I assumed (shame on me) that individuals would know how to write appropriate comments on blogs. I did not know that there were so many blogs blogging about the ways to do it. Interesting. I guess I would have to consider how meaningful it is for me to comment. I definitely comment on friends blogs, but have never bothered on others. For Library2Play purposes I have been viewing and attempting comments- always positive. I would never consider leaving a critical comment. I liked the idea of hyperlinking my blog to the comment... I never thought of that before. Good idea! I will have to say that an author commented on one of my classroom postings and it was very powerful for my students to see the impact of their writing.
