Comments - Screw the Advice

Yeah, even the bad comments are welcome. 

So I read a popular writer's blog post that said most people will not give your blog any credit if they can see that you have meager comments, etc. So even though it is hard to do, fledgling bloggers should dump the comment box and showing of small amounts of followers until the blog is bigger and more popular.

So in case the few of you who read my blog have noticed, that is what I did - I lost the comment box. And you know what? It sucks. I loved each and every comment I ever got on any of my blogs, and removing that aspect (though the comments were not copious by any means...but who cares???) has made the blogging I've been doing pretty hollow. I MISS my few little comments!

So in a huge FU to that stupid advice, I am going to put my comment box back on, and expecting NOTHING, I will wait for the fancy to strike one of you at any point in time and relish in your thoughts.

  2. Comments are great! Yes, I am disappointed and have a slight feeling of failure when one of my posts gets no comments, but I learn something from that as well.
    Glad you reactivated this. Now your blog is interactive.

  4. Thanks Erin - talking to you the other day made me realize that it wasn't worth it to leave the comments box off :)

  6. Lindsay! I'm so glad to see the return of your comment box, and I'm not afraid to use it. And I'm also in agreement with the opinion that making your blog interactive makes it more appealing. Aside from that, screw the advice and do what you like! Cheers!

  7. What does that blogger know anyway? Is his logic that if someone sees that you don't get any comments that they won't be inspired to comment? I'm less inclined to comment when there are 512 other comments. I mean, no doubt whatever I have to offer has been said by then...
