R is for Reciprocity

IComLeavWeToday is the first day of June’s IComLeavWe, the comment-leaving equivalent of NaBloPoMo.  Well, sort of – the aim is to leave five comments, and return / reply to one, every day during the week of the 21st-28th of the month.  So it’s an equivalent in that it’s a daily goal … thingy.  I know what I mean, anyway.  You can either leave comments on the blogs of the other participants, and/or any other blogs you like, really.  It’s more a self-monitored thing, I suppose, since unless you list all the places you’ve commented back on your own blog, there’s no central record.  Anyway!  The point is, it’s a cool way to find new blogs and meet new people and all – many of the blogs on the list are ones I wouldn’t normally read.  Although I am going to try to make an effort to start leaving comments for the people I do habitually read again.  I’ve been rubbish about it, really.  Perhaps I should have a try at a little double thing – five comments to the IComLeaveWe bloggers, and five to people on my own blogroll.  Could be fun!

In other news, there seems to be a bit of a hitch with this new version of WP… or at least, there is for me.  Something has disappeared some of the sections from the Post page (the one that I’m writing in!), including the all-important Post button!  I can get around it because there’s a draft-save mechanism, and then I can post from the edit screen, but still.  That’s not right!  I may have to disable some plugins and see what happens.

  1. My own blog is not WordPress but I have a constant problem with WordPress (which I suspect will happen with this comment but I’m sincerely hoping NOT) – for some reason, most of my comments left on WordPress blogs don’t “take.” Someone mentioned once that maybe my comments somehow get spammed, so I found a contact email for one blogger and mentioned it and sure enough they found my comment hidden away somewhere! It’s only with WordPress, though. So maybe WordPress is bug-ridden in itself? Just wondering! Anyway, welcome to June IComLeavWe!

  2. Sounds like a great idea to make new friends. :) I have also recently discovered IComLeavWe before it began, and am happy to be connecting with new people via it. The one thing am not sure of is the ‘return and reply to one comment’. Is this the comment that you leave on the bloggers blog that you first visit? To then return and reply or something entirely different? I am going to see if I can get clarification on that, as am not quite understanding what that bit means. Hope you are having a nice day and your knitting projects are going well.

  3. Happy ICLW! Knitting is on my list of things to learn this summer. I keep hearing how “easy” it is, but we’ll see. I might be hitting you up for some knitting tips in a few weeks!

    Take care!
