There are two websites I became aware of in the last month or so, as I started commenting in blogs all over the internet. The two services have similar names, and even similar products, but take a slightly different approach to solving the same problem. Commenting in blogs can be a random process, and the commenter might just forget where their conversation took place. We’ll take a look at both of these services today:

Interesting features about both: with, you can easily create a Feedburner Flare which will build interactivity into your RSS feed.

Conversation Tracking

This gives RSS readers a quick and easy way to add one-click conversation tracking from their RSS reader. has a FireFox extension which allows tracking automatically in your Firefox browser.

I suggest you check out both of these sites if you’re a blog commenter. The folks at have built up more of a community surrounding their product, and I can say they’re very friendly and quick to listen to feedback. What other site do you know of where you can get a 16×16 pixel headshot made instantly? Exactly, not too many, so there’s something special about these Swiss Web 2.0′ers. With services like these springing up every day on the internet, it’s no wonder our lives are getting easier all the time.

I’d love to hear what you think of the two services.

    2. That is neat. I do like to leave random comments sometimes, and I would forget where all the time. I also installed the co.mments code on my site to see how it works (not that I get any comments!).

      I will track this post and see how I like it.

    3. Glad you liked it Greg,

      I think you’ll get a few comments soon :) Give it a test and let me know how you like it. I’m not sure how many people are using the service, but I bet it’s catching on.

      BTW, your vegetable oil car sounds very interesting to me.

    4. Hey, it works!

      I am having a bit of trouble with the “one click” tracking… I have surfed around today and left some random comments, but the one click thing does not seem work for me.

      So, I have been pasting the URL into the co.mments page… It works, but not as slick as I had hoped.

      Glad you like the veggie car. I like it too!

    5. Greg,

      Are you using Firefox for your browser? I assume you are. No, pasting it is not as slick. I just click and the extension loads on the screen.

      The extension seems to be working for me as well (they released a new version today that fixes some bugs. I’m testing that one more right now.
