Joining The F Group For Comments Sake

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 blogster@blogsire.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.

I'm an Aussie blogger who loves to blog and share everything that I've learned on my blogging journey, including blogging tips and ways to blog for money. I am also trying to make my way on YouTube. You can follow my progress by subscribing to My Bonzer Channel.

  1. I really am all for this idea. My only teensy issue with it is that I have run into a few circumstances where someone leaves me a good quality comment, and I follow to their site to find that they have an amazing blog on a subject, but it is something that I have no way to contribute to because I am not knowledgeable in that area. Like Forex marketing, for example. In those cases, I subscribe and watch for future posts that I will have something good to contribute, but at the same time, I feel like I am not returning the favor in a timely manner.

    I do have a badge for You Comment, I Follow, but I think that has more to do with removing the “no follow” coding on my site for building backlinks. :)

  2. Kristi, I can understand how a situation such as that might occur. May I suggest that in those situations you could perhaps email the blogger explaining how much you appreciate their comment and how you are waiting for the right post so as to leave a quality comment in return. I’m sure they would love that.

  3. @Kristi: Hi Kristi, You’ve made a valid point, but I’m sure even if this blogger is from an entirely different niche market, there could still be some common ground that some comments can take place. Like SEO, link building, blogging tips, these are common topics that everyone focuses on.

    @SireL Hi Sire, I really think what you have done is commendable taking your movement to a new level and I’m sure many will welcome this tweak. Thanks for entering me in the F Group Hall of Fame. Add this to your many talents -you have a way of coining nice names (besides the joke you pulled off recently) – it makes people want to join.

  4. No worries Peter, don’t forget to email those details so I can enter your blog in my Link Directory.

  5. I’m interested in joining the “F Group”. However, I would like to know first if it’s okay just to link to them, not necessarily but the badge.

  6. Sorry Lucas I’m not sure what you mean when you say “if it’s okay just to link to them”?

    1. I meant that if it’s okay to just link to the F Group homepage instead of putting the little button on my site. I’m not really fond of putting images and all that, so there. ;)

      1. Ah, my dear Lucas, how is one to know that you are one with the F Group if you do not display the badge of honor? :ponder_tb:

        Perhaps, you could design one that is more befitting, and I will add it to the one I already have and give people a choice?

        1. Oh. I’m so sorry but I am not a designer. Ah well, I guess I have to use the button you have. :) Check my blog out, it’s up!

          Lucass last blog post..Question and Answer Time (10 Sep 2008) – Answers

          1. It looks pretty good to me, so you are now a member of the F Gang. I’ve sent you an email asking for details to enter in my link directory.

  7. Looks like a whole lot of work when the blog starts to grow. Some people attract more than 20 or 30 comments per day.
    I also second Kristi, it is sometimes very difficult to find a recent post on a blog on which to comment. But I agree that if you follow the blogger for some time, it could be done.

    Oliviers last blog post..5 Tips to get the most out of your brainwave meditation session.

  8. Olivier, nothing in this world that is worth doing comes easy. Blogging is not as easy as some people choose to believe. Ask any good blogger and he will tell you that it involves a heck of a lot of work to maintain a consistently good blog.

    Also, out of the 20-30 comments, I think it is fair to say that a percentage of them can be considered of poor quality. Even ProBlogger Darren Rowse gets his inane 2-3 words inane comments. You could reciprocate with an inane comment of your own, which I would refrain from doing, or you would have it in your comment policy that such comments will not get reciprocation.

  9. This is a great idea. Comments do help motivate bloggers and opinions and views are shared.

  10. That is certainly true gina, and thanks for joining the F Group :smile2_ee:


  11. Twitter:
    I feel like Kristi, in that there are times when I’m not sure what to say if a topic is about something I know nothing about, but hey, I think it’s a great idea, and I’m already a dofollow blog, so I’ll play along. Course, that doesn’t give you free reign to make us all have to write on all your blogs, because I wouldn’t have commented on the ache post if my life depended upon it. :-)

    So, do we get to copy your badge?

    Mitchs last blog post..Since I Was On A Roll,…

  12. That’s what it’s there for and I am not sure what you mean by my ‘ache’ post. When did I do write that? :ponder_tb:


    1. Twitter:
      I meant “acne”. lol

      Mitchs last blog post..Since I Was On A Roll,…

      1. Yep, that makes a whole lot more sense than ‘ache’ lol


  13. Twitter:
    By the way, I’ve added the image onto my blog on the ride sidebar, but it doesn’t seem to want to stick around on individual posts for some reason. Weird.

    Mitchs last blog post..Optimizing Old Blog Posts

  14. No, where does it go? Anyway, it isn’t necessary to display it after every post. Don’t forget the details for the link directory.

    Edit: I see what you mean. That is weird. Have you tried moving it down at all? It shouldn’t create a problem as it is only an image with no coding attached.

  15. @Sire: This is true. I will keep it in mind. I was doing the email followup to comments, and found that didn’t get as positive a response as commenting on their sites, which is why I found the little “no good response” problem in the first place. But good advice!

  16. I know that a lot of people think I am full of BS, but I do occasionally come up with good advice. :wink_ee:

  17. just to let you know that commentluv has been updated to 2.1.5 and should resolve any issues reported.

  19. I’d love to be part of the F-Group. Tell me what to do next. I have 3 blogs I’d like to add, should I sign up separately for each?

    Is there a special code with the badge that identifies which blog we are?

    Thanks. Good to see friends here.

    DeBorah Beattys last blog post..Build a Tribe Today!

  20. Hi Deborah, nice of you to see the advantages of joining the F Group, which is really simple. All you need is to be a dofollow blog, display the badge and make the commitment to follow the commentator to their blog and reciprocate the comment. The badge merely signifies you are part of the group.

    I suggest you have a comments policy to let your readers know what you expect of them and what they can expect from you.

    Once you are done let me know the the details of your blog and I will add you to the F-Group Page as well as my Link Directory. You can email me at blogster@blogsire.com
