I’ve been in bit of a blogging slump, so I was really excited when Jess @ Princessica of Books offered to guest post for me! I’d hosted her here on Bookish Serendipity before, and she’s so incredibly fun. Today, she’s bringing us a guest post about the importance of commenting! This is a really interesting post, and I hope you enjoy it.

The Importance Of Commenting
If you ask a blogger what their favorite thing about blogging is, they’ll most likely interaction, commenting, or something along those lines. And it’s true! I love getting comments just as much as I love comments. I’ll admit that it does take a while to comment, while also responding to your own comments, writing new content, reading, and who knows what us bookworms do. However, it’s important that we all take a few minutes (or hours…) everyday to leave some love to our favorite, small, big, and friendly bloggers.
Gets YOUR Name Out There!
If you’re only blogging for yourself and maybe you are a newbie blogger (or not, to be honest this applies to all bloggers), then this reason will definitely appeal to you. From personal experience, the more I see your name, the more likely I’m going to visit your blog and leave a comment myself. I like to give back to my readers and that’s one way I can do so.
Every time I get a comment on my blog, I get so happy because it means that someone actually visited my blog, read the content, and enjoyed it! I put a lot of work into all my posts, even this one. It feels good to know that someone else appreciates it all the time and effort I put into each post.
Interaction = Relationships
If we have books in common or maybe ideas, even, let me know! That’s how friendships are formed and you bet that all of us are always in constant search for friends. I’d love to discuss it more with you and hear what you have to think as well.
Your Opinion Matters!
Even if you are disagreeing with the discussion or post, your perspective matters! Especially with discussions, there are so many sides to it. You may have experienced more than me and therefore have a better judgement. If you politely let me know, you’ll broaden my horizon and I can do better in the future. You have no idea how many times I read a comment and say, “Hmm, I never thought about that.”
These are the four main reasons why I think commenting matters. What do you think?
Jess is your local blogger, bibliophile, feminist, and future cat-lady. She enjoys supporting her local library and absolutely adores indie bookstores. When she is not reading or doing any other bookish sorts, she is probably listening to Troye Sivan, tweeting (@PrincessicaOB), or doing schoolwork [yes, although she hates it, she is quite responsible]. Feel free to chat with her on Twitter, Goodreads, Instagram or email her at princessiccaaaa[at]gmail[dot]com. Yes, two c’s and four a’s.
