Frustrated because you like to know about new comments on other bloggers’ posts , especially if you’ve left a comment, but find it time consuming going back to the post to check for new comment?
Well you don’t need to return to where you wrote the comments because you can get them brought to you using a comment tracking tool. Part of the The 31 Day Comment Challenge involves using comment tracking tools. Since it’s suggested participants use coComment because of it’s community building features let’s check out tips for getting started with coComment.
- Create an account with coComment.
- Install simple extension capture tool.
- Join the Comment Challenge Group if you are doing The 31 Day Comment Challenge.
- The coComment extension automatically sends comments you write to your coComment account (plus you can tag your comments).
Checking For New Comments
There are several few options for viewing new comments:
1. Login into Your coComment account
While reading the new comments remember to share your comments with your groups.
2. Subscribing to the RSS feed from your coComment account
This means all new comments are fed into your feed reader (e.g. Google Reader, bloglines) and you can check them while reading your blog subscriptions.
3. Using the coComment sidebar
You can access the coComment Sidebar on any web page using the shortcut keys Shift+Ctrl+Q (these keys can also be used for turning off).
Watch this video to see how to use the coComment sidebar.
Hopefully this has helped get you started using coComment. While we encourage all Comment Challenge participants to use coComment because of it’s community features — it’s not a requirement of the challenge that you do.
Also don’t forget to document your learning while completing the Comment Challenge — as Silva says
If you don’t have a blog (yet), take a paper and a pencil and jot down bullets. Remember this challenge is mainly about your own personal learning. The community effect is, of course, an added bonus
