If you are new to visiting blogs, you might not be comfortable with leaving a comment or even know how! Well if you look under the title for each post you will see the word “comment.” Clicking on the word “comment” will open a box that will allow you to leave a comment. It does wonder to the self-esteem of the blogger if you leave a comment, even a short one. But most importantly it allows you to enter into a conversation that you might have missed. The very best blog posts are the ones in which the comments drive the conversation, leaving the post behind. So if you look all the way at the bottom of each post, you will see the word “comment.” Click on it and a box will appear.
There will be space for your name and an email address, those are required. There is also space for a website. If you don’t have a website that’s ok, but if you are a teacher consider leaving one that links back to your school. Then fill out the anti-spam word, they can be tricky sometimes 🙂 After all the red tape is finished, leave your thoughts in the box for comments. It’s just fine to state your opinion, give an example of something you thought about while reading, or tell me why you think I am crazy. I am especially appreciative of people who call me on my biases. Under your comment, where that big red arrow is, is a box to check if you want to be notified anytime someone else leaves a comment. That allows you to read comments that respond to yours, or other comments that just add to the conversation.
If you are new to reading blogs, welcome to mine! I hope that you join in the conversation. I know that when I first started reading blogs I never used to comment. I never felt like what I was thinking was important enough to leave behind, I never thought what I was thinking was god enough. Well what you think is important here. I really do want to hear your thoughts, and I would really, really love it if your first blogging comment was left here. When you become big and famous, just remember where it all started!
Welcome to Blogush! Kick up your feet, throw on some tunes, read some posts…and of course, leave some comments 🙂
