A couple of weeks ago I noticed that many of the blogs I read had a new interesting feature--the ability to reply directly to posted comments. Over the years I've handled responding to comments in different ways. When I started blogging I didn't have any comments. Then as my name got out there they started trickling in. I'd take the time to reply with an additional comment on the post, but eventually decided that responding via email was more personal and started doing that. However, I'm always open to change.
After a little investigating I found out that back in January Blogger made 'threaded comment replies' available. I tried to figure out how to turn the option on, but couldn't get it to work, so I turned to Betsy at My Five Men. She seems to get a good conversation going with her blog post comments, so I asked her how she got the threaded comments set up. She said:
You have to make sure your settings for comments are set to 'full' for blog feed and 'embedded' instead of popup window or full page. Go to Settings/Other for the blog feed change and Settings/Posts and Comments for the embedded part.With her directions it was easy to make the necessary changes. Now, with threaded commenting enabled I guess I've come full circle; I'll start responding to all the nice comments I get on the pages of my blog again.
