I know that link blogs don’t have that many comments, but I’m trying to make my blog entries a bit more interesting to attract more commenters. I’m not sure if it’s working or whether this blog has more comments now because it has more readers. The other technique that I’m trying is to reply to most of the comments, even if they don’t need any answer. My next step will be to try to apply some of those 10 Tips for Attracting More Comments. It’s an interesting article for bloggers and I’m going to start with the first tip: Ask.
This blog is open for comments. I like comments, specially if they are positive ones, with new ideas, links, suggestions or nice words, who doesn’t love that? Comments gives me an idea of what people like, what kind of content people appreciate, issues that I may research, etc. I don’t answer them all, but I read all the comments and I visit the blogs when the readers put a link to them.
Some of you have noticed that I started to use a comment tool called coComment. On the left side of my main page there is blogbox, with a “miniature copy” of my comments. There you see only comments from my blog, because I didn’t see any other blog that I read using it. That’s why I’m inviting more people to test it.
coComment is free, easy to install, easy to configure it, it will enable you to efficiently track your comments and conversations with others across the blogosphere and you can sign the feed of your conversations. It also works with Flickr and have an integration with the blog tools Word Press, TextPattern and Serendipity. They are planning more features, like integrating it in the comment form.
