Do You Want Comments on Your Blog?
Most of us do want comments on our blogs – and we wish that people who read our posts would take a minute to jot a note. It’s just nice to know that someone is there – that you’re not merely keeping some kind of private online journal!
So…because I appreciate comments, I try to leave one on any blog that keeps my interest long enough to read the whole thing.
But much of the time lately, I don’t do it.
Why? Because more and more blogs require people register and log in before they can comment. I don’t want to take the time to do that. I know, it’s only 5 minutes or so, but… I’m just not good at sitting around waiting.
So, even when I’d like to give someone a thumbs up or a word of encouragement, I don’t do it.
Think about that – are you putting that “stop sign” in front of people who would like to communicate with you?
