Comments are usually welcome on most blogs but after a while they spoil the integrity of the blog.
I agree with you sometimes a blog can have way too many comments to, which may be good for the blog post but sometimes it's easy for your audience to get lost to.
A lot of bloggers don't look at it this way but I've seen some where I've wanted to leave or share a comment but there are so many I just felt like my comment wasn't needed!
