Discovering New Blogs (March 21, 2016)

This weekend, I saw a Tweet from Bloggers Meetup that mentioned a new session for Blogging 101: Commenting Bootcamp. In that instant, I decided to join because of how wonderful the last Blogging 101 course went for me. Also, I still need work in the areas of finding new blogs and commenting on them.

The Commenting Bootcamp course just started this Sunday. The first assignment is for each blogger to find three blogs to comment on. The blogs don’t have to be run by those who have recently joined this course, but they have to be blogs we never commented on before.

Of course, it was very easy to find more than three blogs, but I will stick to three for this assignment.

The first comment I made was on GeorgieMoon’s blog, for the post “Do you understand me?” The post looked at an article from The Daily Mail that covered old British sayings, their meanings, and origins. Since I recently started a series of featured posts that deal with famous sayings this post clearly stood out to me.

The next blog post that intrigued me was a post by Majka. She is taking part in a Color Your World Challenge. I left two comments actually, for the post entitled “COLOR YOUR WORLD – RADICAL RED.”

The third comment I left was for the post entitled “Doing Nothing” on A Grammas Life. This was a nice, calm post to start the week.

This assignment was fun and easier than I expected when I found the time. It’s always good to find new bloggers and start up a conversation with them.

  1. There are so many great blogs in the blogsphere that I feel I could spend hours everyday blog hopping and commenting. Good for you for having the discipline to limit yourself to three…and then for taking a few extra moments to turn your participation in Commenting 101 into a blog post! That’s something I like to do at the beginning and/or end of a blogging workshop or blogging challenge, too.

    1. I had previously taken the Blogging 101: Zero to Hero course and ultimately decided that it would be advantageous to chronicle each assignment. Since I decided to take the Commenting Bootcamp, I wanted to do the same. At one point I though, “How could this be done for commenting, though?” When there’s a will, there’s a way. Also, I did do something like that in the previous course when we had to make comments on other blogs.
