Respond with comments to build relationships and traffic

– Responding to another blogger’s comment can be just as important as the article post itself.
Blogging is about dialogue and the opportunity to interact with your audience.
Many posts will not receive any comments, but when they do, you have to be ready to respond.
Blogging is a little like having an amphitheatre of people viewing a conversation between two people.
While you must focus on the conversation with your commenter, you must also be aware of the rest of the audience.
In other words, you should respond to the challenge the commenter presents while at the same time providing greater context, so the entire readership can follow and benefit from your conversation
