Today’s blog post is more of question for you all. I’ve a question for you that is all about questions! Sounds confusing, right! But it’s simple – how do you feel about questions at the of blog posts?
Are you yay or nay on them? Do you read them? I do put them in at the end of discussion posts as I think they fit neatly in there and they give me a chance to ask the questions that I’d love to hear your responses on.
But on book review posts, I’ve given up putting them there. They always felt a bit thrown there randomly and were rarely answered anyway. I do like when I visit other blogs though when I see one as it can often give a focus to my comment on the post.
And I also value comments. They are one of the things that motivate me to keep blogging, I love when conversations happen and I feel by not leaving an open-ended question at the bottom of a blog post that I’m not leaving the door open for discussion. I want to foster connections and I really want to hear your thoughts and anything that encourages that is good by me. But I don’t want to do this in a way that feels artificial or forced.
So I’m just looking for feedback. Would you prefer to see a question or not, or do you not really care? What makes you comment after reading a blog post? Is it content that you connect with, or is it your way of letting the blogger know you visited and want to show support for them, or is it to answer a question? I’m feeling it’s the top two and the question is last. And this the root of my indecision. I want to encourage comments but I’m not sure that this will do it. On the other hand it definitely won’t hinder it.
