I've been commenting on a lot of blogs recently, I've seen a lot of comments, and I've gotten a lot of comments.
Therefore, I've learned a lot about commenting in a short period of time. But to be honest, I'm mostly making this post because some people who comment literally just don't know how to comment.
I'm really sorry but it needed to be said! I don't think people ever try to be annoying...but they are.
So, if you are commenting on a blog...
Call the writer of the blog things like "sweety" and "honey"
Put sad faces :( when you state they don't follow your blog
Ask the writer to follow your blog if you have over 100 followers
Say you are "waiting" for them to follow you
Say "congratulations! It's a great post!" (I've seen this so many times and I think they're being serious but they really just sound sarcastic.)
Comment with two-word comments like "Nice look!" or "Great tip!"
State the blog writer's name in your comment. (ex: "Signe, I really liked...) It catches the writer's attention and makes the comment 10x more personal.
Learn a proper English translation for what you're trying to say if you're not a native English speaker. Putting in the effort to sound nice in English is essential because if the English isn't correct then you'll sound sloppy to the writer and they will most likely not take you seriously.
Mention something specifically relating to the post you're commenting on. If you don't say anything about it in your comment, the writer may skip over it like spam.
Mention something specific you like about their blog. "Lovely blog" is pretty unoriginal; "I'm in love with your header!" or "I love your balance of fashion and lifestyle posts" will make much more of an impression.
Say you followed the blog if you did, along with mentioning something about the post.
Link your blog at the end of your comment, just not obnoxiously. You want people to know who you are!
Introduce yourself if you're new to blogging (or have less than 100 followers) and say you'd appreciate it if they checked out your blog. If you do it nicely it won't be annoying and many times it really is the best way to gain followers.
Say you're interested in connecting with them in the future or look forward to reading more. (This is ESPECIALLY helpful if you're introducing yourself.) Saying one of these two things will let the writer know you're serious about connecting with other blogs and you want to be involved in the blogging world. AKA, you're legit.
I hope this was helpful...seriously, follow these. ;)
