For task #20 (hey, we’re making progress!) in the Blogger Challenge is to leave some comments on other blogs.  What a fun task!  If you’ve set up your iGoogle page (or another RSS reader), it should be fairly easy to click open 10 or so blogs and start reading and commenting.  However, there is a catch.  Darren Rowse, author of the 31 Day Blogger Challenge, heavily stresses this: “Don’t be a comment SPAMMER!”  Better yet, don’t even appear to be one.  How do you avoid the appearance of spam?  Add value.    Here’s some of his tips on how to add value:

  • Keep comments on topic
  • Let your comment show that you’ve read the post
  • Say what you like or don’t like about the post
  • Add an example or another point that the blogger might have missed
  • Ask a relevant and insightful question
For more tips, check out Darren’s article on “11 Tips on how to get your comment noticed on popular blogs”.  So, why not start right here?  Leave a comment and tell me what’s the hardest part about keeping your blog going?
