Seems like the simple word blog became so complicated to some of the minds of todays business owners….

I like medium size. Somehow some blogs when it gets too popular, they stop answering their comments and to me that is not cool. So no matter where you at in your ladder, you should not stop engaging or answering your comments.

My comment:

Hi Angela,
You have done a fantastic job of explaining what blogging is and I love the graphics you use in this post. My favorite is the WordPress, Genesis, Studio Press one – very cute.

Thanks so much for the mention Angela! I’m so pleased to be on your list.

These three guys share their YouTube tips each week and in this video one of the tips talks about using a formula to find your active subscriber base. 

It’s a great idea to develop a formula like this but I don’t think it will work for every channel.

Disqus comments are becoming more popular for bloggers today than ever before. Which comment system do you prefer and why? Read what other bloggers say.

Ileane Smith's insight:
Ileane Smith of BasicBlogTips.com
“I’m a big fan of CommentLuv, and in fact there was a time when I worked closely with Andy Bailey as the Official CommentLuv Ambassador. However, I bit off more than I could chew in that role and eventually I had to step down. Around the same time I decided to stop giving “Luv” to my commenters and ending up trying to explain why I made the decision in this post If You Wait for Perfection You Might Miss the Boat I’m still not sure if people understand what I was going through at the time because I believe my situation was somewhat unique. Let me try to explain, although I still use the plugin, I turned off the LUV back in May 2013, yet I continue to get traffic from people who see my blog listed as a DoFollow commenting blog.  It’s pretty frustrating, because even when I did have the LUV turned on, most of the comment links were not DoFollow. So what started off as a beautiful thing turned into a but pain because I spent hours moderating comments every day. I know there were solutions like adding additional plugins but that was the last thing I wanted to do. All in all I don’t regret using CommentLuv, but I do regret the fact that there are so many bots and spammers out there that will do anything for links that in the end are just a big waste of everyone’s time. It’s such a shame that we have to load our blogs down with plugins just to have a normal conversation with a real person.
 
I never used Disqus comments on my blog so I can’t give you any feedback there. Currently I use the native WordPress commenting system along with Google + comments. As I mentioned in the blog post, it’s not a perfect solution, but it will have to do for now.”  - Ileane Smith.
