comments tracking

How do you keep track of conversations you have in comments? I don’ t mean comments on your own blog – for me thats easy I don’t get many and even with a lot its not difficult – they are all in one place!

What I am talking about is comments on other people’s blogs. I often forget I commented somewhere, and even if the blog in question offers the ability to subscribe to their comment feed, often this is overkill as I only want to see it for a short period of time and it gets lost amongst all my other rss subs. A few blogs offer the ability to email comments that you subscribe to; it works well – though unsubscribing needs to be easy! The majority don’t so my solution currently? I have an IE folder called comments where I subscribe to posts I have commented in and try and keep track – it means I am slow responding but it works 100% of the time with all blogs.

There must be a better solution?!

  1. Yes, I agree this is a massive problem, especially if blogs are mechanisms for conversations.

    I think there are a number of people working on this – it’s definitely the next big problem to be solved.

    Having a comments RSS feed, like your blog does (as do all wordpress blogs) certainly helps.
