Previously I made a post about using a new commenting system called Disqus. I originally installed it in hopes that it would make commenting easier, when in actuality, it seemed to make commenting more difficult for some; furthermore, I had to put a lot of trust in the company for hosting all of the lovely comments I get. However because of some recent technical issues I’ve been seemingly having due to using Disqus—comments getting eaten and not showing up being my main issue—I’ve decided to uninstall the plugin. So, here on Familial Ramblings, we are again using WordPress’ default commenting system. What does this mean? You have to fill out two to three lines when you leave a comment, not a huge sacrifice in my opinion; at least you know your comments won’t get eaten. Now, I can hear you asking me what is this “CommentLuv” I speak of in the title and I’m glad you asked!
CommentLuv is a new system I’ve put in place to benefit all of those who comment on my blog. It’s a fantastic plugin, created by Andy Bailey, which I’ve been reading about for the past few days. With CommentLuv, if you leave a comment on Familial Ramblings, you are able to select from a list of your 10 most recent blog posts to choose to be displayed below your comment. These links are “Do-Follow” links, meaning it’ll help you with link building and SEO. So, you may be wondering what possessed me to add this new plugin.
I wanted a way to say “thank you” to those who do leave comments on my blog. You’ll never know how much I truly appreciate when you stop by and take the time to read and comment on Familial Ramblings. It means a great deal to me and I wanted to give back. I thought this would be one a great way of doing that. I hope that you enjoy CommentLuv and I hope that you keep coming back to read my posts and leave me some comments!
P.S. Please do not abuse this system! Remember to leave comments that are relevant to the topic of the post otherwise your comment may be removed without warning.
What are your thoughts on the new installation of CommentLuv and the removal of Disqus?
