How To Comment On This Blog Post

Hello, Everyone.

If you are already very familiar with blogging, you can skip this.   If, however, you happen to be one of the fine and friendly folk to whom I’ve dramatically exclaimed that “I HAVE A BOOK BLOG!!   GO READ IT!!! and you actually have ended up here, out of curiousity, I’m sure, then please do continue reading.

And, by that I mean, LEAVE ME A COMMENT!  

It’s oh so much more fun to have you leave me a comment here telling me you’ve read the post or disagree with me that The Golden Compass deserves many awards or want to share your favorite book or author.

I know what you are thinking.   HOW!?

I’ll tell ya.   Do you see the title of this post “How To Comment On This Blog Post” at the top of the page?    Under that line is the date published, a few key words called categories or tags, and then a number followed by the word ‘comments.’   If you hover the mouse pointer over the word ‘comments’, it should underline which tells you that it is a link, right?   Clicking on that will open up a dialogue box – if I already have a ton of comments, then you will have to page down to get to the LEAVE-YOUR-REPLY place.

And it’s OK if you don’t have a blog to URL me to.   And I’m the only one who will see your email address so go ahead and fill in that box (it’s required…)  and you can make up a name if you want!

I don’t mean to sound demeaning or sarcastic or  – what’s the word??   I really do have MANY, MANY people tell me that they read my blog but didn’t know what to do with it.   And, I’m referring to you C__ and J__ and…   They tell me they can’t figure out how to leave a comment.   SO, don’t feel foolish – a LOT of people who are now highly-skilled bloggers, felt the same way when they first explored this nutty and very fun activity.

And, if you love books, and LOVE to discuss the books you read, or want to find out good books to add to your tbr (to be read) list, then blogging is the BEST adventure!   I highly recommend it.   I feel like I’m meeting the nicest people and I keep finding free books in my mailbox – what could be cooler than that!?

Oh, and just to confuse you…    If you see on the right hand side of this page:   RECENT COMMENTS header and then some pictures (called ‘avatars’ in the blog world) that say something like ‘bkclubcare (person who commented) on How To…   (post title)‘ then you can click on that post title and read that person’s comment.    That is another way to find the place to add your own comment.   If you click on the person’s name, you will go to their blog and if they don’t have a blog, you’ll go somewhere else, I guess.

Happy Blog Exploring and THANK YOU FOR STOPPING BY!   let me know what you think.  

Per Lisamm’s sug (see 2nd comment), this has been amended to ask a few questions, not to test if you read this post in its entirety but to help you think of something to reply with:   Do you love to read?   What’s your favorite genre?

  1. I’ll kick it off so that it doesn’t say ‘0 Comments’ – this is also called autocommentarianism. I don’t care that it skews my comment count. I’m not that addicted to my stats. Really! I’m not!!

  2. Care, if comments are what you’re after, you could try asking a question at the end of your posts. Works for me!

    Thanks Lisa, this is more of a HOW TO since so many people tell me that don’t understand how to leave me a comment. But, yes, that is excellent advice and I think I’ll go amend this post to end it with a more comment-encouraging question. Thanks!

  3. I loved the Golden Compass!!! I thought the movie was awful though!!! I wish more people would comment on my blog, I check my stat center and see all my hits, but very few comments.

    OK, Janelle! I’m off to go visit your blog now! I just recently turned on my search finder tracking and I thought my hits would go up but it hasn’t, really. That’s ok – too many people reading and I get stage fright.

  4. This is actually really helpful – I might have to email it to my mom and a few other friends. They do read my blog from time to time but they can never figure out how to comment. 🙂

    You won’t believe HOW MANY people tell me they visited but didn’t figure out how to leave a comment. I had 3 people last week – which is what prompted this post. Of course, by the time they remember to check it again, this post will be buried, ha!

  5. Oh, the secret to getting more discussion! Good luck in your search. 😉

    Meanwhile, my favorite genre is YA AND/OR SF/F (bonus point if it’s YA SF/F). 😀

    Thanks Renay! let me guess – do you love the Twilight series?
