Moved my 41400 Comments into Disqus

Disqus Boy, was I freaked out about not wanting to implement a new comment system on my blog. I have over 41,000 comments here. Do you think I want to lose even one precious word you’ve written back to me over the years? No. That’s the short answer. So I have put off moving to a commenting platform for a long time.

I’ll be honest, what got me to convert was that Giannii from Disqus did the conversion for me while I squirmed and winced and looked between splayed fingers, hoping against hope that it would go okay.

And now? It’s over. I’m there. I’m on their commenting platform.

But why? WordPress has a perfectly good commenting system. The answer is two fold: flexibility and searchability. The tools allow users and me to do more with commenting, and they also make it much easier to search the comments and for the comments to be found floating out on other platforms for better discovery.

I’m excited. I’m in. I’m happy with the service and with Giannii’s (and team’s) help.

Worth a look-see.

    Chris, I’m relatively new to WordPress and I don’t understand either of your two points for moving to an independent commenting platform, flexibility or searchability.

    You say “The tools allow
    users and me to do more with commenting.” In what way?

    You also say the tools “make it much
    easier to search the comments and for the comments to be found floating
    out on other platforms for better discovery.”  Again, I don’t understand what you mean.

    I am sure your points are valid, or you would not bothered to have made the switch, but can you clarify them a bit?

    How can we determine, which are the best protein bars in the market? As for any

    bodybuilding supplement product, there is a large variety of protein bars. You will find

    protein bars with whey protein, protein isolate, casein protein, etc… However, in order

    to find out, which one is the best we must compare three factors: a) price b) total protein

    amount c) additional ingredients and d) the taste.

    Get friends to give you a few of their stories – good and bad – about what their accountant has done for them. Of course a small outfit may not suit your needs if you’re looking for a company to take on the tax concerns of a larger enterprise. Similarly, if you’re just looking for someone to deal with your personal finances, then you may find many places unwilling to take you on.
