How to Install Google plus comment plugin in Blogger

Slick and awesome! That’s my first impression on Google plus comment plugin. For now it’s available for blogs that’s hosted in Blogger. It surely will boost the conversation of your blog, and this is the main attract of the new launched Google plus comment plugin (or u prefer I to call it comment system?).

Disqus, intense debate, Facebook comment plugin is 3rd party add-on, hence they require new account set up; unlike this upgrade by Google, bloggers now can comment anyway! Even wordpress hosted blogger log in gmail doesn’t they??
