Blog Exercises: I Don’t Have Any Comments

Blog Exercises on Lorelle on WordPress.I hear this complaint frequently from new and long time bloggers.

“I don’t have any comments. How can I get more comments?”

First of all, let me explain something.

You don’t want comments.

Yes, that’s right. You do not want comments. At least not comments from anyone.

If you just want comments, be content with comment spam.

If you want good comments, be specific.

What you want is a discussion. You want interactivity. You want the social intercourse, to share your thoughts with others and have them reciprocate. You want dialog.

Now that you know you don’t want comments, how does that change things on your site?

How are you going to publish content that encourages interactivity? That opens up the conversation to become a dialog?

Blog Exercise Task from Lorelle on WordPress.We’ll talk more about how to do this later, but your exercise today is to figure out how to change your post content to encourage more interactivity.

Be brave. You can do it.

    I am not sure how to change the comment settings in order to start receiving comments. Is there any way you could help me with this issue please?

      It happens by default unless you turned off notifications. Check your notifications settings on your site.
