Track your conversations

In order to keep conversations flowing, you have to stay aware of each discussion in progress.
Unfortunately, we are still in the early days of blogging, and many blogs do not include notification technology to let you know where there has been a new post.
And even if a blogger receives notification that you have commented on his/her blog, does not mean that you will receive notification when that blogger replies to your comment.
If comment email subscription is available, it is wise to subscribe.
You may also choose to use tools such as del.
icio.
us or Cocomment for tracking comments online and subsequent follow up.
But, ultimately, you may have to monitor for comments manually to make sure you keep the conversations alive
