Comments to Readers

I said in my “Starting a Blog (with Movable Type)” article that one of the best ways to build up your readership is to simply leave comments (preferably good ones) and post TrackBacks to the blogs you read.

And so it has happened again. Amy of spiffarific.com (fabu name) has posted a few comments here lately, and partly because I’m intrigued by the fact that she’s a woman, but mostly because I’d never heard of her before, I visited her site. And now she’s in NetNewsWire.

And so it goes. Besides, anyone who can say “the creator is a Microsoft nad-sucking lackey” is someone I’d like to read a little more (hence the title of this post: she left a comment on my blog and turned me into a reader of hers).

Another local Mac guy – I’ll have to add him to my blogroll the next time I update it.

  1. Thanks, Mike. I figured out the comments part on my own when I started bogging, but I didn’t know how the trackbacks worked until now.
