Dr Tanya is asking if comments add to the value of a post.
The comments feature is one of my favourite aspects of blogging. I love interacting with readers and writers. Being only human, I have at times left comments like “Good one”, “Great Post,” or “Loved This”. It is the longer, “meaningful: comments that are the subject of today’s discussion.
Do you think that comments add value to a blog post? If so, how?
One of the reasons I enjoy blogging is the interaction between us on our posts.
I have been lucky in that mine have been kind, as even if I didn’t agree with their perspective, it did give me cause to think about a different angle, respect their point of view and learn by constructive criticism.
Comments offer support and insight in times of concern and worry, an inner family who don’t pass judgement on past behaviour or misdeeds, rather offering the benefit of their experience and thought processes.
I have read comments on some posts that are thought provoking and entertaining in their own way, on some the banter between bloggers is funny, teasing and respectful. This in turn can lead to inspiration for new posts and ideas.
