I remember the days when I first discovered popular technology blogs like Engadget, TechCrunch, Mashable etc. Those were the ‘early’ days of blogging and what shocked me was the ‘comments’ part. The blogs had, an average of 150 comments and most of them were very meaningful. Of course over the period of time the quality of comments has gone down and all you see is totally ‘off-topic’ or ‘+1’ type comments these days. Yet there are people who write meaningful comments.

Then I look at the Indian blogs that almost that are popular and have an average of zero comments. There are a few blogs that regularly get comments from people and those comments can be listed as follows –

…and that’s the case with people’s time-lines as well. Someone was ‘actively’ showing me the pics they had uploaded on their Facebook accounts as if it’s their lifetime achievement and their timeline was filled with –

We are an English (speaking) nation and we take pride in our English skills. I wonder why that pride doesn’t reflect in our online activities? Comment, will you?

    Indian blog writers do not know how to write blogs or solicit comments. Indians are also pretty dense people, and apart from using bollywood or nudity as themes, it is so difficult to get them to appreciate anything.

      @dimple – Please don’t generalize on the things. Some of the world’s greatest writings have come from here.
      PS. Are you by any chance a blogger? I would love to see your writing. 🙂
