Since WordPress’s recent update, I have added a couple of new features to my blog. The one that I think will be the most useful is: “Recent Comments.” Useful for those, like yours truly, who like to read blog comments.
Frequently readers leave comments on “old” posts, sometimes asking questions that will probably go unanswered (I mean, who bothers reading old posts? When I visit other people’s blogs, I read only their new posts/reader comments). At any rate, the new feature solves that problem, at least in part, since it lists the five most recent reader comments on old and new posts alike.
This sounds a bit long-winded, now that I have reread it, but you will see what I mean if you just scroll down this page and look on the right-hand side of your screen. You will find “Recent Comments” right above my monthly Calendar, also a new addition that lists my posts day by day.
