Critique This Blog #9: Family Musings

Today we're critiquing Family Musings. Author Jennifer writes:

I've been writing here since April of 2006. It was initially intended as a place to journal my pregnancy for my family and friends. Then, I discovered the wider world of blogging and have made so many new friends. Now, my blog has posts about my daughter, tons of pictures, occasional product reviews, giveaways, and thoughts about being a mom. Google Analytics says I have had over 1,500 unique visitors in the last 30 days. But for some reason, that just isn't translating into an active commenting community. What am I missing? Also, I recently had to redesign my site and I am interested in feedback on that aspect as well. Thanks!
Readers? Do your thing! How can Jennifer build an "active commenting community"? What do you think of her blog's design?
