Why disable comments on a blog?

You read a great blog post that gives you a great desire to leave a feedback comment. But then you can’t find the comment box. What!? There is no comments enabled for that blog post.

This has to be one of my greatest frustrations with a new trend in blogs. The disabling of comments. Why would a blog do that?

It could be an issue if the sheer volume if comments means means that it is impossible to reply to and/or moderate. I’ve had quite a few new followers over the last month and recently I’ve been getting so many comments I’m finding it difficult to keep up.

It may also be that someone just doesn’t want to hear somebody else’s opinion.

I totally agree with you though – if I see something I enjoyed reading or have an opinion on I want to comment on it!


And forgive the mistakes – I’m doing this on my phone…

That’s a good point, Suzie. I added it as point five in the blog post. ๐Ÿ™‚


Thanks! Really enjoyed reading it!
