Blog Comments Blogging Communities and forums  

Picture Credit:

B is for Blog Comments, my previous post too was related to comments, I am forced to write a bit more about this wonderful subject called  Blog Comments.


Every first Wednesday the members of IWSG community writes about their activities mainly concentrating on their writing fears, doubts, solutions to the many problems writers faces in their daily writing life. Alex Cavanaugh, who started this platform to help each other (The writing community). Though I missed some of the assignments I am glad to present my installment for the month along with this month’s A to Z Challenge.


In the recent past in relation to commenting on different blog pages, I have noticed and experienced a bit disgusting experience. While posting comments through Google’s G+ comment box the first comment we post never shows or receive any message like, “your comment is under moderation, or it will appear after the moderation” instead it will disappear in the air, but if you copy the same comment before pressing the submit button if paste it again and send it will show on the page, if you do not save the typed comment you need to type all the sentences again, for this, most of the time a tedious job and may not remember what we typed earlier!


g plus comment box
G+ Comment Box

So my dear fellow bloggers, those who are using the G+ comment box, please make a note of this and copy and save the comment before you press the publish/submit button. This is an alert I want to make this month’s IWSG page to my friends. Save your time and energy by saving your typed comments. If you are directly typing it in the comment box it is a must to take a copy and then press the publish button.


Coming to the Communities and Forums

Yes, Blogging communities are an integral part of a blogger and his activities.

Through these platforms, a blogger can accrue knowledge about blogging and many other related activities on blogging. And at the same time, it will give a great boost to blog traffic to their respective blogs.

There are a good number of blog communities in the world of internet. In this post, I am introducing some of the wonderful communities where I am a member.

In fact, I enjoy being in these pages of fellow bloggers meeting together to share their views, doubts, and suggestions.


IWSG Community

In relation to A to Z Blogging the first name come to my mind is IWSG The Insecure Writers Support Group. This forum/Group is founded by Alex Cavanaugh, one of the Co-host of A to Z Blog Challenge. Alex is a terrific novelist who wrote a good number of books which are bet selling science fiction novels in the western bookstores.  In this page people from around the world air their doubts, fear, ideas, suggestions in relation to blogging and writing.  Any blogger can visit this page and join in by clicking on this link:  IWSG


The second community online is the community called, where a good number of well-known bloggers share their posts in


different categories. It offers cash awards and many other giveaways through this platform. The founder and Admin of this community are Mr. Kingsley. He personally deals with the members and answers the queries. In the recent time, they have introduced various other opportunities for the writers to make money through their activities on these pages. One of my blogger friends wrote a review on this platform. The author Richard Martin says in his article titled: Hail The King! Bloggers Rejoice! Review…  Is a wonderful community for bloggers,

  2. I have learned to copy all of my comments before posting. It’s tedious, but easier than having to remember what you wrote and type it all up again.

    Excellent post! I’m sure Alex would be very happy with it. :)

    • Hi Chrys,
      Yes, that is a tedious job but when comparing typing all again is this is far more better,
      earlier there was no such problem we faced through G+ comment box. It is still not fixed,
      instead we need to take precautions. It is better to copy and keep one before pressing the
      submit button
      Thanks for your valuable presence again.
      Keep sharing

    Hello there.
    Interesting information, albeit a little long for the AtoZ Challenge. I almost didn’t leave you a comment either because of the extra step of having to enter the CAPTCHA! Thanks for sharing though.

  4. When C is for “comments”, I suppose I have to leave one. ;-)

    It is very ambitious to take on this A-Z challenge…especially when you get to letters like x and z. I shall have to watch to see what you come up with.

    April 5, 2015
    • Indeed, David. It will be interesting to see how Philip goes with this. It’s not easy sticking to something from start to finish, let alone writing about every letter. But I am confident he will pull it off, :)

      Talking about surprises… guess what he wrote about with D ;)

      April 14, 2015
    • Hi David,
      Good to see you here again,
      Yes, A to Z challenge is indeed an ambitious and a challenging one!
      I have been participating since 2013 people from all over the world
      are participating this year 2000+ participants registered their names.
      Yes, we all need comments and at the same time we need to give also LOL :-)
      Thanks Dave for the lovely feedback
      Have a great day

  6. Hi Phil,

    Let me start by thanking you for the kind mention of the ABC (Aha!NOW Blog Community), which is still in it’s Beta, but I think it’s creating tiny ripples in the Blogosphere, for which we have our wonderful Ahaian’s to thank, as it exists because of them.

    I guess without any cash rewards or giveaways now, it’s doing well as bloggers and non-bloggers are welcome to share their posts, stories, experiences, and just be with everyone, with no strings attached. We recently started the guest posting options too for all, so that it’s a platform FOR people, to genuinely help them, and I hope it works that ways.

    Yes, the other communities are wonderful too, as I’ve been a part of Kingged earlier, and the other one Rohan mentioned about. I guess if the main aim is to help people, anything is good, isn’t it?

    Thanks for sharing this with us. Have a nice week ahead, and hope you had a lovely Easter too :)

    April 6, 2015
    • Hi Harleena,
      I am sad to note that I missed to respond to your comment.
      I appreciate you for sharing a value added comment.
      So glad to note the new developments at ahaNOW
      I wish a wonderful time of sharing and caring ahead.
      Yes, another communities mentioned too are wonderful.
      Yes, as you said anything helping each other is always good and it has its own value.
      Thanks again for your valuable time.
      Happy to mention ahaNOW this post
      It’s indeed a great joy to be part of it Too!

  7. Hi Philip sir,

    I totally agree on whatever you said about Aha!NOW and its Admins/members. It is a wonderful place to be in.

    Blogger Help Forum is also an amazing forum to interact and get your queries solved. Thank you so much for mentioning me in the post. Yes, I am quite active there and I am also a moderator there.

    Thanks for sharing. Have a great week ahead. :D

    Hi Phil.

    Thanks for the mention. Yes Kingged is an excellent place, though I’ve struggled to get on over the past couple of weeks because of some other projects I’ve been working on.

    And do you know what? Traffic has decreased slightly. It’s proof of the pudding that Kingged works.

    thanks Phil, sharing out now.

    April 7, 2015
    • Hey Richard,

      Thanks for seconding that is an excellent place. Like I responded to Ron, it’s actually awesome and amazing Kinggers like you that make us worthy of mention in such posts. Good to see you back to valuable participation on Kingged, despite your already full day-to-day activities.

      Enjoy the rest of your week.

      April 14, 2015
    • Thanks a lot Richard for you response to this post.
      I appreciate your time here even in spite of your tight schedule.
      Sorry for the delay in responding to your valuable comment.
      Yes, kingged ways are amazing!
      Keep sharing.
      Have a wonderful time ahead

    I am with others, thanks for sharing this Philip.

    There are a couple I have not heard of before. I’ll have to check them out.

    I did sign up for ABC or Aha, but have not really used it. Think I got a little lost trying to find my way around. Need to get back there and figure it out.

    Another vote for Kingged from me. It’s a great site with some amazing people. Just the connections alone have been worth spending some time there.

    April 12, 2015
    • Thanks for the extra vote for, Ron. It’s amazing Kinggers like you that make us worthy of mention in such posts, ;)

      Hopefully we will all keep growing together and making the right connections that will even flourish way beyond :)

    Hi Philip

    Thank you for the info. You know I have used G+ and never experienced this situation but your advice is noted.

    You listed great blogging communities. I loved the things you said about ABC. It is not just a community but a family. Anyone who wants to feel worthy; feel a family and enjoy traffic, ABC is the right place. Thanks for sharing.

  13. Hello Philip,

    Thanks a lot for adding to list of blogging communities and forums. Very much appreciated.

    I like that you listed others, apart from Kingged. Like I have said many times in the past, I always encourage people to use more than one blogging community, forum or social networking site. There are way too many great posts published daily than there are blogging communities, forums or social networking sites to help promote them.

    So, the more blogging communities, forums and social networking sites that are out there to submit posts on, the merrier, especially as we have now entered the era of “spending more time promoting posts than writing them” ;)

    But of course, it’s also a good idea for many of the blogging communities and the likes to do more to help their members reach more people with their posts. And that’s what has been focused on doing, and will be doing a lot more of that moving forward – help our members get their shared, syndicated or unique posts read by LOTS more people than just those on our platform.

    Thanks again, for writing this and for adding Kingged to the list. I see you also shared this on I have “kingged” it and am sure others will as well, :)
