Does your blog or website have a comment policy?
Healthy discussion is a key ingredient to any community driven website. If you’re goal is to grow your presence on the web with the use of a blog then you will be encouraging discussions via comments. I’ve been a long time fan of traditional website forums. I enjoy being on a forum because inmost cases anyone can start a thread within a topic, and post an article, question or a review about something and several others can join in the thread and begin conversing back and forth. I look at comments within a blog or website in a similar fashion. Comments can be used for good or evil however, and a great comment policy will help with achieving your goals for building a community.
