, you visit a blog with 100 comments or more, what’s the probability that your comment will standout and people will start clicking your name or your link love (for comluv enabled site), well! I threw the thought into the recyclebin not until some comments on my blog restored it. I can’t call it a comment anymore; I guess I’ll name it a mini guest post. I so love those comment that I visited the blog, read some quality and challenging articles, and eventually but unknowingly subscribed with my eyes closed. Enough of the story Gilbert! I just want to share with you the magnitude, the power, the capability, the the, I’m out of words. Whatever, the power of an epic comment over a short comment.
An Epic Comment commands Visitor to your blog
No tell me, do you expect me, my readers or visitors to visit your blog if your comment is just saying “great article” Hell No! All you are trying to say is that you didn’t read the post through the lines, you just did some humming and you find your way to the end of the content is just 10 seconds and then head to the comment section with your almighty “great article”. Well I’m a kind of person that replies to all comment but you gave me a “great article” then I’ll give you a “you’re welcome” Good bye buddy. But when you post a comment with 2 cents, appreciations and others then all you’re trying to say is that you know more, this will magically unlock the gate to your blog and make it wide open for visitors. You better know how to write an attractive blog title if you want to magnet those visitors and make them become become your readers
An Epic comment shows that you read the blog post COMPLETELY
Well, I’m not a fan of epic comment (trying to get used to it) neither am I a fan of “great article”, “great post” or ”great whatever”, thats totally not my commenting strategy. I might include it at the beginning or at the end of my comment but that doesn’t mean that I won’t write my point, my 2 cents or appreciate the author. I guess I’m standing at the middle of an epic comment and a short comment. Doing this or writing an epic comment still shows that you read the post and you understood it completely. Check out these comments below. There’s many more but I wouldn’t want to consume all the space.
An Epic Comment Encourages the blog author to write more quality content
If I should write a great content and I was given an accolade for it, then my next content should also deserve an accolade, this is going to make me work harder on my next blog post and deliver exactly what my readers want. Comments encourage blog authors (especially new bloggers) to keep the quality post coming. But a blog content without comments is a wide exit door out of the blogosphere because the blogger will be fed up, well that’s not possible. How can I write a blog post and get no comments, even when I did some promotions? Nah that’s not possible.
Enough with the Epic comment lets head over to the short comment.
Gilbert Samuel: Hi Mr Great post why is it that anytime I spend hours writing a great post for my blog, all I get from you is just great post, is it because I have a great post?
Mr Great post: Great question.
I don’t see anything bad in writing a short comment, that’s my way of posting comments, like I said above I’m trying to be Mr Epic Comment. I might read a blog post and go blank after reading it or I might be in a hurry due to one reason or the other and I wouldn’t want to leave the blog without posting a comment, I have no option than to quickly paste “great post, I gained a lot reading this” in the comment section.
So if you’re a fan of short comments (like me) you can keep it up. It all depends on your temperament, some people talk a lot and they would love to convert all their statements into typed words. Epic comment and short comments are both good but I would love to hear your opinion. Which one’s better?
