Articles, tips and suggestions on things that you can do to support conversation on and around your blog, and build a sense of community.
THINK ABOUT WHAT COMMUNITY MEANS TO YOU
There’s a general trend towards conversational blogging and building a community site, but you don’t have to blog in that way (and indeed lots of people don’t).

WRITING WITH COMMENTS IN MIND
If you want to generate conversation and build community, you’ll need to adapt your writing style to leave more ‘room’ for your readers. This takes a bit of adjusting to, including shifting your mindset so you’re less of an authority, and more of a host, encouraging and inviting the views and perspectives of others. Ask questions, ask stories and involve others to participate, if someone has written something about the same topic ask them to share, rephrase your questions and write them from different angles as again from another perspective. Focus on problems and give room for problem solvers, I hope you got what else could be included in this list.
