Monitoring comments by email

As you visit blogs leaving comments it can be helpful to know which blogs and posts that you have commented on are still actively recieving comments. This means that you can monitor the ongoing conversation and perhaps revisit to make further comments.

Blogger has a feature which allows you to recieve further comments via email to your gmail account and this makes it very easy to follow comment conversations. You can choose this option when you leave a comment.

On the subject of comments on blogs more generally I notice as I visit blogs that it can be difficult for blogs to attract their first comments both on the site as a whole and to particular pages. If you are visiting other peoples blogs don't forget that most bloggers are delighted when they get comments - thats one of the purposes of blogging after all ! So dont be shy about posting a comment.
