From The HostBaby Blog:

Your blog is buzzing. Your content is getting shared far and wide. Your articles are getting commented on all the time. Now what?

Well, first — congratulations.

Second, it’s time to sit down and RESPOND to those comments.

Here’s a handful of general guidelines for responding to blog comments

It’s YOUR article. It’s YOUR ideas and personality. Feel free to have a healthy debate in your comments section. Just don’t cross the line into an argument.
