I miss the Backtype (bought by Twitter) Connect profiles that worked so nicely with the My Comments Elsewhere plug-in. It was a great way to show your audience exactly what blogs you were not only reading, but upon which you were taking the time to comment.
One of the things I do like about Disqus and Livefyre comment systems, they save my comments.
Suggestion: I wish they were searchable, more linkable. Wish there was an easier way to import those comments, reblog those without having to maybe clip the screen via something like Skitch (still learning) or just pasting, linking.
What did I say again?
Anyone commented on Klout lately? See what I mean, you either have to copy & paste what you said elsewhere or start all over, and if you’re like me, starts to feel like you’re repeating yourself.
Discussions evolve, conversations move forward. As we read, share and comment, our thoughts develop and circle back on our own blogs. Some kind of feature that would allow me to find what I’ve said, make it easier to bring those points into my own WordPress blog would be dreamy. Here’s hope the plugin developers are listening.
Tools for the trade
Yes we’re all talking to ourselves, probably need to spend less time discussing social media and more time actually marketing, being social, venturing out of the echo chamber. I’m learning to tools like Evernote, Skitch – and on the lookout for what’ll make be a better, badder, more bionic blogger.
For bloggers who spend a lot of time engaging and commenting, do you know where your comments are? Do you care?
