I was trying to get caught up on my commenting today and noticed that I can’t visit a lot of you because you aren’t registered with Disqus and therefore your blog link isn’t showing up when you comment.

I really want to visit you, so if you refuse to register with Disqus (even though it is free and it will totally make your blogging life so much simpler) could you please leave a link to your blog or most recent post for me so I can visit your site? I would really appreciate it. If you choose to leave a link I might need to moderate however that shouldn’t be an issue as long as you don’t have ‘penis’ or ‘Viagra’ in your URL.

    One of the things I'm loving on wp is having everyone's blog url show up in my e-mails when i get their comments. It makes returning visits so much quicker and easier.

    • Reply redheadranting May 18, 2010 at 1:14 am

      Ha! You didn't get spammed!

      It makes it so much easier and I can respond in an email. And I can easily
      visit their site.

    In the interest of (Viagra) making your (penis) life simpler, here is my (porn site) URL:

    You know, sometimes I amaze myself with my considerate nature.

    • Reply redheadranting May 18, 2010 at 2:05 am

      The only reason you are getting through is because you have left like a
      bazillion and one comments here before. I'm pretty sure you are
      grandfathered in no matter what kind of smut you talk about.

      • Reply Margaret (nannygoats) May 18, 2010 at 3:39 am

        Wait, is that right? Can I say penis? Cuz I don't think I've left a bazillion comments here yet. How about flookigraggin? Can I say that? I'm not sure if it's suitable for children or anything, I mean I wouldn't say it at the elementary schoolyard, but you never know these days, do you?

        • Reply redheadranting May 18, 2010 at 4:13 am

          Geez, my kid reads this blog, did you have to go and get all flookigraggin on me? I'll have you know we don't talk that way over here. We have morals and standards and integrity and all that shit.

          Thanks for writing the tutorial about hitching up your blog to Disqus so it shows when you comment. I had no idea I hadn't done that till I read your post.

  • Reply comedyplus May 18, 2010 at 1:59 am

    I'm glad I registered. Just saying. What Tracie said too.

    Have a terrific day. Hugs 🙂

    As long as I put my url in the box, I shouldn't have to join Dsqus for you to be able to click my name and get to my blog.

    • Reply redheadranting May 18, 2010 at 2:20 am

      That is correct and I can see your URL but some people aren't doing that I
      guess. Of course all the people who leave comments without filling in that
      little box won't come back because they will think I have dissed them by not
      visiting so this is probably pointless.

  • Reply joannmannix May 18, 2010 at 2:32 am

    I, for one, can tell you it's so easy once you've registered, to just come back here every time with your information already just waiting for you to post because I am lazy and to have to make my fingers do even the most minimal of extra typing is just too much work. So, I love the disqus.

    • Reply redheadranting May 18, 2010 at 2:40 am

      But your link ISN'T showing up. And this scares me because you are a blond.

  • Reply MsDarkstar May 18, 2010 at 2:34 am

    So, I guess mymassivelyhugerection at viagraisthebomb dot com should perhaps not be my domain name if I want to leave you comments? *grin

  • Reply Pricilla May 18, 2010 at 2:55 am

    Hopefully people won't get frustrated and then unfrustrated.

    • Reply redheadranting May 18, 2010 at 3:10 am

      I hope you aren't frustrated anymore. I can see your link and even if I
      can't, I can still find you.

  • Reply Gwenny May 18, 2010 at 3:26 am

    Just registered on Disqus and started a new blog to post my writings on. So far it looks very useful. Thanks for the bit of advice on it and love your writings hun.

  • Reply mrsblogalot May 18, 2010 at 11:18 am

    I think I'm Disqused…just checking

    • Reply redheadranting May 18, 2010 at 12:08 pm

      Wow, you really take your wine seriously! I can't believe that one made it through. I guess it's just like movies and TV anything about sex is outlawed but violence is okay.

  • Reply mrsblogalot May 18, 2010 at 11:19 am

    OMG it really made a link of that nonsense!!

  • Reply BeingMeAllie May 18, 2010 at 12:20 pm

    Are you really going to make me register. I've been meaning too since a lot of people are using it. I'm lazy.

    • Reply redheadranting May 18, 2010 at 12:21 pm

      It would really help me to visit your site, well not so much you because you
      are in the Tribal Blogs toolbar and that is really easy but for people who
      aren't I really need their blog link so I can visit them.

  • Reply babs (beetle) May 18, 2010 at 1:15 pm

    I have the same problem. It takes so little time to sign up. I wish they would. In fact I wish Everybody used Disqus 😉

    • Reply redheadranting May 18, 2010 at 1:22 pm

      More and more people are using Disqus so it makes sense that everyone sign

  • Reply themother May 18, 2010 at 1:32 pm

    Actually, I find it annoying. I get to a site, start typing, and then Discus throws up a box–Hey, the Mother, is that you? Then I lose my train of thought.

    • Reply redheadranting May 18, 2010 at 1:34 pm

      If you were registered it wouldn't do that. It wouldn't do anything but
      populate all the little things for you automatically.

      • Reply themother May 18, 2010 at 1:43 pm

        I am registered. It's just that it doesn't always remember me when I get to a site, and then it has to log me in.

        • Reply redheadranting May 18, 2010 at 1:49 pm

          Huh. It's never been an issue for me but maybe that's because I use it for
          my comments?

  • Reply mama-face May 18, 2010 at 1:59 pm

    Never heard of disqus…but I'm a complete dunce when it comes to real blogging…maybe I should take a class?

    Off I go to check it out. 🙂

  • Reply JunkDrawer May 18, 2010 at 4:10 pm

    OK, so I just realized I didn't have my URL in my profile over at Disqus!!! Because I saw my picture and “JunkDrawer” name as a link above the empty comment box, I assumed it meant my blog link was included. NOT!

    Why didn't you tell me! I feel like I've been walking around with a booger hanging out of my nose and nobody said anything!

    Thanks a lot.

    • Reply redheadranting May 18, 2010 at 4:47 pm

      I'm pretty sure this will be the best comment of the week! Sorry, I didn't
      see it and I know where you are so it didn't matter to me.

  • Reply lindamedrano May 18, 2010 at 4:26 pm

    Uhm, Jen, can I have a “vagina” in my URL? I'm just wondering…

  • Reply Sam Liu May 18, 2010 at 6:13 pm

    I registered for Disqus after meeting many bloggers who used it, I can see why, it really is an excellent commenting system. I echo your advice, if you haven't registered – do. It makes life that little bit easier for the commenter and the blogger 🙂

  • Reply howmuchlongertillfriday May 18, 2010 at 7:41 pm

    I hated Disqus when I first started using it, but now…LOVE IT!

  • Reply Jayne May 20, 2010 at 9:47 pm

    Even people who do have Disqus need to check their settings and make sure they have their blog connected to it. Margaret at Nanny Goats wrote a really great tutorial on that a couple of weeks ago.

  • Reply megscole64 May 21, 2010 at 2:51 pm

    I just wish it would keep me logged in so I didn't have to log back in every single day. *sigh* Hope my settings are correct.

    • Reply redheadranting May 21, 2010 at 6:37 pm

      I can see all your stuff, at least the stuff you should be showing. Your avatar and your website. Nothing embarrassing, just the right stuff.

  • Reply Heathersprout May 21, 2010 at 2:53 pm

    Ok. I registered.

      Thank you!

    • Reply redheadranting May 21, 2010 at 6:36 pm

      Except I can't see it. Did you register after you left this comment? Or did you lie? 😉

      • Reply Heathersprout May 23, 2010 at 3:50 am

        I don't lie. I can never remember what I said.
        I registered.

    I've been using Disqus for months now and have been very happy with it. I think it helps keep the spam comments out. Love the features of it.
    But I must say if I were to post what you just did I would not get the great response you got.
    When the redhead speaks her followers listen.
    Thanks for getting more people on Disqus maybe some will drop by my place.
