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.
A Soldier’s Promise is a book by Cynthia Thomason . This book is a Heartwarming book from Harlequin Romance Books. Don’t let the name Harlequin Romance fool you, Harlequin has more than just romance books. They have: Suspense, Passion, Home & Family, Inspirational, Western, Historical, Sweet Romance, Medical Romance, Paranormal and even have Books For Teens( That is in a different link listed below in the Link Section of this post). A book for everyone. If you don’t see your preference listed, there is a search box you can use in the link called Harlequin Books
This is about a soldier and his teenage daughter. The soldier is right out of the service and also just lost his wife. He is trying to adjust to civilian life. A teacher who is trying to get over own problems tries to help the soldier and his teenage daughter. The teacher has made a promise to herself. Will she break her own rules/policy?
Brenna Sullivan has a strict policy about not getting emotionally involved with her students. Yet there’s something about the new student, Carrie, and her father that has Brenna breaking all her rules.
Mike Langston’s parenting methods may be more than a little outdated, but Brenna is struck by the brave and honorable man he is and, despite her better judgement, she’s falling deeper and deeper for him. But how can she cross the line when their feelings start to grow?
What I Liked:
I enjoyed reading a book about a soldier who’s right out of the service. I liked reading that this wasn’t the only problem he had. Between being right out of the service, raising a teenage daughter by himself plus his wife dying, it made the book more interesting to see how he solved these problems. I liked reading that the teacher who had her own problems reached out to try to help a veteran soldier solve his problems. Did the teacher and the veteran soldier get their problems solved? You’ll have to read the book and find out.
What I Didn’t Like:
I can’t think of anything I didn’t like about the book. Yes, it was that good in my opinion.
Today is Day 2 of my Commenting Basics Course and today I am to share a personal story. You can read my story HERE . This was to get us talking and involved more in commenting.
I started another blogging course. It’s called Commenting Basics and it will last 5 days. Today is Day 1 for me and I had to comment on 3 blogs I never commented on before.
Each day will be a different task to do. They give good advice and tips on commenting too.
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.

“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!
