When I see blogs with their ‘like’ or ‘comment’ features disabled.
I like to scroll down posts a lot in my Reader, and usually, I like what I see. My finger would automatically point to the ‘like’ (or even better) the ‘comment’ button. But if it’s gone, I get uncomfortable, and then just confused.
I mean, why would you disable it? The ‘like’ button is there for your readers to show their appreciation for a good read, and they can come back to the post in their Reader since they ‘liked’ it. It also shows what your readers like to read most, so it shows what your strength is in too.
And the ‘comments’ section… Holy shit aren’t comments the reason why blogs are created in the first place? So that you can gain interaction and feedback from your readers? If you disabled comments, might as well just write in a fucking diary instead.
