Yesterday, I wrote a blog post about ‘Save Money Without Coupons | Manager’s Specials‘ on my personal blog…
On Facebook Larry & I created a group called ‘Share The Blog Love’, to help others including ourselves to syndicate and get comments on their blog posts and videos.
So naturally, I posted my blog post which is not just about saving money in general on food, but how to do so on organic and all natural foods.
My two buds Larry and David were kind enough to like my posts in Facebook, but there were no comments on Facebook or my blog…
So, I called Larry out, literally. “Hey buddy, where’s the blog love?” At first he thought I was talking about the comment I had on his blog that needed approval, but in reality I was talking about the lack of commenting on my blog. Dude where’s the love?
Larry says something to the effect of, “Well, Jamie… Ya know Dave and I were talking about that, we don’t go shopping, so we don’t really know what to say…”
I say to him, “Okay Larry, I have a solution… There are times I go to your blog or Dave’s and other people’s blogs and I may not have a personal interest in the subject being shared that day… However, I think not only who could use this info that I know, but how can I contribute to this, provide feedback and/or add to what was said.”
“Larry, you don’t do the shopping so you don’t care, but doesn’t your wife do the shopping?” Larry said, “Yes.”
“Okay, so don’t you want your wife to be smart with the money you guys have been blessed with?” I got another yes…
“So Larry, couldn’t you leave a post that this info would be useful to your wife and you will pass it on, etc., not to mention there are people probably on your Facebook page that would like to save money on a monthly budget they have to have such as food and personal care items, right?”
He agreed again and said I have a point.
So it’s that simple. When you go to friend or colleagues post and you know nothing about the subject or don’t have an interest in the topic… Get over yourself. Stop thinking about me, me, me. Think how can this post help someone else, would this possibly benefit someone on my Facebook, Twitter, etc. Then, write a comment based on who and why you will be sharing it. It is REALLY that simple.
Not to mention… If you help someone else in the process whether a loved one, a friend online or a total stranger, it still benefits you. How so? Because now your that awesome person who gave them info that they might not have found otherwise. They will probably even thank you. How cool is that?
Maybe it’s that ‘Southern Hospitality’ or walking with my Saviour more & more daily that makes me realize it’s not just about me and what I can get out of something… It’s about how can this info serve others? If I take the time to come to your blog and read it, I cannot ethically/morally leave without giving you some comment love, some share the blog love and so on. To me, it’s just not right.
So, what’s left for you to do? Go out there and start commenting and when you come across a fellow blogger’s blog that you may not have any interest in yourself, think about who could benefit from the information. Be a giver and share that blog & comment love!
Last but not least, let me know what you think below. Whether you have questions or comments, please post them below. And if you think someone could use this info, please share the blog love!
