We announced this the other day – and we hope you are all ready to take part in our quarterly blogging challenge the Write Tribe Festival of Words 3 starting tomorrow.
Here are a few commenting tips you can use to make the Festival more meaningful.
Leave Smart comments
Don’t leave generic comments like ‘nice post’ ‘well done’ or ‘nice take on the prompt’. Find a way to engage with the content, the style, the intent of the blogger. Ask a question even. But be genuine. Remember, this is not a ‘contest’ and you are not marking attendance. Remember, good comments build traffic back to you.
If you like a blog, comment on more than one post
The idea of challenges is to establish connections. If you really like the post you’re reading, look for another that you might like on the blog and comment.
Connect on social media.
Look out for the blogger’s social media buttons and follow them on Twitter and ‘like’ their Facebook page. This will go a long way towards building a lasting connection.
Share, share, share
Share the posts you read on Twitter, Facebook, Google+ making sure you tag the person. Remember do unto others’ posts what you’d like to be done unto yours. 🙂
If you really like a blog – subscribe for updates
Sometimes in a challenge, we could forget about a blog we really enjoyed. Look out for a way to subscribe for future updates.If you can’t find their subscribe button, add their URL into your Bloglovin’ account or other reader.
