I’ve decided that it was time to give the newly named F Group a little plug. This is the name given to a group of bloggers who are striving to increase the amount of quality comments on their blogs. To be part of the movement you have to make a commitment to yourself, that you will endeavor to follow the commentator to their blog and to reciprocate with a comment of your own.
To deter form comment spam I urge you to set up a Comment Policy that will stipulate what sort of comments will be accepted as worthy of reciprocation. To be part of the group you will need to let others know that you belong by displaying a badge such as the one displayed in this post. That and letting them know that you are a ‘do follow’ blog should encourage them to leave a comment. The badge should link to a post within your own blog that explains to the reader the benefits of leaving a comment on your blog.
I would also like to reward those who take this important step to increase their blog interaction by submitting their link to the F Group page, thereby getting one of those all important one way links. I will also enter those participating bloggers to my WassupBlog’s link directory, thereby getting another all important one way link.
So far, Peter of Work At Home Ideas, is the only one that I know of who is displaying the badge and following the rules and so I have taken the liberty of entering him in the F Group Hall Of Fame, so to speak. Peter, if you email me with your details for the Link Directory at email@example.com I will enter your blog for you, ensuring you get that one way link.
If anyone else wants to take advantage of being part of the F Group, leave a comment with a link to your blog displaying the badge and upon approval, and once you have emailed me with your details, I will place your link in the link directory and the F Group page. Before you go, just remember that the most important reason for doing this is to encourage people to leave a comment before they leave your blog.
