I am sure most bloggers will agree that conversation and community are as important to blogging as writing, creating art, journaling, and sharing. And what is the best way to engage in conversation with other bloggers if not comments? Although commenting on other blogs may seem like a lot of work (and it certainly is, especially if you strive for quality as well as quantity), the rewards of such engagement are great, and not only are they backed up by the blog stats, which I am sure every blogger watches like a hawk, but also by building relationship with others in your blogging niche, and finding inspiration and ideas for your own posts.
Like many of you, I don’t have a lot of spare time on my hands, and I wish I could do more in terms of commenting and visiting other blogs, but I try to do my best. That’s why the Top Recent Commenter award is so dear to my heart. I would like to thank Marcy at Orples.wordpress.com for her generous gesture. She is a top commenter on my blog, and I think she has a special gift for creating articulate and uplifting comments.
Now I am supposed to nominate six bloggers, top recent commenters on my blog. If you choose to accept the award, congratulations! If not, please look at this post as a token of my infinite gratitude.
- TBM at 50 Year Project
- Cath at Instant Affection
- Jenny at Jenny’s Serendipity
- Jake at Jakesprinter
- Judy at JayJays Favourites
- Lynne at Beyond the Brush
