My Comments Rock!

I just love, love, LOVE awards!  Who doesn't, right? I am a new blogger and I am still learning about blogging and the whole bloggosphere.  I have a couple of awards and I value them a lot. They remind me that sometimes I get it right. LOL.
This award is very personal to me.  And the way Blue Cotton Mom from Blue Cotton Candy put it "... making friends is hard work. It means risking rejection by extending friendliness. We do that with our comments. We can either give cruise-through comments or really sit down and have a dialogue".  I do read a lot of posts and I do try to comment a lot as well.  Reading other people's blogs is getting to know those people and their personalities.  I've made "blogger" friends that I keep an eye on and check on once in a while( by following their blogs) to see what they are up to. 
Good commenting is taking time and reading a post, getting into the topic of it and speaking up your mind.  It is not just plain "great", "i like it", etc.  Every time you see a good comment (you know the one I am talking about) you really, really appreciate it.  And yes, you want to go back to that blogger and get to know him/her better.
Here are the people who take pride in their comments and they need to be rewarded:
Tammy @One Pink Fish
Linda @My Trendy Tykes
Nicole @Tired, Need Sleep
Georgine @Life on James Street
Christine @Propeller Head Mom - A Geeky Mommy Blogger
parentingBYdummies @parenting BY dummies
And if I could I would give this award back to the person who granted me with it.  Silly... But Blue Cotton Mom practices what she preaches.
These are the rules of getting/giving the reward:
1) Put the logo on your blog/post.
2) Nominate bloggers who take pride in commenting.
3) Be sure to link to your nominees within your post.
4) Let them know that they have been nominated by commenting on their blog.
5) Remember to link to the person from whom you received your award.
Thank you all for the wonderful impact you leave in the blogosphere.  Keep it up!

Thank you SO much for this! It is easy to breeze through posts and leave quick little comments (and honestly, I've done that), but I'm not sure what the point of that is. You are so right when you say it's about building relationships with others - we can't do that if we aren't really listening. Well, reading anyway. :) I'm very honored by this, so thank you!!!

Yeah!!! I love awards! Thank you so much I'm so excited. Please don't hate me if I don't give it out b/c I am SOOOOO bad at it, but don't worry I'll certainly be sure to thank you again and again and again and...

Thank you, thank you, thank you! My first award! I agree with Nicole, it is easy to post a quick quip, but I really like when I read in depth comments that people leave at my blog or elsewhere. Thank you again! I will be on the look out for commenters who deserve this award.

Thank you so much for the award. I never know if my comments really matter that much, but now I do. I'm glad to see you posting again.

Linda @ My Trendy Tykes said...

Congrats on your award and thank you so much for mine! Like parentingby dummies, I am really bad at giving out these awards, so please don't be mad if it takes me a while to get to it. Thanks again! I really appreciate this award!!
