You asked (slash begged, slash demanded): we listened. Comments are now available on Buttondown!
Give it a whirl by adding a cute lil comment to our latest newsletter.
We've been historically reticent to build comments, for a number of reasons:
But we're quite happy with the design and approach we landed on. Central to our philosophy is that comments should be optional and opt-in: you can turn them on or off on a per-newsletter basis, and you can choose to moderate them or not.
They're also portable and integrate well with everything else you're doing, either within Buttondown or outside of it. You can export all of your comments as a CSV, and you can also integrate them into your own website using our API, and you can fire webhooks or automations based on new comments.
