Why turn off comments on a blog?

For a while now I have been turning comments on and off on this blog. I feel a blog goes through stages of life and usefuleness as other projects get more attention. This is no longer the blog it used to be, no longer sucking in comments like an industrial vaccum cleaner.

Most of my good stuff goes elsewhere these days, mostly on clients blogs.

The manipulative art of conversation is more important than ever these days, but there are many ways to create a bit of chatter.

I still have comments open on other blogs. It’s not that comments are bad, it’s just something to consider is the situation requires it.

So to that seo company that is trawling my historical comments for a bit of pointless blog spam. sorry guys, the party is over.

Graywolf has also decided to walk down the non hectoring route of no comments.

And of course you can’t comment on this post, which leads me to believe that you agree with absolutely everything I have said.
