Allow me to introduce my blogging buddy. Mr. Peanut, who is also my avatar, is my constant companion while I'm on the computer. I set this drawer up so I could put my feet up while browsing, but Mr. Peanut decided it was his. He and I have conversations about the sites I visit, NO I'm not crazy just a little neurotic . At time's I ask him what he thinks about my comments, and he sits there and cocks his head to one side or the other. He has been the one responsible for rating my comments. He is also the one responsible for me getting so heavily involved in blogging. His attitude and actions caused me to start my first blog, Chihuatude. Shortly after that I started this blog.
This blog has changed my basic wallflower personality. In the past, I have been a lurker, going around reading blogs, enjoying their content, but never leaving a comment, never saying thanks, or letting them know I appreciate their site. The comments I have received here have, over a period of a a few months, changed my blogging personality. Knowing how the comments made me appreciate my readers, and let me know there were people out there interested in my ramblings.
A short time ago I changed the HTML code in my template to allow following comments. This means that if you leave a comment, you leave a link to you site or profile. Just recently signed up with SezWho, and loaded their code on this site. The advantage of SezWho, is that it tracks a commenter and allows other members to rate them. What good is that, you ask. Well as you build your reputation, simply by going around and leaving comments, people see your rating and want you to come comment on their site. They will then come to your site and leave a comment. We all leave comments on different sites, and why not let it generate a little traffic to your site.
What we all need to do, is start rating the comments, and content, on the sites we visit. Many of you are Entrecard members, and know how easy it is to find new, fun and interesting sites through that endeavor. Now that Entrecard and SezWho have joined forces, we should start taking advantage of both, and using them to steer traffic to our sites. So as you leave comments, be sure to rate your fellow members, I think it will benefit us all in the long run. I have been rating comments and content since I signed up with SezWho, and enjoy it when I visit other sites where comments have been rated.
If your not a member of SezWho, sign up and enjoy the reviews. You do not need a blog (Kel) just a user name that you regularly leave comments under, and its free..
