Introducing Commenter of the Month!

By JLP | May 29, 2006

One of the cool things about blogging is the ability for readers to leave comments. Thoughtful comments add to a blog and give it a community feel. I am fortunate to have some of the best commenters! To celebrate that fact, I would like to introduce something new called The Commenter of the Month. This is something I just thought up like 5 minutes ago so you’ll have to bear with me as I plan this out. But, so far, here is what I’m thinking:

1. The Commenter of the Month is named by me and is COMPLETELY SUBJECTIVE. In other words, I get to pick the winner and I can pick ANYONE! It could be a one-timer or someone who comments frequently.

2. There will be a prize, I just haven’t figured out what it is yet.

3. Everyone (except RUDE commenters) is automatically entered into the contest.

4. I’ll pick a “winner” at the end of each month, starting THIS MONTH!

5. If there’s a month where I can’t pick a winner, there won’t be a winner. I also will not pick the same person twice in the same year.

That’s it for now. What do you guys think? The first Commenter of the Month will be announced on Wednesday!

    OOoooh, pick me! Just kidding. This is an AWESOME idea! I’m totally serious. I’m just jealous I didn’t think of it first.

    Sneaky AND clever. Wish I had thought of it! But the less admin tasks I have to do the better. :-)

    Giving the devil his due, I see! Bravo for you! Quite often, I think readers know more than the bloggers/financial writers (however, not in your case JLP!) :)

    JLP,

    I only found your AFM site within the last month. However, it seems to me to be an excellent way top get more quality feedback to what you are doing here.

    It has prompted my first comment to your site, and since I have http://allthingsfinancialblog.com on my Google page, I don’t miss a single post. That’s why I have it there.

    Incidentally, I switched my insurance policies for home, auto, and umbrella due to a link to another blog to featured a couple of weeks ago. I have saved several hundred dollars between them all for the year, so I am grateful for your extended network along with the organization of your posts by category.

    Thank you kindly.

    I once read a management book whose basic premise was, “Things that get rewarded get done.” So if you want more comments, rewarding commenters is an excellent way to accomplish it.
