    Due to a change in how readers consume content and how they discuss it afterward (and, more specifically, where they discuss it), many bloggers have decided to switch off blog comments altogether. For me, this is a lost opportunity for these bloggers, as the often rich exchanges of thoughts and ideas help take a blog post to a much higher level than it was originally. So why isn’t blog commenting as simple? While choice is great, the truth is we don''t need so many different blog comment solutions. Which is great news if you have a self-hosted WordPress blog.
