When is a Comment a Comment on Apsense Blogs.

Reviewed many blogs, articles on here and other sites, l noticed one thing that stood out like a real sore thumb.  We all know that we all have the ability to leave a comment on the article we just read, providing feed back or even perhaps creating an interesting debate among members.

None of this is really happening on many blogs, that l reviewed today, what l did see was the same thing l would see when l am on msn and l sending out a sentence to the person l am chatting with.  The comments l reviewed today was just another crafty way of getting noticed on here.  Hate to actually use the word "SPAM" but it is exactly that, members sharing a conversation on a blog wow....

Think about this for a minute here, APSense has been a leader in the ability of creating good articles that would entice members to share information at times longer then the actual blog as a comment.  We would get 75 - 100 well written comments from members who understood what her or she was talking about. 

Now everyone is only really concern with one thing, how "POPULAR" am l, how many "TOPS" did l get today.  Let's all enjoy what we have here, lets think about what we are doing and why we are here to create good solid articles that will enhance someone into a creative debate and actually get you some respect the correct way.

Yea l can showcase some blogs that l written to fully illustrate this point and provide the information and facts l have just stated here.  One thing about me, l really have no desire to make any money on here, why cause l do OK.  the only reward l want is for you to become successful it takes time, effort and the key word becoming well discipline learning how to dream and achieving dreams is what will make you successful.

Money only provides you with one thing in life, "FREEDOM", can not really buy you happiness  but l do know one thing it is a lot easier to be miserable and rich then it is to be miserable and poor..

At the end of the day you should play back the tapes of your performance.  The results should either applaud you or prod you

All The Best

Great post Joe. but see...there is not much to say in response to the post. You've said it all. So a 1 line response of good job, or I agree with you, is all that is needed in this instance (and to some other blog posts) if you know what i mean. There is no way to incite debate on a post such as this and sometimes, thats all your going to get. Do you know what i mean Joe?

Hi Laura,

Thanks for the comment, the reason l wrote this article was the simple reason of when we do read it we will understand to think and provided feed back that is a little longer the a one sentence conversation.....hey i will admit l have done it several times,,,but now l feel and seen that is another way l getting your name out there with earning the right too do that.

When leave a comment we get to go on the home page adding additional ex-poser to who we are but have you really earned any respect from other members who read your 3.2 second comment, did it motivate you as a reader to reply to his comment absolutely not.. Unless you have nothing better to do then you will also fall into that trap of leaving a 3.2 second comment...

You get the point...

Joe, I think way to much emphasis is placed on "who's who" on Apsense. Most people dont care about the politics and who's the most popular or the most respected or whatever. The only ones that care are the ones trying to get to those titled positions. Most of the serious marketers are here to work and network, not earn titles. We earn respect by our actions, not by our title.

Hi Joe,

I joined this site today and this is my first comment. I will try to be honest, I joined the site as I see it as a way of expanding my networking and inevitably increasing my website traffic.

I have spent a couple of hours getting the feel of the site and I have to say seeing your post was an unbelieveable coincidence as one of my immediate impressions about the site was that a lot of the comments were no more than 'junk' (apologies if posters are offended by this comment).

As a new member, I will strive to post valid comments on this site or keep my mouth shut. Thank you for reflecting my own feelings and I trust that your post srikes a chord of guilt with some posters. An excellent site that will stay that way if others follow your thinking.

Kind Regards

Hi Joe.

Excelent post, for a rant, no offense meant.

As Laura said, the post need to be written in such a way that IT invites good comments.

Unfortunatley you will get the SPAMUTOPIANS that give you some one liner comments and more offten than not, the plagiarists that only copy and paste the comments of others, just to be seen.

Kudos to Mark for a great intro comment.

Posting value added comments is an excellent way to drive traffic to your website.

When we post comments that is useful to the other members, they would be interested to know more about you and your business.

It is worthwhile to invest time in writing useful comments. When I read a useful comment that clearly states an opinion with argumentations or an addition that ads value I click to view the profile and often read some more of the stuff that person published. I think many others do that too. At least the ones that are serious and/or want to learn more.

This article's value is only as good as the readers who use this information in a productive way, learn and also think about what l have wrote as a positive reminder of when you are providing comments.

Lets face most of the members take a lot of time and effort to write a decent piece of information that may help or even provide you with some solid knowledge that will help you achieve your goals and perhaps even make the odd dream come alive.

I hope we all learn and share valuable information with one another and help us be better at we do on a daily bases.

Here I come with a different perspective, again. I read all responses before I write my response. The issue I have with the short one-liners, I don't learn anything new. I am here to learn academically and practice what I learn. This brings me to the point of when I see a pattern of one-liners I put the member on a list. What is the title of the list? You guess!
Dec 1st 2010 11:36   
Joseph Botelho Magnate I   Investing One Gram at a Time
Waste of Time list....Non Productive List, One Time wonder List...Not Learning Anything List....

Well them are the lists l will guess you would file them members under or perhaps you have something more creative as in file 13, garbage can...OK i give up....but l do follow your thinking all the way to the bank...

Cheryl wrote a nice blog a few weeks ago, it was very funny. There were inspired names for all the types of abuses we find here.

Thank you @Philippe and @JFB Marketing
I got you thinking, I am here to brand myself as a reliable member that is learning academically and practicing what she learns. I don't do well on one-liners.
I met a neat lady yesterday, Lisa Simpkins. She quoted something that is really significant. Rats, gotta go find it. It was about an open mind and open parachute.

Regardless of why we are here and what we are trying to accomplish from APSense, we should fully understand the original concept of APSense and why it is as successful it is today. The direction and approach was to direct members teach each other concepts methods, rate a blog accordingly, provide good feed back, regardless how bad the blog or article was.

The ART of encouragement is how you build a solid foundation, one member at a time....You need to understand this rather complicated Concept; for most egotistical minds we have attracted here at APSense.........the ability to use private messages to members who need to be reminded is NOT A have something to say to someone who posted a comment, if it is derogatory then KEEP it private......

Comments are feed back, not help want ads, chit chats.....please, learn this simple concept...

Sorry why i wrote this in the first place...

Yes, Joe, I'd have to agree with Laura on that point, so stop writing such good posts! LOL!
