Blog commenting is a vastly underused strategy for:

 

  • making friends
  • forming bonds
  • gaining exposure
  • spreading brand awareness

 

Genuine blog commenting puts you on the radar screen in your blogging niche. Think; you spend no money, give a little bit of your time and reap the sweet benefits of a genuine blog commenting campaign. In terms of return on investment there is barely anything that comes close to authentic blog commenting, behind writing and publishing posts to your blog of course.

 

But bloggers overlook commenting since most:

 

  • do not know how to comment the right way
  • spam
  • lack blog commenting persistence
  • lack blog commenting patience
  • lack blog commenting generosity

 

Done ineffectively, blog commenting yields no benefits. Done properly, blog commenting seems teeming with positive blogging benefits.

Hold prior intents in mind each time you comment genuinely on blogs to experience these sugary sweet blog commenting benefits:

 

  1. use a free marketing method to gain exposure in your blogging niche
  2. access fellow bloggers with no barriers to be seen; simply avoid dropping spam comments to evade spam queues in order to get your comment approved
  3. be given a forum for showing off your skills, knowledge and credibility
  4. become friends with powerful bloggers
  5. become part of large, loyal blogging communities
  6. target your blogging campaign by commenting only on blogs related to your niche
  7. practice writing to gain confidence and clarity in your writing voice
  8. easily hop over barriers common to guest blogging, gaining do follow links and doing interviews

 

Please revisit the #8 benefit above. Any new blogger can read a post, write a 3-4 paragraph long, genuine comment and publish the comment. New bloggers cannot guest blog, gain do follow links and be interviewed because you have no credibility, no exposure and no one knows who you are…..since new bloggers have no experience, skills and visibility. However, new bloggers with no skills, exposure, credibility or expertise can easily read blog posts and publish in-depth comments to gain:

 

  •  skills
  • exposure
  • credibility
  • clarity
  • confidence
  • expertise

 

You do not need experience to comment genuinely on blogs. No need to be connected to comment authentically on blogs. No beginner blogger needs power, credibility or expertise to comment on blogs. All you need is a willingness to share your thoughts genuinely in loving, caring, generous fashion to:

 

  • publish comments on top blogs from your niche
  • gain skills
  • increase your visibility
  • grow your blogger buddy network
  • gain writing confidence
  • gain writing clarity
  • polish your expertise
  • boost your exposure

 

Whatever you believe that you lack as a blogger you GAIN as a blogger through a genuine blog commenting campaign.

All struggles dissolve into success for bloggers who gobble up opportunities to:

 

  • help people
  • befriend people

 

 

Genuine blog comments bond you with bloggers through patient engaging, by adding value to blog posts and by showing that you honestly care about fellow bloggers. Simply read a post, write a few genuine paragraphs and publish the comment to reap the sweet benefits of a smart blog commenting campaign.

 

Blog commenting is the easiest way for a new blogger or struggling blogger to be seen by large, loyal, engaged communities on blogs other than their own.

    Hi Ryan, I love blog commenting. But I’ve noticed a trend recently, it seems the younger bloggers do not offer comments on their blogs. They seem to use Instagram or TikTok instead. Have you noticed that as well?
    I say keep them on your own website! Others who don’t want to spend the time on blog commenting have stopped offering them which is sad. They are missing out on getting to know others and potential clients. I love answering questions and helping people via my blog comments.

      Comments we receive and publish on our blogs and other blogs can form a bond that lasts as long as we keep blogging. So key! I have noted younger bloggers trying to move discussions over to other sites but keep commenting on more established blogs to keep those bonds strong. Thanks for sharing my friend 🙂

    HI Ryan,
    I am so happy that you wrote this article! As a new blogger, I’ve been reading numerous blogs and making an effort to leave real comments on each of their postings. As Lisa noted, the majority of them lack commenting sections or contain comments that are never allowed. When I see a great article like this one, I always make a point of commenting and sharing my thoughts on it. It’s a wonderful opportunity to meet other bloggers and make new friends.

      Thanks so much for stopping by Sushma 🙂 Blog commenting is still one of the best ways to become a connected blogger.

    Hey Ryan, I have to echo what Lisa said earlier. What I have noticed (in addition to what Lisa speaks about) is the trend seems to have turned to “Hit-and-Run” type comments. That is, short bursts comments, not really intended for continuing the conversation. ‘Here’s my take on it”, or my opinion of it . .

    I would love to say, “That’s a great observation.” But alas, they’ve hit, and ran.

    Hi Ryan,
    I think blog commenting is powerful, especially for beginners. In the last time, it is most spam in the comments. In my opinion, it is also not bad to comment on blogs not in the same niche. How would I know you, Donna, and many others? Also, often young bloggers ask for help and I had some who started and now are pretty good. Like Chayan or Parvakar. All bloggers have in common that they need to know basic things about blogging and how to connect. And also can introduce newbies to others in their niche so they can help them.
    Thank you for writing about it.

      All great points Erika. I agree that commenting outside of your niche here and there multiplies networking potential. Thanks as always my friend.

        Blog commenting is much more than just a way to promote your blog. It has a lot of benefits that can help grow your blog, boost your SEO rankings, network with other bloggers and gain recognition from the community.

        Let’s take a look at why you should blog comment consistently. Build relationships with other bloggers: Blog commenting is a powerful way to build relationships with other bloggers.

        When you comment on someone’s blog, you are free to ask questions, comment on their content or just say “hello”. You’ll quickly build a relationship that will be beneficial for both of you.

        Amazing piece! Thanks for sharing brother!

        Agreed brother. This commenting gig is an amazing gateway activity.

    Hey Ryan,

    What do you think is a good number to visit blogs and comment on them each day? I block off a couple of hours each day to visit ten posts and if I can comment on them?

    Another thing I have noticed is that it’s difficult for other bloggers (especially new ones) to find the blogs of other commenters. If you remember on the first theme I created for you, I could click on a commenter’s name and it would go to that respective commenter’s blog. At the moment I have to google that person’s name and potentially find that person’s blog unfortunately I cannot find Sushma’s blog which is a bit of a shame. Would you be willing to add that feature back and have those links as “No-Follow”. I have this feature on my new blog already and it is a no-follow.

    I also think adding the date and time back would be advantageous but alas its your blog and is entirely up to you.
    Was good to be here brother.

      Hi Phill, All are great ideas buddy. Let us go back to No Follow links, with date and time. I felt an intuitive nudge to do this. Thanks for bringing me this idea. As far as the number, 10 sounds awesome. But ultimately it is up to you to find a time frame that feels fun to work. I am in this same process myself. Right now I spend more time updating old posts and also writing new posts on Blogging From Paradise. But guest blogging also plays a chief role for me in terms of branching out and helping more people. Right now for you, 10 sounds great because you are making a strong impact on 10 fellow bloggers daily. I also see your posts gaining traction on Twitter. Engagement over there is excellent for you. Great job. I am observing and taking notes. Finding the blogs of other commentors will really bring us together much more quickly through Blogging From Paradise. Full steam ahead my friend. Thank you again.

        All good buddy,
        Took me a couple of hours to do but now people can leave a link to their blog now.
        just a couple more tweaking to do. I have added the commentluv plugin to my blog as well now.
        btw have you thought about grabbing your .blog domain yet? There getting quite popular now and the shorter the domain is becoming quite popular.
        All the best,

        Phillip

      • Ryan Biddulph says:

        Thanks heaps my friend. Everything looks great. I will look at that domain name. Good deal on the Comment Luv plugin too. Fabulous. Comments are already increasing. Good job on your latest post too.
