Thing #12- Commenting

I have a confession to make. I am one of the lurkers that some of these bloggers referred to. I love to read everyon's blogs, but I rarely comment. Now here is the interesting thing, I always check my blog for comments. Comments make me happy! Comments make me feel like I am valued in my profession. I have a blog for my students at school. It is linked to my library website. I have been so disappointed this summer that my kids have not been using the blog. In fact, the lack of comments has made me quit posting. During the year I practically get "giddy" when the kids start dialoging on my blog. So, I need to dig deep and find out, why am I not commenting on my friends' blogs??

The two points that I found most interesting were:
  • Blue Skunk's comment that stated comments cause the blog experience to be more of a dialog than a sermon. How true that is! We learn so much more through the dialog than just sitting back (like I do) and taking it all in.
  • On Information Wants to Be Free I like how she explains that our comments enourage others to share their comments. Then, in turn we have a dialog! It is so simple really! Now I just need to do it!

  1. It is true that the more comments you make, the more comments you get! The comment traffic on my blogs is limited...especially the one I created for the 11.5 More Things.
    One way I find out whose reading is by use a Feedjit tracking map. Take a look at mine (on any of my personal blogs (not group blogs). You might want to add one to your blog?

  2. I also agree that we can learn so much from each other through comments. Keep up the good work!

  3. I completely agree with the "giddiness" that occurs when you recieve a comment. When I blog, I don't think of it as writing to other people...I guess I think it goes into cyberspace never to be found again! But when it is...I get excited! I really like your decoration on your page. I know that was not an option where I was looking. Can you tell me how you found this fun design?

  4. I have read many blogs in the past but rarely commented. I think this will all change now! I work with young children at a primary school. After reading your post, I wish I had some older students to share my blog with as well.

  8. For Diablo 3 players, one of the most attractive things for the game in recent days must be the patch 1.0.7 on PTR server. Although it is just available on PTR, you can enjoy these great changes before final Diablo 3 patch comes out. Compared with playing in PvE, playing in PvP mode really needs amounts of Diablo 3 gold as well as Diablo 3 items as you may be greatly damaged even killed with PvE items for PvP mode. Need to buy Diablo 3 gold or Diablo 3 items online? CheapDiablo will never let you down. Today I would share a post about Barbarian items stats in patch 1.0.7 PvP which is tested in PTR server!
