Keeping on top of your comments should be just as important as writing your next post.
Thanks BlogWorld because that is some great advice and I really need to be on top of that.
■Field Spam. I just FLAG the spam on this blog and on my wordpress blog I have Akismet installed which does an awesome job. Some of the comments are funny and nothing to do with your blog or the post. Don't let it get to you...just DELETE!
■Approve Comments. I manually approve my comments but I need to do the follow thru....actual respond back.
■Reply to Comments. I love it when I post on a blog and they respond back to me...LOVE IT! So I need to do the same here. I'm making a commitment to do that from now on and I will be going back and making sure I haven't missed anyone lately. I know I have this week to do for sure!
■Start a Debate. So if someone doesn't like your post/blog still respond to them...ok I understand the concept and I will do that from now on. Great advice.
■Bring Comments Into Your Posts. LOVE this idea! I will be browsing my comments and sharing some in the future. Also recommend a GUEST POST....ummm thats a great idea too. I need to find a BLOGGING BUDDY.
