Turn Your Blog Comments Into Interesting Posts

Turn you blog comments into interesting posts.

If you are looking for something new to blog about but have no idea what the subject should be you might want consider turning the comments you leave in other blogs into a post or your might want to turn the comments you have received into a blog.Clip Art Commenting Idea

There are many ActiveRain members who realize the importance of commenting. They are not commenting for points. They are commenting to contribute to the conversation.

 Some will leave comments that show they are an expert on the subject, they want to drive traffic to their blog, they disagree with the writer or they simply enjoyed and appreciated the authors post.

Whatever the comment or the reason, if you find it interesting or worth repeating, why not turn it into a blog? Elaborate, contribute, disagree, agree or simply rewrite it to make it your own. 

 I am sure many bloggers have used comments received or comments left as subjects of their own blogs. The next time you are sitting at your computer and you need something to blog about, go to your blogs and find a comment that you liked, or didn't like, and make it your own.

Leaving comments should contribute to the conversation of the original blog, they should be to the point and they don't have to be long to get your point across. But if you want to elaborate on the subject, take that comment and make it a blog. Say what you couldn't say in a comment. Link back to where the comment originated from. Give reasons to support your comment. It is easy. You should be blogging about comments you leave and comments your receive.

I have one coming up Terrie. I had a blog about Tri-Tip and the comments led me to find a nice flank steak recipe which I plan on making soon.

Comments can be so much more than a few words tapped on to the screen. For me, they are often a way to another idea and always to a new conversation. Excellent post. Suggested.

Terrie - I've been inspired many times to write a post based on someone's comment - some of the best ideas come from all the different points of view in the Rain - great post, especially since we still have a few more days of the May Challenge  - I need all the ideas I can get! Suggested!

Doug ~ Right on! See it works. Comments always lead us to new and different ideas and recipes. Good luck with your new Tri-Tip recipe.

Emily~ Thank you! I am glad you agree. We can learn so much from comments. I get so many ideas from comments as well. They often lead us into completely different directions than where we thought we were going with particular ideas.

What was the old saying, one thing leads to's the conversation :)

Terrie:  I have to admit that I have had great ideas that have blossomed into blogs before!  I kind of felt like I was taking someone else's idea!

This is a really good idea - sometimes an entire post can be written about just one aspect of the conversation. As real estate pros, we might follow the conversation a little more easily than consumers who come here, so taking the time in another post to explain a term or concept or why something is controversial is a great idea.

I enjoy reading the comments as much as the original post.  You never know what you're going find in there and it is a great way to get some new ideas to create your own post.

If I feel that I am about to strongly disagree, I'll write my own post. Or if I about to write a novel of a comment.  You're right...turn it into a post.

John ~ So true, one thing always leads to another. Thank you.

Jane ~ I think many great blogs have been written after an idea came from another comment. It is not stealing, only if you copy it word for word!

Kristina~ Thank you for suggesting for a feature and congratulations on your "Thelma" feature today. So cute. And I am very happy this contest is nearing the end! I think we all get ideas from others. The trick is to make those ideas we get into our own.

Alison ~ Well said, taking one term or part of the conversation and making an entire post out of it will help consumers gain a better understanding of the topic being discussed!

Doug ~ Sometimes the comments are more interesting than the blog itself. I love a great dialog in the comments. We can learn so much sometimes. We can also spend way to much time on one post as well.

Chris Ann ~ I rarely write a comment that gets out of hand but I will write it in a draft mode to review it later. I would love to know just how many blogs were inspired after reading or leaving a comment.
