Help the Commenter
Last Thursday I moaned a bit about the pain of commenters.
The desire to interact, to communicate with the blogger, which is sometimes not really possible.
But it is easy for us bloggers to help our reader, our commenter to interact.
We all love the little checkbox “Notify me of follow-up comments via email”
It makes it so easy for our readers to follow the comments of our blog.
So why not setting it up?
How do I set it up?
That’s quite easy. I can show you the way for a WordPress-blog, but I am pretty sure any other blog-software has a similar checkbox. And probably the way is similar too.
Just log yourself into your blog.
You will land at dashboard.
Now scroll down the left sidebar until the topic “Setting”.
Scroll down, after you have clicked discussion.
You will find a section that allows to “enable sending comment replies via email”.
For those who don’t trust the antispam-software or plugin we have all installed.
Just check in the very “Settings – Discussion” area, that an administrator = YOU has to approve any comments!
So you will gain full control over all comments and can lead a successful discussion.
