I added a little WordPress plugin called Subscribe to Comment that allows you to check a little box on the comment form so you can get follow up comments in your email. A reader asked about it, so I decided to implement the plugin. Feel free to try it out (I always enjoy your comments, in general, all of you!).
I found a recommendation for the plugin on this WordPress blog called WebDesignerWall. If you like funky, beautifully designed web pages, it’s worth a peek.
There are a multitude of WordPress plugins, and some seem quite fun. Simple Recent Comments is one I must do soon. Maybe I’ll add it to the bottom, along with a list of archives of posts. I should try out some simple stats package, but those you won’t see. Unless I tell you. Oh, yes, I could tell you…another post idea!
And here’s an experiment with a blockquote that has a different border and background than the one I standardly use. More fun with WordPress.
As an additional experiment, I am going to set this post to be published at 3:15 am EST.

I’d love to try that, I was actually wondering how to do it afer visiting blogs that had the plugin but I have no idea how to add a plugin to a blog. Sigh!
Ilana-Davita, I checked, and I couldn’t find a way you can have email-notification for commenters if you use wordpress.com instead of your own blog on your own webhosting site. You could always send them an email and ask. Maybe they’ll consider making it a standard feature.
The way I do it is I download the plugin, read the directions, then ftp the plugin code up to the plugins folder. Then I go into the admin panel and hit activate. This one was so easy to do.
hmm…i might be the only one but so far i’m still happy with blogger. i am not quite ready to make the switch to wordpress or whatever the cool kids are using…but sometimes i’m jealous. however, now that blogger allows post-scheduling in advance, i’m even more content:-) any really good arguments for switching?
Phyllis, no, if you want free, it seems that Blogger offers a lot. If you want to use WordPress with its full functionality, you would need to 1) pay for your own webhosting and 2) be comfortable with code.
I like to tweak a lot, do some of my own coding, and I already pay for webhosting for my website, so for me, using WordPress is free.
Let me know who the “cool kids” are. I got no clue. Personally, I think you and Ilana-Davita are pretty cool!
I am not sure I could manage with code…
I’ll try and look into the advantages and drawbacks of having my own webhosting site when I have more time.
