If you want to brag about your blog’s comment count, this is the Plugin to try. The Liz Strauss Comment Counter Plugin adds a chicklet comment counter similar to Feedburner to your blog. You can configure it with a variety of colors and styles. Ozh has included a lot of great features to customize the look to match your blog’s color scheme and styles. This is a great way to show off the number of comments on your blog.
Thanks to Ozh for honoring the great work Liz Strauss does for the blogging community. If you don’t know Liz, she is the author of Successful and Outstanding Bloggers and founder of the SOB Award which honors unique and original bloggers, author of The Secret to Writing a Successful and Outstanding Blog — The Insider’s Guide to the Conversation That’s Changing How Business Works, and founder of Successful and Outstanding Bloggers Conference (SOBCon), the annual conference which brings together top bloggers with top blogging and business and marketing experts. With more than 70,000 comments on her blog, she’s a leader in the art of the blog conversation.
I think this plugin can help to increase the comments count on our blog. When people see the counter, they are encourage to comment.
