What if all blog sites no longer allowed comments? Would you still want to write your thoughts, experiences for others to see? Or is feedback a main reason for your blog?

Hi Ann,

I definitely would keep blogging if I couldn't get comments, because I'm a writer first and foremost (heck, I used to keep a diary! Who sees that?). I kind of wonder, though, about the value of commenting myself. How often do we all comment because we're really interested in what a blogger has said, or because we're looking to drive traffic to ourselves?

For example ... do you comment on a great blog post -- even if you'll be the fiftieth or hundredth commenter, and probably nobody will see it? I have to be honest. Usually, I don't.
I know what you mean about commenting on a very popular post. I feel invisible once it gets to a big number.
I like the feedback VERY much! I have my comments emailed to me and I read and enjoy every single one! I would probably blog even without the comments...but I would miss them!
Me too!
I do it for my own self. So it doesnt matter to me. Basically an online diary that is viewable to ones I allow. No comments are fine by me.
Good question, Ann. I'm sure I'd keep blogging because I love writing, but I also enjoy the community of blogs, which is why I've narrowed my freelancing focus to blogging!
Teri, thanks for your response :->

Mary, I agree. I like the community of blogging as well.
I like feedback, but I'd almost be relieved if comments weren't allowed...because then I wouldn't feel the need to please so much when I write.

I started my blog to get me writing everyday and so I'd write whether or not anyone visited, but it sure is nice to not feel like a tree in a silent forest!
I can totally relate to this! :->
I totally agree!! I've always loved writing, and blogging is a great way!
I would definitly keep blogging if there were no comments. I do love reading what my readers have to say forsure, but I write just as though I was wrighting in a journal, only I dont run out of ink, or get a hand cramp!! I love blogging and will continue, with or without comments.
And because of your intriguing, terrific answer I am zipping over to your blog right now!
