Fun Ways To Drive Up Post and Comment Counts

Take note, aspiring bloggers!  Two great tips:

  1. Outright beg for comments when you don’t feel as if you’re getting enough of them
  2. Pretend that you also moonlight as a rival blogger, and then “reveal” that it was a hoax, just because

Awesome!

P.S. – Why aren’t more people commenting on this post?

P.P.S. – It’s been five minutes.  Why no comments yet?

  1. “P.P.S. – It’s been five minutes. Why no comments yet?”

    How do we know you are who you say you are? Can you please link to a separate blog I will comment there, thanks!

  2. Because nobody else could ever mimic the complexity of my name — Syp! I mean, “Hudson”, everyone knows that. Hudson River, Hudson Hawk, Hudson… Sudson. It’s everywhere.

  3. So that’s what I did wrong! Well I won’t make the same mistake twice!

    Btw, does begging for comments from someone else’s blog also work, or is that finally scraping the bottom of the barrel?

  4. Syppery Slope.
    Syphillis.
    Syptomania (stealing other people’s blog posts, you blog post stealer!)

    The list goes on.

    You are not who you say you are!

  5. I am Tobold. I am the Apeth Man!

    Wait…no..

    I am TOBOR! I am the 8th Man!

    Faster than a rocket, quicker than a jet. I’m the mighty robot. I’m the one to get!

    So I was rereading LOTRO, didja know Tobold stole his name from a character in that book? Tobold Hornblower, the Hobbit.

    Oh, and this isn’t really Tobold.

    I think his ploy was in poor taste, personally.

  6. How many comments are enough? When will this “my comment length is longer than your comment length” back and forth amongst you bloggers end?

    It’s sad, really. Well, that and the fact that I played along.

  7. 3. Go to a more popular blog and leave a comment with a link of your sad, sad blog, begging for readers of said blog to please look at your blog and comment.

    4. Hope people understand begging on more popular blogs is sad, but in these tough economic times beggers need attention too.

  8. You don’t fool me. You’re Hudson, and I can prove it.

    See, ‘Sypster Hudson’ is an anagram of ‘Suspend Shorty’, and your icon is an image of a short guy suspending his fist in midair. QED.

  10. Bah, I just noticed the tweets! I’m already behind the power curve. I’ll have to go cry about this and beg for comments.

    Actually, I’m just a bit too lazy to do that. I did like this though…

    You guys should totally read my new blog! I’m calling it Hello Kitty Slant. All HKO all the time!

  11. This is hilarious – it’s like a blogger’s all-star team in comments. Granted, I’m a third-stringer, but still!

  16. I’m Syp pretending to be Snaffy pretending to be Ysharros, Pretending to be Gevlon, who is really Tobold, who is pretending to be Larissa, who is pretending to be Frank, Who is actually Scarybooster, who is spinks, who is really Werit, pretending to be Rivs.

    We clear on that.

  17. You won’t see me comment on just any Joe Schmo’s blog. A comment from me is like the old Nintendo Seal of Approval.

  18. Who am I? I’ve lost track, but wanted to comment cos I think you don’t get enough quality comments from me.

  19. Great site…keep up the good work. I read a lot of blogs on a daily basis and for the most part, people lack substance but, I just wanted to make a quick comment to say I’m glad I found your blog. Thanks,

    A definite great read…
