Liz Strauss is considered to be an expert in the art of engaging conversations and, for blog, comments (I dig her blog tagline "You're only a stranger once"). One day Lorelle and Liz were chatting about how successful she was on that field, and the idea of a wickedly cool widget that would show comment counts popped out.
It's been an exciting opportunity to "work" with these two fine ladies, and I'm very pleased by the result. The widget I made is pretty cool and flexible, with a lot of options. Think "feedburner badge", except you have everything under control.
The whole purpose of displaying your comment count is really up to you. The obvious usage would be showing off how social a website is, with a humongous five or six figure digit, but I think even for more humble sites with a few thousands, or hundreds, or even dozens, it has its role: it shows you simply care about comments and commenter, which is engaging for visitors and an invitation to join the discussion.
And anyway, it's just yet another fun chicklet :) Get yours!
