Over on Blogging Tips there is a post entitled “Get Your Comment Count Jumping”, and in it are some tips to get readers to comment on your blog. This is something that almost all bloggers fight with. We find ourselves questioning “is anyone really reading what we have to say?”

My biggest suggestion is to show others how it is done by commenting on other blogs, starting conversations with the writers of your favorite blogs, and the people that comment on their blogs.
