Welcome to HOT Friday! It seems that everywhere in the UK is having a heatwave...
I just wanted to talk to you briefly today about commenting on Blog posts, a non wedding related post I’m afraid but something I just wanted to discuss quickly with you.
This isn’t a begging post or a ‘please comment on my blog’ post just a question really to find out why people comment on some blog posts and not on others.
As a blogger the main thing I look at is my stats, I look at these every day and so far month on month my stats are growing, from this I know that there are a lot of people who are reading the blog………….BUT even so it’s always nice to get your feedback through the comments section.
BUT what I wanted to put across today is the main reason I want you to comment is for the people I feature in the Blog Post. The suppliers I feature, the photographers work I feature and the actual brides who’s weddings I feature.
The main issue for me is posting a real wedding and then people not commenting! This is someones wedding, and most of the time the bride and groom have spent time filling in the answers to my questions so I can tell the story of their day……..It’s for them that I want you to comment! NOT me! I want them to feel excited about appearing on a blog and then to be ever more excited when people comment on how lovely their wedding is.
The same for the photographer of the wedding, it’s always good to get constructive comments about their work, this is their job after all and it’s always appreciated when someone complements you on what a good job you have done.
The same goes for the suppliers I feature, always good to get a compliment about their work!
So I’m not on an ego trip, I just want the people I feature to feel the love……I can see my stats, I know people are reading the blog!….The comments section is really more for them.
I’d also like to create more of a sense of community on the blog, to get you talking to each other, the comments also means I get a good idea of what you like and what you don’t like.
On Monday I will be posting up the results of the readers survey, and acting on it with new features, more of some things and less of others, BUT this blog is for you, so I still need your on-going help to make it something you want to come back to, something you want to read as well as something you enjoy and find useful.
Personally if I see something on a blog I like I leave a comment, a wedding I like, a photographers work I like, a supplier. If I like it I will let them know….feedback after all is key in making us better people and create better work!
So do tell me what makes you comment on one blog post and not another. Are you shy? Do you never think of commenting and just leave it to other people? Do you not see the point of commenting? Would you like me to interact with you all more through the comments section?……….again your answers always go towards carting a better blog for you!
