As a reader of many blogs, I like to be able to track my comments and find out when others have added to a comment conversation. A year or two ago, the Edublogs guru, Sue Waters, introduced me to coComment and I haven’t look back!
“coComment is a service for managing, powering and researching conversations online. When using coComment, you can keep track of your comments across any site, share them with friends, and get notified when you get a response.”
While coComment has functions to search for comment topics across thousands of sites and has tools to build networks, the most valuable tool for me has been the simple tracking tool.
“CoComment summarizes all of your comments, and the responses, in a single location and notifies you of any updates to any of them.”
To get started with tracking your comments on coComment, simply visit the coComment website and create a free account, then install the extension. Every blog or site you comment on will then use coComment to capture your comments. coComment will automatically start tracking the conversation.
You will be able to see a summary of the sites you’ve commented on when you login to the coComment website or open the coComment sidebar (Shift, control, Q).
I like to use coComment to keep track of the class, student and education blogs I follow and comment on.

It’s excellent to hear that cocomment is helping you track comments that you leave on blogs. Being instantly notified of new comments really enhances the whole conversations that happen!
@Sue – thanks again for the introduction to coComment. As my blogging bluddy Linda Yollis says – comments make blogs come alive, coComment is just another tool that can enhance this process!
I heard about coComment last term but then forgot about it, thanks for the reminder! I will sign up for it today! What a great way to keep track of comments and blogs, much easier than remembering to look back at the blogs you comment on!
@ Kelly – good luck using coComment. I’ve found it really handy and sure you will too!
I signed up for coComment and I love it! (Do I sound like an ad or what? 🙂
It really helps organize your comments and lets you know when someone’s responsded to a post. I used to waste a lot of time checking back with blogs…waiting for a response. This is like an RSS feed for comments. I like that the little extension button shows me when there is a new comment.
I’m sure I saw it on Sue’s post a year or two ago, but sometimes I get overwhelmed with all the new tools and it’s hard to try everything. Thanks for bringing it to my attention!
@ Linda, thanks for your comment. You’re right, sometimes you read about something then need another reminder to use it! I too used to waste a lot of time checking back to see if others had replied to blog comments but now I don’t have to! Yes, maybe we should make up an ad for coComment, haha 🙂
Thank you!! I have often wondered what the best way to do this is and hadn’t stumbled on this solution yet. This will be a big help in tracking conversations.
@ Kelly, wow it’s not often that I would introduce you to something new! Glad I could help – I think you’ll really enjoy coComment considering how many blogs you must follow!
