Not feeling the Luv? The downside to the CommentLuv Plugin

Before I started blogging I was a devoted blog reader; I subscribed to dozens of blogs.  I was an avid Pioneer Woman follower and I was clipping coupons with Money Saving Mom.  I also learned to love the CommentLuv Plugin.  As a blog reader I would always click on someone’s link if the title interested me. It was how I found some of my favorite blogs.   As a blogger I love using CommentLuv to promote my blog.

Unfortunately despite the simplicity of CommentLuv there is one caveat: In order for CommentLuv to work, you MUST enter the http:// before your site’s URL.   If you forget, CommentLuv will not link up your post!

When I learned about this I was disappointed because sadly, I too, have often forgotten to put the http:// before my url.  This means I have lost a number of opportunities to share recent posts and introduce possible new readers to my blog.  I still love CommentLuv, I just can’t believe that I didn’t realize this earlier!

So today’s lesson is:

Don’t forget the http://

    This is a very common mistake with first time commentluv users. How do I know? I was one of those who also made this mistake at first.

    Social Media Update Post Strategies: Everybody wants to know what to post on Facebook, what to Tweet about, or what to leak out to your network on LinkedIn. There are 5 main posting strategies that I go by and teach as part of my Social Media Strategy & Review. Each type has a best practice involved, delivers a unique end result, and is used for different reasons.

    The One Facebook Application You Can’t Go Without:Facebook can be super simple or outrageously over the top. Some companies have opted not to use all of the features available such as custom applications. I believe more often than not this is the result of not knowing how over not wanting to because, why wouldn’t you want to? If nothing else, I do suggest to all to have your website imported to Facebook using one of these custom applications and here are 4 reasons why.

    What you need to know about Facebook business page categories: Are you considering putting your business on Facebook? Congratulations, yes, that is where your clients and prospects are. You may ask, “where do I start?” and that is what I am going to help you with right now.
