How to Install Comment Widget on Blogger

Comment Etiquette #2

The Comment Widget is a neat tool for both the blogger and their visitors. From a blogger's point of view, the widget serves many purposes.
1) The comment widget helps you keep track of the visitors who made comments on your blog,
2) it acts as one of the vehicles for the blogger to run Top Commentator contests,
3) it gives the blog owner a chance to promote and reward the visitors who dropped the most comments on their blog.
4) it provides a link to the commentator's profile and them show-off to your readers.

If you need more reasons as to why you should have a comment widget on your blog, Reach Beyond Limits has listed two additional ones below.

    Step by step guide:
    • Then click on the first gray button: Add Top Commentator Widget to Blogger
