The sad truth about bloggers and blogging

I know I speak the truth in this article when it comes to blogging. The sad reality is many bloggers don’t care about your blog.

They skim your content and try to post the most constructive and accurate comment they can without reading the entire article.

Please understand I have also been known to “skim” through an article but I sometimes feel obligated to comment on all the blogs submitted to our social community.

I have come to realize it’s better to say nothing at all then to skim through an article.

This is the main reason I started my blogging community.

I wanted to create a community of bloggers that cared for one anther. I wanted to avoid your typical blog catalog link farm and wanted to energize the blogosphere with real people and real bloggers.

If you are dedicated enough to stay in the blogosphere and start analyzing the types of bloggers you want to meet you might have a chance at building some great relationships. This process can be really hard and at sometimes extremely frustrating.

Bloggers work hard to come up with unique content and interesting subjects to blog about. This is why it’s important for us the visitors to read their content and provide a nice comment that help build discussions within the post.

Make a difference next time you visit your favorite blog or blog community. Take the time to read the article, post a comment and socially share with your online friends. Don’t be that hypocrite loser blogger.

If you’re interested in joining a community that cares about it’s members than make sure to stop by over at Blog Engage. It’s a social community I developed for real bloggers.

It’s a community of people like me and you.

    I think that this is the truth since bloggers just care about there blog. They are tehre to read your post but that it is. Nothing more.

    What could tehy get if they care about your blog anyway?

      I think the point I was making here is if they don’t care then don’t comment. If they skim and try to comment that is also wrong. I know we are all strapped for time so perhaps in some instances this is okay I don’t know. I guess it’s all up to the blog author.

    What I would like to add is that there are still those, who simply looks for another link to his blog.

    So sad to see those commenters.. Because Google is not that stupid. There is already such a concept like “quality backlink”.

    You won’t build successful blog until you do something beyond simple link building.
    That’s where stands the concept of community.

    Blog Engage community at this stage gives unique opportunity to stand from the crowd. To show who you are on your early stage of blogging.

    And I hope this is just a beginning. Any successful community grows with years. I think I can call BlogEngage a succussful community. And I hope I will be able to go along with it through years.

      Hi iWoodpecker welcome to my blog is this your first comment? I agree with you many bloggers are looking for the fast fix and back link but as you already stated it’s a very poor quality back link so sometiems we have to ask our selves where we raw the line.

      I also hope to see you stick around and grow with our social community.

    When I started to read this post I thought to myself, I wonder if this is by the guy who runs the community I’ve just joined…

    Must buy a lottery ticket if my intuition is that finely tuned at the moment!

    • bbrian017 says:

      Hi Rob, If you joined blog engage then the answer woudl be yes. I started blog engage about 2.5 years ago.

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

    That is true Brian. It’s quite a sad fact but it keeps on happening time and time again.

      You know it really is a sad fact. But hopefully blogengage can help us avoid this sad reality and help us build stronger and real relationships with our readers and friends.

    Brian,
    You really have created a blogger community. The relationships extend beyond the pages of Blog Engage. The dream you had when you started the site has come to fruition.

    There’s no place like Blog Engage. Thank you.

      Hi Ileane I’m really happy you feel so positive about our social community. Also when I say our communtiy I mean it. Blog Engage is your community and my community.

      It’s every bloggers community and soon more and more bloggers will be aware of the true benefits we have to offer.

  6. Selurus says:

    Yes. Blogging is meant to be a social activity but it is turning into a commercial activity. Its really nice that you’ve set up blogengage to help bloggers meet up and socialize.

    Personally, I welcome people who don’t care about my blog and/or who want to skim. I hate spam, but if someone finds an interesting paragraph and wants to comment on it coherently, that’s fine.

    I guess I don’t have a lot of rules for what I think my readers should do on an ethical level — other than not making work for me by spamming, etc. I think it’s MY job to write blog posts that keep a visitor reading and inspires them to comment and come back. If I’ve only influenced someone enough to skim, that’s MY problem. 🙂

    Spammer just try to spoil the blogger community who just crazy for link, they have no means what written on the article, they means only the page rank and the keyword text link.

    I’ll admit I have skimmed before – who hasn’t? But for the most part I actually enjoy reading what others have to say. Despite the sad fact that a lot of people will not read your entire post and are only at your blog for a back link – there are those who do care what you have to say.

    Since joining up with Blog Engage I’ve already added 5 more blogs that I visit daily. The authors of those blogs are all knowledgeable in their respected fields and blog daily. I guess I just wanted to take a second and say thanks for the invite – and now I’m going to check out the rest of your site!
