Blogging Fine Points: Comments On Or Off?

Small Business Trends: Blogging Fine Points – Comments On Or Off?

The reasons to allow comments on your small business’s blog entries are several, but if you allow them, it means having to manage them and possibly putting up with spam and flamers.

“It’s a timeless debate: When you start a blog do you turn comments on to get a discussion going or do you keep them off so you don’t have to moderate them?

Personally, I’ve always believed that your small business blog needs comments. As a blogger and community person, I enjoy sharing and reading new opinions. I tend to believe that the comments are where the real magic happens within a blog. However, I realize an argument can be made on both sides. I’m actually noticing that many of the blogs I once loved are now making the decision to turn OFF comments, either citing SEO or time issues.”
