CommentLuv is now installed on this blog!

I have been blogging for almost a year now and although I’ve enjoyed every minute of it, everyday is still a learning experience. I thought then that it’s enough for you to write posts and leave it at that not minding if somebody will actually read my thoughts.

Well, that has changed after months of blogging. I became conscious of my blog’s traffic and its Pagerank. I even bought a custom domain for this blog in the hope that it will ultimately make a big difference in terms of traffic and opportunities.

It’s been a while when I noticed that I’m not getting enough comments in my blog posts, it was only a few days ago when on impulse I decided to do something about it. A blog is supposed to be interactive; it is a form of conversation. And what better way is there to promote conversations than with the readers’ feedbacks and comments?

I then realized that my blog’s comment system is not making it easier for readers to leave a comment. Even fellow bloggers are not getting any value if they will make their presence felt in any of my posts.

It’s a good thing that I stumbled upon a tool that will make commenting easier and it will even reward fellow bloggers. CommentLuv is the name of the tool and it was initially available in Wordpress blogs but now can also work with Blogger blogs. It enables you to reward your fellow blogger readers by leaving a link to their last post whenever they leave a comment thus encouraging more comments on more posts.
It took me a good fifteen minutes to make it work on this blog but it’s all worth it. If you want to use this tool, you can visit the CommentLuv web page and simply follow the step by step procedure.

There’s even a live tutorial on how to install CommentLuv on blogger. Click on this link to watch the video.

But with this CommentLuv installed and working properly, my problem is the link text color of the recent blog post is unnoticeable in the white background unless you put the mouse pointer over the link.

For fellow CommentLuv users, is there a work around to change the text color? I will appreciate your help on this.

I too have been using it for a while. It also encourages people 0 place a feed on their blog if they notice their last post never showed.
