Inviting comments on your blog can, at times, become a double-edged sword, as one blogger recently found.
One of the most satisfying elements of having your own blog, is the ability for the reader to comment instantly and give their view on your work straight after reading your post (should they choose to). For writers who have had works published in magazines and newspapers only to date, it must be somewhat frustrating at times – mustn’t it? - not knowing how their readers have responded to it. That is, not until a reader writes a letter or an email to the author/publication in response to the article (if they are so inclined to do so). So, how great that now, a writer/blogger/whatever you want to call yourself, can now getinstant feedback, with a click of a button (and perhaps the typing of a word verification)?
