We could try out Disqus, it would just amend the comments, and I believe it works with most themes. It takes some time to convert all past the comments but it works a helluva lot better than standard WP commenting. Lets you login with social media too.

A very apt #TBT: the very first Zorphbert & Fred #comic, circa 2006.
It ends tomorrow, technically in 30 minutes. 9 years, 800 comics, 4 books, and kickstarted plushies. What a wild ride.
Please be apart of the grand finale:

+JS Rowe - not sports related, I don't think... at least not the bulk of it. ;0) Thanks!!!!
+Ronald Shepherd -- I have debated a fill color anthology like you suggested.. would have to kickstart that for sure. Maybe down the line. Finishing up that first Kickstarter TODAY, I don't even want to THINK about another yet! ROFL

Less than $250 from our STRETCH GOAL, and I am SO confident we can get there in the last 2 days, I already mocked up the Adoption certificate plushie backers will receive WHEN we hit $4K!!

Gina & I had a quite successful Kickstarter campaign, and I owe a LOT of that to my "creative consultant" +Robin Childs  who managed the financial aspects of our campaign. She also helped change my outlook on Kickstarter--- it isn't just a storefront-- it's a way to become APART of the creative process, and backers pay more to do just that. I would have seriously under-charged without her, giving in to negative and misconstrued thoughts like "No one would pay THAT much for a silly plushie in a retail store".
Kickstarter is like Patreon & gofundme combined-- a way to support creative minds, see the behind-the-scenes stuff, AND receive some awesome unique products too! Thanks again to Robin, and all our awesome backers!

+Dawn Griffin  is a seasoned creator with over 20 years of experience making adorable and hilarious comic strips. However, crowd-funding was new to her and she wasn’t sure how to approach it, what to charge, or if her idea to make plush toys of her characters would even work. As a team, we changed how she viewed her project and made sure the amount she was raising covered everything she’d need to succeed. Her campaign exceeded the funding goal by 143 percent by the time it closed! Read more here: http://www.mokopress.com/an-interview-with-dawn-griffin/

I was happy to be part of such a fun project.  Most of the credit goes to your amazing readers, who came together to celebrate nine years of great work.  You all did it TOGETHER!!  And that's what makes a project like this so fun and meaningful.  I'm grateful I got to be a small part of what made it a success!
