Lack of comments

Today I'd like to try to explain the lack of comments on my articles. First off, in order to comment, you need to be a member of Vox. Even if you don't intend to start a blog with your account, you need the account to post comments. And it's free, by the way.

Next, I would like to complain about the requirement of membership for posting comments. Vox gives the blogger different levels of control over viewing and commenting. Each one has corresponding levels, for example, "friends and family" however for view control, I mark all my published posts with "the world (public)." This means anyone can read my posts. The corresponding level for that in comment control is "everyone" but it is not really everyone. It is only everyone who is a member of Vox. I appreciate the controls, but I think it needs one more which would really be everyone. I should be allowed to decide if the comments are acceptable or not. If this option was available, I would surely already have a few more comments.

Finally, I don't advertise my blog. I don't ask people to come and read it. I don't beg people to become members of Vox so that they can comment on my blog. I'm not trying to be popular. If anybody does decide to post a comment, I'll know that it was genuine and sincere.

Thank you for your comments.
