I owe a great big thank you to my friend, Lee, over at Tossing It Out today! Joined a movie blog hop yesterday – started hopping…TIO was on the list. I follow that blog regularly anyway. Hadn’t visited in a few days and the opportunity was there, so I took it.
Lee is one of those veteran bloggers who will teach you everything you’d ever want to know about blogging – except when you sign up, you have no idea you’re about to engage in a course on Internet writing. This is a good thing, trust me!
As a former teacher, one who believes learning is an experience (as opposed to…well, that’s some other blog posts for another time…I definitely have a few things to say about learning and education; they come from so many different perspectives too!)
So here I was reading his post on blog commenting. He discussed bloggers, visitors, conversation etc. Then he touched on a little thing called blog etiquette. Call me naïve, dense or a gazillion other things…never had it clicked like this before!
I first met Lee last year, as a newbie in his A –Z Challenge. That’s where I discovered the thrill of committing to making regular blog posts, interacting with your followers and enjoying myself in the blogosphere – as opposed to isolating myself with my writing & posting.
This year, commenting and blog conversation seem to be next on the list. It’s a learning curve, but hey, I’m getting there, one little baby step at a time.
Thank you for visiting Writing Tips!
Until next time, I wish you every good thing,
