One of the things I find tricky with blogs is remembering to go back and check whether anyone’s followed up on any comments I’ve made.
There’s a system called coComment which is designed to help with this, but for some reason it feels like too much effort – or at least it did when I tried it – so I’ve given up with it.
For WordPress blogs – this blog uses WordPress – you can also subscribe to comments using an RSS reader. But again that can be a bit of a hassle to set up.
So I’ve just installed a plug-in for this blog which means that if you leave a comment you can ask to have all the following comments on that post emailed to you. Details on the plug-in are available on the WordPress website.
I’ve seen this on one or two other blogging platforms. I think this should be available as a standard feature across all of them.
[Update: I’ve now tested this and it works a treat.]
