Ways to maximize comments while minimizing effort.

Reads are good, but let us be honest reads are a dime a dozen, you post enough stuff and they will start rolling in. The real prize, the gold medal, well at least the silver, is a comment, and the more the comment says the better it is. A four-word comment is nothing but a twenty- or thirty-word comment is great so how do you get the great comments. Well, you are going to just have to work for them.

Read and comment is the best way to get comments of your own. Not everybody will return the favor, but some will so this is the best way to get comments. The problem is you may have to read and comment on ten or twenty things before you get somebody who will return the favor. To alleviate some of this time-consuming process chose items that already have comments. Instead of reading the item read the comments and use them to build your own comment. Another option is to skim the item and find a line or paragraph you can mention in your comment then just make up the rest. A comment for the most part is your opinion so if you say you really loved the story who can say you did not.

The object is to read and comment on as many things as possible which means you need to take shortcuts. Now I am known for posting under multiple accounts and I have done this on other sites and seen an exceptionally good shortcut, but it will not work on Booksie. You write five or six comments beforehand and switch between them as you leave comments. Now you need to make them vague enough they can fit anything and/or leave an area where you will talk about a line in the writing you really love. If done right, you can probably do twenty comments in an hour maybe more. It does not work on Booksie because any comment you leave can easily be seen on your profile.

Using other people’s comments as the basis for yours is good, but if they mention typos or grammatical errors ignore that part because you do not know if they have been fixed. Borrow lines from the earlier comments and put them in your own words. Another option for this is to check on people that you know who do a lot of commenting and read their comments and change them, so it is not obvious that you are stealing somebody else’s comment. Now here is the trick you do not want to do everything that person commented, or somebody may notice. The best option is to have three or four members you shadow like this.

That is very interesting to read, but I don't know if I could do it. I do enjoy reading the whole thing and it helps when making comments on other people's writing. I will say when someone writes, it was good, I loved it. It might not be enough for the writer. I do love this topic and appreciate bringing it up. Thanks.

This was written to be funny though parts of it are based on things I have seen or experienced.
