Adding Comment Section To My Blog


Inspired by this post, I also wanted to add a comment section to my blog. But the first hurdle was how to get it working and which service to use. Instead of banging my head against the wall, I looked up at Hugo's documentation on comments. Over there, I found Utterances, an open-source, GitHub comments widget built on GitHub Issues.

Utterances specify how to set up the comment section in a very straightforward manner. But there was a problem once I did the initial set up and then went back to my blog to notice that the widget was not appearing. To fix this problem, I went to their GitHub issues and found someone having the same issue. After the following solution that was listed over there, the comment section widget started to appear.

There you go, my short exploration journey of adding a comment section on this blog. Let me know what do you think in the comment section!
