Thanks to Yvonne Russell at Grow Your Writing Business for introducing me to You Comment, I Reply. If you look back through the posts and comments, you can see that I have always replied to comments. However, I’ve never brought it to readers’ attention. So the new icon in my sidebar lets folks know that I appreciate your comments and will reply. And since I’m part of the DoFollow movement, you’ll get a link for your comment. Now the only reason you have for not commenting is if you find nothing worth commenting on. 🙂
I’ve also added some new comment plug-ins. Brian’s Threaded Comments allows replies to specific comments, so it’s easy to follow conversations. Another plug-ins lets you subscribe to comments so you don’t have to keep checking back to see if replies have been posted.
More plug-ins: Notice that the Archives has been moved to a separate page and is now a detailed listing of posts by date and title, courtesy of the Clean Archives Plug-in. And I changed my permalinks to include the post title, which Mig Lica recommended in her SEO Book of WordPress Blogs. The Permalink Redirect WordPress plug-in ensures that I don’t lose the links on all the old posts that were named differently.
If you’re a blogger, I hope these plug-ins are helpful to you. If you’re a reader, I hope the plug-ins make your reading experience easier and more pleasant.
