There is an ongoing discussion within and around the blogosphere about whether blog comments are dying and or dead. I haven’t touched upon it much but those of you who hang out ’round these parts know I believe comments are a critical part of blogging.
Comments build community and help create blog fodder for future posts.
Dropped by Spin Sucks today during my normal rounds and learned about Livefyre Sidenotes and was intrigued so I figured it was time to share it with you.
Where Can I Find Sidenotes?
The plugin is still in the approval stage but is expected to be released any time. In the interim if you want to see it in action head over to Spin Sucks or click here.
Alternatively you can wait and see what it looks like when it is dropped in here.
I am very curious to see if being able to comment on parts of a post have a significant impact on conversations and comments. My guess is that it will.
What do you think?
