Not only is commenting the right thing to do', the altiiby to engage in conversation has changed peoples' expectations. While bloggers crave comments, people expect to be able to add their input, instantly. They also expect almost instantaneous response. Comments have become a substitute for screaming at the TV'. Though usually, the exchange is more polite. Why bother screaming at some news anchor when you can invest some time in dialog with a blogger that has a viewpoint counter to your own? I always check the sites of those people that leave comments, and I try to comment on their blog as well. What I've noticed is that the more I comment, the more comments I receive. >>I continue to post to my blog without expecting anything in returnThat's an important point. It's easy to get discouraged when you write a post or three every day, and receive no comments. Don't let it get to you. I wrote for 8 months on a certain blog before I received the first comment, then it was like a floodgate had been opened.
