    Truthfully, blog commenting is no longer vogue. Partly because many blog sites removed "do-follow" links from their comment sections so serial commenters went elsewhere ("great blog, loved the content" or "I had not considered that, thanks for the insight"). That is not a bad thing but it has pushed real commenters away too (or the algorithm for comments on the website sent the info to spam). How many of us go through our spam folders to look for quality comments? Very few. Instead those email addresses end up in comment purgatory and never make it to the publich articles. Secondly, those comments that do make it through are often not answered by the hosts so eventually people stop commenting. If you allow comments you MUST respond or risk losing activity altogether.
