The One Comment a Day Project

Andy over at http://iteach20.blogspot.com/ is launching a great concept for commenting on other people’s blogs. He wants to keep the concept simple and manageable, so his idea is for folks to make one comment per day on a blog you don’t often come across.

Here is what he says:

Here is the process.

1. Read a blog

2. Post a comment that is insightful and constructive.

3. Tweet a link to the blog and your comment. Use the hash tag #OneComment

EXAMPLE: I just read a great piece on iTeach blog, check it out! #OneComment

4. Bookmark the blog and return to it another time.

It is just that easy! This Project will help create a positive forum for all who blog and comment. There are so many good educational blogs out there and I look forward to hearing your feedback and engaging in your comments!

The second phase of this project will be a featured blog a week project. This forum will review and promote one educational blog per week. It will also try and introduce new edu-blogs into the learning community. I will be setting up a Ning for this venture. The sole purpose of both ventures is to promote learning and create an engaging dialogue between so many great academic minds. The twitter hash tag for this will be #1Newblog

Please send me your thoughts, suggestions and feedback on both new ventures!I would also like to put together a small team to help with this venture due to the time consuming nature of the project. If you would like to help your fellow bloggers and be an integral part of this venture, please contact me at onecommentproject@gmail.com

I have also set up a separate twitter account for this second phase. It will be @1commentproject. Please follow it for blog updates and blog promotions. When we spread the word about great blogs, we all shine!

Go on. Give it a whirl!

Peace (in new explorations),
Kevin

    • And I just got an update on the shared Twitter hashtag:

      In order to condense our tweets, we will be utilizing a new hash tag. Please begin using the #OCP tag for all of your One Comment A Day Project Tweets! Thanks to all! You are making this project a glowing success!

  1. Great idea. I think I’ve been waiting for something like this since our May month of comment challenges last year, remember? I am a bit distracted at the moment but I will take you up on this one,
    Bonnie
