This is a direct question posed to every curious individual who visits this blog and several other blogs, reading through numerous posts without leaving trails of comments behind.
It’s quite overwhelming finding people taking time to read your thoughts. Meanwhile most of them don’t comment or respond. So whats the point and how would we know how good / bad the post was. A blog isn’t a blog without comments.
Writing a response to what bloggers post is important to both the blogger himself/herself and subsequent viewers on the blog.
Some deliberately choose not to comment while others show concern and may have nothing to add but make it a point to respond simply with nicely said, good job etc.
Its not about racing up for many and just any comment. Rather its about knowing the results of sharing your thoughts and ideas with others.
We can all try to make a point and respond to blog posts, you’re not obliged to discuss and analyse. It could be time consuming to read thoroughly and respond but the success of a blog is built by viewers.
When posts are read only without commenting the blog seems to be completely one-sided which defies the fact of having one.
