Comments

I am pretty sure this blog has the fewest number of comments per a reader of any blog in the history of the Internet. I am not exactly sure why. Is it because nothing I write is interesting enough to comment on?

Nah, Paul Goble's Window on Eurasia never gets comments. A couple other blogs I follow get no comments, either. Cary had a blog for a long time with hundreds of followers and she almost never got comments. I think people generally comment when they read something that pisses them off, and that's about it.

Does Goble's blog allow comments? I think people comment for reasons other than anger. But, I do not even seem to get the angry comments anymore.

I read your blog regularly to follow what strikes me as an interesting, amiable, innocent (in the saint mode as opposed to the absent) and venturesome life. You haven't expressed opinions lately that made me want to say anything. Mostly I'm enjoying discovering Ghana through your experiences.

Yes, he allows comments. It's interesting to read about what you're doing in Ghana, but I generally can't think of anything to say, and I know you, so it's probably harder for someone who doesn't know you to comment.

Well, one of the nice things about Ghana is that it is not in international news much. It is a politically stable country with a growing economy. So I guess I am not going to be writing anything terribly controversial about Ghana today. Maybe when I put up some historical posts on Ghana and Africa there will be some dissent.

Most of what I put on here in the near future is going to be about Ghana. If only because I live and work here now. Although I am starting in earnest to work on my book on Russian-Germans in Central Asia again. So there will be some on that.
