10 Tips on How to Get Regular Comments on Your Blog Posts

Hello my dear folks!  How are you all doing?  One of the most common questions my fellow bloggers ask me is how I get regular comments.  Fujinsei is by no means popular, but I do enjoy regular comments as soon as my posts are published.  Sometimes they’re just one or two comments per post, but when I get lucky they can reach up to hundreds with the discussion lasting for months.

I want to say that it’s because of my magnetic personality that I get regular comments, but the truth is that I blackmail people to read my posts and comment or else. . . .Kukukuku.

EVIL~
EVIL~

Just kidding!
…or maybe not. 😉

I’d never encourage you to threaten others to comment on your blog posts, so I’m going to show you a more. . .er, “civilized” way.  Here we go:

10 Tips on How to Get Regular Comments on Your Blog Posts

1. Befriend other bloggers.
Don’t be afraid to reach out to other bloggers.  Introduce yourself and let them know that you blog about the same topics.  Show a genuine interest in getting to know them as fellow bloggers.  If you’re a newbie, associating yourself with a much more established blogger will open doors to connections that may help your blog get exposed to a wider audience.  By befriending other bloggers and working hard to deepen and strengthen that friendship, you’re simultaneously creating an exclusive support group of bloggers that will help your development as a blogger.  Your blogging buddies will also be the first ones to comment on your posts.

Some word of caution, though.  Make sure that when you’re befriending other bloggers, you’re genuinely befriending them and not just because you’re desperate to use their connections for your own selfish benefit.  Make “give-and-take” your mantra when befriending fellow bloggers.  If you “take” something from them, be prepared to “give” at least twice as much back.  If all you do is take and take and take, well, don’t be surprised when you suddenly find yourself an outcast.

I can’t emphasize how grateful I am from the bottom of my heart to all of my wonderful blogging buddies.  You already know who you are, Friends of Fujinsei!  You never fail to motivate and inspire me to be a better blogger.  I treasure the friendship and community you constantly grant me.  And to my fellow members of the crazy Lyndere Club, you continue to stick with me through all of my insanity because of course you’re as much cuckooheads as me.  But that’s why we rock, yeah?  And also to my other clubs Gundam Sisters and NinjaPirateers.  Wohoo!

2. Visit & comment on other blogs.
Don’t just wait there like a frog on a log and hope for the best for a comment.  Take the initiative to visit other blogs and comment on their posts.  Use your reader and exploit the tag feature to discover similar blogs.  I mainly use the tags “Anime”, “Manga”, “Otaku”, “Japan”, and similar keywords to discover other aniblogs.  Of course, like what I said in #1, you have to show genuine interest.  Focus your comment on their posts.  Never write a comment like this:

Hey, blogger.  Visit my blog at biggestanimedouchebag.com.  Comment too, okay?  I insist that you comment.  <insert narcissistic description of self>  I’ll be waiting.  It would be great if you could also spread the word about my blog to your followers.  I’m sure they’ll love my blog as much as you will if you visit AND comment on my blog.  Thanks.  Bye!  And oh, by the way, great post.

How insincere and disrespectful.  And how selfish!  What a huge douchebag.  Remember that whenever you comment on others’ posts, it’s about them and not about you.  We bloggers may never meet each other in person, but we can smell egotistic selfishness and desperation from stinking typing fingers from miles away.

And when you do comment on other blogs, always remember to be genuine.  I can’t emphasize this enough.  If you successfully do this, you’ll interest these bloggers and make them want to be your friend.  After all, if you commented on their blog, there’s a chance that you’ll do it again.  And because they want you to keep commenting on their blog, they’ll also comment back on your blog to honour the unspoken “give-and-take” rule of the blogging world.  But if they’re being douchebags and ignore you, just forget about them and move on.  They’re not worth your time.  Just write their names and blog addresses in your cursed black book of rude bloggers.  You never know.  That list may come in handy one day.  Just saying.  Kukukuku.

3. Ask for a comment.
Well, duh.  If you want a comment, ask for it.  It’s the most straight-forward and arguably the most effective.  But of course it’s not always as simple as saying “please comment on my post”; although that works, too.  Depending on the approach you take, you might end up sounding desperate which will hurt you rather than help you.  Perhaps a more subtle method and one that I often use is “What do you think?”  Another one is “Do you agree?”  Remember that it’s more tasteful to sound confident and ask for a genuine opinion, rather than sound like you’re begging because you’re desperate for comments.

4. Make commenting easy and accessible.
Find a comment-friendly theme or format your already existing one to make the comment box visible to your readers.  The most common place for the comment box is immediately at the end of your post.  I don’t know about you, but I’ve encountered plenty of blogs who make commenting very complicated.  Some place the comment box at the least visible area within their blogs.  Some make you click on another post/page.  Some require you to follow their Twitter, FB pages, other social media accounts, or to subscribe to their e-mail lists.  Some will have surveys you’re required to complete.

What a hassle.  I just leave and don’t bother to visit again.  When I want to comment, I want to be able to just type it all up and click “post comment”.  That’s it.  I don’t want to jump hoops of fire just so I can comment on your blog.  Most free themes automatically take care of this, but it’s your responsibility to check its accessibility.  Oh, and don’t forget to check if your comment box is turned on.  Sometimes unbeknownst to you, it’s turned off and you wait in vain for comments that will never come.

5. Write interesting posts that have specific focus.
This is a given.  If you write boring posts, nobody will read them, much less comment on them.  It’s also better to write posts that have specific focus.  Be clear about your opinions because they’ll either agree or disagree with you.  If you’re too general, what are they supposed to comment on?  Focused posts attract focused comments; general posts attract general comments.  Which do you want to get?  Focused comments that encourage more in-depth discussions or general comments that peter out after a reply or two?  Think about it.

6. Establish yourself as an active voice in the community that you belong in.
This takes time and effort, but it’s worth it.  I’m not presumptuous to say that I have the strongest voice in the community.  I’m not even close to that level yet.  However, I make sure that within the small blogging circle that I belong in, my fellow bloggers know my name and my blog, and that I’ll be one of the first bloggers they’ll recommend to their friends.  The key here is to make them remember who you are.  Identify your blogging style and work hard to polish it.  Aim to be an expert or someone close to that level on a particular field.  Be consistent and firm on what kind of blogger you are.  I personally still have a LOOOOOOOOOOOONG way to go, but the gradual progress I’m making from a newbie aniblogger who doesn’t know anyone in the community to the blogger that I am today still makes me shake my head in amazed disbelief.

7. Be original.
Don’t be a second-rate copycat.  Of course it’s difficult to be completely original when it comes to blogging, but try to be as original as you can.  Don’t just rip off exactly what you read from other blogs.  Perhaps you can edit your own images.   Provide new insights about the most common topics.  Disagree with the mass.

I’m very proud of my Fujinsei Kempo Series, and I argue that it’s what differentiates me from other anibloggers.  I’m not ashamed that these posts are outrageous; on the contrary, I work hard to make them as outrageous as possible without sounding like a crazy moron.  I also write Blogging Tips posts, which isn’t new nor original—oh no, not at all—but I make it a bit more original by fashioning them specifically for otaku bloggers like myself.  I also don’t consider myself an anime reviewer unlike many other otaku bloggers.  On this site’s About PageI never claim Fujinsei as an anime review blog.  I label it as an “entertainment blog”.  I’m not afraid of the outrageous; I embrace it.  I threw away “the proper way of writing an anime review” out of the window a long time ago.  This gives me the freedom to be as original, as creative, and as flexible as I want in writing my posts.  As a result, I garner frequent comments not only about what I’m writing but also on how I write my posts.

8. Post regularly.
Try to post at least once a week, if you can.  More if you’re just starting out.  Exploit the “Schedule” function on your post editor.  I personally use it on all of my posts.  If you’re a new blogger, I strongly recommend that you focus more on writing posts and building your archives first rather than spending all of your time inviting visitors and followers to an empty blog.  If you already have a considerable amount of posts, then that’s the time that you can focus on connecting with other bloggers and hopefully obtain followers and regular commenters.

Posting regularly accomplishes at least 4 things.  First, it signals to fellow bloggers that there’s still a blogger behind your blog with whom they can connect with.  Second, it signals to search engines that your blog is not “dead”, so it’ll rank more favourably in search results compared to abandoned websites.  Third, your posts will appear more frequently on your followers’ feed readers/mailboxes.  As a result, they’ll remember who you are and more likely to comment because you’re now familiar to them.  Fourth, more posts in your archives means more opportunities for additional comments, which means they spend more time on your blog.  Of course, there are a lot more benefits of posting regularly than what I included here.

9. Be nice & approachable.
I’m not always a nice person, but I do my best to be one.  Not everyone appreciates my strong opinions, outrageous posts and style of humour.  However, it’s a fact that I’m a cheerful person (most of the time) and that my cheerfulness shows in my writing.  I think that this is what encourages people to comment on my posts because they don’t fear me suddenly biting their heads off.  I also make it a point to reply to comments, and not be one of those big-ass corporate hotshot bloggers who never reply.

However, I’ve been known to bare my fangs to pinheads who think that they can insult and bully me just because I appear nice and approachable. . .and easy.  I fight back, just to let you know.  I prefer to use a more diplomatic way of handling things of course, but if that fails, I’m not afraid to crack my knuckles and jump into battle, if need be.  You’ve been warned.

10. Be patient.
Unless you’re a celebrity or have already established yourself as a reputable blogger, don’t expect to get regular comments right away.  It takes time to make your blog visible to more readers, and of course a lot of effort to build connections with fellow bloggers who will usually make up the majority of your regular commenters.  Stop whining.  Roll your sleeves and do the work.  And most importantly, don’t ever give up.

And that’s it for my 10 Tips on How to Get Regular Comments on Your Blog Posts.  Some of you may think they’re too general or too common, and yes, they may be.  However, I did my best to infuse each of them with a bit of my personal experiences that I hope will be of some help to those of you who need it.  I’m not an expert blogger; just a shady one you’re not even sure is sane—even I’m not sure—but it’s a fact that I do enjoy regular comments from almost all of newly published posts.

How about you?  Do you know some tips or tricks to get regular comments?  If yes, I would be delighted if you could share them with me!

Finally, I wish all of us good luck on our blogging journey.  Goodness knows we need it.  I think that the most important thing I can say is to just enjoy and keep on blogging.  Cheers!

  2. Thanks for the advice! I’ve been writing my Cherry Blossom Stories Blog for a few years and I get comments now and then but some posts don’t get any comments.

  3. . . . These are things I often forget or take for granted, so thanks for the reminder. I realize this comment is a bit late, but I try not to let time bother me so much. Like you, I believe it’s extremely important to establish a voice in the community, whether that’s by being iconic, writing good/memorable content, popping up everywhere, or COMMENTING. It’s all about being social.

    1. Yay! Thanks for the comment, Takuto. Best comment I read today. I really appreciate it. Indeed, even I write this kind of blogging tips, that doesn’t mean that I’m an expert. We’re all learning as we go. What I love the most is the community we have here. We have a lot of personalities here, but overall it’s an awesome community to belong in. I love it. It’s the best anime community I’ve ever belonged in since becoming an active fan online. Take care always. Cheers!

  4. You bring up a really important factor in #3. I’m perfectly fine with people requesting for comments, even though so many people end stuff with ‘please like, comment and subscribe’ that it’s starting to just get tuned out. The keys are not sounding desperate and not sounding like you’re only commenting for the sake of plastering ‘please comment on my stuff’. on other people’s blogs. Like putting a comment on a blog post that is something entirely generic like ‘Cool! Check out my stuff at (URL) and be sure to like and comment!’ When your advertisement for your blog is longer than your input on mine and the input in question could apply to any blog post, I don’t feel compelled to even visit the blog. Plus, I look forward to every comment that I get, and seeing one of those pop up just makes me disappointed.

    I’m pretty shy, so actively commenting on other blogs makes me nervous sometimes. I still get some comments, but I definitely want to try to be more active in the overall community. Great tips!

    1. My thoughts exactly. Excellent points. I agree with feeling dismayed when a comment contains a majority of blog ad rather than a genuine opinion about my post. I won’t feel like visiting that commenter’s blog, if that’s the case.

      Don’t be so shy. We’re all mostly nice here in this community. Besides it’s super fun becoming friends with fellow anime fans. You learn so much and get exposed to many interesting stuff you wouldn’t encounter if you’re just blogging by yourself. Keep on blogging. Thanks for dropping by and sharing your opinions. Cheers!

      By the way, if you’re interested in connecting with ther anibloggers, I invite you to participate in the monthly blog carnival that I’m hosting. It’s basically a meet-and-greet event where you can submit a post of yours and discover interesting posts by other bloggers. The next carnival will be on June 6. It runs for 1 week. Consider joining us, if you’re available.

  8. Wow! 😀
    Regular posts will bring you regular commenters. That’s evident with my blog. A simple indication that you exist in their newsfeed will get their attention. Sometimes even your topic is not their real interest. Curiousity will bring them to your blog. 👍

    Befriending other bloggers. Yes! Last 2015 I met bunch of bloggers here in wordpress.. then I am surprised that most of them are gone now! 😲 some quit blogging.. on hiatus…or just cant prioritize blogs… anibloggers are the ones left in my newsfeed.. oh gosh! What happened…befriending satifies the need if belongingness of a person…i think theyve become satisfied then they left coz it meet their needs.. i mean they dont see blogging as a COMMITMENT. It differs in that case. What will made you stay here is commitment. Seriously.. i know what i am saying.

    .interacting with fellow bloggers must be always sincere not only for the sake of increase of followers… sometimes i do randomly promoting my blog.. if they dont respond its okay.. but dont force people…followers will come to you.. be patient.. yes you are right…

    Sharing is caring — the prime mantra of internet people.. what you give is what you get..

    Just do what you love. Be kind. Have faith. You’ll just see that you are there already.

  10. Dead on as usual! I would also add that making sure to be following other people’s blogs that are similar to your interests is a good idea because you get to see how they set up the website as well. Having a blog that is difficult to meander is no good. I love looking at how are people set up their website. I learn so much from the other bloggers I follow! It’s also good to see what other people are writing about to get ideas for your blog. By that I mean I can’t count the number of times people mention a anime or manga I’d never heard of and I thought to myself, “Hmmmm… Maybe I should try watching that.” Whether I like it or love it I always end up with some writing material!

    1. Yes! I agree. Thank you. That’s why I emphasize to make the effort of reaching out to other blogs or even just visiting their blogs and reading their posts. You learn so much by observing how other bloggers blog. If you focus too much on your own blog and refuse to visit other blogs, you’re missing out on so much learning opportunities to better yourself as a blogger. Good point. Indeed. Even someone like who have been watching anime for almost my entire life still follows recommendations from more recent anime fans. Especially since sometimes I tend to focus too much on more mainstream series, and I end up ignoring the lesser known ones. Anyway, thanks for dropping by and sharing your views. I appreciate it. Cheers!

  11. Hahaha, interesting post. I wonder how many people will use this for their benefit (I think quite a lot people as I feel like a lot of bloggers are… desperate for comments)

    Well, I think one reason your blog is that known, because of your translations and the simple but nice layout of the website. Important and popular posts are always at the top – I think this can be a factor too. If I see a chaotic blog I wouldn’t be eager to comment either.

    I remember my blog used to be… very popular because of my provocative posts about the KPOP industry. Since I wasn’t in the fandom anymore, my posts ceased, obviously. But I’m not eager to get comments. Especially now, as I was VERY hurt by people in other blogs I commented on because of petty reasons, so I stopped doing that entirely. That I still comment on your blog despite my resolve to not comment/post on anything anymore is unusual for me^^” I guess it’s a good think you and the other bloggers and especially other commentators are reasonable and mature.

    Liked by 1 person

    1. Thanks. Ahaha. Given that I’m not a blogging expert, it’s interesting that people still read my blogging tips. Perhaps because I gear towards my fellow otaku bloggers like myself.

      Hmmmm. Maybe. . .I’m currently on a translation hiatus, but yes my DGS translations are still some of the most popular posts in my blog. Although the majority of those people are not bloggers, so they don’t really comment. They just read and leave. Although I receive mostly e-mails about my DGS translations, not really comments. Not that I’m complaining, though. Not everyone wants their comments to be visible for everyone to see. And thanks very much. I’m satisfied with my blog’s current layout, although we never know. I may grow tired of it one of these days and change it. We’ll see.

      Aaaaaw. Sigh. That’s one of the downsides of being a blogger who has a strong opinion. Not everyone will agree with you, and because it’s the Internet, people are not really afraid to say hurtful things to others because they think that they’ll never meet them in personal life. Unfortunately, I’m not immune to attacks similar to what sounds like you experienced.

      And anyway, it seems that you really have no intention of blogging about K-POP anymore. I just want to remind you of my earlier offer. If you change your mind about blogging again, you’re more than welcome to blog here with me. Just message me anytime. But of course only if you feel like it. Ahahaha! I’m not always reasonable or mature, but I try to be. But thanks very much. I appreciate it. Thanks for dropping by. Take care. Cheers!

  12. Totally agree, Arria! I personally view reciprocity as one of my most important (if not most important) blogging networking principles, which governs basically how I run my blog and how much I interact with and comment on other people’s posts.

    I would also add in a side qualification – I think its also important to not only acknowledge bloggers’ comments (e.g. by liking a comment), but also reply to it. Even a simple ‘thank you for reading’ shows a lot about you (the blogger) as a person, and it signals an appreciation of the effort of that person making the comment – someone who bothered to read and write down what they think. That takes both time and effort! xD

    1. Thanks, Shiro. Excellent point. Acknowledgement is the first step towards building relationships between bloggers, even friendship. And now that I think about it, you’re right. It shows a lot about your character on how you handle comments. I don’t always reply to every comment, especially if there’s really nothing to reply to, but I “like” just to acknowledge that I’ve read the comment.

      As for reciprocity, I agree with you. But I also think it’s about respect and appreciation. I reciprocate mainly because I appreciate the effort done for me. But I guess that applies to the rest of us.

      Anyway, thanks a bunch for dropping by & sharing your opinions with me. I appreciate it. Cheers!

  13. I think the biggest factor is about the topic and even there it depends on the small things. For example I blog about relationship and families between “western” people and Chinese taking my on experiences in a “wmaf” thing (white male Asian female). My blog is running well but by no means a huge thing. However blogs with the same topic with the “AMWF” (Asian male white female) focus get much more attention in the world of the crazy Internet. I am not complaining but it is interesting that relative new blogs with that focus with just few posts can reach 50k views within few months where as it took me few years :p

    1. Good point. Even if you follow tips and tricks other bloggers use, it doesn’t always mean that you’ll get the same results. But I think that it’s better that we do something positively and aim for success from hard work rather than depend on gambling for an instant jackpot. It’s more realistic that way. And anyway, at least you can say that you have experience and you’re still blogging up to this day. That shows that your in it for the long run. Compare that to others who may have awesome fireworks at the very start and then suddenly peter out into obscurity. Anyway, thanks for dropping by and sharing some of your experiences. I appreciate it. Keep on blogging. Cheers!

    1. Ahahaha! Really? I didn’t realize that it might look like that to others. But it doesn’t sounds like such a bad idea. You clicked on it, didn’t you? 😉

      Matthew? I know a few Matthews. Who are you talking about?

    1. You’re very welcome. Well, I can’t really give a definite answer because each of us is different and we get inspired differently. I suggest you read this old post of mine “How I Get Blog Post Ideas”: https://fujinsei.com/2015/07/04/how-i-get-blog-post-ideas-anime-manga-edition/

      As for your English level, my only suggestion is to improve it by studying. There’s no shortcut in learning a language. You have to study in order to learn it. I understand your frustration, but be patient. English is not my first language either. You’ll get better with practice.

  17. I always have trouble with the ‘regular posting’ part of blogging. With work and my other writing projects, time slips away.

    This tips are great and I’ll try to keep a few of them in mind for the future!

    1. I strongly recommend that you use the “schedule” function. When I’m super busy with my personal life, I mostly only have 1 night every week or sometimes per month to write posts. I write like a madwoman and then schedule them. Your blog will keep on pumping posts even when you’re not actually online. Anyway, I’m glad that you find these tips helpful. Thanks for dropping by. Good luck on your projects and keep on blogging. Cheers!

  18. This is a useful post, especially when it comes to the point about patience. It’s far to easy to take a “I want it now” approach and forget that things take time to build.
    Like an eejit though, I kept trying to click on biggestanimedouchebag.com. I honestly thought that my thumb was just missing it on the phone screen …

    1. Thank you, Matt. Indeed, you’re right. It’s very easy to want results instantly, especially when surrounded by more successful blogs. And then when new bloggers are disappointed with the results they’re getting or lack thereof, it’s sad that they just stop blogging altogether.

      Ahahaha! Sorry about that. It was just an example. It doesn’t exist. . .well, when I last checked it. But who knows, someone might take that domain someday. We never know. Anyway, thanks for dropping by. Cheers!

    1. Thank you. And well done that you’re earning an income from blogging. Mine’s just enough to pay for the domain registration at the moment. But good for you. And thanks for dropping by. Keep on blogging. Cheers!
