Today's topic: PEOPLE
My goal is to make my blog more friendly and make it easier for people to comment.
I read through the recap of today's Twitter Chat on comments and blog friends and a few suggestions I will try. One idea was to use DISCUS for comments so that the person making a comment gets a notification when I reply to their comment. Brilliant plan only thing, I am a chicken when it comes to adding outside functionality to my blog involving me adding something to the html. Has anyone had any experience with adding discus to blogger? Any suggestion you have for me would be gratefully accepted.
The other thing I got out of the recap is that comments should be viewed as a type of conversation. If I am friendly and visit other sites and make thoughtful comments that blogger is likely to do the same. I am in the process of adding a blog roll to my blog of my favorite blog sites to visit which will encourage me to visit those sites more often. I also want to figure out how to make a HEADFULLOFBOOKS button that others can add to their blog, if they so choose making it easier to find their way back to me. No promises that will happen any time soon. I suspect I need my son-in-law's help on that one.
