I enjoy writing my blog. I am not as faithful to write as I should be, but I enjoy it. There have been times it has served as a cathartic exercise for me. By their very nature, blogs tend to be a little narcissistic. They really are about the writer. I am conscious of this and try to guard against it. I try to offer things that I think would be helpful for me to read other places and offer those kind of things to the few people who read my thoughts.
I have been blogging for just over two years. In that time, I have gone from zero readers to a few more than that. Over the past 45 days or so, I have averaged just over 1,000 views per day. I am not trying to brag, I am making a point. Here is the point: even with all those hits, I get virtually no comments. I like comments. I enjoy the conversation. I have two or three friends who comment periodically, and I appreciate it. I realize that I do not comment on every blog post, but I do comment some. If I read a post that is compelling to me for some reason, I try to leave a comment.
Here are some questions I would like some help with:
- What causes you to leave a comment on a blog post?
- What makes you decide not to leave a comment?
- If blogs are part of social media, where is the social part?
