Thing 06 – 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 right-hand side of the page). You may not know which blog belongs to which person, but you can take a look at the blogs and see what each person has written.

Your task

Go to a few other people’s blogs (they don’t have to be Chisholm blogs) and leave at least one comment. You may choose to offer a word of encouragement, or tell them what you think about something they’ve written.

Someone may choose to comment on your blog.

You may want to keep watching some of the blogs for new posts, and add comments wherever you feel like encouraging, helping out with a problem or responding to what’s been written. You may even want to subscribe to some of the other staff blogs using your RSS reader.

Don’t forget to write a blog post about this week’s Things, including your experience of setting up your feed reader account and subscribing to blogs, as well as commenting on a blog post.



In Week 3 next week we start with Thing 7 – Play with Flickr.
