I don't know that I crave comments exactly, but I sure do appreciate them as I like reaching out to people and I enjoy getting feedback (either positive or negative) about how something I wrote about affected them.

There are several techniques to getting more comments.

1) Comment or email people back and thank them for their comment, and respond to something they said personally. People, including myself for sure, like to feel heard.

2) In your post, leave your opinions a little open ended, and ask for added opinions or further discussion. A simple "What do you think" or "Do you agree?" or "Do you have anything to add?" can elicit lots of responses.

3) Focus on growing your blog bigger. As it gets bigger, you will naturally draw more comments. But remember that usually only 5-10% of all your readers will ever comment, so that is not necessarily the best indicative of how well your blog is doing. :) I get a lot of readers who do not want to put themselves out there on the internet as much, emailing me behind the scenes with questions or encouragement.

Hope this helps a little!

I suspect that the urge to have more comments is the urge for adult conversation. I don't crave "Ooo, nice picture" comments as much as "I identify with what you are saying and where you are coming from" comments. And the best way I have found to get those is to comment on like minded bloggers posts and to reply to those who do comment on their own blogs.

Um...no. Not really. Gimmee a "ooo, nice picture" comment any day--I love them all!

Very cool Lisa P. I will look into this!
It definitely works. I just joined a pack.
Just leave your feed and twitter and remember to return the favor to your pack. Its neat.
I do. And I get so few, I feel like jumping up and down and screaming when one finally shows up :-)
Hubby caught me one day going around with a foolish grin one day and when I explained about the comment, he just didn't get why a total stranger's words meant so much to me.
Comments are the holy grail of blogging. Proof that someone in the blogosphere is actually reading and reflecting on our thoughts and work. We all crave feedback. I am always appreciative of the time and effort someone takes to comment. Please visit me and comment. I am going to make an effort to be more active at commenting!

I am crazy for comments. I think it's a deep-seated void that I'm trying to fill with outside validation. Still, bring 'em on.
I too would love comments - I get them once in a while (the ones from a blog carnival or mommyfest don't count) - but would love them more! Any hints on how to spark them would be wonderful!
