What is a Comment?
Comments usually appear on the area right after the blog post content, along with the commenter’s name, date, and time they left the comment.
The comment area can be a great way for you and your readers to build a community around your blog. Readers can give feedback, ask questions, or provide their own point of view on the topic.
