Do you allow comments on your blog? I have been reading some great blogs lately but have noticed many blogs that do not have comments enabled. It is a shame really, I like to leave comments for the blog owner if their post was interesting or if I have something to add. Comments on blogs also give you communication between the author and the reader. Comments can be very important!
Some people I think do it as they are worried about spam comments or they have already received too many spam comments. Put comment moderation on if spam comments are a problem. Seriously, your readers should always be allowed to leave you comments. Interaction will keep your readers interested and they will also know you appreciate them reading when you answer them.
I had to put the comment moderation on as too many people were spamming me with their links, but I check comments usually once a day (sometimes less but usually more) and I approve ones that are not clearly spam. I like to hear good and bad feedback from my readers. I do not expect everybody to agree with me and I do not know everything. Many times readers offer me valuable insight and knowledge. There are times my readers have questions and just a comment about my blog. There are also times that people point out something I may have done wrong or that they do not agree with. All of these comments help us grow and I appreciate them all! If you are one who doesn't have comments enabled on your blog, you are missing out on some wonderful interactions with readers.
