- Hey Inquisitive writers! So, are you wanting more blog comments? Doesn’t every blogger want comments on their blog post?

To be honest, I guiltily like it when I get notifications when I get comments on my blog. It means people valued my post enough to comment on it. But here I’m going to show you how to get more comments, easy-peesy. Although there are other ways to try to get more comments (like essentially growing your blog), that would indirectly get you more comments, but that’s for another post.
1: Ask direct questions at the end
If you read my blog, you might’ve noticed that I ask questions at the end of my posts. Note how I almost never just ask “What do you think?” or “What are your thoughts?” because those questions are too vague and could relate to anything. I always ask questions that relate to the post, so I can target the reader that’s reading the post.
2: Fix your comment section
Can your readers even comment on your post? I’ve read some blogs, and then I couldn’t comment on them, or I would get a warning message if I tried to comment. To check if your readers can comment, log out of your account, and try to comment on one of your posts. If it works, great! If not, try to fix it ASAP, so your readers can comment on your blog.
3: Actually reply to your comments
One of my pet peeves of blogging (and I’m pretty sure many other people can relate) is when people don’t reply to my comments on their blog. This will keep me (and other potential followers) away from your blog in the future, because I took the time to put a nice comment on your blog, and you don’t say a simple “Thank you.” I talk about this more and other things like that to avoid below ↓
4: Consider writing about debatable topics
I sometimes write about friendly debatable topics on my blog. But why? I like giving my opinion on certain things, and it gets me many comments from people with similar or different views. I honestly like debate! My most recent post about a debatable topic is down below ↓

5: Try guest posting
If you guest post on a blog with a lot of readers, it can attract a new audience to your blog, therefore there is a high chance for more people to comment on your blog. It’s basically a win-win situation, you get to promote your blog, and the blogger who’s allowing you to guest post gets a break from blogging. I’ve tried guest posting a couple of times, and I can say that it works if you do it with a blogger with a lot of readers.
So, did this post help you in any way? Do you have any tips to get more comments?
