Writing comments

Writing comments is an important part of blogging. If you are reading other people's blogs, then let them know that you are there. First, it can become part of a conversation which can lead to enlightenment.

It is a way of showing that you appreciate what the other person is writing.

The comments button on this blog is at the bottom of the post in small letters 'Comment'. If no one has added a comment, it will just state 'comment', but it will also let you know how many comments there are. You can even comment on a comment!

Feel free to be creative with the task or to comment on someone else's comment!!
