If You Want Comments On Your Blog Comment On Other Blogs

The first time someone left a comment on my blog I ran around with excitement, the first time someone bought my book I could barely control myself and the first time someone left a testimonial about said book on Amazon (without me having to stalk them) I literarily died! For each of those acts I was excited. They encouraged me to continue evolving as a writer and a blogger. So whenever I go to a book signing event I try to do the same by buying as many books as I can. When I go on a blog site I strive to leave a comment because I know what it means to the blogger…and even when I am accosted in the parking lot by a random stranger to buy their latest mix-tape compilation, I purchase it (if I have the money). I feel I owe it to them because when I was in their position someone else did the same for me. Funny enough it is this cycle of giving and receiving that has allowed me grow in my personal business.
The sad thing however, is that many people are only interested in the part of the cycle that benefits them financially. They focus on it like a hawk. But from my experience the more you look to give the more you receive. Through commenting on other peoples blogs I have found ways to make my blog better. Through buying other people books I have learnt additional ways of marketing my books. All in all, by patronizing others I have fortuitously learnt ways to get others to patronize me.
So if you want people to read your blog, then read other peoples blogs
If you want people to comment on your blog, comment on other peoples blog
If you want people to attend your events, attend other peoples events
If you want people to buy your products, buy other peoples products
Because, whatever you want for yourself you have to be willing to give it to others
Its the magical cycle of life.
