Thing number 4 is about the importance of blogging. I will talk about comments that I made on other 23 things blogs, the comment I have received on my blog, and the comments I made on other outside blogs.
Commenting on a blog allows for a group of people who share opinions or enjoys hearing someones point of view to interact with each other. This creates a community of people who are all truly interested in the same subject. It is always important to remain positive even when disagreeing with the blog through commenting.
The first point I would like to make about my reading for this post is the Blue Skunk Blog's writer Doug Johnson's point that writers like to know that they have been read. If they did not want feedback they would not post their personal feelings on the internet.
The second point that I would like to make is edublogger makes me see how a non response to a comment may not seem very friendly to the person taking time to read my work. I will always try to comment back to a reader.
