Did you ask them to comment?

I bet they will.

When someone writes a blog post that mentions me, sometimes I notice it, sometimes I don’t.

But every so often, the author emails me a note and asks me to comment, and I do.

If you really want comments and discussion on your blog, don’t just sit back and hope people stumble on the post. Drop a few emails to the people in the post and politely ask them to comment.

If you’re nice about it, and don’t get spammy, you’ll get a great response.
