Keep On Commenting

Whilst I was away Zetor at Mog’s Blog nominated me for an award – amazing, thank you so much. I love making and receiving comments, so I really appreciate this award. I think the comments are as much part of a blog as the posts and making comments is a good way to make connections, start a conversation and share information. And it’s so encouraging to know that other people are actually reading your blog!

The ‘rules’ of acceptance are that you nominate 7 other bloggers to receive the award. This is very hard as so many bloggers are so good at commenting, sorry to leave anyone out (you all deserve the award), but here are my seven – in no particular order:

  1.  A Work In Progress
  2. Table Talk
  3. My Own Little Reading Room
  4. Just a Reading Fool
  5. Geranium Cat’s Bookshelf
  6. My Random Acts of Reading
  7. Read Warbler

Thanks to everyone who’s commented on my blog and if you have commented yet I’d love to ‘meet’ you – just say hello, it’s easy.

  1. Thanks for the nomination – I couldn’t agree with you more about the importance of commenting. Blogging for me is definitely a two way conversation and I think it is so important to visit and join in with the discussion. I hope all is well your end.


  2. Thanks so much, Margaret, for the nomination. I love commenting on blogs. I wish I had time to keep up with more of them, but I do like to actually pick up a book and read it occasionally! 🙂

    I’ve been thinking of you and keeping you in my prayers.


  3. I appreciate the award and will put it on a new page I have entitled “awards” on a tab on my header, along with the fact that it was you who nominated me for the award (including a link to your site). However, I hope you don’t mind that I won’t be tagging others with the award (I know I’m breaking the rules 😉 because so many book bloggers are out there who are great commenters, including the ones you mentioned.

    I’ve been working on becoming a better commenter within the last month or so. I use a program called CoComment to keep track of my comments on different sites, and try to respond personally to each comment on my own blog (or via e-mail in some cases)– with the hope that people still see it there (because with so many different blogging platforms out there, I think comments sometimes get lost).

    Thanks again, Margaret. I appreciate the award– and your comments, of course. 😉


  4. Thank you for such a lovely award! I’m so chuffed you wouldn’t believe it. 😀 For me, commenting on blogs is almost as important as doing my own posts. I love reading about what other folks are reading and leaving a comment to say I’ve passed through. I know the pleasure it can create to know that your posts are being read and someone has taken the time to say they agree or to recommend another book or whatever. Again, thank you. I shall take some time to think about it and then post my own nominees.

    Hope things are going okay… it can’t be an easy time at the moment.


  5. Gautami, thank you and you are a good blogger.
    Kay, thank you. I know just what you mean about reading a book occasionally. I’ve just come in from the garden (too hot!) where I spent 1 hour(!) reading.
    Unfinished Person, of course I don’t mind. What is CoComment? It sounds useful.
    Cath, blogging is a bit of a relief just now, a break from all the things that have to be sorted etc. The pleasure when someone comments is indeed a bonus.


  6. Thanks so much for this! You are very kind and I agree I love the discussion about books between readers. If it wasn’t for the comments aspect of blogging (both getting them and going out and leaving them) I wouldn’t enjoy blogging very much!


  7. Thank you very much from me, too, I feel very honoured. I’ve been very conscious recently that I haven’t been commenting as much as I want to, so the award will remind me to make more time for it. When I started blogging I didn’t expect the sense of community I found, and I value it very much.
