So here's this weeks question: What is the best way to get readers to comment your blog posts?
Well, if they are going to comment then you need to visit them on a regular basis and comment on their posts. With some this still doesn't work, but for the most part if you're leaving meaningful comments on their blog posts most will eventually comment on your blog. Some folks don't get that though.
Another way is to ask a question. I get more comments on my 'Wednesdays Question' posts than any other.
