Why Blog Readers Should Be Able to Contact You

Darren Rowse, on Problogger.net, put up a great post today about the lack of open contact on many blogs these days. He spent a bit of time trying to contact a writer on CNET’s Alpha Blog and was unable to.
He lists why comments are not really enough in the way of opening a dialogue.

  • Firstly it gives your readers a way to privately contact you
  • It gives readers a sense of power
  • It’s about accountability
  • It identifies problems
  • It opens opportunities

I really think it is a great read, and something I have noticed that I personally don’t do enough about, partially because any attempt I make at opening ways to contact me, leads to an increase in spam.
