    Hi guys, I heard of a good concept the other day called a commenting tribe where you basically join a group of people who follow each others blogs and post comments to help start conversation and help the blogs become a bit more active.

    Nothing artificial just getting in the habit of reading certain blogs and providing a comment where you have something to add or thanking people for useful posts etc.

    I blog a lot and I always love it when I get comments (especially when they aren’t selling Viagra) but it doesn’t happen that often. I would be definitely keen on the idea of following some other small business blogs and helping each other by posting relevant comments on posts that are made.

    Anyone keen?

    Cool thanks what is your blog? I’ll sign up for the feed and comment when I have something to say. Mine is in my signature (I think….I’m on a forum app so I can’t see my signature lol)

    Doesn’t this kind of defeat the purpose of blogging?

    Actually, can you describe the purpose of blogging?

    Cheers,

    Hi guys I joined a more organised commenting tribe the other day, I think it is going to be pretty useful – particularly for people starting out. I guess once you are getting a stream of comments on your blog already it’s not worth it but for newbies it can be really hard work getting to that point.

    I think it only really works if it’s well organised. In this one I am in it’s got it’s own forum and someone posts a new commenting thread and the first 10 people to reply with their recent posts are part of that thread and they all have to comment on every one else’s post.

    I think it’s a good idea providing that the topic is kept pretty tight because I found some of these posts are so unrelated to what I do that I struggle coming up with any sort of comment.

    I just wanted to reply to this post anyway to see if anyone is interested in doing something in a bit more of a formal way. I guess we’d have to set up a separate little forum or something. I could probably set something up on my site http://helpforsmallbusiness.com if there is enough interest in it.
