When comments become burdens At a recent Fashion Lunch we hosted alongside Tara of the fashion, beauty and lifestyle blog TarMarTales.com, Tara touched on the subject of comments to her videos and the time she spends replying to them.

As a blogger who is growing in influence each week, the number of comments Tara receives on her blog posts and vlogs is rising all the time. In between her fashion studies and regular blogging Tara is doing her best to respond to her fans but replying to comments was becoming a bit of a problem.

There's no getting away from the importance of comments left by readers/viewers. Comments show that people are actively engaging with you and that your content is having influence. Complimentary comments can give you an extra spring in your step. On the other hand, critical or mean comments can leave you feeling deflated and in a bad mood.

But what good is it dwelling on the negative? Instead focus on the positive comments and feed off them. Responding to comments is often a nice gesture but when you're receiving 100s, maybe 1000s, of comments a day it is near impossible to keep on top of them all.

What Tara appreciates about Taggled is that it's cutting down the time she spends responding to video comments. She has been adding tags to her vlogs for months now and this is helping her answer the common 'who, what, where and why' questions which she so often receives from fans.

Where did you film your video? What music did you use? Where is that top you're wearing from? Adding in clickable people, place, product and music tags allows viewers to find out the answers for themselves. They just click on the tags within the video and hey presto!

Don't believe us? Check out a recent video from TarMar and see for yourself!

How much importance do you place on comments? Do you get the time to read and respond to them all?
