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!

  1. I was wondering what this was. I was like "Hey, it wasn't like this last time." Also, korena beef tacos sounds amazing!

  2. Yep! I really like it EXCEPT for the fact that I can't reply directly to commenters through email. :( But I think Disqus might email them the reply so I hope that covers it. And you should definitely try the tacos! The ingredient list looks overwhelming, but it's super easy! Just mix up the sauce and pour it over the meat in the crockpot and let it cook all day.
