So I wandered over to Paul Wolfe’s Blog with his New Commenting Policy and I loved it right away! So what is it?
It’s a great idea that if you make a thoughtful post on my website, I’ll reply, and visit your website and post a comment on your website!
It’s a universal principle of influence: Reciprocity. [full length version] Dr. Robert Cialdini describes this in a fantastic speech at Stanford. The basic idea is we have a social obligation in our society to give back to someone if they give something to you.
This could take up some time when/if I have lots and lots of comments, but I’ll try to keep up as long as possible!
I look forward to hearing from you and putting this cool commenting policy into practice!
