You must know about Manners but do you know its not only needed in day to day life, Its equally needed in blogging and online interactions. Here I am going to talk about Manners in Blogging.
If you are a blogger then you are one of member of blogosphere and its good to have a healthy relationship with other members of blogosphere(normally bloggers, marketers etc). And to achieve this you need to be very humble, kind and have some good manners.
Here I am mentioning few Manners you must have to keep your blogging relationship healthy :-
Be Good To Everyone
If you are blogging then its obvious that you are gonna meet a number of bloggers, newbies and other guys. You might get guys who keep on asking their problems all the time, What you need to do is to be generous and don’t get irritated. Try to solve thier query and help them as much as you can.
You might be thinking that what will you get by helping and solving their queries without getting irritated?
So let me tell you that you will get respect from them and they might be mentioning your name in their blog posts which will increase your popularity among bloggers and others.
Don’t Comment For Just Getting Backlinks
This one is one of the most common mistakes being done by bloggers. Never do comment just to get backlinks, Do comment only when you have something to say about the topic or if you want a discussion on that topic.
Initially you don’t realise but if you keep posting cheap comments always then a time will come when no one will be going to approve your comment on their blogs.
Instead of writing cheap comments if you do write valuable comments then Blog owners love to approve your comment and also you will be noticed by others for writing awesome comments.
Reply To Comments On Your Blog
Another most common mistakes done by bloggers as they don’t think that the comments need responses also. I suggest DO reply to comments even you get a negative comment, Don’t get frustrated and reply them kindly. Never reply aggressively because it can result into losing readers. I am not telling you to reply each and every comment but do reply to the comments which really need your response. No Responses to your reader’s comment means NO respect to them. So don’t miss this out.
Don’t Take Yourself As Superior
However you are very nice blogger you should not think that you are superior. Always do respond to emails, fb messages which you get from your fellow bloggers or newbies. Most of the big bloggers even don’t reply to fb messages or emails, I personally experienced with few of biggie bloggers.
Any way, I suggest not to ignore even a newbie because if you help them when they need you the most then they will never forget you and this way you are winning audience for your blog and for your personal branding. These all will give a big profits in the future.
Your superiority is not going to loose by replying to the messages, emails and helping others. So Don’t ignore emails or messages from your fellow or newbie bloggers.
Never Hesitate To Give Credits
When we write blog posts and use other’s images or any particular statement then never hesitate to give them credit for using it. For example I am using image that i took from hollabackhealth Dot Com So I gave them credit as “image credit:hollabackhealth.com”. Similarly, you should also Do this.
These are the normal manners every bloggers should have because these help you having healthy relationship with all the fellow and newbie bloggers. These also Helps you for personal branding as well as for your business branding.
BE POLITE TO EVERYONE!
