The 31 Day Comment Challenge was a project designed to reinforce and introduce some good commenting habits. Through a series of activities presented and explained by the challenge hosts ( Sue Waters, Silvia Tolisano, Michele Martin and Kim Cofino), participants not only engaged with other bloggers on a series of conversations, but we cast a critical eye on our blogs.
I thought the challenge was a wonderful experience and a great way for me to move out beyond my own networks.
Last week, I learned that I was one of the “winners” of the prizes being offered by the challenge organizers, who were being supported by Edublogs (my preferred blogging platform) and CoComment, which is a tool that I began using in the Comment Challenge, as per the organizers’ recommendation, and have come to rely upon as a way to keep track of my blogging conversations.
Here is the news announcement from Michelle’s blog, The Bamboo Project Blog:
I’m very pleased to announce the winners of the 31 Day Comment Challenge! They are:
- For the most comments on a wide range of blogs (not just the “top” edubloggers)–A tie between Bonnie Kaplan and Claire Thompson.
- For the most high quality comments that thoughtfully reflect on the topic— Carla Arena
- For the comments that provoke and promote the most learning— Kevin of Dogtrax.
- The student award—Taylor
Each prize winner will receive:
Thanks to everyone who participated, and to everyone who voted, and most of all: thanks to the organizers for making us think and reflect and connection. I see a nice dinner with my wife in the cards sometime down the road.
