This is a WordPress plugin I added to my blog a while ago. I really like what it does, and I’ve been spreading the word about it as much as I can. Thanks to Pelf for sharing the plugin with me, and to Jeriko for developing it.

What it does is basically it embeds the comments into your blog’s feed. There is quite a bit of a lag time (maybe one of you smart folks could help improve that?), but it’s still better than nothing, in my opinion. And it makes it easier for your readers to keep track of the conversation.

Here’s what my feed looks like in Google Reader, with the plugin:

I personally think it’s really useful, so I wanted to share it. I’ve uploaded it since Jeriko’s original page doesn’t seem to work (at least not for me). You can download it here. All you need to do is to upload it to your plugins folder and activate it.
