The subject for our class this week is why blog comments are such important parts of blogs. Blogs are people’s way to express their opinions or ideas professionally or personally. Most of the time people are not going to put anything out on the internet that they do not what anyone to read. So the flip side of this would be that the authors of these blogs would compose these posts to be read and enjoyed by others. After reading the author’s opinion or idea they want to hear the responses of their blog post followers have to offer. This is the only true way to have a successful blog. Anything that you write or post, you are wanting to hear back some sort of response if for no other reason than just to know that someone is reading it! If it is on a serious issue you need advice on then feedback from other readers is very important. They can help you answer the question you are asking or help you come up with a solution to a problem. I have not had a ton of experience with blogs and people commenting to my semi interesting posts 🙂 but, most of them are positive and only every now and then will you get someone who replies to a post with a negative tone. When writing a blog though, you should not be offended by this. You are voluntarily putting yourself and your ideas out there for others to read and form opinions about. So how could you possibly be upset if not everyone that reads your blog agrees with everything you say? That’s absurd and that is what life is all about you and other people’s responses to what you think. Without differing opinions how boring would life be?! So next time you read a blog post, whether you disagree or agree with the content, leave your comment for the author. This is what they want to hear. What would blogs be without blog comments?! Boring.
