Gary Vaynerchuk has been my benchmark for the way I do things at Goulet Pens and Ink Nouveau for a little over a year now, and I just got another great idea from him the other day. I noticed that he uses a program called Disqus on his blog. People would comment, and he gave responses to each person that were nested right under theirs, which I thought was just awesome! It makes it much easier to follow the flow of each thought, and to harvest conversations from each comment.
Aside from ‘nesting’, other cool features include the ability to comment by signing in with your already existing profile from Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo, and other social networking sites. You can even attach pictures to your comment, making it much easier to show what pen or ink you’re talking about. You can easily ‘like’ someone’s comment, as well as share it on your favorite platform.
So with Rachel’s help, we’ve installed Disqus here on Ink Nouveau. The point of all of this is to make it easier for you to ask me questions and share your thoughts, and to make it easier for me to keep a conversation going with each of you about all the writing stuff you love. You can already see how it’s working on the post I did the other day on Lamy pens. What do you say? Let’s start talking ;)
