Would you rather have more blog readers or more blog comments?
At first, I'm really inclined to say comments, because I love the interaction that comes with comments and have made some bloggy friends because of reciprocal comments.
But, when I really think about it, readers are a little more important to me. Just knowing that my blog is out there and getting read is very satisfying, and without readers, there would be no comments, right?
Then, again, I rarely check my stats, mostly because my readership is quite low and I sometimes I find that depressing.
I guess that brings me back to comments. Those truly make me smile! Even if I only got one comment on every post, I would be elated.
Of course, I'm not always the best at leaving comments, so I suppose I shouldn't expect that from my readers, either. Sometimes I'm just too busy or I'm reading the post
days weeks after it was published or I don't think I could add anything that hasn't already been said.
I am definitely more inclined to leave a comment on a post that has less than 10 or so comments than one that has more than that.
Ok, ok. IF I have to choose, I choose comments! :)
Since I'm not a stats checker, comments let me know someone is
reading enjoying what I have to say.
Which do you prefer - more blog readers or more blog comments?
