my comments section changed (so here's a very short intro to Disqus)
You may (or may not) have noticed that I recently changed the comments section on my blog. I used to use the standard Blogger comment form, but this week I switched and am now using Disqus. It's a small change, but I think it is a good decision.
Good Change: People who don't have a Blogger account can sign in using Twitter or Facebook
Good Change: Many blogs are using Disqus which means many people will have a Disqus account
Good Change: You can make it know if you like or dislike a comment and you don't even need an account to do that! Under each comment you'll see the arrows to move a comment up or down in the conversation.
Bad Change: Some bloggers used to have their email address attached to their profile so if they left a comment I could email them back a response (more on that here). I LOVED this feature. But I don't think that is compatible with Disqus so I haven't been able to email people back directly. They all show up as noreply commenters.
p.s. I have the meat for korean beef tacos in my crockpot this morning and in just a couple hours my house is going to smell amazing!
