Comments Challenge

comments challengeI spend a silly amount of time on this blog, some of you wouldn’t believe it if I told you but the one thing I REALLY neglect is interacting with my readers. I have really committed to responding to comments on YouTube and try to get back to as many people on twitter as possible but I very rarely respond on my blog. I don’t know why, the format of the comments isn’t AS user friendly perhaps but I’ve decided, since it’s the month of love and all that I would try to change that. For the month of February I will respond to every comment I see (fingers crossed that’s EVERY comment) AND endeavor to comment more on blogs that I read myself too. Sharing the love is always a good idea but this month it seems especially poignant to do so.

Sorry to those of you who’ve asked me questions and never had an answer.. I promise to be better! And any of you other bloggers reading, I challenge you to do the same (if you’re not already doing it)

    Khila I hear you. I always tell myself to reply to the people commenting on my blog. But then life gets in the way and in the evening I’m tired and want to go to bed. Not easy being a mom, wife, college student, blogger and Avon Consultant. All my work is on the computer so it always seems as if I am just surfing through the web when in actuality I am working. I’m going to try to reply to everyone. We’ll see how I hole up by the end of the week. πŸ™‚

      that’s an issue I have too.. Obviously my husband understands that 90% of the time I’m working but for someone who’s only ever had a conventional job it must be tough to totally ‘get’. Must be a bit like someone not thinking a model really works.. of course they do it’s just a totally different kind of work than the rest of us lol

    I think this is a great idea! As a blogger starting out, one of the key points I kept reading was to reply to all your comments. And I think this is a really important part of blogging and interacting with people who are stopping by and taking the time to leave their thoughts. However, for someone like yourself, who obviously not only has a blog but multiple Youtube channels and a family, I can imagine how this become a near on impossible challenge! As a small fish blogger, it is nice to get replies to comments from the bigger bloggers out there πŸ™‚ Good luck with your challenge! xx

      See I started on YouTube and so much as this now takes up a lot more of my time I always feel like my readers come from my videos.. of course that’s not the case anymore so there will be people who just comment here and think I’m super ignorant lol x

    I love your YouTube and blog! Brilliant.
    My friend and I started a beauty blog a few months ago and would love for you to have a read!

      thank you! I will take a look. My only advice is to keep blogging and be active on twitter, chat to people, retweet etc.. be a ‘generous blogger’ and hope someone will reciprocate!

    I know exactly what you mean, I’m so bad for it. I always make sure I read my comments but when it comes to replying to them I’m the worst. Good luck with your challenge x

    I never used to comment on blogs because I always read the post and moved on but I’ve really taken to commenting on every blog I read that day. I never used to I used to think no one would reply (especially with bigger bloggers) as I have google+ commenting it’s easier for me to reply to people

      I so do not get Google+ lol.. it makes me feel like a serious technophobe so how you find that easier baffles me but yeah.. comments are what makes blogging worth it so I need to make more effort to get back to people who do leave them!

    Aww this is a lovely idea. I’ve always found you to be very good at replying on YouTube and instagram. It’s always nice to get a reply from someone who’s opinion you value, so I imagine this will go down a treat with your readers. Good luck! Xx

      That’s why I want to do it.. I am very hot on responding everywhere else I’ve just let it slide on my blog!

    I love replying back to comments I get on my blog, it actually makes me feel like someone, other than my mum, is reading the piece and have felt engaged enough to get involved, makes me feel like I’m going in the right direction and it’s a great way to get to know my readers, especially when the same users pop up commenting on a regular basis! Good luck with your challenge, you get SO many comments on your posts, I really hope you can keep up with them AND stay sane!

      Haha, I hear that! I see all of my comments I just don’t always respond.. it will be interesting to see whether I can get to them all.. fingers crossed!

  10. 2 February, 2015 / 9:35 pm

    This is a wonderful idea! I’ve recently been trying to do the same thing myself and now I’ve got into a little routine of doing it everyday, I’m finding it much easier to be consistent! xx

      well that’s what I do with YouTube so now I figure I should be able to hop on over here and do the same.. I usually only respond on recent videos though.. maybe that’s what I’ll end up doing here if it turns out to be more work than I anticipated haha

    I love that your doing this. I’m very new to blogging but I personally find it harder to interact on the likes of twitter. I do get very excited when somebody comments on my blog though, it feels more personal like that have really too interest in my post. I all fairness you get way way way more comments than me, so I can understand it could be hard to manage. Best of luck with this challenge πŸ™‚

      I get all of my comments via email so I see them ALL and it absolutely makes the blogging experience worthwhile.. without comments the numbers would mean a lot less! It wouldn’t feel like anyone was REALLY reading.

  12. 3 February, 2015 / 12:11 am

    you have a crazy amount of readers and followers. It is only normal that you don’t respond to everyone! We are all still here as we love your content! As a struggling 25 year old blogger myself, I love Watching your blog and YouTube channel grow from strength to strength!

      I just lose track and in truth I feel like if you respond to one you should respond to all but this will be a good test to see how much I can do if I try

    I agree twitter just seems easier to respond with lol. I can see how it gets difficult to keep up interaction with readers, especially when you have lots of followers πŸ™‚ My blog is relatively new and I find it difficult just trying to get regular posts up as well as working full time. I want to try and interact more as well though. You can only do what you can do I suppose!

      true but I try so hard on YouTube that I feel I’m letting the side down here a bit

  14. 3 February, 2015 / 5:53 pm

    I absolutely love both writing/reading blogposts. I don’t have that much traffic on my blog (www.allaboutevek.blogspot.co.uk) and write just for the fun! But as I don’t receive many comments I don’t find myself commenting on anyone else’s either! I know how much nice comments can mean so will make the effort to write them more! So Khila – great post & cute idea! Haha xxx

      It’s not TOO difficult as is on wordpress.. much better than blogger but there’s this thing where I go to the next page of comments and it moves all of my reponses to the top so I’m not sure who I’ve responded to :/
