Comment Replies

So I just found the coolest thing - okay, maybe it's just me who thinks it's cool.  But I'm so excited about it I have to share!!

Have any of you with a blog (or have commented on a blog) wanted to reply to someone's comment, but haven't figured out a good way to do so? 

I was reading my friend Lucy's blog.  She has the option to "reply to comment" on her blog.  I asked her how she got it there - but was too impatient to wait for her to answer (our days aren't the same since she lives in China).

I googled how to add this function to my comments and came up with a website.  At Spice Up Your Blog, they will walk you through the process to adding this function to your blog. 

I don't know that using this function actually notifies the original commenter of a follow-up comment (unless they've asked to be notified of follow-up comments), but at least when they come back to read, or when someone else is reading the comments, you can see the replies. 

I love reading comments that my readers leave.  And I love leaving comments for others on their blogs.  What can I say?  Now I'm super-duper excited!  :) 

And hooray that tomorrow is Friday!  I'm home today because I'm not feeling well, but I'm hoping that tomorrow will be a good day and that I can get a lot done!


  1. Oh, that's awesome! I think I may have to plug that in to mine! I'm a stickler about organization, so this only adds to my need for functionality!

    You're welcome! I'm glad to know this has helped at least 1 person! :)

  3. Cool Rae Lynne! I just added reply buttons now too!

    It'll be the new fangled fad sweeping the blog nation (although I think I'm probably a little behind..)

  5. I was coming to show you, but you found out already! LOL!
