One thing that denotes your blog is successful or not is discussions. If your blog has comments on it then people thinks that your blog is engaging and interactive and they would be like to become a part of your community. But if your blog has no comments, no discussion going on – it’s like a desert then I don’t think people would like to read your blog or spend their valuable time on your blog even if you share world’s greatest content.
So, it’s become very important for us to kill the silence of our blog and make it interactive. But the question is, “How?”
Don’t worry I’m not going to say, “write more engaging and interesting content.” because I know lots of people already talked about it. So, there’s no use in telling it again – and you are already smart enough to know how important content is?
But to get comments on your blog alone content is not enough, you need something more. And that something more is your blogs comment system. You’ve to make your blog comment system easier and flexible.
