I appreciate comments! I decided to give back to the people who read my blog and to offer an incentive to leave a comment. You should notice the shiny new top commentators widget on the left side bar. It is currently set to reset each month. I think recognition should be relevant to the moment. I would love to hear if you think resetting is not a good idea. I am still learning.

I have to thank Katy Castro from the blog, I’m Blogging That! As someone who is new to the blogging world, I have learned quite a bit from reading her blog and following her comment section. She breaks things down into easy to follow bits and is great about answering any questions from newbies like me. I highly recommend her entry titled, “Gain Authority With Top Commentator” and “The Cents of Your Blog“. Take a few minutes and check out her site!

    Thanks for the shout out and nice mention of my blog. I’m happy that I could not only help but inspire you to add the Top Commentator plugin!

    Feel free to give me a shout if I can ever be helpful.

    A comment plugger is a great idea. The only drawback, is if several people with the same name comment, it will count them the same and only plug the very first link in your comments history database. Bleh. Of course, returning comments is another good incentive for leaving them.

    Thank you for visiting my blog for Thursday Thirteen. I agree that the Brave game is another fun outing. We did that last year with my kids. I didn’t get to watch much of the game but we had fun at the stadium.

    Where would I be able to find the link to a top commentators plugin?

  • Beekers

    Kim: I use WordPress. This is the site for the widget. http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/top-commentators-widget/

    I prefer that to some who show last comments left. For some bizarre reason it makes me feel self-conscious if a comment I have left appears in the sidebar.

    Am very tired, so I’m sorry if this comment is short. But I think it’s a great idea to reset it each month! Am going to put this kind of thing up on my site too. 😀 Thanks for the great idea!

    Mine resets every week. I’m just too lazy to change it. I like the minimal look of your blog. I’ll be back. I also read Katy’s blog.
