It is always great when your blog posts and articles receive comments from loyal followers. But every so often there are those that feel the need to post negative comments about your post.

In some cases these negative comments on your blog are not directed at you personally so don’t pay much attention to them. There are also those people who actually mean what they say, but they lack the ability to share their opinion in a courteous manner. It is a good idea to look closer at these to see the main point they’re trying to make before responding to their comment.

In cases where comments are completely offensive you shouldn’t feel guilty about deleting them. However, if you would prefer to respond, do so in a respectful manner. Often responding positively to negativity will keep them from posting negative comments in future. Also, yours is a copywriting blog, so don’t get caught up in the moment and forget the importance of choosing your words carefully.

You may also want to respond to some comments in an equally negative way to open up a discussion between that person, yourself, and the rest of your followers. You can use this to your advantage in a way that it increases the traffic to and popularity of your blog.

Why you should welcome feedback

Receiving feedback on your copywriting blog is always a good thing as it shows that people are interested in what you are saying. It’s also really the only way to gauge whether or not you are being relevant. Also, your followers may sometimes have good suggestions on how to improve you blog and their reading experience. Remember, if they are commenting on your blog, they are probably telling other people about your blog.
