A few days ago, my Wife posted a post that got me thinking about comments.
I ask myself, “Why do I want comments?” “What makes this blog so great that it deserves comments?” “What is this blog about anyway?” It doesn’t have any theme or any form, its a blob of a blog.
I know this is a piece of crap blog, it isn’t funny, it isn’t informative, it’s just a daily dose of some random crud.
Over the years, people have said to me, more than once, “I don’t write my blog to get comments.” Well, that’s true. I don’t. But if there were no comments, what would be the difference between me posting this here or writing it in a notebook and hiding it under the mattress? I think therein lies the answer.
Plus, everyone who has said that they don’t care about comments seems to have more than 10 comments on every post they post….
A lot of comments wouldn’t make any difference in my life, or on my ability to post, or the contents of my posts. I still crave comments and wonder why… And I wonder why some blogs that seem similar to mine get many times more comments than mine.
I’ve read all the articles, and all the “Tips to increase Blog Traffic” but none of seems to apply to me. I don’t want to increase sales or generate revenue, I just want to know somebody read this and what they think about it.
