Thing #12: Creating a Community

Blogging can be a great way to establish a community of people that share ideals, thoughts, or views similar to your own. I know that as I continue to blog and learn more about blogging I will keep in mind the importance of repecting others in the blogging community. Sometimes it is hard to bare your heart and soul and lay it all out for someone to read. I will always try to consider this when responding and commenting to others blogs. I feel that respect is the number one rule in blogging. Also, it is important to remember that everyone has something important to share. Similar to a yard sale, one person's "junk" may be another person's treasure. I need to consider this as I share my tidbits of information. Something I write could actually be helpful and shed insight for someone. Never sell yourself short.

I have enjoyed beginning to read other's blogs and enter this community of blogosphere. I think my favorite two blogs so far are Cool Cat's blog by Vicki Davis and the Blue Skunk blog by Doug Johnson. Already I have used information from both of their blogs to help me learn about many different subjects. Some topics for blog posts that have been shared have actually helped me in my posts on discussion questions. They seem to have a plethora of useful information to share.

I like your "one person's junk may be another person's treasure" comment! So true. I have discovered so many interesting things... not on my own, but through reading how someone else explored. I think we need to remember that people can be shy about commenting, but that doesn't mean that they aren't enjoying the reading!
