One Little Word Wednesday: Thread

I had been hemming and hawing over today’s post. Thread. I almost started writing a post about how I didn’t know what to write about. I avoided writing my post by writing some comments on other blogs. I then returned to my Tuesday post on Web 2.0 Tools and started replying to commenters. Then it came to me. Threaded comments! Blogger recently implemented a threaded commenting system. Personally, I’m thrilled. Ever since I started my blog, I’ve considered adding Discus or a Reply button. I even considered switching to Wordpress because I liked their commenting system better than Blogger’s. But I didn’t. I actually didn’t even know that Blogger had rolled out the system until I read someone else’s blog. I assumed that bloggers using Blogger would be as pleased as I was. Not true. I was very surprised to read how many people hated the new system and wanted Blogger to switch back, or at least give them the option of disabling the system on their own blog. When I read the comments in Blogger Buzz, I could see why some people would be annoyed, even upset by these changes. For me, I’m looking forward to using the system to see if it promotes more conversations.

  1. I somehow missed that Blogger had threaded comments now, so I was thrilled when I saw your comment about it on the SOLS from this week. I quickly did a Google search to find out how to set them up and realized that on all but one of my blogs it was already set up and I just somehow hadn't noticed yet.


Thanks for reading my post. Please leave a comment.
