Blogging 101: Say Hello to the Neighbors

Today’s Blogging 101 task involves making a debut into the outside blogging community, stepping out from the shadows and actually saying “hi” to a few people. The specific task is to…

leave comments on at least four blogs that you’ve never commented on before.

Okay, so where to start? I’ve enjoyed exploring the Reader, stumbling upon a few really interesting reads. Here’s where I’ve been and what I’ve commented on.

  • Confession: we don’t have a schedule…or a routine on the Happy Mama Happy Baby blog. It’s a nice blog. I was looking through the reader for blogs tagged “babywearing” and this one came up. The post resonated with me and the writer asked whether anyone else felt like she did about routines, which I do, so it seemed replying was all I could do!
  • Winter is coming on the Cycling Dutch Girl blog. Wow, what a story. I didn’t quite fulfill the brief here, because my comment was a little on the short side, but I was reading on my phone and a short on time. As much as anything I wanted to make the connection so that I can go back and read her post another time. I felt so inspired by her post – and also daunted. One woman cycling adventures always get my brain whizzing!
  • Rainbow Babywearing Blanket on the Wool Pickle blog. I love the name of this site and now confess that I’m a bit of a knitter and crocheter – more so since having a baby, almost entirely because babies are small enough for me to knit for before I get bored! The pattern really caught my eye because it’s so bright and cheery, simple-ish to make, as well as very practical (adding layers to your LO when in a wrap or sling is the babywearer’s challenge!) so something I might make in future. And I’ve promised to post a pic, if I ever get round to making it.

For my fourth comment? Well, I’m still looking. I’m really short on time – so cruising the Reader isn’t all that possible. I’ll head over there now to see what I can find and report back.
