Recently I opened up my SP page to comments. Initially, I thought who has time to monitor and follow-up on comments? Certainly not me, in grad school full-time and searching for work. Then...I took the risk, and at the urging of a few SP friends, and thought~ what the heck! Go for it!
What I've discovered is a pure joy and blessing! To find these li'l jewels decorating my page~ sweet words of encouragement and wisdom cheering me on, or someone sharing "That's my story, too!" Bottom line: We have far more in common than we do differences.
Take a risk? O! I'm sure glad I did. ;)
