Never heard of it? Well...I made it up this morning! Hahaha!! Many bloggers have shared that people hardly ever leave comments anymore. I'm not sure why? Maybe Pinterest has made blogger/reader relationships more distant? Maybe people are "too busy". These places where you get great ideas....there is a person on the other side of the screen!!! It really encourages bloggers to keep doing what they are doing when they hear from YOU! It doesn't have to be much...just a quick comment to share you like the project/idea....how you are using it in your room...or questions concerning the project. That will fuel your favorite bloggers to keep sharing!!!!! So today...go leave a comment on at least 2 of your favorite blogs!!! What are you waiting for...go...comment!
YOU DO NOT HAVE TO COMMENT ON MINE! I'M GOOD!! :) I WANT YOU TO GO MAKE ANOTHER BLOGGERS DAY...THAT WILL WARM MY HEART!!!
Well here is a comment anyway. I love all the art ideas, including yours, I have a huge clearfile where I print them out as well as the links on my favourites to show on the overhead projector. I teach 7-9 year olds in a regular classroom here in New Zealand. Art is our favourite and I always challenge the children with the wonderful art ideas. I am continually amazed at what they see and perceive. Keep up the good work. This is one person for whom you have made a difference.ReplyDelete
:) you are too kind Mrs. B!!!! Send me some pics of what your students are making some time!!Delete
A great idea!ReplyDelete
Thanks for this post. I agree, sometimes blogging is like whistling in the wind, you wonder if anyone is hearing you!ReplyDelete
Such a good idea! And you are right - the comments really matters. So I will definetely leave more comments, when I surf around in blogland, getting inspired by all the fantastic art teachers around the world. :-)ReplyDelete
good idea, ted-a-rino;)ReplyDelete
Made me laugh! Have a good week!ReplyDelete
For real! It's kinda sad when you are excited about a post and all you get are chirping crickets. This is my second comment today and I will leave a few more:)ReplyDelete
Nice idea, Ted. Thanks for the thought!!!ReplyDelete
HA! I was wondering why I hadn't heard of this "holiday" before! I will leave a couple of comments on other blogs today as I catch up on my blog reading. But first, I don't know if I've ever said to you, "thank you for your blog! I love seeing your ideas and hearing your stories and your blog roll is so great! My blog is on there, and it brings many people to my site--which really helps me reach more people with my work." Thank you for all you do, Mr. E!! And happy holiday!!ReplyDelete
Have you thought of losing the Goatee and having something different?! Its MOvember in November where guys grow facial hair for Testicular Cancer - maybe this is your moment to experiment!!!ReplyDelete
There you go theres a comment for ya!!!
HA HA ...Jacqueline, I don't think my wife would be a fan!!! :)Delete
I have never been one to leave a comment on a blog...I don't know why, but I love your site and have been inspired many times from knowing and learning from you. Keep it up because I know that I have had more than a few ahh ha! that's how you do it! moments from you. Thank you!ReplyDelete
As a former art teacher, (probably during the years when you were in middle school), I love the excitement that you bring to your classes, school and this blog. I am a preschool teacher and am always looking for current art ideas that are adaptable to my "scribblers". Thanks for having such a creative spirit. Your former teachers would be so proud.ReplyDelete
This made me laugh-- thanks for inspiring me to post. Not only do I follow your wonderful blog, but I posted about you a few weeks ago on my own blog and now I get to tell you about it! ;) Keep up the wonderful work. Your passion comes through in your blog!ReplyDelete
I always leave comments! It is fun and friendly and gives encouragement to the blogger! I think some people are afraid of sounding stupid, but, hey, live a little! Take a chance! Share your thoughts! It is okay to make connections! Thanks for the reminder and I agree with the comments here! Your blog is a keeper!ReplyDelete
Great idea :) I totally agree with you on the missing comments and when people actually comment on my blog it's all worth the effort of blogging :) I'll look forward to follow you and your blog :) Greatings from Denmark, EuropeReplyDelete
