Note: This post was relevant when I hosted on Typepad. As of Nov 2009, we moved to WordPress.
There’s been a slight technical upgrade at my blog host, Typepad. You and I both reap the benefits.
There are a lot of great back-end features that make my life as a blogger a lot less hassle. But the commenting feature has changed as well, and it’s rather cool. You now have no reason not to come make comments!
Comments are now threaded. This means you can reply to someone else’s comment. I can’t tell you how fantastic that is! So if Ed says something that Jane wants to respond to directly, she can.
The comment form has changed a bit as well.
What’s different? Well, first off, your comment is amazingly important, so you can write that first. URLs in your comment will be automatically hyperlinked as well. Once you get your thoughts down, then you can enter in all the fun information like your name, email (not displayed), and your own URL. As usual, you’ll still have to enter a CAPTCHA code to post (anti-spam mechanism), but you will get a chance to preview before posting.
Finally, you can optionally sign up for a free Typepad Profile that will show your photo and previous comments as part of your post. It’s pretty cool, albeit not required.
Now, if I could just find a graphic designer willing to donate their mad designing skills to improving the look and feel around here, we’d be set!
