I don't have or want comments directly on my blog, but I'm experimenting with having a fediverse "thread" for each blog post.
(Don't actually expect any responses, but we'll see.)
@liw Maybe you should consider using the embed url to have embedding of the toot within your blog. Will make it much easier for us to interact.
@stardenver I don't particularly fancy embedding content from foreign servers on my web pages.
@liw I remember bkhun doing that back in the status.net days, seemed OK, but then, you know, identi.ca died and now his post comment thread history is gone. :/
@Greg bkhuhn doing that is my inspiration for doing it on Mastodon. I admit the long-term archival problem is real, but I'm not sure I care enough to solve it at this time.
@lxoliva This is true, but it's not a problem I want spend my own effort in solving. My choices are:
a) moderate a discussion board (comments directly on blog), which I reject
b) have no comments
c) direct people to comment on the fediverse
I'm going to see how c) goes. If it doesn't, I'll go back to b).
@liw more than once I’ve wanted to comment so odds are I’ll use a fediverse thread at least
@liw I tried this with identi.ca a few years back just by cross-posting
Please at least toot about your blog posts :)
Indie Web has some tools for archiving threads from 3rd party sites back on your own site, but I haven't played with any of that for a few years
