Tip #2 Grow your social media followers
At the beginning, you won’t have many fans or followers, so reaching them and getting them to read your blog and comment on it will seems even harder.
You need to focus on growing a good following. A certain percent of that following will be reading and interacting with your blog posts, so the more followers you have, the better.

Tip #3 Check that your commenting system is easy to use
Because you don’t actually comment on your blog yourself, you may have no idea that your commenting system prevents people from adding comments. Or that it’s so cumbersome to use, many people feel discouraged and leave without posting a comment.

Tip #4 Install the CommentLuv plugin
Many people are checking if you offer them a way of providing a link back to their site and they decide to comment or not based on that.
It should not be this way, since your content is really great anyway, but it really is… so why not doing the best you can to attract more commenters?
Tip #5 Be a social blogger
Do your part and help out other bloggers with comments, shares, and by reading their posts.
Check out blogging communities, blog challenges, and other groups where bloggers are hanging out. Here are some ideas for you:
Search for blogging groups or entrepreneur groups on Facebook. Many of them have blog commenting activities. You can simply enter “blogging” on the Search box in Facebook and click the Groups tab, you’ll get plenty of groups you may want to join.
Join blog traffic challenges to get tips, but most importantly, accountability to blog consistently and grow your blog.
Participate in blog link parties and activities.
