To be like all the cool kids and join the Web 2.0 world of community rather than isolated islands I’ve updated my blog template to use Disqus for comments rather than the inbuilt solution.
All the old comments are still there, they just don’t show up on the homepage but if you click through to a post (eg this one) then you see any old comments but also the new disqus comment block.
I know there’s a bunch of services out there – coComment (which is built into Blog Engine) and IntenseDebate spring to mind but I prefer the feel and community at Disqus.
Give it a try. Leave a comment. Tell me what you think. I think it’s the start of what I asked for when I blogged about MeGC – now you can see what inspires me to join the conversation and also see any comments to this blog in one place – and it even integrates with other services like FriendFeed to spread the conversation.
