PlanetOzh has created the Liz Strauss Comment Counter by Ozh WordPress Plugin which honors the popular blog conversation expert, Liz Strauss.
If you want to brag about your blog’s comment count, this is the Plugin to try. The Liz Strauss Comment Counter Plugin adds a chicklet comment counter similar to Feedburner to your blog. You can configure it with a variety of colors and styles. Ozh has included a lot of great features to customize the look to match your blog’s color scheme and styles. This is a great way to show off the number of comments on your blog.
Think about it. Instead of the arbitrary judgment of how many feed subscribers or visitors you have on your blog, you could give valuable feedback to your blog visitors on how social your blog really is. Every time someone leaves a comment, the count increases. Think of the possibilities!
You could have contests that help drive up the comment count. You could ask people to bet on when your comment count will break a significant score like 10,000, 100,000, or maybe even 100. Blogs could compete against each other to raise their comment count. Or it could just sit there and let the world know that you welcome comments. The more the merrier.
So what would you do with your blog’s comment count score?

What About WordPress.com Bloggers? We Want to Count Our Comments!
If you are interested in requesting the Liz Strauss Comment Counter by Ozh WordPress Plugin be among the Widget sidebar options for WordPress.com blogs, let them know. Ask in the WordPress.com Forums and chime in behind those who asked first.
One of the ways a WordPress Plugin or Widget makes it into WordPress.com is by being among the top downloaded and most popular Plugins on the WordPress Plugin Directory. If you have the full version of WordPress, have your say on how you like it, and encourage others to download and install it.
