Every person who is serious about blogging perfectly knows that a comment from your reader is 
much more than just a couple of words. The number of comments, which can be found under this or that post, is considered to be a sign of your blog's maturity and popularity. Moreover, comments on your blog are a great indicator of your relationships with the audience.
Just think for a moment: each and every comment that appears on the pages of your blog, represents the reaction of one reader concerning what you wrote. And this reader, regardless of whether he agrees with you or not, finds your publication so valuable that he has not only finished reading it to the end, but also expressed his own opinion on the subject, spending all his precious time and energy.

Therefore, every self-respecting blogger wants to increase a number of comments for every post to maximum, and get as much backlinks as possible.

Reasons can be different: some of your readers just don't consider their opinion be valuable for you and other visitors; other ones decide to comment on your post later (we all know that later often means never), etc.

If you write that you are open for comments, the chances to get them from readers increase at once.

2. Motivate a reader to say something
There is one trick that perfectly works in journalism, and it may help your blog too. Don't tell everything to your reader, leave some details and nuances hidden.
