Tags: This Blog is Self-Referential
Whenever I have significant work to do that isn’t panic-worthy, I always end up blogging or playing around with Firefox* add-ons to
avoid working take a break between work periods. Therefore, it is no surprise that I will be adding two new comment-love WordPress plugins to this site, both of which I found via John Chow.
The first, Subscribe to Comments 2.0, is a plugin I’d seen in action and wanted to use but never knew where it came from. It’s nothing huge; just a little check-box by the comment form that lets you subscribe to the given conversation by email. I’ve subscribed to email comments in this manner once or twice, so I know it works.
The second, Show Top Commentators, is a little reward for frequent commenters to my site. A list in the sidebar shows my top ten commenters as well as a link to their blog, meaning they’re rewarded with blog traffic as well as google-love. I really like this idea, because I can return the joy of getting a comment back to the commenter via the joy of getting a link. It’s implemented on my sidebar, check it out!
So there’s some incentive to comment! I love getting them, and you’ll love leaving them! And that, my friends, makes a happy internet.
*Heehee! Firefox just spell-checked itself. L-O-L!
