Thing 7 – Comment on a blog post

Blogging is not just about getting your own message out. Blogs are also great for two-way communication – other people can comment on what you have written, or respond to you on their own blog and link back to you. This is a public discourse.

By now we have a nice list of staff blogs (below the list of Things on the homepage & the Thing pages). You may not know which blog belongs to which person, but you can take a look at the blogs and see what they’ve written.

Your task

Go into a few other people’s blogs (not necessarily Chisholm ones) and leave some comments. You may offer a word of encouragement, or read some people’s reasons for blogging and tell them what you think about something they’ve written.

Other people may comment on your blog.

Write a blog post about this week’s Things, including your experiences contributing to discussions on other people’s blogs and having people comment on your blog.

You may want to keep watching some people’s blogs for new posts and adding comments where-ever you feel like encouraging, helping out with a problem or responding to what they’ve written. You may even want to subscribe to some of the other staff blogs.
