Catching Up on the Bloggers of the Week

Hi, Everyone!

I wanted to post links to some Bloggers of the Week you may have missed commenting to. Get the conversation going, continue it, or revive it altogether. Remember to improve the conversation as best you can.

Visit their posts and leave feedback for them. Engage deeply in the conversation. Don’t just respond with simple phrases such as, “Good Job!”, “I agree”, “Nicely done!” but ask questions, engage in the material, do some extra research, link to other material you have found on other sites, etc. Think critically about the topic. Maybe the topic will inspire you to write a follow-up on your own personal blog. If so, then provide a link back to your blog in the comment area. Always aim to improve the conversation in response to both the author and other commenters. Check back often throughout the week. You may have a reply that you wouldn’t want to leave unanswered. How often should you post? As often as you feel necessary. You’ll know when the conversation has come to an end and there is nothing else to say.

Let the conversations continue!
