I understand the idea that comment sections aren’t worth it anymore. Not when there is so much spam and we all have active social media profiles.
However there was never a question in my mind of whether or not I’d allow comments. I enjoy reading the feedback an author gets, and it does often seem useful for the author. People should be free to ask questions on the post itself. Who would go to someone’s Instagram just to detail a question on a post and have to explain what post they mean?
I also believe it’s the author’s responsibility to moderate comments.
It seems to validate posts when there is feedback and make the blog feel more like an open conversation.
So I will be having them on my blog.
