Blog comments are a relic from a bygone era.
That’s the word on the street, isn’t it?
In its heyday, a blog comment was powerful. Write good comments and they could land you on the radar of a popular blogger — the kind of super-connected influencer who could accelerate your success.
But that was then, right?
Today, readers have turned to Facebook and Instagram for their commenting fix. Spammers have taken over. And, as a result, some blog owners have done what would’ve once been unthinkable: turned off their comments.
So, game over. Blog comments are dead. Stick a fork in them.
Not so fast.
