    Would it be possible to give bloggers the option to allow readers to comment on our articles from the main page of our blog instead of having to click through to the article? Maybe a small comment box at the end of each article with an option to comment using a Facebook account.

    If readers want to engage in conversation with other commentors, they would still have the option to click into the article to read other comments, but if they just want to leave a quick response, this might be a nice option for readers.

    It should be minimalist and simple. It shouldn’t be something that would detract from the appearance of the blog.

    The blog I need help with is hundredgoals.com.

    The way the comments function is coded into the core of WordPress. The main page for posts showcases posts and comments are collaspsed on that page. By clicking the post title or the comments link the posts open on their own page where all comments display below them. Your option is to use P2, a twitter-like theme http://theme.wordpress.com/themes/p2/

    It might be an easy thing for the engineers to code, and if bloggers want the option to use this feature, I think it’d be nice for readers and could increase comments/feedback. The easier it is for people the engage, the more it will happen. It might seem ridiculous that one or two clicks would prevent comments, but I’ve decided not to comment because it’s too much “work” on some blogs. Easier is better.
