    You know how the only time people ever seem to add a review of a product online is when it’s rubbish or they were unsatisfied? Well I guess I’m kind of the same with blog posts. I only tend to comment if I feel something was wrong in the post or there was some sort of glaring omission – I think somewhere in the back of my mind I’m thinking it almost seems like the comment is actually useful then, because if the post is spot on it’s sometimes difficult to spark a discussion from there. It’s not really a conscious thing, and is a bit annoying really as I enjoy a “Great post!” comment as much as the next guy, so from this point on I think I’ll start commenting on people’s blogs more regularly, whether I’ve liked/enjoyed/agreed with the post or not!

    If you ask me a question, I answer! If I have a personal experience or view, I’ll post to your blog. But only if I don’t have to go through some drawn out registration process to be able to post my response.

    Steve’s right. In the main I reckon the average joe contributes if they think they are adding something to the pot rather than simply endorsing the blogger’s view.

    I hardly ever comment on blogs, except a handful run by 1) people who have something to say about 2) subjects of great importance (OK, stuff I think is important anyway) and 3) who actually want to engage in a conversation with their readers. A lot of bloggers are as bad as their mainstream, old media counterparts: I blog; you listen. It gives readers the same feeling of disengagement traditional media does.

    I like to comment a lot. Problem is, there’s just too many people to talk to. Asking questions, like you did for this post is definitely a way to get more comments. I also comment in regards to comments. If someone is saying something that I agree with or disagree, I want to respond to them directly. A blog is the best way to do that, because everyone can see the response. If only you could comment directly from feed readers!

    That’s a very good point – if people are reading on RSS readers then commenting becomes harder (while inviting comments also becomes one way to increase hits)

    Okay, I’m commenting:) I like to have a conversation! I think one rather than none comments is the most regrettable number as it’s good to talk as Bob Hoskins or whoever it was used to say.

    I comment to gain readers to my own blog through click-throughs.

    Well alright, that’s not the only reason, but it’s the best way of joining the ol’ blogosphere. Often I comment if I’ve really enjoyed a piece or, as some have said already, I disagree with it.

    Thing is, if I REALLY have something to say about a post, I tend to just blog about it myself anyway!

    If you actually do hit her a few times back, it won’t look favorable to you in court. They are mostly of the order of multi millions if not more. The fact that patent writing is a big business does not mean you pay big sums of money to obtain experienced patent attorney.
