        Review ofDisqusDisqus

        Have been using Disqus for a long time now, and have always been satisfied. Occasionally it's been a little slow to load, but I think it's gotten better over time. The UI has improved over time, too. Very easy to integrate into my Ghost blog, and complements it well in terms of styling. Very happy with it.

        Disqus is a wonderful (and free) API/software platform to integrate for comments when you don't want to limit yourself to Facebook and have no interest in reinventing something done so well.

        It is a solid, A-1 piece of software.

        A blog without a database generally needs an offsite commenting system. Disqus is mine.
