I really agree with Susan Murphy’s point below mine about how once you have earned that access, treat it like it is important. Because it really is important to respect just how high that honor is.
Overall, I really enjoyed this article because it says a lot of things I agree with. The access you need sometimes is the access you should ask for, and not necessarily more. Don’t push it.

Getting comments on blogs is extremely tough for a site that doesn’t have a wide circulation. I wrote for a site that was getting just over 100 viewers a week and I felt like getting one comment every couple of months was a huge accomplishment.
Some of these tips are really good, others are obvious that don’t really work. Sometimes, you can post as many articles with topics that speak to people as you want and they still dont attract comments. I feel like getting comments requires some luck as well. Just finding the right audience that wants to be involved.
