What do People Think about Sigs on Blog Comments?
While writing the post about slug lines, a thought occurred to me that I’d like feedback on.
What do other bloggers think about using sigs in blog comments?
I’ve been ambivalent. On the one hand, I love getting extra inbound links and visibility for my core offerings. On the other hand, I don’t see them used much, and I wonder if they’re offensive.
So sometimes I’ve posted and sometimes not, and I’m more likely to post on, say, a newspaper comment page than a blog.
This is the sig I’ve been using, when I use it–looking at it, it occurs to me that one obvious solution is to shorten it, pick one URL per sig, maybe have several versions of say two lines each–what do you think?
