How to add a comment box in my blog? This is my blog: www.sillydrunkfish.blogspot.com. I would love to have a comment box that open for public to comment about my blogs, but i don’t have one.
If you haven’t logged in to your Blogger (aka blogspot.com) weblog in the last few months, you might be surprised just how many things you can set and change on your weblog. Let me show you how to enable comments, but while you’re doing that, do poke around and notice all the other ways you can customize your weblog.
First off, when you log in to the main Blogspot admin interface, you’ll see something like this:
Click on “Settings” and you’ll see quite a few tabs:
We want “Comments”, logically enough. Click on it.
You can see the settings I have: emulate these on your own blog and you’ll have comments enabled on your entries too. Note that you also have the ability just a bit further down on that page to set your comments to pop up in their own window too, a nice feature that many people on blogger.com / blogspot.com enable.
More importantly, pay attention to “Enable comment moderation”. If you find that you’re getting too much comment spam or even just stupid comments, you might want to enable this. I did!
In any case, you’ll have comments enabled on your blog and hopefully be able to engage in a discussion with your readership.
