A Comment? Is It Important?

Day 100. Post a Day 2011.

As an opening, I would like to ask you a question: How important is it for you a comment in your blog? If you ask me the same question, then my answer will be, "It isn't really important for me."

I know some of you may think that it is really important. It makes your blog is a bustling blog. It shows that there is a life in your blog. Your blog is attractive. You can engage your readers to involve in your writings. Unlike mine that looks like a dead town. Few comments I have, less interactions with my readers, sounds sad, huh? :D

To be honest, I like it when people give their comments in my blog. It means they read my blog and do concern what's written in it. They give their thoughts, opinions, or just simply say "Hi" to me and it's fine.

Their motives in giving comments are various, I guess. Some people really want to speak their mind, whether they agree or disagree with me. Some people I believe just want to fill in the URL column with their URL blog address to get me noticed and visit their blogs. Whatever the motives are, I appreciate them.

But, that doesn't mean I don't appreciate my readers who don't comment in this blog. I know some of you may choose to be my silent readers. Just reading my blog without giving your comments. Or you think that you don't really need to comment. Or whatever the reasons are, still reading this blog and being my loyal readers (hell, like you have one, Kim!) are the most important things for me. Believe me, they sure are.

I'm not crazy about numbers, like how many comments in each blogposts. I don't care. What's the point you have many commentators in your blogposts but their comments are confusing? For example, you write that you like blue, but one person comments says that you like red. Or, you write that you buy a book in X bookstore and you tell your readers how much your book price is, but one person still asks where do you buy it and how much it is. It is confusing me because it makes me wondering is it my writings are not clear enough or what? Or my writings are difficult to be understood? Or they just skimming when they read my blog? And, oh, I hate spammers.

So, I close this blogpost with the same question I've asked you in the opening: How important is it for you a comment in your blog?

  5. how important? hmmmm... I love comment in my blog, and I enjoy reading it. But, lately I kinda lazy to comment back.  I think it's important, but not the most important one. And it's not guarantee that lots of comments means the blog is superb. Most of my favorite blogs has few comments. And in my blog itself, some of my favorite post has no/just a few feedback.

    I think it's same like books. some time, the best selling or books that people talking about the most, is not always your favorite one.
    pokoknya gitu deh...
