I Follow - manually

I follow

To get round the Blogger automatic nofollow feature in the comments window, I have had to do a manual workaround to express gratitude for my reader's comments, claiming a right to freedom of choice.

You can read my latest comments in the footer of this blog; the links there will take you to the actual post and comment window. Next to this you will find a list of people who made those comments with 'followed' links to their blogs.

My thanks this week go to:
I will shortly run a poll here too to see if the same preferences show up. In the meantime please feel free to contact me if you would like to see me do more posts on a particular aspect of blogging.

Thanks so much for the linky love Sue :-)

Wild that Blogger doesn't work for the do follow plugin. That's a lot of work for you to maintain to give backlinks from commentors, but very admirable :-)

Hi Deborah
It is a nuisance there is no hack for taking nofollow off the Blogger Beta comments page. There is a way round it for the new Blogger I believe though.

I don't get as many comments as you so it is not that much work :-)

Thanks Pearl
I do know the site and use it for research for my beta Blogger blog. I am using the Classic Blogger for this site (the older version) which is quite different. The reason being I have been planning on moving this blog to my own domain and the new features of beta blogger are not supported for that. Anyway it is easier to fiddle with the code using this version and I fiddle a lot:-)
