BLOGGERS, PLEASE READ THE NOTE BELOW WITH A TIP FOR HOW TO GET MORE COMMENTS ON YOUR BLOG! (Hint: don’t make it so hard on us.)
It’s that crazy time of the week where you entice us with your links and comments to go check out your blogs and your great REAL FOOD tips and ideas! (If you’re a blogger, you’ll draw some good traffic to your site…)
What to remember:
- A link back to this post please. (Blog carnival etiquette you know!)
- Retweet and stumble this post and also any sites you visit – this will get more exposure to all of us, thank you!
- Don’t have a blog? We still want to hear from you! Please leave your tips or recipes in the comments.
Before we get to Mr. Linky, Cara from http://healthhomehappy.com/ has a suggestion for bloggers who would like more traffic and comments on their blogs:
“I like to visit and comment on blogs from Real Food Wednesday, but I just clicked on four different ones to comment on, and three of them had like 3-4 hoops to jump through before I could leave a comment; with little kids running around, it’s likely that some time during that process I’ll forget what I’m doing and close the tab before it’s all done, which means less comments for blogs that I like! A lot of Blogger bloggers don’t realize this because they don’t have to jump through their own hoops to leave comments since the blog recognizes them as owners. DISQUIS comments never like me, so I have to post with my twitter profile (which isn’t my preferred method of commenting!). With Blogger, to make it easy to comment, they can go to
Settings>>> Comments>>> Allow Registered Users (Includes Open ID) and Show Word Verification? NO.
When I had a Blogger blog I only enabled comment moderation on posts that I thought might be controversial and set it at automatically moderating after 14 days, and if I had a post that kept getting SPAM comments (usually older posts that legitimate people didn’t comment on any more) I just turned comments off for that post.
I found this to be the minimum amount of hoops for people to jump through, and the best way to prevent spam on my blog. Of course people don’t have to do exactly what I did, but I’m not even sure they are aware of how much of a pain in the bum it is to comment on their blogs!”
Now you’re up, and we can’t wait to see your stuff!
