Comments Bite Back!

I registered with backtype the other day. I quite like it as a way of seeing where I’m commenting and on what! Speed movie Matt pointed out that he couldn’t see the point of it, but I quite like the idea of using their widget to show other people what I’m commenting on and what I’ve said (beats a blogroll any day in my opinion!).

To All Commentors & Lurkers!

The Lion King 1½ ipod Apparently all commentors fit into categories (via Alexia), which are you? Also if you lurk here and read but don’t comment – what would make you comment (and which category would you belong in!?!?).

Editing Spam

I read an interesting post today by Lorelle at WordPress (now given the article Lorelle wrote that will sound just like spam, but it’s not….. Lorelle makes a really interesting point in her article). The interesting point isn’t about the spam, although she quite rightly points out some of the comment spam that you can look for that you may have let through in a weak moment (drunk, tired, had enough, just shutting down the PC etc.). The interesting point is the fact that rather than just deleting the spam comment, if it adds value to the discussion you might as well keep it – but if you do decide to keep it, remove it’s value: Change the commenter’s name…. Continue reading »

Timesaving: Commenting within Google Reader

I never realised how much time you could save if you could comment on a blog directly within Google Reader….. Think about it – no more opening up 72 tabs, commenting, remembering which ones to close etc etc. With the amount of items in my reader I really, really don’t have time for all of that! Then I saw Lorelle’s post on using a Grease Monkey script to read full blog posts and comment on blogs all from within Google Reader: Google Reader Preview Enhanced You’ll need the Grease Monkey extension before you can use it – but it does look fantastic, I’ll be giving it a go when I get a chance. Alright I admit it, I got to… Continue reading »

Showing some Luv!

I’ve installed CommentLuv here today, to reward my comment authors more (particularly now the comment policy is in force and I feel perfectly happy about blowing away any comments that are spammy or I don’t like! 😉 ) We all love comments, but CommentLuv takes this one step further and places a direct link to the comment authors latest post – underneath the comment. They promote both their site (using the URL field of the comment), and their latest post – now that is quite a reward for engaging with you! It will automatically fetch your latest post from your feed to display it and in the latest version the comment author can specify their feed by putting their feed… Continue reading »

Commenting Policy in Force!

I’d planned on doing this for a while, and just hadn’t got around to it. Today’s the first day I’ve really had to think about it – getting a comment from a Pomegranate Fruit has prompted it a little bit – but not entirely (I’ve let that one slide, purely because Mr/Mrs/Miss Fruit makes some quite good points in the comment!). The Commenting Policy, and Legal Notices have been on another of my sites for full time so it’s about time they were introduced here!
