My experiment with turning off blog comments is over. I don’t think it did any good at all. While my hits are up in the time since I turned off commenting, I don’t think it has anything to do with the comments being off. I think it has more to do with my social presence increasing and the sales of my ebooks rising.
So I’ve decided to open up comments on all posts from today onward. I’ll still be posting custom notices on Google+ and automated ones on Twitter, so folks know when this blog is updated. If you’d rather comment on either of those social networks, there’s a better than average chance I’ll see you there.
But for those who prefer to comment directly on the blog, rejoice!
