4. Comment on each others' blogs

Play MP3 Play audio introduction for this task

Hello, welcome to week 3 of 23 Things. To start the week we're encouraging you to have a look at the list of staff blogs and comment on a few of them.

If your blog is not on that list yet, you may want to go back and revisit tasks 2 and 3.

Blogging is not just about getting your message across. It's also for communication - other people can comment on what you have written, or respond to you on their own blog and link back to you. This is a public discourse. It could also be a way of starting arguments.

By now we have a nice list of staff blogs. You can see them on the wiki. You may not know which blog belongs to which person, but you can take a look at the blogs and see what they've written.

Your task

Go into a few other people's blogs and leave some comments. You may offer a word of encouragement, or read some people's reasons for blogging and tell them what you think of it.

Other people may comment on your blog.

Write a blog post about your experiences contributing to discussions on other people's blogs, and having people comment on your blog.

What's next?

You may want to keep watching some people's blogs for new posts and adding comments where-ever you feel like encouraging, helping out with a problem or responding to what they've written. There's even ways of subscribing to their blogs, but that will be covered in steps 9 to 11 of 23 Things.
