I've seen it on a few other sites, like Lost Remote and TV Newser. I wondered if it might be a good fit for WNYT.com and figured I'd test it out here first.
There are four different options for how you can post your comment.
- You can remain unregistered and enter whatever you like for your name and e-mail address (although I'll still be able to see your IP address no matter what).
- You can create an account for yourself on Disqus.com and login with that when you leave your comment. Then you can go back to Disqus.com to track all of your comments on any site using Disqus.
- Use Facebook Connect to tie your activity here to your Facebook profile. That way, whenever you post a comment here, it will also show up on your wall and in your newsfeed along with a link back to the item here. It's essentially just like a posted link on Facebook.
- You can login with your Twitter account. Like with Facebook Connect, this way your comment here will also appear on Twitter as a reply to @ChrisRooney (my Twitter profile) along with a link back to here.
Of course, none of this does any good if I don't post something worth commenting on. I'll try to get better at that. My blogging mojo has been out of whack lately, but I think I'm getting back on track. It's been tough to find the right balance between blogging and my other social networking (not to mention actual work, family and all the rest of life's activities).
So please comment away and let me know what you think!
