Blogspotter: Comments Feature Hikes Blog Traffic

HuffPo might boast the most complex selection method, but it isn't the first site to elevate commenters to the blogging bigs. Reader submissions power the politically progressive Daily Kos, for instance. Closer to home, The Spokesman-Review's moderate Huckleberries Online recently began enlisting trusted readers to serve as weekend discussion wranglers. Huckleberries maestro Dave Oliveria regularly pulls insightful and provocative replies into front-page posts as well. Other blogs highlight comments of the day or week in items that spawn even more reactions. (The Comics Curmudgeon honored one comic-strip comment of the week and 15 runners-up in a recent entry that drew more than 80 additional comments.) -- Frank Sennett/Blogspotter.
