    One of the benefits of Blogging

    An author has to wait months between finishing his/her book and reading the reviews, but bloggers get to read their readers’ comments the same day they click ‘publish’.

    This makes blogging a great way to get feedback on an idea that you want to develop further. Having an outside perspective and a little bit of constructive criticism is invaluable.

    not necessarily, if you blog doen't have good , engaging traffic you may never get comments. Just because you hit the publish button means nothing if you have no traffic. Blogging is not as easy as people think, it takes work and long term commitment to build a readership

    If you write amazing contents and gain a huge number of followers you can make blogging a source of income. However, the most important thing is how your contents have influenced and helped your readers.

    However unless you have a major blogging site on the net, most of your comments are probably going to be worthless spam
