After writing an article on the Top 15 Most Popular SAP SCN Blogs of 2011I wanted to shine some light on the top 10 blogs with the most comments in 2011. I have long believed that blog comments are underrated as they are often an indication of a controversial or important topic that has captivated the community. It is amazing how much great information can be found in the comment section and on occasion they are better than the original blog itself. Special thanks to Gali Kling Schneider, Sylvia Santelli and Jason Lax for helping me get the metrics (as of Dec 27) on the top 10 for last year.

Most of us who blog on the SAP Community Network are honored when people take the time to leave a comment and if we could all be like SAP Mentor Michele Crapo who does a great job of regularly leaving smart and well thought out comments SCN would be better for it. I want to personally encourage everyone reading this blog to spend some time over the next year and leave a comment for blogs that moved you, taught you something, made you happy, made you upset as we as a community will all become smarter because of it.
