I comment on a number of blogs and I'm wondering if there is any utility or software out there that allows you to manage things like this?

For example, many times I will stumble upon a blog and leave a comment on a post. Ideally I'd like to know if the author responds so I can go in and continue the discussion.

I find that over the course of a day I might do this like 5 times and if I don't regularly follow the sites I'm commenting on that means I'd be bookmarking 5 links a day, and checking them day after day for updates.

Note... this is NOT for spamming so please don't hose me down with blog spamming software. thank you.

There is (or was) an identical question to this here somewhere, but I can’t find it.

In the meantime, many blogs support multiple forms of user-logins for comments including the third-party service Disqus. You can sign up with them, then sign into a given blog (that includes it as an option), and post your comment, then receive a notification when someone replies. That way you don’t have to sign up specifically for individual blogs.

As a side note, my personal solution is what you mentioned: to simply drag a link to that page to a folder on my system and once in a while when I have nothing to do, go through some and check if I got a response. Granted, it’s not efficient, but it gives me something to kill a few minutes of “useless time” here or there once in a while without resorting to Solitaire. (But then, I don’t usually care about responses, and on the occasion that I do, I put that link in a subfolder.)

  • many blogs provide a separate feed for comments of any post
  • coComment appears to be able to track comments on any blog
  • some sites use comment systems IntenseDebate or Disqus, which can provide notifications
