The second essential skill of blogging is commenting.* It makes blogging a dialogue, not just one way communication.
It requires careful thought, attention to detail, and a compassionate heart. Commenting is the glue that connects bloggers to each other. I asked Huzzahnians to work in teams to show what they know about commenting. They organized their thinking then created visual messages though SlideRocket. They had to consider their essential messages as they had only five slides (as well as title and credit slides) to work with. Here are two of the finished presentations–more to come after final edits.
(Image credits appear on each slide–mouse over the image to see the credit.)
*And here is a news flash: READING, not writing, is the first skill of blogging. Read blogs. Read read read.
So readers, fellow bloggers, what would you add to our list of commenting guidelines, suggestions, and tips?
