Many people try to encourage comments by saying things like, “Please leave your comments.” Sometimes that works (and yes, sometimes I do that in places like Twitter), but if you really want to get them talking, ask SPECIFIC questions. Use your question in your subject lines and then ask them again in the blog post.
For example, if you’re writing about a massage technique that you think could be effective ask something like, “Would You Do This? Controversial Massage Technique” in your subject line and then at the end of your blog entry ask, “Would you ever do this?” or something similar.
