It’s now way easier to post a comment on our blog

What are “comments”?

Blog “comments” are a way for you, or any reader, to publicly join in a blog community (anonymously, if you like). You’ll notice that under each title on this page there’s a button that says “comments.” If you click that button, and let the page fully load, it will take you to a box just under the post, entitled “Add New Comment,” in which you can type your thoughts about our post. The box looks like this:

When you finish, your comment will be posted publicly in a long thread of other public comments from our readers. You can even get into a back and forth discussion with other readers, and follow that discussion as it threads back and forth (like an outline).

What should your comment say? Anything. Do you agree, disagree, or have something totally unrelated to say or report – maybe you’ve seen a good article somewhere else that we all should know about, fast-breaking news, etc). Your comments will appear publicly on our site, just beneath our post, along with those of our other visitors. I’ve tweaked the settings so that you don’t need to register any longer, you can just make up a pseudonym (or your real name if you like), enter your email address, and comment away.

Give it a try. Use this post as a test comment, click the comments button and write anything – write ‘test’ if you’re not feeling particularly inspired. This is your chance to test what a blog “comment” is, and to see how easy it really is to be published. Good luck, JOHN
