How to get more out of blog comments #WonderfulWorldofWriting

So, we all know that reading lots and lots (and lots) helps to develop us as writers. And I would include reading blogs in with that.  When I really enjoy reading a blog post, I feel compelled to comment but this week my commenting habit has changed somewhat.  And I’m not entirely sure why.  But it has.  This week I’ve found myself reading other peoples’ comments, not just scrolling down to eagerly post my comment.  The downside (if you want to call it that) is that my thoughts are often influenced by others’ comments.  I try not to let this happen but it invariably does.  Sometimes I even feel compelled to reply to a comment already made.  I’ve written before about how sharing can improve your blogging experience.  But this week I’ve come to the realisation that actually reading the other comments too is just as beneficial.

Blog comments – do you read other comments or do you just have your say and call it a day?

Is it someone’s birthday and you don’t know what to do?

Let me write a personal rhyme especially for you.


A personal rhyme from you to them,
it’s unique, bespoke and easy.
Get in touch today, waste no more time,
It’s really easy peasy…

  1. Yep, with you. I tend to comment first and then read the comments later. I do sometimes end up saying the same thing as other commenters but as you said, I don’t want to feel influenced by them.
    Another thing I have found myself doing more of recently is commenting on other people’s comments (this is probably rude but I’m on the internet etc etc) and tehreby continuing a conversation rather than starting a new thread so the OP has to say things over and over and over and over…
    Commenting is an odd one. I think you have to find what works for you and your blogging style. x

  2. It can depend what the post is about and how many other comments there are…I might have a quick browse of others’ comments on some posts but I tend to take a particular interest if it’s on something thought – provoking, to see what the other commenters’ views are. X
