Is it just me or is there a whole new group of bloggers who are "replying" to people's comments in their own comment thread?
I know I keep talking about this but it is something people are really responding to.
I was thinking about it
I hate to say this
I blame Facebook!
I know, I love Facebook too.
But hear me out.
Everyone replies to comments left on their Facebook IN the comment thread.
It makes sense.
And you get a cool little notice when someone responds to something you left in a thread.
Sometimes people even "like" what you have to say.
I admit that little "thumbs up" thing is something I really enjoy about Facebook.
But blogging is NOT Facebook.
Really, it isn't.
With blogging I don't get a little notice telling me someone "liked" my comment or that someone has even commented on my comment.
I never go back to a comment I leave on someone's blog to see if the blogger left me a comment back.
Why would I?
Once I comment on a post I usually wait until they post again to visit them and comment on the NEW post.
So last week I decided to start a bloggy revolution, I added it to my most recent Bloggy Business post.
If you missed that Bloggy Business post you might want to check it out. There was also a fun announcement.
I decided to go ahead and dedicate a whole post to this new bloggy revolution.
The Enable Email movement.
The Down with "No Reply Blogger" epidemic. (what?)
You might be a "no reply" blogger and not even know it.
Allow me to help you.
Go to your "dashboard". Click "edit profile". Click the little box next to "show my email address". Click "SAVE".
It should show the same address that your comments are delivered to. If you want email sent to a different address you will need to change your address. I can walk you through that via email.
Now, what do you say?
Do you want to become part of the bloggy revolution? Just add this button to your sidebar.
I am not saying that if you add the button to your blog that you NEED to reply to comments left on your blog via email. I am just saying, why not give people the option of responding to your comments?
If you add the button to a post link it up.
I will collect links until Feb. then I will draw for a winner. I am giving away a mini package of PINK goodness and I will mail the prize out on the same day I ship my partner's package for the Pinktasic Swaptastic.
If you already posted and let me know, link your post up...hopefully everyone who has already posted will come back and link up, I don't want to miss anyone.
This can be added on to ANY post or be a post in and of itself...just link it up in order to qualify for the prize drawing.
Go forth and revolutionize!!
PPS. I also think it makes sense for Private Bloggers who have a smaller following to reply within their comment thread (Holla! Meg and Angela)
