Comments Expose the Commenters
Comments are real gems on a blog.
Most bloggers will be interested in getting comments on their blogs. Who will disagree about the importance of commenting on blogs? Bloggers will be happy to get engagements on their content.
Blogs with high views and likes but a few or no comments look like decorated dolls who looks pretty but can't initiate engagement with the audience.
Blogs with moderate views and likes but a decent number of meaningful comments shine like a competent speaker who knows the subject matter well.
You might experience lectures by popular speakers that get huge applause but no questions from the audience. Blogs without comments are almost the same.
Comments are like precious stones, and each reflects different spectra of light.
Comments and replies to the comments are essential to complete the cycle of engagements. Sometimes, they are not connected well. Then, they reflect different ideas in diverse directions, similar to light dispersion through a prism in its constituent colors.
Your comments speak about your sincerity, authenticity, and depth of knowledge about the topic on which you write comments. If you comment without reading the entire blog, your comments will look like disjoint and meaningless phrases.
You can judge the engaging audience from the comments. I often get comments on my blogs that are disjoint to the topics of my content. Those comments act as pieces of evidence of unmindful readers/users. I also get brilliant pieces of comments and replies to the comments that enrich my depth of knowledge.
Your comments can expose your inner self.
Many bloggers write very well. But, they are not spirited comment writers. They are probably afraid or shy to share their thoughts. They always avoid writing comments on others' posts.
Comments can unfurl the inner thoughts of the commenters. Comments can expose the mind of the commenters. Comments can bring out the authentic state of the comment writers.
However, if the comment writers hide their passion and write unrealistic and synthetic comments, the commenters may succeed in creating an imaginary identity. It is not uncommon to lose credibility as a creator due to inauthentic engagement.
Comments have the traits to bring out the authentic thinking of the commenters.
Exposing your inner mind through comments is an excellent way to unfurl the true identity of your authentic self.
It is a good practice to exercise the freedom of reading and writing comments.
However, it is up to the comment writers' willingness if they would write comments or remain completely aloof about commenting on blogs.
I don't hesitate to write comments on fellow bloggers' posts.
But, I always try to read the articles and then write a meaningful comment.
I try my best to avoid commenting on topics I don't understand.
Do you write comments on others' blogs?
What is your strategy for writing comments?

Totally agree! A comment, aside from it creates engagement between the blogger and the viewers, it would also serve as an inspiration for the bloggers to persevere. In addition, the bloggers can learn something from those comments—whether to improve, maintain and change something, such as the opinion and way or style of writing.
