Blog Readers vs. Blog Comments!!

Lately, I’ve been diving into everything blog-related.  Friends, I’m trying to craft my skills. I’m embracing my passion to write.  I’m… Well, anyway, back to what’s on my mind. I ran across an article about blog readers versus blog comments. It discussed which is more important.  Maybe I’m just enjoying the process so much, I never really thought about ranking one over the other.  However, I wondered if there was a larger conversation happening out there on the World Wide Web (there’s a throwback term for ya smile).

There is actually!

Here's a brief summary of what I found:

  • The importance of readers versus comments depends on the blogger’s motivation--your reason for writing.
  • Some argue that it’s not an argument to even examine, because there will be people who just don’t comment but enjoy reading.
  • Finally, there are those who believe that you should utilize tools and resources to increase comments.

Where do I stand? Whether you choose just to read, or read and comment, I’m grateful that you stopped by and took the time to visit my little blogspot! It means a lot that I'm finally doing what I love and that I'm supported by readers like you. So, read and explore until your heart’s content. Check out the tabs above, and if you’re moved to do so, leave a comment. 

Any bloggers who want to chime in, please be my guest.


  1. Amen! I do what I do because I like it.. On my main site, I share tutorials I find, freebies I make, and occasionally inspiration that moves me. On my personal blog, I share what's on my mind and my heart ( and I'm so restricted there because my life revolves around walking on everyone else's eggshells lol)

    If people comment, (not the spammers of course) I respond and am grateful to hear from them. But at the end of the day, I write to write.. if I wanted to be in full blown conversations I'd just be on facebook or some other social media arena that's meant more for conversations.

    I think lately I've felt the pressure of 'no comments is a bad thing' and have felt the need to take steps to 'increase activity' but I'm HAPPY with my site as is.. I have good traffic flow (never mind boosting THAT) and that's what truly matters at the end of the day!

  2. Hi Sarah! Thank you for stopping by. Doing what you like is the biggest reward. What's the saying? If you do what you love, you'll never work a day in your life. :-) Trying to get there! lol
