Have to disagree - the majority of blogs (and certainly all 
blogging software should have this as an option) do allow 
comments; the reason is that they are essentially opinion 
pieces - you state your issue (point-of-view) and readers 
respond with their views.
If you just wanted to express your own views - with no
response possible - you may as well just have a web page.
A web forum is a different beast altogether - primarily 
designed for Q&A.

That's questionable.  The purpose of a blog ("web-log" or diary) is
of expressing your own thoughts to the world.  Accepting and
the readers' comments with a web interface is a nice feature, on blogs
as well as other types of websites, but it's by no means necessary.

Maybe what you're after is a web forum, not a blog?
