I knew that I was going to like Disqus a lot before I installed it on my blog, but I don’t think that I realized just how much. My first observation after installing Disqus was that I immediately got about 3 or 4 comments on a few of my posts. One of the posts was several months old.
Prior to installing Disqus I had about 140+ registered users that had left comments on my blog, most using Facebook Connect and a few had registered via WordPress. Well, just by giving my readers the ability to post using authentication from Twitter, Facebook, Disqus, and OpenID has dramatically improved the dialogue I have with my subscribers / readers. I strongly recommend Disqus to anyone looking for an enhanced commenting platform.
