So saying he unbuckled his baldric with the bugle, took a feather from his cap, and gave them to Wamba; then drew a vizard from his pouch, and, repeating his charges to them to stand fast, went to execute his purposes of reconnoitring. The knight, in order to follow so laudable an example, laid aside his helmet, his corslet, and the greater part of his armour, and showed to the hermit a head thick-curled with yellow hair, high features, blue eyes, remarkably bright and sparkling, a mouth well formed, having an upper lip clothed with mustachoes darker than his hair, and bearing altogether the look of a bold, daring, and enterprising man, with which his strong form well corresponded. Besides these bands, a less orderly and a worse armed force, consisting of the Saxon inhabitants of the neighbouring township, as well as many bondsmen and servants from Cedric’s extensive estate, had already arrived, for the purpose of assisting in his rescue.

Few of these were armed otherwise than with such rustic weapons as necessity sometimes converts to military purposes. Boar-spears, scythes, flails, and the like, were their chief arms; for the Normans, with the usual policy of conquerors, were jealous of permitting to the vanquished Saxons the possession or the use of swords and spears.

      This can even encourage the reader to leave his own opinion about certain topic, thus adding value of the whole post. Surely, such a result benefits everybody, even including those who are just reading and sit quiet on the sidelines.

        One more important thing is about bloggers. Reading through the post comments is the easiest way for him to understand what people need to know, what are they curious about. That helps the author to figure out what other topics to write about and possibly what other products to create.

    First of all, let’s discuss a social proof aspect of commenting. It is just like how you see a ridiculously long line at the store. Does it attract your attention? Surely! The same works with blogs – a relatively large amount of comments sparks curiosity and grabs people’s attention.

    Blog isn’t really a blog without comments. That is not just about publishing the content, blogging is a process of community building through communication aspects.
