Thing # 12 Community through Commenting

I never knew there were rules for commenting on peoples blogs. I feel like I should take my own advice when I tell my students to back up there thoughts with a because. I'm always reminding my students to have meaningful reading responses and here I am... I should be having meaningful comments. Although, I am more of a lurker than a commenter. I have to say that I am getting better. I did enjoy reading How to Comment Like a King (or Queen) from Cool Cat's blog. I think his suggestions were helpful and useful. I know I like it when I have new comments on my blog so I have been trying to do the same with other blogs. Hopefully my comments have improved.

I did find some interesting blogs that I have added to my page. Hopefully I can add more to the list. It takes me awhile to find blogs that I can see myself visiting after all this is over. Simply Stated is a blog that I found. It is a blog from the magazine Real Simple. I love that magazine because the cover everything from food, home, fashion, etc. Simply Stated has postings about food, book, home, etc. I was interested because one of the postings was about cute items she found at Z Gallery.

Why haven't I visited blogs before? I didn't realize how fun they can be.

  1. Commenting will become easier as you become more comfortable with the blogging world, be it for professional needs or personal fun. You have a great way to start the commenting process by having a group to use in doing it. It is always easier to take the plunge into something new with the safety net of knowing others, don't you think?

    I too enjoy the Real Simple info, but I get it thru email alerts...not sure I have ever been on the blog...will have to check it out!
