Being part of a blogging community is a lot fun! I’m sure most of you agree with that… 🙂 What makes it specially fun for me is the social aspect of it – visiting other blogs, leaving comments, getting comments etc.
In the past I’ve been very lazy to leave comments on other blogs and sadly I wasn’t really active on replying to comments left in my posts. And that’s pretty bad!
After taking my year long break and getting back to blogging I made a conscious decision to get more active in the commenting department as well. And boy have I been active! I’ve spread so much love for my fellow bloggers my husband is getting jealous. 😀 To make it even better I decided to share the awesome blogs I’ve left comments on with you.
I stumbled upon a short post by Juanapt at Just Plank Pages. The post, titled OMG, made me smile really wide and I left a comment to let her know that the post had done something to me. The post in itself won’t affect all, but it was funny to me for certain reasons.
One way or another I found my way to a blog by Michelle Gaskell called Stupidcats. I’m a cat person, (I own two), so the name intrigued me. I looked around and found the cutest drawings of cats who looked a little stupid and I left a comment to see if she would be interested in making custom drawings. Maybe I’ll want one of my two cats.
I came across a blog I really liked and decided to follow as well. I really liked the way Kat Richter at Fieldwork in stilettos writes and I could relate to her stories immediatley. She had written a post about how awesome her future mother in law is and I left a comment saying a few good words about my awesome mother in law.
Next I found a post of being a bad, bad blogger. NonSmokingLadybug at The Happy Quitter had broken one of the blogging rules and wrote a post about how sorry she was. Only, she wasn’t actually being a bad, bad blogger, because to me she had broken no rule at all. Aren’t we all allowed to say our opinions out loud even if it’s opposite of what the blogger had in mind. I believe that’s called a conversation and not a reason to call someone a bad blogger. I left a comment saying if she was being bad, then I was being bad too.
My favorite movie related blog is Fairytale Pictures written by Satu. Satu is my best friend in real life but her blog is pretty great and I love it. She writes posts mostly about movies, but she does tackle other topics pretty regularly. Lately she’s been extremely excited about the Oscars and she is very good at predicting the possible nominees. She thinks The Martian might get a nomination or two and I made comment to her latest post about it. I commented on how awesome I thought the trailer for The Martian was.
I found this German blog, mitneurodermitslieben, by Laura a couple of weeks ago. My German is really rusty but I still understand a thing here or there, but the reason I love visiting her blog is Laura herself. She seems to be a really nice and positive person to be around. I left her a comment on her about page wishing she would post something in English every once in a while. I also mentioned I nice and cool I though she was.
Last but definitely not least – An Alien! I found out there was an actual alien writing a blog trying to contact her family on her home planet Maximegalon. The alien’s name is Joules and her blog is Hitchhiker’s Guide To Internet. She’s very funny although I think she’s being deadly serious and not realise how amusing she is to us earthlings. I tried to have a conversation with her trying to let her know of her awesomeness, but we seemed to have hit a language barrier. She couldn’t understand all the words I was using and she obvioulsy used a different dictionary from mine. I have a feeling I may have insulted her in the process. I might try to reach out to her later in case she’s unable to hitchhike back home.
WordPress is filled with awesome blogs. Think about how many awesome blogs there are on other platforms.
