So after that commenter love fest you’re probably wondering how you, too, can be featured in a Tulsa Initiative post. Well, to leave a comment all you have to do is scroll to the bottom of whatever post you’re reading, enter your name and email address, and type in your comment under “Leave a Reply.” It’s that simple – no registration required. Go ahead and practice on this post. Tell us who you are and where you work.
Why comment? Because there are so many things that you all know that we don’t!
Of course, commenting on (or even reading) our blog isn’t your responsibility. So we need to do a better job of making this a welcoming place for you all. This list of 10 ways to manipulate you into commenting encourage you to provide feedback is what I will use as my guide for better posts:
- Invite comments.
- Ask questions, be open ended, and be humble – we’ll try not to sound like a know it all. (Because we most definitely aren’t!)
- Interact with commenters and be gracious. Let us know when we screw up or if you disagree, and we’ll be thankful for it!
- Reward comments – that’s what the previous post was all about!
- Make it easy to comment – hopefully, check. But I’ll try to remember to provide occasional refreshers.
What would make you more likely to comment? What kinds of conversations would be interesting or helpful to you? Why do you read this, anyhow?
Thank you all for reading this blog. I personally want this to belong to all of you, so I hope and encourage you to make it your own. So dive right in!
