We read many posts that we found interesting and enjoyed

and we left many comments.

Of all the blogs we visited and posts we read in the past few weeks

these are our top three:


We really enjoyed Mrs Krebs Geography Surveys

We loved participating and we thought it was very interesting

how a language we share in many ways can have

different meanings in different parts of the world.

It certainly gave us  ‘food for thought’

if you excuse the pun.


We were very flattened to get a mention on

Mrs Tharp’s Class Blog on ‘Being Inspiring’

but that apart we thought her collection of posts

were very inspiring and that it was clever the way

they were linked together under one theme.

And we just have to give Larkin’s Weirdly Special another mention.

Check the link above and you will see how hard he is working

and engaging with other bloggers.


Recognising and commenting on other blogs is key to blogging.

‘No man is an island’ and this is true of blogging too.


Since we started blogging we have left oodles of comments

on other blogs and it can be discouraging not to hear back.


In general for every 100 comments we leave we get about 5 back.

That is why we treasure those five.


Happily this percentage is much better on the Student Blogging Challenge.


What can make up for the lack of comments in general is

what good and faithful friends some bloggers then become.

  1. Hello, Geniuses!
    I love this post and what you said about comments. I agree, comments are a treasure. Not very many people make comments.

    To make you feel better, I would like to remind you that you belong to an elite group, a small percentage of people in the whole world. Most people don’t even read blog posts. Most of those who do read them do not comment.

    Ah, but a few, like you, make valuable contributions to the world with your beautiful blogging and your classy commenting. Keep up the great work. You are becoming leaders!

    Mrs. Krebs

  2. Thank you very much Mrs Krebs,

    I look forward to sharing this lovely comment with the class on Monday. I have often called them Geniuses. They might really believe me, when they see that you said so too 😉

    With every good wish,
    Merry Beau
