Just a little update on comments!

/ 27 comments

Hey girls ! Well, I don't like making posts like that at all, but unfortunately I have to, because some of my readers are really upset! It's about comments as you understand by the title!

You know those blog links under a comment right? I understand that you want to let people know about your blog, but please don't post those blog links! I personally don't have such a huge problem with that YET (as long as you don't post a single word, irrelevant to the topic sometimes, and then your blog link! that's plain rude and ridiculous!!), but some of my readers get annoyed by those links! So, since I respect my readers I have to do this!

I used to do that as well, I won't deny it! And I didn't think it was a bad thing, as long as I posted a comment to thank the blogger or to ask a question and not to advertise my blog! But at some point I read G. ' s blog post about comments, where she basically said that she gets annoyed by those blog links under comments (please read the whole thing if you want) and the reader's comments on this blog post and everybody was annoyed by those blog links as well ! I was like "oops, so many people were angry at me and at people who posted their blog link :/ " ! So, I apologized to G. and to everybody that reads her blog and I stopped doing this!

Trust me, I know that you want to get your blog out there, but there are much better ways to do it than posting a blog link under your comment! If you wanna know how just let me know! I'm no blogging expert for sure, but I've done some research lately and I've learned some things about blogging!

This is me telling you my own story! I'm talking to all of you like I would talk to a friend, so I don't feel the need to write typical lines like "I hope you don't get offended" and stuff like that! I'm writing this post because I don't want a part of my readers to get upset and another part of my readers to get hated!

So, from now on please don't post those blog links! I personally check every new follower to see if they have a blog anyway and I've found many wonderful blogs that way! I think that Disqus (I'm using their comment form) allows me to edit comments, so even if you post a blog link I'll edit out! I'm really sorry to say this, but unfortunately I have to!

(Ok, I don't want this to be the main post of the day, this is a beauty blog for God's sake, so I'll try to write a review or something as well)

  1. Of course links to let me know that you've tagged me or something like that on your blog are a completely different story! :) Those won't be moderated! :)

  2. lol you were the one that showed me how to link in the first place :)
    But I know what you mean, I am although a bit surprised that people would contact you being upset about it.

  3. I know LOL! I didn't think it was bad back then! They didn't contact me, we were just chatting on twitter and they told me that they didn't like it at all !

  4. Ah I know what you mean by that, it has happened to me a couple of times!
    You're so right to point it out ;)

    Although I'd love to know how you get more traffic to your blog, lol!!

  5. I don't have so many followers like some other blogs have, but I do get some comments with blog links, so I thought I would post this first, instead of moderating comments without any notice!

    I may do a blog post about it! :) xxx

  7. I'm thinking about doing a separate post, where everybody can post a link to their blog! That way you'll have all the blog links together without spamming! How about that? :)

  14. i don't get the big bruhaha about it honestly if someone posts a comment that actually shows they read the post being commented on, but it seems to be some huge deal to random people :-/ interesting

  15. You know what? If you do it once (for example on your first comment on a blog) then it's not so bad I guess! I don't have a problem with people getting their blog known through me, in the end if your blog is good and worth it, it will get and keep followers! I've done a few shout outs for blogs I like on twitter and I'm thinking about doing shout outs here too! I just consider blog links spamming, especially if somebody posts a word or something irrelevant like "fab post!" and then their blog link!

    Thank you sweetie :)

  16. More and more posts with blog links are like "nice post! thanks! come follow my blog at ..." ! Only a few people that post blog links actually comment on what the post says! So I think it is a big deal! :)

    Thank you so much for your feedback! :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. yeah, that type of shameless promotion would be highly ignorant and annoying
    indeed! They probably don't even read the piece, just spam with a link. I
    don't agree with that type for sure :)

  18. Personally I'm not too bothered about it if people leave a comment showing that they have read my post. It's when they say something generic like "Great Post" that it bugs me. I like to think of my blog as a little community of friend who share a passion about makeup so they post something like "nice post" I feel like they are just using my blog as a place to advertise there. And in fact, these people never bother to come back.

    I have to say though that Blogger has an awful comment system and usually people have to click on your username to find your blog so I understand why some people put it in their comments. But with blogs posted on other platforms, people just have to click on the username to go to their blog, so I find their link redundant. But as I said, as long as the comment is relevant to the post I don't mind.

    And I wasn't made at you for doing it. I'm actually glad you stumbled on my blog as I love chatting to you. :)

  19. I've seen a blogger with over 1,000 followers doing this everywhere! GREEDY!!!

  20. I think and know that it's great marketing to get your name out there as
    much as possible but dang, at least read the original material and note it.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I wish Blogger would have something like " X's recent blog post" ... that's GENIUS!! You can see who has a blog and what they've posted! I've found several good blogs through your blog that way! :)

    You know I had no bad intentions and I never posted "Great post! Follow me at.. " ;) xxx I love chatting with you as well :)

  22. I use the CommentLuv plugin for that and I love it. It's a great way to give back to your readers who have a blog as well and I find some great blogs that way too. There is a version for blogger actually, you can find it here: http://comluv.com/download/commentluv-blogger/ I don't know how it works as I use the version for wordpress but it's worth looking into if you're interested in it.

    And I've never thought that you had bad intentions or that you only wanted to advertize. Your comments are always relevant to the post and you're a really nice and lovely girl. I could never think bad of you. :)

  23. The version of comluv for blogger works only for IntenseDebate, not for Disqus :( Thank you though :)

    Awwwwww Gio, the same goes for you! You're a nice and lovely girl and I love that you always reply to comments!!!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oops. I think Intense Debate and Disqus look a bit similar and I always get them confused lol. What a shame though, hopefully they'll release a version for Disqus one day. :)

    Aww thank you, you are making me blush.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I hope so, because I think it's a really cool service! I'll e-mail them to let them know I'd love comluv for Disqus! If they get many requests maybe they'll do it! ;)

    I mean everything I said! You don't have a Google Friend Connect thing on your blog, because it's on Wordpress, but judging from all the comments you get you have many followers, yet you reply to EVERY SINGLE COMMENT! Do you know that you're one of the few popular bloggers who does that? I have a specific blog in my mind that has 600+ followers and the girl NEVER replies to any of the comments! That's rude! Somebody took the time to read your blog and comment, write a "thank you" AT LEAST!
