The last few posts on Portugal haven’t been my most popular in terms of comments, in fact the last post as of 8pm on Wednesday night had one solitary comment, my brother. He would be the least interested about the post – he was there.
I just don’t see the point of faking them, and you’re only cheating yourself. It is much better to have a purely natural comment from somebody else you can both appreciate it. Stopping the “orgasm” innuendo for just a little bit, there’s two reasons why I wouldn’t fake them:-
- I’d arse it up, saying things like “Oh Rhys you’re so sexy!”, which is a blatant lie.
- I’ve blogged for months when I started off when I didn’t recieve a single comment.
However, a lot of other bloggers base much of their success on comments, so here’s how to get comments without faking it.
Ask Friends and Family
First point of call is to ask your friends and family to read entries and comment on them. Of course, I’m too proud for this, so it’s usually in the way of “I can’t believe my entry on African Field Goats got no comments. Woe is me!”. They usually then comment on my blog. Works every time.
Write for your Readers
Like a lot of things about myself, my style of writing is long, clumbersome and difficult to swallow in one mouthful. A lot of you lot probably prefer small, bitty posts you can read in your big London trading jobs. I know, I’m sorry, I’m trying to improve on this. I’ll do my best.
Ask a Question
I got loads of responses when I left a question at the end of the post. People like giving an opinion, and interacting. So ask a question related to the post.
Talk About Sex
Obvious really. My most popular posts is when I talk about the squelchy. You’re all a bunch of internet perverts.
So, with that in mind, what’s the best way you use for comment baiting?
