A blogger always wishes to have loads of comments in his kitty,but not many are able to get that going. I went up many popular blogs and found out few tips which will surely help you get some.

Interact with your readers:
I see many bloggers leave out comments just like that , they don’t even reply to comments. No one will ever like to comment back again if his previous comment is not heard of. Always try to reply every comment you get and ask them questions back if possible to keep them engaged.
Give Subscription to comments:
Some times it happens that you get several replies to the comment but author of the comment does not reply. It happens because he is not aware of what is happening on the site he left the comment . Always give your readers an option to subscribe to comments so that every time there is a reply they will be notified.

This is one of the most fascinating wasy to get comments. This is also a step to show respect to your commentators. Put some give aways or an ad-slot for the winners, which will surely be appreciated by them. You can check out the top commentator award at techfreakblog as well.
Do-follow your commentators
Well many generally don’t like this thing and even I have not done it yet but certainly I am planning to do it soon. This gives your commentators a link to their blog which useful for their SEO. Important reason for many blogs not making themselves do-follow is because of the google page rank affect.
