On Purpose

Luv in Hard Times

Actually there isn't a single time where a little Luv doesn't work for me. Love always works.  Even when Southwest Airlines shows me some luv with their birthday cards, it works for me. Do any of you get those personalized, thoughtful gems on your birthday?

So this week, I'm in love with CommentLuv. It is the coolest application. When someone leaves a comment on my blog, as they are typing, CommentLuv searches their feed for the lastest post and displays it with their name, in my comment box. Readers can then click straight over to that author's post. It's a great way to drive more traffic to your blog, and that always works for me.

It used to only work for WordPress blogs, but as of this week there is an application for my favorite host, Typepad, as well as several other hosts.  What I really appreciate is the easy to understand, step by step instruction video on how to install CommentLuv. 

So I ask you, who couldn't use a little love in these hard times? Share the luv by leaving me a comment and then head over to Rocks In My Dryer to share a little more!
