How to Generate Blog Comments

My readers are so quiet, I am always interested in ways to generate blog comments. Some ideas I have come across:

  • Express an opinion – share your opinion, indicate a personal preference 
  • Make a claim – tell readers what they should have or do, let them react to your assertion
  • Invite a response – ask readers for their opinions
  • Write a compelling headline – your headline should say something (perhaps target one of the first three ideas)
