A valuable insight about writing comments.

I noticed you don’t have too many comments here. Could be that you set the bar so high we’re all intimidated at the thought of being first.

Your piece is a useful reminder of a few key ideas, like the one about your first words being a headline. All too many times I have made a lame comment — “Really useful” — as a way to underscore my claps. But then, it just fritters away the opportunity to offer something substantive and almost diminishes the claps. If you feel that way, give more claps. We can give up to 50, so why be stingy? Does it cost us anything? We’re paying five dollars a month whether we give four claps or 44.

Thanks again.
