I just wanted to let you know I’ve added two new plugins here. Together, they do something I’ve been wanting to do for ages, but I hadn’t found the right one, and then stopped looking for a while. But then, after waiting, it appears that someone’s made the plugins I’ve been looking for!
- BackType Comment Plugin: This one pulls in comments from other blogs, Twitter, FriendFeed, and is pretty customizable. This gets to the issue of losing the conversational nature of the blog. Even if the conversation moves to Twitter, it can still be tied to the post.
- Subscribe to Comments: This one lets people follow along with comments in the blog. I used to have a plugin that did this type of thing for me on other blogs. I’d get a notification whenever there was an update to a blog that I commented on. That company went out of business, though, so I really appreciate blogs that have a notification option. I’m glad to finally have that here.
Anyway, since these two met two of my needs perfectly, I thought others might be looking for similar solutions. Here they are if you need them!
