Commenting on A Luxury Travel Blog has really taken off this month, thanks no doubt in part to the Hyatt competition that we are running throughout May 2009. Despite my best efforts to tell people that comments such as ‘Thanks for the information’ and ‘Great post’ offer little value to the blog or its readers, however, commenters have still persisted. So, today I’ve taken action! From now on, comments that are just 100 characters or less will not get through. That might seem to some people to be quite a high minimum limit. Afterall, the very short posts would be easily dealt with by a limit of just 15-20 characters. But when I reflected on it, I thought that even those comments that say “I once stayed at this hotel and we had a fab time!!!” are not all that meaningful either. Hopefully, encouraging readers to offer a bit more will be good for the blog overall and will result in more meaningful discussions after each post. If you agree or disagree, feel free to comment… but remember, it can’t be too short!
