Getting comments on your blog can be extremely valuable and rewarding. If you blog, you know how exciting it is to see a bunch of comments on your posts, but what exactly is it that you do that makes this happen? Certain types of posts certainly are good at attracting more attention, more buzz, and, yes, more comments. The following tips should help you compose posts that are not only buzz-worthy, but also inspire your visitors to leave you with comments.
If you write something that is shocking or goes against convention, there is a good chance that your readers will take notice. If you have thin skin, this type of post may not be for you, as the deluge of comments you experience may not be all positive, if at all.
Craft a post that has a question for a title. Use the body of the post to propose some suggested solutions to the question, but make sure that you don’t definitively answer the question. Then, at the end of the post, you need to ask you readers to leave their questions in the comments.
People love to put in their two cents about stuff, and if they can put in their input and be an expert, they are more than happy to help. Write about why your bread won’t rise or how you can’t get your nail polish to stop chipping. Whatever you choose to write about, end you post by asking the readers for their advice and their solutions to the problem.
You don’t have to give an actual prize away, but this post type can get you quite a bit of attention. To do it, you should make up a category such as “Best Business Blog” and nominate some of your favorite blogs and explain why. Ask you visitors for their nominations and input, and you will most likely get it, especially if you blog in a strong, active nice.
If you usually write posts, think about posting some media like a video or an image. If you usually share media or other posts, write something up. Changing things up will get your visitor’s attention, and there is a good chance that your regular readers will ask you why you chose to change.
There is no way to guarantee that you get comments on your blog posts unless you pay for them or purposely bring on spam. These tips for writing posts that invite comments make no promises, but they are a great way to boost your odds of getting good, quality comments on your site. As you write, think of topics and approaches that your readers will have to comment on, things that are just begging for a response, and go with those to help better your chances for lots and lots of comments.
