Eureka! Eureka!!

Eureka! Eureka!! I said, on seeing Sujatha’s mail 4 days ago!!

And let me tell you that this Eureka moment was as profound as Archimedes would have felt when he stepped into a bath and noticed that the water level rose and he suddenly understood that the volume of water displaced must be equal to the volume of the part of his body he had submerged!!

Of course, I didn’t discover something as scientific as Archimedes. But what I discovered was something that I had been looking for a long long time.

I have blogged about it and have even mailed a few Tech Bloggers about it and whined about it to self, innumerable times. Alas, no luck in getting a solution to my issue. And, that goes on to prove that there is a suitable time for everything to happen!

Well, to cut the story short, I was pretty bugged with the Blogger Comment Format, which is not at all interactive like the WordPress one! And going up and down the page to respond to every comment is something which irks me to no end. And yes, I am pig-headed enough as shifting to WordPress, or installing Disqus etc, didn’t appeal me!

So a few days ago, when I was on Sujatha’s blog and while commenting saw that her response was just below the comment in each and every comment and I could see that there was a “Reply” option below each comment too. I checked her blog URL and voila!, it was a

I checked again and immediately wrote her a mail and asked about this comment format on her blog.

She was so quick in her response that within a few minutes, she shared the mystery behind this interactive comment format on Blogger!

And I didn’t waste any time in following the steps she mentioned and installed this interactive comment format, which I was sooooooo looking forward to having it on my blog.

So, in case you have a Blogger as your blogging platform and want to install this new interactive comment format, all you have to do is…

  • In Blogger, switch to new blogger interface.
  • Go to Settings – then Posts & Comments – Select Embedded Comments.

And you will experience the “Aha Moment”!!

Thank you Sujatha!
