I’ve been saying this for a while now, but never really officially put it out there—which is maybe why I haven’t kept to it— but I want to comment more on all of your posts. I know I’m a bit infrequent when it comes to commenting, which like ya’ll are amazing enough to read and comment on my posts.
My schedule has just been everywhere lately. But in order to get better about commenting and staying more up-to-date with everyone’s content (instead of just binge commenting), I’m going to set some post reading/commenting goals. Check them out below:
1. Dedicate a minimum of thirty minutes each day to reading my followed sites.
I think this is pretty self-explanatory. I’m basically giving myself a minimum amount of time everyday that I need to sit down and just read through everyone’s recent posts. I will probably do this at night, you know just that thirty minutes before I actually try to fall asleep and am just laying in bed on my phone.
2. Leave meaningful comments on the posts I read.
I don’t want to just be reading everyone’s posts and doing nothing or just liking, I want to be commenting because I know from experience it takes time to create that content and having someone comment on it makes you feel great. And I want these comments to be meaningful and relevant not just like “nice post!”
3. Reply to every comment that gets posted on my site.
I am usually pretty good about this, I know lately I’ve maybe been commenting a day or two later. I usually read posts, comment, and reply to comments from the app on my phone. It’s just an easier format for me, but I’ve also been using a lot of data so I’ve been turning that off, meaning I don’t see comments till I get home with wifi and have a bunch piled up. Sometimes I’m just lazy, okay?
