How many times have you left a comment on someone’s blog because you really wanted to engage in a conversation?
I’ve done this plenty. But to keep in the conversation, I’ve had to do one of three things: Either I grab a comment rss feed – but those are rare; bookmark the page – easy to forget about; or send a link to myself by email – not efficient.
So engaging in conversations in comments has been quite a pain in the rear – until now.
A few weeks ago I got tired of trying to track the comments I had left on other blogs myself. So I poked around the web and found a few services that would help me track comments. I ended up choosing coComment (though I was really close to choosing co.mments).
Since choosing coComment, my blogging life has changed considerably. I now can comment on any number of blogs and then easily track the conversations around my comments in one, easy-to-use place. I select which comment threads I want to track – coComment does the rest. And I can stop tracking any comment at any time.
Of course, there are other features as well. But I’ll let The Blog Herald, TechCrunch, Solution Watch, Jason Powell, or Business Blogwire tell you more. As I said, co.mments is a pretty nice solution as well. You can read Michael’s review at TechCrunch.
CoComment really has changed the way I blog. Now I want to get into conversations in other blogger’s comments because I know I can easily track how the conversation goes.
How have you been tracking your comments? Do you even bother? Why/why not? As my three year-old daughter says to me, “tell me all about it.”
