    Congratulations! What a great start to comments. I remember when I first started my blog, it took months before I start getting comments.

      Good luck with your top commenter efforts! The Widget refreshed every month, but I probably won’t post about it every month, as I don’t have the time! Maybe a big thank you late on in the year :-)

      I don’t know why but I like your blog – I think it just feels right some how, doesn’t it? Is it the community feeling, the way we write, or simply the topics? Who knows!

  6. Why would you turn comments off? | Technology Bloggers

    ... is the question for today. I can see no valid reason. I have already written about how comments are the fire of the blogosphers, how they are (in most cases) vital to success.Technology Bloggers readers, I ask you why would you ...

    A blog is not a blog without comments. That is how important comments are.

    Comments are really the fire of blogging. I remember when I started blogging, despite the wonderful articles I was posting no one seemed to care. For over 2 months the blog was just “dry”. But then when the comments started coming I felt some emotional jump for then the blog appears to have come alive! No blogger will want to post on a blog and not hear others in the comments.

      “For over 2 months the blog was just “dry”” – Wow, we have been lucky!

      “No blogger will want to post on a blog and not hear others in the comments.” – Very true.

    Well, yes indeed!
    Comments are the best way to develop a relationship with fellow bloggers and a humble mention can of course result into culmination of backlinks. Plus, you get plenty of friends also.

      Another good point James, comments can give you ‘virtual’ friends!

      Really appreciate you becoming part of the community James, hope to see you again soon!

        It was really nice to see you stop by and reply to my comments.
        Having friends is always a delight, be it real ones or virtual ones, and each relation is a pleasure to nourish.

          James, I think it is very important to reply to comments, especially if they are ‘begging’ for a reply, or if it is a users first comment :-)

          Useful blog by the way ;-)

    I am embarrased to say I have never commented on this site (have I Chris?), while Chris has left comments at WindowsTalk several times. Some days, I am just too busy to visit all my ‘friends’ it seems! :)

      P.S Just a thought, if you are too busy to visit this blog regularly, why not subscribe via email, and then come on over and post a comment when you find something that really grabs you?

    For me, comments make everybody active. The more active both the blog owner and readers are, the more chances to exchange ideas or to build new topics. I read one blog post before that the blog owner finds topics thru the comments of his visitors. That’s pretty wise strategy.

      It is often a good idea to check comments for article ideas, countless times this has worked for me Pete!

      Thanks for dropping by and adding your comment as a contribution to the community :-)

    Definitely, with no comments blogs would be like wikipedia, just not that good :)
    While a blog can definitely survive with no comments, it can’t grow like this. And i believe every blogger’s dream is for his blog to grow.

    Writing comment for a post or an article is basically interesting the fact that it challenged the mind of one’s person to impart ideas in various fields or topics. In the part of bloggers, definitely receiving comments from others give them inspiration to create more posts and above all it shows that there are people who have appreciated your work or what you have being promoted.

      Comments are vital for a blog. I agree that they can sometimes be what inspires people to write in the first place!

    Comments are like blood for a blog. Without comments and conversations, it does not take much time for a blog to die. :(

    An interesting aspect of blog comments is the fact that people who leave comments on your blog can also leave links to other blogs or websites or their own blogs to further the conversation. These links can be a great resource to help you find new blogs to read.

    I feel inspired by your strategy of commenting. I would also love to implement the same strategy as it creates a win win situation for both the commentator and then blog. Just one question how do you moderate the links and comments?

      Any comment with a link in its body/content automatically comes into review to check that it is suitable.

      Thanks for the comment and support Usman :-)

        But what about the links to the website in the URL field? How do you get rid of spam URLs from there?

    Hi Christopher and ALL,

    Comments are the life of a blog and it definitely is a measurement of a blog’s success and acceptance from the audience.

    Even if there always has to be the first commentator to a blog or a blogpost, (someone has to make the start), seeing a lot of comments and different opinions being shared is what blogging is finally about besides the monetary benefits one can aspire to get.
