I’ll be honest. It takes something pretty darn awesome to get me to spend money on a plugin. I’m not against paid plugins, but there are just so many good free ones that I don’t usually find one I want to spend money on. In fact, I can count on one hand how many I’ve purchased personally (Premise and Scribe).
It was love at first site with CommentLuv free. The first time I commented on a blog that had it, I fell head over heels. What an awesome way to thank me for commenting–by linking back to my last blog post and featuring it with my comment. *swoon* That’s a blogger’s dream! All the effort we put into writing the perfect headline and writing thoughtful comments in rewarded.
So not only did I buy CommentLuv Premium as soon as it was released, but I was anxiously waiting. I couldn’t wait to grab it!

I’m still tinkering with some of the settings and deciding how I want to use it but here are some of the super cool features:
- It combines multiple plugins into one so I was able to delete several other plugins I was running. Fewer plugins mean my blog runs faster and it’s easier to keep things up to date. I no longer need separate anti-spam, TwitterLink ID, top commenters or some other plugins.
- It gives the option to incentivize commenters — do follow links after X number of comments, or an option to choose from 10 recent posts after they share a post on Twitter, Facebook, or G+. (This one I haven’t decided what to do with but it’s cool to know I can play with that and see what happens.)
- It unlocks cool features for me on other blogs I comment on that are running CommentLuv.
CommentLuv is offering a special sale since they’ve just launched the plugin and it’s $40 until October 4th, 2011 only.

Oh, and here are two very cool lists of blogs that have CommentLuv enabled that you can comment on and get links back to your blog:
And I’ll be back later today with a post that isn’t promoting or selling anything. So forgive me for this commercial, and stick around.
