I think comments are fun. And weird. Never try and predict them.
There are a few things that will generally generate comments: Mentioning any milestone in your life. Births, weddings, death, all get comments. Which just goes to show how the blogging community is a community. People are reacting to you the person, apart from your writing. And that is nice.
Another big comment-generator is commenting on other people’s blogs, but if you are pressed for time, it just isn’t going to happen.
But what I found weirdest about blogs is that sometimes the entries that you really sweat over, to get it just right, will get no reaction at all. Nothing. Nada. Zero. Efes. This leaves you wondering if people even noticed it, or if your (what-you-thought was ) fantastic idea is all that ho-hum.
