It’s all about the love, the CommentLuv
If you have ever posted a comment on either one of my blogs, you may have noticed a little check box and icon under the submit or post comment button that says “CommentLuv”.
What is CommentLuv and why do I have it installed?
CommentLuv is a WordPress plugin that gives a blog more functionality. There are many WordPress plugins which allow you to do pretty much anything from optimizing your blog to modifying how your pictures are displayed. Do a search for WordPress plugins and you will see what I mean!
The reason why CommentLuv was created was to grow the blogging community and to encourage interaction between bloggers.
How does CommentLuv work?
When you have CommentLuv enabled on a blog, the check box and CommentLuv icon is activated on every blog post. When a visitor leaves a comment on one of my blog posts, the plugin automatically goes out and searches their blog for the latest post. If it finds one, it automatically adds a titled link at the end of the comment which links back to their post and looks like this:
See at the end of the comment it says “Roland Leveille recently posted….Save Money By Changing Habits”
The sentence that is in blue is the link to his blog, the last post he had made when he posted this comment. When someone else see’s it, if it peeks their interest they’ll click on it and so they can see what it’s about. It’s a win-win situation for both the blogger and the reader.
I know many people might not like the idea their readers being able to go to other’s sites…You just have to be sure to keep posting things that will keep them coming back for more!
Do you have a blog? If so feel free to leave a comment and give it a try.
If you have a WordPress blog, I highly recommend installing CommentLuv.
