  1. Hi Babanature,

    Honestly speaking, I never knew that one could use Discus on Blogger’s blog till recently when I saw someone using it 🙂

    That just goes to show why I never used it when I was on bloggers 2 years back, when I started blogging. I was using the default commenting system, though when I switched to WordPress, I started using Discus and later went on with CommentLuv, when it came up. However, while transferring the comments, I lost a few and even the Gravatars, so that was not good about it.

    Thanks for sharing. Have a nice weekend 🙂

    • Hello Harleena,

      Sometime back, it is impossible to use the disqus commenting system on blogger blog. but now, it is possible… The blogger blog platform is getting advanced and as i said earlier, more developers are joining the train of blogger to see a better result with the blogger blogspot.

      Losing some of your comment must have been painful but thank God you pass those difficult moments 🙂

      Now, you can easily export or import your comment from a different comment system to diqus without losing your previous comment

      Thanks for stopping by and dropping your beautiful comment as always. do have a wonderful week ahead…

  2. I for instance wouldn’t recommend the use of Disqus but with what Blogger.com commenting system has to offer, I obviously do think the best way to go with anyone on the blogger platform should be Disqus and this is one post which has thrown more light on it with respect to how to go about it.

    Do have a lovely weekend BabaNature!

    • Hello Emmanuel,

      On WordPress, the native commenting system is still the best. But the blogger blog commenting system sucks, so using a better commenting system to enhance your commenting progress is just the right choice.

      Disqus is one of the best commenting system for blogspot users 🙂

      Thanks For stopping by and dropping your comment. Do have a good week ahead..

  3. Hi Babanature,

    I have a couple of Blogger blogs but I never used Disqus on them. Right now I’m using Intense Debate on one and Google+ comments on the other. If I ever change my mind, now I know how to make the switch. Thanks!

    • Hello Ilean,
      Google+ and intense debate are as good as disqus. But again disqus is more social and has more advantage when comparing them 🙂

      When you change your mind, do look back at this post 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by and dropping your wonderful comment. Do have a lovely week ahead…

  4. Hi Babanature,

    No doubt Disqus is now very popular commenting platform and many bloggers are using it. Choosing any commenting platform is blog owner choice and you can’t do much about it. Though you did mention a good tutorial to add disqus on blogger.

      Welcome to my blog 🙂
      If you’re using WordPress, i wouldn’t advice you to change the native comment system. Why? Because the WordPress commenting system is the best as far as easy commenting is concern 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by and dropping your wonderful comment. Do have a blissful week ahead…

  5. I have a WordPress blog and use the WordPress functionality for comments. Not sure what advantages Disqus would provides.
    From the perspective of someone who frequently comments on other blogs I thought WordPress was easier for the commenter.

    • Hell Ken,
      This blog post is focused on bloggers who use the blogger blog/ blogspot platform.

      I do recommend any blogger who uses the WordPress platform to stick with its default comment system.

  9. Hi Babanature,

    Very nice post and very informative. The tips you have mentioned here are very nice. I really liked it.
    Disqus is a popular commenting platform for websites. It works well for blogs. One huge upside for the end users is that they are automatically updated whenever someone replies to a comment, in an unobtrusive way. It’s like a digital hub for comments. I always
    found Disqus ridiculously easy and provided people with a lot of choices of how they want to comment. This is an easy way to install Disqus comment system in Blog.

    Keep sharing posts like this, thanks for sharing.
    Have a nice day!!
    All the best for your future blogs!!
