    This has raised my awareness that I should have some type of written policy of use and/or rules for comments by visitors. It has also confirmed my own feeling that I do not have to keep comments that I feel do not contribute to the topic of discussion or that do not benefit my readers or serve the community. Thank you.

    Thanks. Wish you could have condensed this video.

    I need a lot more info of Blogging.

    I haven’t found my ideal theme for my blog. I am more a commentator, critic, explorer. How do I invite healthy debates? How do I create a followering/community and get MORE readers?

    The panel discusses that a way to build your blog community is to comment on blogs that are similar to your own, but that you shouldn’t include a link to your blog. So how exactly do people get to know your blog from the comments you post then?? Thanks.

    It is interesting to find a video on comments and how to steamline them to make the blog better.

    I like Dave Taylor’s statement ‘I own the comment’ and indeed its something worth practicing. I hold the opinion that comments should be done only when you have something meaningful, and not just comment for the sake of it or to get attention.

    So I would use the above and in cases where it is better to lay the rules I would display ‘Thanks but my rules on comments’

    I would like to bring it to the readers’ knowledge that the spam comments also eat away a share of your page rank as a fraction to the number of links on your blog.

    For Birdee:

    One of the best books on blogging that I’ve read is ProBlogger, this guys have their homework. You should be able to get the book almost anywhere.
    I also suggest to subscribe on their blog. They send good information on a daily basis. Hope it helps
