Because of this new layout, I've had to sacrifice any good looking commenting and following functions.
However, if you wish to follow this blog, simply go to your dashboard, to the box which alerts you of the blogs you're following, and towards the bottom there are "add" and "manage" buttons. Click add, and then just put the URL right in.
Anyway, to address the commenting issue - I've attempted to implement a new kind of commenting system. I've manually coded in a comment box, however, it will always be to the same post. The comment form doesn't specify which post, so it really doesn't affect user commenting at all. This basically creates a system in which people can comment any single post, but because all previous comments for any post will appear, it almost doubles as a kind of enitre blog forum. This would allow for more things like @replies, opinion sharing, comment feuds etc.
I've provided example comments, so feel free to read over my older posts and comment them too. Make them interesting and fight each other and stuff. Have fun :)
