This week’s task is pretty simple and fun for all you socialites out there! It is to email a reader who’s left a comment on your blog. You can do this!

- If the person has left a link to their own blog in their comment, leave a comment on their blog. Again, this is another technique I used in my early days of blogging and it was certainly paramount in building readership.
- Respond to the comment ON your blog. Sending the email is great for making an impression on the individual person, but leaving a comment in your own comment section shows other readers that you’ll engage in conversation. It also helps build comment numbers, which can build social proof and show your blog is active.
