    is it smart to disable comments right away and re-enable once the site grows?

    If you are worried about spam, then yea, you can disable then re-enable later. Use a captcha to lesson your spam, and perhaps add a question for commenter (are you human?).

    I would suggest just manually approving comments throughout the whole time you own the blog. You can get some long tail traffic from your comments.
