    Blogging & Comments System 

    I prognosticate in-line commenting will soon be a standard feature  of most blogs.

    Its a catch-22. If you have a blog with little traffic, like mine, you want folks to get what they came for fast and easy – so your homepage should be styled to give them what they want with minimum fuzz. That translates into lots of featured posts (all content visible on homepage).

    Now why would anyone leave a comment on a blog with little traffic like that? People are a little egocentric – why would they leave a comment when deep down they KNOW nobody but the blog owner is going to see it – To even leave the comment, the user has to go into the individual post page, and leave it there. For someone to see how clever that comment poster is, they would also have to go there – we all know that’s not going to happen. Why do you think Facebook works so well?

    We have Top Comments, Comment Luv, and Top Commenters, and Latest Comments plug-ins and widgets and shit… Well, how about just putting the damn comments where people can see them, Sherlock?

    When you post a comment on someone’s page on Facebook, it doesn’t just go on the page, it tells all YOUR friends about the fact that you posted some words of brilliant wisdom somewhere – and gives them a link. Disqus has the right idea on their commenting platform – What’s the point if folks don’t even get to it?

    Enter the in-line comment.

    If I could give my site visitors a can of spray-paint, I would.

    Anyway, enjoy the new quick-comment thing. Say hi to the Comment Monster when you see him. I wonder if I can use it for something elsewhere. I just had to have this developed – It was driving me nuts…

    This brings me to a little unproven theory I have. I started thinking a while back: How can Google or other search engines tell apart a real Blog from a Flog (Fake blog)? … The answer was staring right at me: Social media. Folks that have a blog have a ton of stuff on it pointing to their other online identities – Twitter, Facebook, Myspace, their Diggs, etc… Flogs don’t. Of course the last site I made has all these “Social Media” extensions. Good/bad, no clue – it just made sense.

    Holy shit! John Chow posted something useful again! I’m seeing a trend here, with less posts about the stuff he eats. I wonder why he talks about the “Pho” going in and not the “Phire” going out – I digress. He has a nice blog and attitude and looks like a fine guy, I’m glad he is posting something useful again.
    This time he happens to be talking about Clickbank.. Nice – I’m his audience!
