Here's how you can maximise your chances of getting traffic back to your website by leaving quality comments for other bloggers. Basically it boils down to common sense and a bit of a balancing act...
1) Don't be too eager to be first to comment, but don't be last either.
2) Read the whole post!
3) Pick a part you want to comment on and write no more than a paragraph.
4) Add some value to the discussion.
5) Stay on topic.
6) Use an example from personal experience.
7) Don't self promote!
Blogging is an amazing concept so here I am giving it a whirl. You'll get words. You'll get pics. Sometimes a vid or two. You'll get tongue in cheek, the odd humble opinion and an honest insight into my travels and writing life. Maybe even a few gems along the way. I'll be musing on home turf as I see more and more of the UK and sharing my experiences further afield on holidays and adventurous trips across the globe.
