My biggest flaw as a blogger is that I don’t comment enough on other blogs.
I read hundreds of blog posts a day and while I may have a reaction to them, I am usually too busy to comment on them.
Instead I either share them on my link blog and / or Twitter with every intention of revisiting them to comment.
I rarely get around to it.
Not commenting on other blogs is hurting me as a blogger.
While I may be sharing and twittering the content of bloggers that I follow and find interesting, I’m not a part of the conversation.
By not commenting, I’m not exposing myself to (no pun intended) the readers of the bloggers I follow. They, and the bloggers I follow, have little or no motivation to come to my blog because they don’t really know I exist.
After all, if you don’t speak up in a crowded room you will never be heard.
I’m also damaging my blog from a SERP point of view as ever comment not posted on another blog is one less incoming link for O’Flaherty.
Now I’ve shared my biggest flaw as a blogger with you, what’s yours?
