When you have are blogging for your business, there is nothing more discouraging than not receiving any comments when you post a new blog! You may or may not have a following but it is still disheartening when no one even takes the time to write a comment after reading your post!

If you don’t have any comments, you should make it as easy as possible for readers to leave a comment! Don’t make them go through hoops just to leave a simple comment. If you start having problems, then make it harder!
- Ask your readers a question. End your posts with a question and see if your readers will answer! You should ask general questions to try to make your comments section into a discussion area. However, if you do this, you will need to make sure that you take the time to reply and join in the discussion.
- Ask your readers what they want to learn about. This is helpful for two reasons. It can get a discussion going. It can also help when you need ideas for your blog. You may have quite a few topics to choose from the next time you have writer’s block!
