Chapter 9. Group Blogging > Enabling Commenting on Your Blog

Enabling Commenting on Your Blog

You can create your own little version of Metafilter by enabling commenting on each post of your blog. Some blogging providers offer commenting as a built-in feature, and all you have to do is choose whether you want comments turned on or off. Other blogging providers suggest that you go out and find an independent provider of commenting and add the feature to your blog yourself.

Adding commenting to your blog means that every time you publish a post, your readers can attach their response to the post (see Figure 9.4). This is an opportunity for interesting or entertaining dialog between you and your readers, which can grow from the original post and bring more content to your site. The worst-case scenario is a bunch of jerks heckling you on your blog. The chances of this happening are not so high if you know your audience and have a loyal following. Plus, you can always delete offending remarks— you’re the boss!
