Wordpress Pet Peeve

One feature that I love about blogger is that when I leave a comment on a blog entry, I can check the "e-mail follow-up comments" box and forget about it, and then when someone else comes along and adds thier own comment, I will get an e-mail message.  This is great for the times when I make a comment and want to know if anybody else responded to my comment.  I bloviate all over the blogosphere and can never keep track of what nonsense I'm spouting on who's blog, so this feature is really nice.

Wordpress seems to be a great blog engine except for the lack of this feature.  There are several blogs I subscribe to that use Wordpress and I either have to keep a tab open with the original post and check it from time to time or bookmark it and try to remember to come back to it.  I suppose there are worse evils in the world, but it is still an annoyance, especially when I know that the technology is out there to allow me to know of responses without any effort on my or the blog admin's part.

So to all you Wordpressers out there: defend yourself.  Is this feature not available, or are you just not availing yourself of it?

This I-just-got-done-with-a-late-night-baby-feeding-and-I'm-tired-and-frustrated-and-will-probably-think-this-looks-foolish-in-the-morning rant brought to you by Walmart brand baby formula:  It's Enfamil, really.  No, really - compare the two and you will understand. 1/3 the cost; same product.

I don't think I realized they didn't have that option.

Hrm.

Oh Braden, almost forgot... We used Walmart formula exclusively with my second born... Had I known it was the same stuff the first time I would have a couple thousand extra in my bank account.

Word on the formula. I used Target brand with my son. SO much cheaper. I could buy 5 cans for the same amount as 2 cans of Enfamil.

They have that feature but it's probably since I have a wordpress blog,you can always check for new entries by using the feed and mousing over the feed name to see if there are any new entries.
