    Hi Vivek,

    I love the benefits of commenting in another blogs.

    But you know, there is a downside too. When we comment in another blogs, other commenters can come to our blog, and when they find interesting blog posts, they will create similar posts too.

    It is not bad, but it is a common fact 🙂

    Thanks for visiting my blog!

      @Kimi- Well Kimi, I have mentioned this fact in the 4th point as an advantage. The reason being although others might get ideas out of your blog posts, the same applies to us when we comment at other blogs.

      Thanks for your comment. 🙂

    I think that #10 is what a lot of people completely miss. Blogging exists to share and to interact. I think a lot of people get stuck in pumping out content for the sake of having something to post and then have blinders on when it comes to promotion.
