Rosemary and I have decided to do something a little different this month; we're going to highlight our two top blog commenters for the month of April and put them in the spotlight!
These are two amazing people with very different backgrounds and areas of specialty, and we're sure you'll love learning more about them.
Acknowledging your top blog commenters serves many purposes:
First, it allows us to THANK them for their loyalty for coming to our blog and for leading the discussions that make our blog so valuable to others.
Secondly, it rewards our top blog commenters for their efforts and gives them some extra link juice and traffic back to their blogs.
Finally, rewarding your top blog commenters attracts others to your blog and helps you find the best blogs on which you can comment.
It's a win-win situation.
Our Top Blog Commenters For April 2011
Without further adieu, here are our two shining stars for this past month:
Val Wilcox of ValWilcox.com
Val Wilcox is our top blog commenter for the month of April, 2011.
Val is all about empowerment. It oozes from her personality, her writings and her advice to others. As I read Val's comments to our various blog posts this month, one theme prevailed: Helping others. And that's what Val WIlcox is all about.
Val is a highly sought after Life Coach who inspires others to live their life's passions. Her positive nature and her own passion for life has allowed her to help so many navigate through life's obstacles and live a better life.
As Val says, “Life is too short to waste on being negative.”
When first visiting Val's blog, I immediately sensed a feeling of relaxation and calm come over me. This is the feeling that Val's blog projects and it flows over to her readers. Her posts are insightful and pragmatic, often dealing with every day problems that we all encounter. You can immediately see why her Life Coaching business is so successful.
While at her blog, I wandered over to the Testimonials page. It was obvious that others in Val's life — her business partners, colleagues and students — value their relationships with her.
Here is a small sampling of what they had to say about Val:
“Val offers a lot of value and inspiration to those she reaches.”
“Val is a true Go-Giver. She is a leader in Life Coaching.”
“Val is one of the most inspiring and passionate women I know, hands down.”
“Val is an amazing coach/mentor.”
Be sure to visit Val's blog and soak in her insights and empowerment principles. I highly recommend it as a source of inspiration for changing your life. If you're like me, you'll want to bookmark it or, better yet, subscribe to her RSS feed so as not to miss a single post. WARNING: Val's blog is highly addictive and you may find yourself not wanting to leave.
Congratulations, Val Wilcox – our Top Blog Commenter for April!
