Choosing Articles on Requests for Comments
I had an epiphany recently. Instead of just leaving comments for random sites in the request for comments exchange, I have become selective. Since this decision, leaving comments has become much more enjoyable for me. If I am going to read posts, why not choose to read posts that are relevant and of interest to me. I'm thinking this is a WIN-WIN for me and the person that I am leaving a comment for because I am more interested in the top, probably more knowledgeable, and maybe will even purchase something which I have done.
In addition to choosing articles to comment on, I do post a request for comments and will reciprocate for anyone that does comment for me. This may be a more efficient way to swap comments because it is more of a guarantee that a comment will be exchanged. At the same time, it is not always enjoyable as I end reading about things that aren't always relevant to me. Who knows though. It probably is expanding my mind. :)
I'd love to hear others thoughts on exchanging comments. What works for you? Do you have a strategy?
