Aggregating comments?

on May 19 in Uncategorized posted by

Is there a tool that will allow a user to aggregate his or her comments on blogs across the Web? I’m not a programmer, so I don’t know how to create such a tool.

But, if you want to keep track of TwitterThoughts opinions across the blogosphere, I have aggregated comments in my post column Mind Meld, under the menu item “Social Media Opinions.” You can visit the page regularly or subscribe to the RSS feed to keep up.

  1. Try coComments. I find it useful for pulling all my comments together.

  2. The challenge with aggregating comments is the fact that you’re submitting comments to another site. While some sites may in turn send these comments elsewhere (disqus), there’s no guarantee. Some bloggers feel strongly that sending off "their" comments to another service is giving up some level of control (despite the fact that they didn’t write the comments themselves).

    You mention RSS feeds, and there in some cases you can subscribe to an RSS feed of all comments left on a blog, but obviously that’s related to the specific blog, rather than the commenter.

    I personally use disqus for my tumblelog, since it doesn’t have any integrated means for commenting, but for my wordpress blog, I use "wordpress stuff". That is, the comments you leave on my site are stored with the content on my site.
