The Importance of Comments

Preston's Office

<p style=”text-align: center;”No, this isn’t an Apple commercial…Here’s me in my office with all my important gadgets: iPad, Macbook and iPhone (and lunch!).

I have a secret to admit: I am obsessed with my blog comments. I remember when I first started blogging in 2007, and we were still on the old blogspot blog, I used to have my comments turned off. Why? For no reason, really, other than we thought blog comments weren’t that important.

Let me tell you right now… I was so wrong. When we turned commenting “on” in 2009, and I started getting real, honest feedback and questions from you my blog readers, the experience became so much richer. This really could have been filed under Common Mistakes as “Not understanding the importance of comments.”

I know this may be obvious advice to some of you blogging veterans out there, but it was a real epiphany for me. When you turn on blog comments, you instantly begin a conversation. Instead of a one-sided story telling technique, you open up a back and forth forum for the world to communicate with you.

I read every single comment you leave on my blog, and though I don’t respond to each one directly, I do sometimes write blog posts in response to comments or questions you’ve left. Many of your comments are very inspiring to me, and give me a lot of material and thought for writing the next entry. I also luck out by getting amazing recommendations, whether it’s for books, vendors or even types of junk food.

So, you’re probably thinking that’s all fine and great, but how does one encourage people to leave comments on his or her blog? Well, here are some things I’ve found:

  • Ask a question. At the end of each post, I generally ask a question or series of questions related to the post. This does two things. It offers an invitaiton for the reader to come and join the conversation, and it also gives me as the writer the opportunity to switch sides and listen to your thoughts on the subject.
  • Focus on your audience. Yes, this is another one of those obvious pieces of advice, but you don’t know how many times I’ve gone to a favorite blog and seen a subject that’s completely irrelevant to its audience. Since blogging is so easy and addictive, it makes sense that you may end up wanting to blog about anything and everything that comes to mind. Don’t. Just like being a good designer and not over designing, you want to make sure the content on your blog is focused and relevant to the folks reading it. This isn’t to say that your voice or content can’t evolve, but we’ll write about that more in a different blog post.
  • Extend the conversation. You may have noticed that I post my blog posts on our Facebook page as well as my Twitter account. Why do I do this? Because I know that conversations are happening on different platforms across the web. Some folks may not have time or even want to come to my site just to see if there’s an update on my blog. If I update everyone across all those platforms, it invites more people to the conversation. A word of caution, though: Do not abuse these communities. Facebook and Twitter each function in different ways and if you only use each platform for self-promotion, you are cheating both the audience and yourself of all the amazing capabilities that come with both worlds.

Of course, some folks just love reading blogs and don’t feel compelled to comment, and that’s okay. There are a lot of ways to judge your blog’s success, and it doesn’t end with just blog comments. Next week, we’ll discuss site analytics and how you can use those numbers to help you come up with more compelling content for your blog.

Now, for all those folks out there who always read my blog but don’t ever comment, I want to hear from you! Who are you and how did you find my blog? Also, if you have a blog of your own, I want you to post it here. I’d love to start reading it.

    We love your blog and do comment from time to time!

    It it key to leave opportunity for an open conversation with readers. Asking questions like “how do you use dahlias in your celebrations?” or “what is your favorite element of this real wedding?” enable us to gauge what our readers {fellow industry folks, brides, grooms…} like. A few days ago we posted a fabulous Parisian-inspired wedding and the comments poured in. It was so unique and we learned that our readers like that. They like seeing fresh + new ideas and looks, separate from a lot of inspiration out there.

    Now we’re curious as to what your daily blog reads are!

    Hi Preston! This is a great post. I am 23 years old and have recently started my own event planning company. I found your blog through a retweet a couple months ago (I had no idea you blogged!) and have been reading ever since. Your posts are always so insightful and heartfelt – thank you for imparting your knowledge and experience to all of us. Blogging is so very important – I’m glad you mentioned the point about “focusing on your audience” — I try to relate seemingly non-wedding things on my blog back to weddings (whether I’m talking about clothes, skincare, etc etc) so that my blog isn’t all about flowers, wedding photos, gowns, etc :)

    Ok, I am a blog stalker, a Preston Bailey website stalker, however I am truly harmless. LOL. Preston, I came upon your work 6 years ago when I was planning my wedding. My friend on another continent; Africa – West Africa, to be exact, told me about you. She is an event designer/decor specialist over there and while discussing my “vision” with her, she said “Sounds like a Preston Bailey event” of course I’m like who is that? And that was it. I have followed your website and work since then and I am so glad to see that both the website and blog have gotten a major facelift.

    Thank you for always sharing, it’s very hard in the event industry to find people, especially veterans who want to share ways to be successful. I appreciate your honesty and the tips you give us “the up and coming” are Ah!mazing. Because sometimes I feel like the situations I go through with my clients are my fault and maybe I am just not doing enough etc and then when I read your blog, I am like wow!!! So even Preston Bailey goes through this.

    Well again I say thank you and yes here is my blog: http://bcgeventdecor.blogspot.com/
    Please feel free to let me know what you think.

    Thanks,

    As always, thank you Preston for sharing your wonderful insights with the world. I have just started blogging, and I’m attempting to mix honest heartfelt blogs with information pertinent to brides and other clients (as well as some samples of my work as well!) I found you Preston, as well as many other wonderful people in this industry, through their blogs, and the one thing I’ve learned is to make it beautiful (“it” being whatever you happen to be creating at any moment). I think I will work on making my blog more beautiful right now! http://blog.argcreative.com/

    Dear Mr Bailey,

    I am an aspiring event designer and I found about you through another blog 3 months ago. I live in Cyprus and I am obsessed about your work. I never commented on your blog but this post made me do it. When I visited your website for the first time I showed it to my fiance, friends, family and I said ”this can’t be happening somewhere in this world” but actually it is. After that I immediately bought all of your books and I am reading your blog every day ever since. (Your book Celebrations is always on my coffee table). I couldn’t believe is even possible to create transformations the way you do before seeing your work. Your work is spectacular but I admire you even more not because you are great at what you do, but because you share your knowledge, experience and motivation with all of us. I really really thank you about that! I am getting married in 2011 and you gave me lots of inspiration. I dream one day to be present at one of your events because it is an once in a lifetime experience. Thank you again for all the inspiring blog posts. Looking forward for your tomorrow’s post:)

    You got it, Preston! I discovered you via a quote re-tweeted by one of your followers. It touched me, so I decided to dig around and learn more about what you had to say. Now I follow you on FB and love what I read. As a Los Angeles-based wedding cake and confection maker, I value your insight into business management and am constantly inspired by how you encourage and lift others up. How you value mentoring and nurturing when so many others value competition — sometimes to a nasty degree. Thank you for all of it!

    Preston,
    Comments relay a feeling of knowing where people are coming from. Building conversations/blogs/comments connects us which is where we all are spiritually/universally.
    I blog, twitter, design, comment and enjoy everything about it. I wondered about comments too. I have you on my blog roll.

  • Arturo

    I come to your blog every single day to see the details of your latest weddings/events and your creations.I see something cool, and new and it gets me thinking for the rest of the day. I dont miss it. I have my small little blog and I would like if you can take a few moments of your most valuable time to take a look at my blog.

    My blog is artquestflowersandgifts.blogspot.com.
    Thank you for all the crazy transformations and mind blowing work.

  • http://www.abovethemoonandstars.com Deborah Dixon

    Hi Preston…Not sure if you remember me, but I was in your first Bailey & Blum Mentoring Weekend and I have been following your work for years. I love your blog; because you are incredibly talented, open, honest, and willing to share your knowledge (event industry & life!). You speak in such an inspiring way. I read your blogs Everyday and sometimes More…lol! It is truly a tremendous gift to read it. Normally I do not post; because I’ve always thought Preston is so busy I am sure he doesn’t have the time to read comments. After reading your post today I thought I have to let you know how much I value your time and what you put into your blog. There are so many things I find helpful, but I will narrow it down to a few.
    •I’ve always created to do list, but when you started posting your to do list I re-formatted my own and it has increased my productivity enormously. As a new business owner the organization has been priceless
    •Your posting regarding the Universe being generous was definitely one of my favorites; because I too believe the Universe is generous.
    •I find it so amazingly encouraging, when you talk about how you started and some of the valuable lesson you’ve learned over the years. I can definitely identify with you when you talk about some of the thoughts you’ve had in the past and/or still do have. I look at what you’ve been able to accomplish and I am so motivated to go after my dreams!
    •One of the most surprising things your blog has given me is confidence. Confidence to be creative and try new things. I will send you my blog link as soon as it is ready. Until tomorrow!
    Thanks Preston!!!

    Preston – I read your blog everyday (even on vacations) and I have your blog as an icon on my laptop desktop for easy access. I rarely leave a comment because I didn’t think my comments mattered. I promise I will comment more often. I actually read two blogs daily …. Martha Stewart is my other fave! And both you and Martha have excellent taste in shoes!….LOL I don’t own many shoes but I love seeing the shoes on famous people.
    Thanks so much for sharing your time in this blog! You seem to manage your time very well especially to include time for your blog.
    I would like to request that if you have any tidbits to share about your own wedding plans that you please remember to share with your bloggers.
    Today’s post was my all-time favorite.

    Preston,
    Anne Marie Foy, owner and lead designer of The French Bouquet (and Petite Fleur) and I, Savannah Sturm, her social media manager, love your work, your tips and your blog! Your helpful tips and hints are always so diverse and just what designers need, and this post about comments and seeking self promotion is extremely inspiring!

    The French Bouquet has recently been featured in the recent edition of Bridal Guide magazine, as well as our local magazines, Tulsa People Weddings and Brides of Oklahoma, and it is always so exciting to see your own work in print. The face time and clients that result in this kind of publicity is always extremely beneficial and you’re right, getting your name out there, is very important. It can definitely take some time and working up the nerve to seek left and right isn’t always easy, but in the end the result is well worth it!

    Last Fall we really kicked off our blog, http://www.thefrenchbouquettulsa.com/blog and from this we’ve received a great deal of compliments, comments and clients. A blog also serves as a great way to show your current clients your work so as to inspire them as you help them plan their own wedding or event. Whether as an advertising tool, a way to inspire your current brides and clients, or as a creative outlet to share with the world your ideas and latest creations, blogging has really made a difference for us.

    We would love for you to visit our blog some time and maybe drop a comment or email! Your work is so very inspiring and we thank you for sharing. Keep up the brilliant work!

    All the Best,

A veteran foodie blogger once said, “comments are like drugs to bloggers!” Boy was he speaking the truth, once you get that first hit you keep coming back for more. The challenge is to stay true to yourself while blogging and still pull your readers and their comments in.Sometimes that’s a very fine line.

    I have recently been diagnosed with breast cancer and I guess like most people we believe that it will never happen to us. Well it did to me and so I thought that you may like to put an inspiration board together for breast cancer survivors

    Looking forward to seeing you in Feb at Event Solutions Idea Factory in Las Vegas, all the way from Darwin Australia!

    You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to
    be actually something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and extremely broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!
