For blogs in particular, comments are an important part of the interactivity and sense of community that you're trying to create. One of the ways to keep your visitors connected to your site is to use a plugin like Subscribe to Comments. This popular plugin allows commenters to receive email notification when a new comment is made about the post. They can unsubscribe from individual posts, update their email address and much more. To make the editing and management of comments easier, a plugin like WP Ajax Edit Comments is very helpful. It even allows comments not placed into moderation to be edited by the commenter for a limited time.
Some plugins will display a list of the most recent comments, for example the very popular Get Recent Comments, while others, like Most Commented, list the top posts based on how many comments they have.
