Here is a simple question for you. Would you prefer to have more readers or more comments on your blog? Or does it matter to you.
After five years of blogging I think that I have established that I am going to blog regardless of whether people read or comment. Still, I won't lie and say that I wouldn't prefer more of both. It is nice to know that people are paying attention to what is going on.
At the same time I always remind myself to be careful what you ask for because you just might get it. Sometimes the dream is a bit different from the reality.
