Thing #12

I think commenting is important! By commenting you can help the author learn more about their post and you can ask questions (to gain more information). I follow several blogs about gardening and cooking. I ask questions a lot! It has given me a better understanding of the post.

I have left comment on several blogs from our group. I have connected with several people to share more ideas! I think commenting is fantastic for least me, I love to steal ideas and sometimes I need to ask a few questions for make a few comments.

I have left comments on the The Pioneer Women and Learning to Live. It is a wonderful way to connect with authors!

Thing #11 Library Thing...

LibraryThing seems sort of interesting. I can see how some children might find it super fun to search for books this way. I liked creating a list of books I love and I really liked to see what other people had to say. I have always wanted to be in a book club, so this might be a good thing for me!

Thing #10 Online Comic Strips!

Oh how fun these will be! I can really catch the children's attention in the morning with cute comics!! Love it!
