The lack of comments on my blog is driving me crazy. I visit other blogs and some have an abundance of comments. Are they giving out free candy with each one?
Other bloggers and I have been discussing his issue. How do you get people to comment? Here are my suggestions for what they are worth:
1. Be Controversial: If you make people so angry that they have to publicly disagree with you, you will get comments. I don't like this one. I'm more of a why-can't-we-all-get-along person.
2. Prizes: Have a contest and tell people they have to comment to enter. I don't like this one either, and I doubt it would even work, but someone told me they do it all the time.
3. Ask for Comments: I was told if you simply ask for comments, people will comment. Is that true? Be honest.
4. Turn off the Captcha: I hate doing this because I start getting at least half a dozen spammers a day leaving ridiculous comments that I have to delete. It's a machine leaving them, and it is so annoying. BUT I would do it for you if you were willing to comment.
Anything else? Did I miss anything.
Tell me what makes you want to comment on blogs, and I will probably do it?
Do I need to bring in a hot guy for a special appearance?
Save a puppy for every comment?
What? What do you want from me? :)
