If two monologues do not make a dialogue…
…and if there’s no conversation, can there possibly be a relationship? These things I ponder as I stare into the abyss of an empty comments field. I recently stumbled upon Why No One Comments on Your Blog and What to Do about It, so I thought I’d attempt to answer some of these questions, and ask you to answer some yourself in the comments field below.
- Do you have a bad comment system? I don’t think so. It’s a WordPress blog. I think they know what they’re doing, but what do you think?
- Do you have a poor site design? – It’s getting old. Maybe I need a makeover?
- Do you blog as a corporate entity? – Uhhh… Yes, but I try to add some color and humor and value for visitors. How’s that working out?
- Do you say anything original? – I’ve written about the Kronos cloud using about 437 metaphors.
- Do you have a boring writing style? – Do I?
- Do you ignore interaction? – No!
- Do you ask for comments? – Does this time count?
- Do you write anything really compelling? – This is the audience participation part…
- Do you ever get controversial? – See #3 above.
- Bonus question: Should I just go back to being a carnival barker?
Kronos customers, partners, competitors, and employees… I know you’re out there, and I lust for your comments, but please keep them lustless. Reading comments after a post or article on any controversial subject can be quite depressing.
