Blogosphere Trends + Encouraging Comments
SEPTEMBER 11, 2010
You may have heard the stat that for every 100 people who read your post, only one, on average, will leave a comment. The fact is, most of us are lurkers by nature. I know I am; I read dozens of blogs every day but very rarely comment. Having eyes on your post and having comments aren’t necessarily the same thing, but the silence can be frustrating. Lesson: Ask for comments. This example got 113 passionate comments in just eleven hours.
