Some Random Dude has decided to reward good comments in his blog by contributing a certain amount for every good comment in response to one of his posts.

He calls it "Comment Love". I call it a great idea.

He blogs on a topic I find interesting - design in a fairly general sense - and while I don't always agree with his views he normally manages to spark a pretty good conversation in response to his posts.

I don't know if it's the comment love or just the general tone but it makes a good read, and there's that little karmic glow every time you make a worthwhile contribution to the discussion.

I'm all in favor of bloggers making a living but I love it when they find a way to give back as well. Maybe I should take off the ads (but they do pay for the hosting!)

BTW: Fred Wilson (who I linked to as an example of bloggers making a living) does actually donate his ad revenue to charity as well.
