Hey everyone, guess what? Today is day 5 of 5 of my Commenting Basics Course. To day I had to find a comment that looked interesting and comment on it. It was hard to find a comment but I found one. Actually, I found more than 1 so I commented on more than 1 comment.
Some of today’s tips talked about linking. I’m new at linking but I’m halfway there. I guess I’ll see if there are more courses I need to take. LOL. >”<🙂🙂>”<
Today is Day 4 of 5 of my Commenting Basics Course. Today my assignment was to respectfully disagree with a post. I chose a post I agreed and disagreed with so it wasn’t as bad as it could’ve been. The post I chose was DANCE YOUR WAY THROUGH FALL – PLUS SIZE PARTY CHOICES . You can visit Miss Talkaholic’s site by Clicking Here .
Some things I have learned about Commenting Etiquette is:
Before commenting, make sure you’ve read the entire post and the other comments before yours. Your comment should never make the writer or the other readers) wonder if you actually read the material. When you’re sharing a personal story, you want to make sure yours is relevant—-otherwise, it can look like like you’re trying to grab attention away from the blogger. (Also, someone might have left a similar story – in which case you can reply to that person’s comment!)
Every post can be the start of a conversation. Try to add something substantial to move that conversation forward. Don’t get me wrong- most bloggers appreciate every comment, even if it’s just a simple ‘enjoyed this post.’ But a meatier response is more likely to result in visits to your own site. Explain why you’re moved to share your story, and how your experience connects to the original post.
If you wouldn’t say it to someone’s face, don’t say it in their comment thread. Criticism is fine, but there’s no need to be hateful. And remember, only a blog author can delete a comment, so if you comment in haste you might repent at leisure. Share your own experience, but don’t disparage another’s.
I’ve discovered many favorite blogs by becoming a fan of a certain commenter. Rather than any one comment, it’s the style and personality of a commenter that really makes me want to read more of their work. Whether you are smart, Witty, or just plain bizarre – be you! No matter your perspective, a unique voice will get attention.
If you have a lot to say on a certain subject, leave two or three representative sentences in the comment section, then link to a post on your own blog where you have expanded on the topic. This is a clever way to engage readers who share your interests.
Sharing a link can be a nice way to flesh out a comment — but a caveat! There’s one surefire way to get your comment ignored or worse, deleted, and that’s leaving a shameless plug. If you’re going to take the time to visit others’ blogs and then press the “comment” button, avoid this basic mistake.
A shameless plug is a comment that exists simply to provide a link back to your own blog. It says little — or nothing — other than your URL. Things like:
Really informative, I look forward to reading more.
What a good post! If you want, come visit my new blog:
There is a lot more content on commenting so I will give you the links. The links are:
Both of these posts are by Elizabeth.
I learned a lot. All bloggers should read these posts.
Please Share your comments with me. I want to hear what you think of both these posts + my post.
Today is Day 3 of my Commenting Basics Course and my assignment for the day was to read a post and ask 2 or 3 questions. It’s supposed to help spark ideas and possibly make the reader of the questions ask questions themselves and possibly give them ideas.
The post I read and asked questions on was KittyClysm. To read the post I read you can go their link which is https://kittyclysm.com/supawstars-award-sept-2017/ .
2 days left and I’ll be done with part of the blogging course.
I named this picture A Pleasant Surprise because my nephew and his family thought the deer ate all his sunflowers. As it turns out, some of those sunflowers still bloomed. He was thrilled because he put a lot of work into planting them.
Below is the result of lots of hard work by this 15-year-old.
Today is day 14 of 14 for my Fundamentals Of Blogging Course. I’m so excited I made it through my blogging course. Today I have to Create My Own Feature for my blog. What does that mean? It means to find readers on a daily basis I should commit to something on a weekly, biweekly or monthly basis.
What am I going to commit to on a regular basis? After some thought, I thought I would do book reviews of some books I have read and book reviews on books I will read. Of course I will continue to post pictures too.
If anyone has any suggestions, feel free to let me know and I will look at them then consider every suggestion. Also, please tell me what you think of my idea on doing book reviews regularly. Like I said previously, I will consider all suggestions.
Today is Day 13 of 14 of my Fundamentals Of Blogging Course so I’m almost Done. I haven’t decided if I’m going to take any more courses or not.
What We Learned:
Today we learned how to Build Your Brand. I was confused when I saw the title but when I read on I understood a little better what they wanted and meant. So what did they want? They wanted you to build a custom icon. This is how they told us to do it.
How We Did It:
Then after we were given these steps, were told if you want to change your image, you can find the uploading tool by going to My Site > Settings > Site Icon.
I have chosen as my Site Icon a picture of what the country looks like in the Fall. Someone from my sister’s family, the Eyth Family took the picture. In my opinion it is a beautiful picture and makes a good site icon for CRYSTAL’S PHOTO-BLOGGING SITE.
For Day 12 of my Fundamentals Of Blogging Course, we had to go to The Daily Post Prompts page and scroll down to the grid of responses. Then I had to pick 6 responses that caught my eye and read them. Then I had to leave comments on at least 2 of the responses. If you skipped the day before, then all you had to do was to leave 2 comments anywhere you’d like and follow 2 new blogs.
Even though I may have the choice to skip a day, my thoughts are if you don’t do the course work you don’t learn anything. Also, if you took this course then do the course work.
Today is Day 11 of my Fundamentals Of Blogging Course. Today I’m to make a prompt personal. How I do this is going to The Daily Post and see what the Daily prompt is and if it doesn’t move me, I’m to try another. I’m also to give a link to the prompt so that others can find my post on the prompt page.
Today The Daily Prompt Is: Overcome so that is what my post is about:
Overcoming something personal is never easy to do but it is well worth it in the end because what you’re striving to overcome you will eventually see the light at the end of the tunnel and when you do, it will be one happy day for you when you finally overcome your troubles.
When I was in Elementary School, is when I had to start overcoming my troubles. You see, I was picked on and/or bullied the whole way through Elementary School and High School and then after High School graduation, I got told by a counselor that I would never go to college. Not a good feeling.
But in the end, everything turned out for the best. My parents and grandparents supported me and I started out at a community college and graduated from there then transferred up to a 4 year college and graduated from there. Although, I had one professor think that the best thing for me would be to drop his class. When I stuck it out and passed his class he took me aside and told me he was glad I stuck his class out and that he was happy for me.
When I graduated, I was very happy because I had something no one could take from me-a degree. Also I was happy because I did something that I was told I would never do.
The End Result:
The end result was me not ending up with one degree but two degrees. I had overcome being picked on and bullied in school as well as being told I couldn’t do something. Overcoming this wasn’t easy but with support from my family I eventually overcame everything.
Everyone has something they need to overcome so don’t think you are alone because you’re not. With support you’ll eventually overcome your problems. Some problems are harder to overcome than others so they will take longer to resolve. Once again if you have support you’ll find out it’s easier to face.

“Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins, which took their lamps, and went forth to meet the bridegroom.”（Matt 25：1）Wise virgins can hear the Lord's voice, it's mainly because that wise virgins like the truth and seek the truth. They long for God's appearance. So they seek and investigate on the things about the Lord's return, and know how to distinguish the Lord's voice. Are you willing to be a wise virgin? Then hurry up to see whether the truth expressed by Almighty God is God's voice!
