Who owns the comment section: the blog writer or the blog readers?
In my opinion, the blog writer owns the comment section. I’m all for community, sharing ideas, blah, blah, blah. When it comes down to it, the blog writer has control over the comment section. If the writer doesn’t like a comment, they don’t have to approve it. I have several comments waiting for my approval at this very moment.
I approve most comments. The few times that I don’t approve a comment, the commenter has left a spammy link or a link that doesn’t make sense. Sorry vinegar lovers, I will not be approving the comment about the uses of vinegar today. Probably not tomorrow either.
It’s good to be the boss. 🙂
