|Find a great post and comment on it.|
For today's task, read at least one blog post and comment on it (linking back to your blog). And the comment should not be something along the lines of, "Hey, cool post. Come check out my blog." Instead, you need to find a blog post that really speaks to you and then make a thoughtful comment.
Here are a few possible ways to respond:
- Share your own experience. If you've experienced something similar to what's covered in the post, share your own story. You don't have to write a book or anything, but maybe a paragraph or two.
- Add another perspective. Maybe the post was great, but there's another angle that should be considered. Don't be afraid to point that angle out.
- Ask a question. A great post usually will prompt new thoughts and ideas--and questions. Ask them.
As far as linking back to your blog, you could include your blog's URL in the comment, but also, most blogs have a field in their comments that allow you to share your URL. Usually, your name will link to that URL, which should either be your blog or your author website (if it offers regularly updated content).
