There has been recently several discussions about whether comments are any useful on blogs I think it is important to find better ways to connect blogs to social networks. In my opinion the most suitable social network for this is Google+, because there is space for larger discussion, without Twitter’s character limit.

So, for my small blog I’ve decided to implement the Google+ commenting system, which Google originally implemented just for Blogger but that works on any website.

See it in action below.

The plugin is available in the googleplus_comments branch in:
