How to Create a Lasting Impression on Other Blogs

Do you ever stop and think when you are leaving a comment on another blog, is this admin really going to care about what I say? I wonder if he even reads my comments? I do. If you have been trying to make a lasting impression on your favorite blogs, I am going to give you a short tip I learned from some of my comments.

Just a few days ago I was going through my blog comments, and I can remember a lot of the comments, but I can remember some more than others. There is one in particular that did something to make me want to do this blog post for you.

What did he do?

I don’t know if he did it on purpose, but somehow, he created a lasting impression on my blog forever. Matt from Big Red Tomato Company commented on my blog. Pretty simple blog comment and I appreciate it very much.

How did he do it?

Like I said before, I don’t know if he did this on purpose, but he called me by the wrong name, and he apologized, which I really wasn’t too happy with (sarcasm).

How did he make a lasting impression?

Basically he did that in many ways, I will say. First, Matt commented on my blog, then he apologized, and then he posted another comment all in one day. And yes he complimented on the post. Thanks Matt

So there you have it, I know it’s a really basic tip, but I just had a gut feeling it would be great for some newbies out there. I don’t think it is annoying to get a bunch of comments from anyone I love it personally so if you feel like bombarding me with them please do so.-Big Red Tomato Company

Now that I’ve shown you how to really get the attention of a blogger, do me a favor and go hammer Matt with some comments on his blog. He has an awesome site that is really working on making a difference and helping you achieve your dreams; plus he seems like a great guy.

    The comments area of a blog is my favorite part of blogging. Its all about extending the conversation and expanding on the topic. That was cool how Matt came back and apologized.

    • Yea I think sometimes I spend more time on the comments that on the post itself…this hurts my time management but sometimes the conversation is more valuable than the time I lost.

    Great post Matt!

    Blog comments that are long and like the commenter has actually read the post and want to contribute to it stand out more for me, rather then a simple statement like 'great post <name>'

    Also jokes are good, I got your name wrong on purpose there ^ 😉

    • Good one there I was like, matt???? I get it thanks!! I agree adding value with a long or even a thoughtful comment is better than a great post I hate those.
