One of the most interesting features of a blog is the commenting function. Because of it the blog doesn’t have to be a one way flow of information. The ability to accept comments turns a simple web page into an invitation to communicate.
I’m sure that you’ve visited busy blogs that get lots of comment activity. The interaction comes close to what we see on a community forum, only the blog owner has control over the subject that their visitors get to comment on. The give and take of ideas is fun and adds valuable fresh content to the website.
If you’re a new blogger, you may have realized that the availability of commenting isn’t a guarantee that people will actually leave a comment. It does take work to get people commenting on your blog. This can be a bit frustrating but there are some ways that you can increase the number of comments on your blog.
Whichever approach you choose, remember that many of your visitors may not have experience in using a blog. Give them specific directions on how to respond, for examples, say: Click on “Comments” to share your thoughts.
