As I moved around on the new Edublogs upgrade this morning, I enjoyed viewing all the comments left for me and this challenge gave me time to reread them and consider what I find interesting about comments.
It was hard to select just one, but Ken Allan‘s popped right off the page
I selected Ken’s comment because it points up the connections we are all making from the challenges being offered: Kevin’s Boil Down Your Week, Stacey’s Slice of Life, etc. Initially you might leave your response and that’s that, then you can start checking out new blogs and finally you leave a comment. And with this challenge I clicked to Ken, left a comment Ken found his way here and left something for me. (I would be using links and color, but I don’t see them yet on my toolbar.)
I’m excited about connections building from these great networks.
Tena koe Bonnie!
You seem to be having a lot of fun here too!
Well I finally made it to your blog-site. I was working on Kevin’s Day in a Sentence (with colour) tonight travelling home on the bus from work – I’m still working on it! But y’know I had deja vu! I must have come across your blog some time before, perhaps a week or so ago. I was very new to all this – still am.
Anyway, before your page scrolled down I suddenly knew who I was going to see. Now that I’ve thought about it, I think I must have looked at your site while inspecting Kevin’s – dunno.
Whatever! Nice to be here a while Bonnie.
Here’s some of my ingredients for creating a great comment:
1. The Comment should be positive and thoughtful.
2. The Commenter should feel comfortable sharing on your blog
3. The Commenter should leave something behind that might surprise the blog host.
4. And for the next layer of commenting, the commenter should move the conversation along with a question to the host and visitors.
What am I missing?? Hope this moves to a conversation…
