Would anyone still read and comment on my blog if it were hosted elsewhere?

Personally, if I'm honest, probably not. The only reason I find time to hit up the blogs here is because it's one click away from a page I spend a lot of my time working in. I have loads of people with offsite blogs that are forever nagging me to visit more often, but I can't find the time.
If any of you read this, stop the nagging!

I wouldn't unless you link all your entries here and I don't have to sign up to comment. As EmP said blogs here are so convenient but if they go somewhere else I most likely won't chase after them.

If I'm to be completely honest... no. Probably not. Unless you had your entries on LiveJournal, in which case I may read them periodically since I use that service and could add you as a friend. I'm just too lazy to go to a bunch of different places online for the blogs. That's why I set up the blogs here, in hopes that the gamer types I know on this site would make things easy on me. So far, my plan is working (mwa ha ha ha ha!)...

Yeah, sorry. I have to agree with everyone else. It's just too inconvenient to go to some other site I'd probably never visit otherwise just to read a blog. It's better if you just keep them here (if you're looking for our attention)

Settled, then. Cheers for feedback.
Was toying with the idea of incorporating my blog as part of a personal website, but probably not the best idea at this stage.
Maybe when I'm dead famous 'n' that ;)
