Does this exist?

I don't really have enough regular readers to ask questions of them, though I kind of wish I did. You know, where you post something tentative, then throw it open to the crowd. If you're Matt Yglesias or Kevin Drum or Andrew Sullivan, you get back all kinds of responses, and a few of them are actually meaningful. Yglesias, for example, has taken to asking his readers for ideas on future blog posts - would that we all had such a way to generate ideas.

Nonetheless, I am going to do that today in faint hopes of getting a useful answer. Does anyone out there know of a notification system for the comments you yourself leave on other blogs, notification of subsequent comments? It's similar to what I found, somewhat belatedly, as an option in Blogger to notify my e-mail account of comments on my posts. But what I'm looking for now is a way to find out if the discussion is continuing on other sites.

Because now, if I make a comment on another blog, and the discussion continues, I have to go back and look to see if there are more comments if I'm to continue to engage. If I forget where I made a comment, I can lose the thread entirely. So, if anyone out there knows, feel free to give me a pointer.
