  1. Reblogged this on Raistlin0903 and commented:
    You all know Arthifis right? I mean seriously, how could you not? The guy has written some amazing posts that were very helpful and gave all of us some great tips on how to blog. And not only that he is one of the friendliest guys out here in this community. A few weeks ago he reached out to me asking me if I would be interested in doing a collab post. I was honored and of course needless to say I accepted! But I was even more surprised to hear that it would be because he wanted some tips on how to comment on posts from erm…me? Well, as most of you know I love placing comments, and I think it’s one of the best things about blogging. So in the post below you can find an interview with me taken by Arthifis on that very same subject. I also have to say that he did a pretty good job in making me blush again, but as many of you know I excell at taking revenge, so I am sure I will think of something to return the favor 😊 Seriously though, I want to thank Arthifis for making such a great post and for a subject that I still believe is one of the best things blogging has to offer. So head on over to his blog and read it, and if you are not yet following him, be sure to do so right now!

    1. Well if it turned out great it’s because you were the one answering so do not sell yourself short! At all πŸ˜€

      And here we go again! Raist if I ever get a medical condition because of all the blushing I swear to god I’ll be sending you the medical bill!!!! 🀬

      Seriously though, thank you so much for the kind words! But, I will live the throne of “The best person in the community” for you πŸ˜‰

      1. Haha…well sure, if I can sent you the bill too, for doing that to me as well lol πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
        All kidding aside, I meant what I said. And really credit where credit is due. This WAS your idea. And I’m very glad to have been a part of it. This really is/was awesome 😊😊

  3. Oh yeah, this was great to read! It was like an interview and informative tips and tricks blog post all in one!
    Very wise tips indeed. Especially that it comes down to…don’t have a life just blog πŸ˜‚.
    As I know Raistlin in real life (my boyfriend and him work together) I knew there had to be a secret as to how he is able to put so much time in blogging and commenting aside from daily life. Because that life is busy one!
    And now I know the truth….robot army. πŸ˜‚
    Great collab, Arthifis! It was a great read πŸ€—

    1. Lol…well…blogging could be a life right?? πŸ€”πŸ€” (Or maybe that is just me lolπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚). Yeah all the credit definitely to Arthifis, this was a great idea, and he made a seriously cool post out of it 😊

      1. well, of course, it does. Normally geniuses live for their own subjects… Since you are a community genius, it just makes sense you live for blogging… Right?

        And don’t come with the “all the credit goes for me”! If you were not who you are, believe me, this collab would never, ever, been done! πŸ˜€

    2. Damn Flow where do you get all those connections? First, you tell me you know 360Chrism on Twitch… Now I get to know you also know Raist because he works with your boyfriend!!! This really is a small world Oo And let’s not forget how lucky all those guys are to have the happiness of knowing you in person!

      Moreover, since you know him (and probably live nearby from each other) just drive to his house and try to find his robot army… Probably they are in the basement. Just steal like… 4 of them (yeah is not going to notice less 4 robots) and send 2 to Portugal! 2 for you that is doing the dirty work, 2 for the mastermind behind it. What do you think? Do we have a deal!?

      Thank you so much! This was a really fun collab to do eheh

      1. Haha that is really sweet saying they’re lucky for knowing me in person ❀
        And yeah, i like that idea…find the robot army 😎 I’ll definitely send them your way! But but, if you and your boyfriend lived here you could a. Meet all of them in person and b. Help with stealing the robots! 😁

  4. πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ» Wow… this is such a long post but I didn’t realize it until I scrolled it up again after reading the whole post. It’s because I enjoy it so much. Great tips and really helpful. And maybe Raist, you can send some of you army to me. I badly need help on commenting,

    And to Art.. this is such a great idea. I’m glad you thought of this. Not only you helped us, but you’re right, Raistlin indeed is good, even great, at commenting. He’s number one amongst us. hehe. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚
    This collab made me so happy which made me think you both should do more of it… hahaha…

    1. Haha…well…I guess I could spare a few of those robots for you lol πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
      Well, glad you enjoyed the post so much and really all the credit to Arthifis who came up with the idea in the first place! 😊 Oh…and this comment pretty much proves that you are really great at commenting yourself! And yes, I really mean that, and pretty much sure that Art will agree with me 😊 Thanks!

      1. Stop saying all the credit goes for me 🀬 This was only possible to do because you are here among us Raist πŸ˜€

        Completely agree of course! Lil always brights my day when she visits my comment section

    2. “this is such a long post but I didn’t realize it” … I think this is the best compliment I ever got? πŸ€” Well one of the best is I’m sure! I think Raist should just do the community a favour and send one robot for each one of us!

      Thank you so much Lil, I’m happy that you liked eheh But as you said, this was only possible because Raist is, in fact, GREAT at commenting! πŸ˜€

      Ooooh damn! You are making me blush! Well, we’ll see ^.^ I’m always open *wink* *wink*

  5. …. Raistlin… Disagreeing with someone?? I’m surprised he could even answer that question as I don’t think I’ve ever actually witnessed that… Or, he’s SO GOOD at it that I didn’t even notice?? πŸ€”πŸ€”
    “Go out of your comfort zone and just write a witty response to something once in a while” πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ you say this like it’s EASY to be witty!! Some people can’t just “write a witty response”, that’s harder than it seems! πŸ˜…
    Great post, guys!

    1. HmπŸ€” Well…that opening word should already say enough right? Pretty sure I have disagreed with you quite a number of times πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ But…hey, I guess I am good at it then if you didn’t even notice it πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ (or you choose to ignore it, which might also be the case lolπŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚)
      Well…if there is one thing I really am not worried about with you: is that you can write witty responses pretty much all day πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ So really….you are joking right? Or are you trying to be witty….πŸ€”πŸ€”
      Anyways: thanks: All the credit goes out to Arthifis for coming up with this idea in the first place, and he really made a great post out of it 😊😊

      1. Well, that’s my doing though xD I have a series called Arthifis Classroom where I teach about different things… Since Raist was doing this I just felt right to change it a little bit and give him the classroom for today 😁

      2. Here we go again… And every time you tell that I’ll be here to correct you! This was only possible because you exist and are here in the community! I’m not really able to think about another person that could do this collab! πŸ˜›

    2. I’m pretty sure is so GOOD that nobody notices ahahah :’D

      Thank you :3

      1. Writing comments always seems to take me so much time no matter what… I gave myself 2 hrs today to comment… I don’t even feel like I’ve made a dent. There are so many people that I want to visit, and so little time. πŸ˜•

      1. Couldn’t say better myself! Thank you for the kind words, the post was really fun to write (and I got all the tips first handed which is also nice xD)

        Regarding the army… Well, I’m trying to find a group of stealers so we go mission impossible at Raistlin’s basement and steal all of it! So, if you want in consider yourself invited.

    1. Well…I beg to differ 😊 (See, I can disagree on things sometimes lol πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚)
      But I see you commenting often on my blog, and sometimes the smaller comments can be just as good as the bigger ones. So really, I don’t think you have anything to worry about 😊

  6. This was such a great read. Thanks Raistlin and Arthifis for putting it together.
    I remember when I first started blogging and how nervous I was about commenting on others’ posts but I think part of me realised even then that if I wanted people to talk with me, I needed to talk with them. And seriously, the worst that will happen is someone will tell you you’re wrong.

    1. Haha…well, I can definitely relate to that. The first comment I ever wrote was on your blog, and I was nervous as hell about it (you will have to forgive me that I don’t remember what it was for anymore lol πŸ˜‚).
      But it’s so true…that really is the worse that can happen. I ofcourse never judge people, but I always find it a bit of a shame when you leave a comment on someone’s blog, and they don’t respond. But well, to each their own I guess 😊😊
      It really was a very fun project to do: glad you liked it, and thanks! 😊😊

      1. Ooooh! So good to see our Veteran bloggers feeling nostalgic XD

        Completely understand you Karandi. I remember feeling that way too, heck I even sometimes feel like that from time to time xD But, yeah… The worst thing they can do is just say you are wrong… If you defend your point you even can make a nice discussion afterwards, so, no problem at all πŸ˜€

        Thank you so much for kind words Karandi πŸ™‚ This was really fun to do eheh

  7. So neat to see the thought processes Raistlin has! I know I am amazed when I visit blogs and see Raistlin’s comments here and there and there and everywhere. (And good, long comments too!) When WordPress 2018 stats are posted, I have a feeling a certain someone is going to take #1 commentor on a record-breaking amount of blogs. πŸ™‚

    1. Haha…I have already done enough blushing for one day, doesn’t mean I have to go do that again today lol πŸ˜‚ But really thank you. I think that I definitely won’t be the number one though. There are people that are commenting even more than me 😊😊 But well, not doing it for that anyway lolπŸ˜‚ Just do it, because I really enjoy the interaction with everyone and well…it’s a lot of fun too!. So really thank you again😊

  8. As I suspected, great advice here once again πŸ™‚ I am usually a pretty boring comment person. I try my best to say interesting things but usually I just like the post I read and want to say that I enjoyed it lol.

    1. Well, I would never call you boring at all, and you are kidding right? You always have an encouraging word on posts, so really don’t sell yourself short here. That’s so not necessary 😊
      Also..thanks again for the kind words here 😊😊

  9. THIS WAS AWESOME! I have so much more respect for what he does and the fact that he comments on my posts so frequently. I think we can all walk away from here with a few tips and tricks in our back pocket now. Thank you so much for sharing :]

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words Samantha! πŸ˜€ People having more respect for Raistlin was one of the objectives I had in mind when I invited him to do it. This way, happy to see we were able to get that target 2 eheh XP

  10. I agree with thebookwormdrinketh, witty’s an art! Come to think of it, if you don’t want any enemies, the best kind of wit is the self-deprecating sort and I think I know two bloggers who excel in that game…

    I don’t think it’s happened on here or at Raistlin’s place (but I think it happens at Irina’s every once in a while), but sometimes Jetpack decides to get rid of 10+ minutes’ worth of comment after an hour or so of screen-staring and that’s why you’ll only see a like on the post and no comment from me. Outside of being told you’re wrong, I think that’s the most disappointing kind of comment…

      1. Not so much “deleted”, as they are “lost” because the thing behind the comment sending (Jetpack) somehow lapsed when it was sending the comment content.

        Since it doesn’t happen often enough to be too disruptive, it probably has to do with internet connections at a given moment or not loading the comments section properly. Since I do comment at Irina’s a lot (regardless of whether comments are lost or not), that probably explains why it always crops up there.
