Have You Received Help Like This?
I recently reached the end of lesson 7 in Level 2 where we are instructed to share content on the "Give & Take" Discussion. I visited the blogs mentioned in the three most recent comments and left a thoughtful, relevant comment on each.
A Thoughtful, Relevant Comment Example
Here is one of my comments as it apepars on a sneaker (shoe-related) blog:
Would you not agree that it is thoughtful and relevant?
My comment is a genuine one that shares a little of my experience with shoes and promotes further discussion. Furthermore, all of the spelling, grammar, and punctuation is spot-on.
You'll notice that I made NO mention of my own website in the comment, and decided to leave out my own URL from the author field.
It just didn't feel right to include a "shameless plug" in order to promote my own blog/website. This was about giving, and allowing otheres to give in-kind to my blog in the form of a comment.
An Irrelevant, Spammy Comment Example
Unfortunately, what I've received in return (as of the time of writing) left a lot to be desired! This afternoon I was greeted by three spam-laced comments that were hardly relevant.
Have a look:
Not one of these is helpful or particularly relevant. I marked all three of them as "Spam."
So... Moving forward.
I would truly appreciate some high-quality comments — and I am more than willing to offer the same. My blog is located at top10domainhosts.com.
Leave a quality comment to one of my blog posts, then comment to this post that you've done so along with your blog address so I can return the favor. Thank you in advance for your help.
