The 31 weeks challenge to a Better Genealogy Blog over at Tonia’s Roots for this week requires contacting a blog reader. Specific action items include:
- Spend 10-15 minutes connecting with your readers, either via email or comments.
- Make sure at least one contact is with a new reader.
- If you don’t have many comments on your blog yet, then spend 10-15 minutes visiting other genealogy blogs and leave “relevant, helpful, and genuine comments.
Being a new genealogy blog, I don’t get many comments (I need to work on this!), but I love all of the ones I get. Each is like…a sparkly-wrapped present with chocolate inside (or something else equally awesome)! Due to that, I usually do spend the time to respond to each and every comment I get with a thank you or an answer if a question was put to me. I also make a point of visiting my favorite blogs or reading them through my google reader on a daily basis. Any posts that are helpful or interesting also receive a comment from me because I know how much I love to get comments, and I figure if I took the time to read it, it’s good enough that I should take the time to say thank you for it!
