I’m sure you’ve heard about the commentluv premium plugin that combines 8 plugins into one and allows you to choose any post to be displayed on commentluv, even if it isn’t one of your last ten posts.
The good news is that even if you are still using the good old free version of commentluv you can still showcase any post of your choosing!
There are two tricks that I know of which will allow you to do this.
The First Trick
The first trick is one that I’ve read a few times on blogs and blog comments is to go back to the post that you want to showcase and edit it to change the date. You make the date so that it’s you newest post and it will show up first on the commentluv list.
This is especially helpful for the blogs that don’t allow you any choice and only let you show your latest post. But don’t forget to go back and change the date when you are done commenting!
Personally I haven’t even tried that trick because I haven’t wanted to take the time for all that switching around of dates.
The Second Trick
I don’t need to follow that trick because I accidentally discovered another way to showcase my older (ie: not the most recently published ten) posts on commentluv.
When you are leaving your comment instead of just putting your blog’s url (example: http://yourblog.com/) put in a category on your blog. Let’s say that you are responding to a post about marketing, you would put a link to your marketing category (in my case the link is http://growwithstacy.com/category/marketing/) and all of your posts in the category of marketing will show up in the commentluv choices!
Now you have the option of choosing from ten posts that actually relate directly to the post that you are commenting on! You don’t have to go back and edit any dates or times on any of your blog posts.
However, if that is still too much work and you would still rather get the commentluv premium plugin then you have the opportunity to win the plugin from Mavis Nong:
