Based on your experience, I just switched my email confirmation option off on Subscribe to Comments Reloaded. I’ve never liked having to confirm my subscription to others’ posts’ comments, so I guess . . . And you haven’t had any problems with spam to your subscribers’ inboxes?
Dave, I really like your posts on the current state of blogging or social networking. It’s like you’re doing all the work for me.
As you know, I don’t care for Facebook much. But Google+ sounds like an intriguing mix of blogging and social networking. Google rarely fails at something big, and they fail twice at the same big thing even more rarely. So I bet the lack of traffic won’t last too long.
