We all want more comments on our blog posts.
More comments means more popularity and a quality community of commenters adds immense value to our writing.
A way to reward readers for leaving a comment (and encourage them to keep coming back) is to let them link back to their own blog.
This pushes a little traffic back to their own blog in exchange for a quality comment on yours. It’s a win-win.
But a community isn’t built on a few comments here and there.
It’s built on connection, on familiar faces… and even a little competition.
