Edited to add: After only 24 hours I have decided to remove Disqus. I liked the fact that I could finally leave nested comments and love the moderation/reply by email option however I was not willing to loose the ability to hyperlink to one's blog via their comment. Isn't the point of blogging to engage in a conversation? How is that possible when no one can find you (or your blog) through your comments to continue on that discussion. Back to searching for a better option!
Please be patient with me as I am trying out a new commenting system (Disqus) so that I will be able to leave replies directly under comments. I quite enjoy using blogger as a blogging system however I have been searching for the best way to reply to comments - email addresses are not always visible and if I reply to comments my reply goes directly to the bottom of the post. What I really wanted were the embedded comments that are possible with Wordpress and Typepad blogs - I hope that Disquis is the answer!
After adding Disquis I noticed comments left on the blogger commenting platform are no longer visible (I can still see them but you cannot). Please don't think that I removed your comments! I read each and every comment and it makes my day when you have something to say about my posts! I'm going to try this out for about a week or so to see how it works out.
Please, please, please feel free to leave me feedback on the Disquis commenting system. I want to know how easy it is to use and if it makes commenting and finding replies to your comments easier. I am hoping that this will help to facilitate more discussion on the Hands and Home blog!
Do you have a blogger account? If so what do you use for your comments?
