I think it is as easy to comment on my blog as it can be. Here are the things I do to make things easy:
- I do not 'moderate' because people like to see their posts published immediately. This is a validation for them especially if they are new to the blogging process.
- I do not use the spam screening letters, whatever they are called, because I hate, hate HATE them!! I think they are a real barrier to comments. I was concerned that I would get a lot of spam but thus far, I have only had a couple of spam comments which I have deleted ASAP.
- I 'allow' anyone to comment, even in an 'anonymous' form. Requiring people to have an account is hugely off-putting, especially if they are casual readers or new to blogging.
