Google has just given Blogger a Plus-size upgrade. Now, you’ll be able to see Google+ comments for a Blogger post alongside Blogger comments for the same post.

It might sound confusing, but it’s a pretty natural integration.

“For example, if there’s a public Google+ discussion about one of your blog entries, those comments and replies will also appear on your Blogger blog,” writes Google engineer Yonatan Zunger today on the companyblog. “This way you can engage with more of your readers, all in one place.”

Here’s a quick look at how it all comes together:

Google+ comments on Blogger posts can be public or privately shared. Readers can choose to view top comments, all comments, or comments only from people in their own Circles.

If you use Blogger and want to start using Google+ comments, you can do so from your blog’s dashboard. Click the Google+ tab on the dashboard; from there, just check “Use Google+ Comments.”
