#Onecomment

What would it take for most people to post one comment on a blog? I know I try and do it. Andy from iTeach has a challenged bloggers and readers to do just that, here's his idea:

Here is the process.


1. Read a blog


2. Post a comment that is insightful and constructive.


3. Tweet a link to the blog and your comment. Use the hash tag #OneComment


EXAMPLE: I just read a great piece on iTeach blog, check it out! #OneComment


4. Bookmark the blog and return to it another time.


It is just that easy! This Project will help create a positive forum for all who blog and comment. There are so many good educational blogs out there and I look forward to hearing your feedback and engaging in your comments!

The second phase of this project will be a featured blog a week project. This forum will review and promote one educational blog per week. It will also try and introduce new edu-blogs into the learning community. I will be setting up a Ning for this venture. The sole purpose of both ventures is to promote learning and create an engaging dialogue between so many great academic minds. The twitter hash tag for this will be #1Newblog

Please send me your thoughts, suggestions and feedback on both new ventures!I would also like to put together a small team to help with this venture due to the time consuming nature of the project. If you would like to help your fellow bloggers and be an integral part of this venture, please contact me at onecommentproject@gmail.com

I have also set up a separate twitter account for this second phase. It will be @1commentproject. Please follow it for blog updates and blog promotions. When we spread the word about great blogs, we all shine!

I would be looking for help with the following:

1. Finding new blogs

2. Posting Reviews of Blogs

3. Archiving a Blog roll on the Ning

4. Monitoring the Ning


I am very passionate about this project and am putting a lot of time and energy behind it. My belief is that we can all learn from each other and have endless technologies to help us collaborate! I really hope to see my PLN jump on board with me and help promote the edu-blogging community!


One Comment Project T-shirts, beach towels and pillow cases to follow!


I've started doing this and I think it's been a great way to read new blogs. Happy Commenting!
