Commentition Festive February 2016

Late January and early February have been an extremely busy time, especially in the comments. Three regulars are out of the top six, and they’ve been replaced by three complete newcomers. These newcomers are also relatively new to this blog.  Who’s out? Sierra, Thomas, and Tracey, all regulars to Commentition. Let’s meet the Commentition rookies.

The top six commenters are based on the previous 1000 comments, nearly half of which are mine.  The rest go to all of you commenters.  443 were my comments, the rest went to others.  So here are the top six:

1. In first place is someone who is no stranger to this position. However, I have never seen this number of comments before. With 127 comments, the new leader is Joanne Corey! She blew away the competition. Her most recent post is a useful and important one: New email address. This makes me think I should have an email address specifically for my blogs.

2. In second place is another regular of ours who is almost always in the top two. With 62 comments, it’s stomperdad! His numbers have slipped, but there has been an increased number of comments by others. His most recent post is 10 Questions I asked my kids. Check it out, because it’s quite funny.

3. Our first newcomer to the top six is our third place commenter. With 42 comments, it’s Gradmama2011! Please go on over to her blog and say hello. She does a lot of poetry. Her most recent post is A trio of Shadorma poems of Trees.

4. In fourth place, we have another newcomer. With 22 comments, please welcome sonofabeach96! He’s participating in a challenge for his most recent post. Go on over and say hi to him and read Color Your World-Granny Smith Apple.

5. And in fifth place is our third and final newcomer to the top six! With 20 comments, it’s Miriam! She’s a freelance travel writer from Australia, and she blogs a lot about travel. Say hello to her and check out her latest post, Wednesday Wandering.

6. And finally, rounding out the top six is a returning commenter. With 16 comments, it’s SD Gates! Her most recent post is a very funny post about a very modern problem: CP Zombies are everywhere!

And that brings us to the end of this month’s Commentition. What a month it has been in the comments. Joanne and Gradmama2011 have dominated the comments recently. Stomperdad has another rival to contend with! What will next month bring? It’ll be my last Commentition while living in Japan. Let’s make it a great one. Thanks for all the comments!

  1. Oh my, what a lovely surprise to find my name on your list. I’m honored. Thanks so much for the mention. Look forward to many more conversations.

  2. Thanks for all the evocative posts and comment-conversations, Jay Dee! I’ve been spending a lot of time in the blogosphere recently, posting every day in January for Linda’s Just Jot It January, and really got carried away with commenting, apparently!

    It’s great to see new people on the list. I’ll be hopping over to their blogs to check them out.

  3. What a commentition! That’s a lot of comments. Second place isn’t too bad. 127 comments by Joanne is seriously impressive. Good game everyone! 🙂 I’ve been spreading my comments out among so many other blogs that my numbers here dropped. I was hoping you wouldn’t notice. I’m still reading, though!

      1. HA! No worries. I haven’t been commenting on as many posts as usual. But I guess I have been following up Jay Dee’s return comments with more of my own. I’ve been commenting more on fewer posts, if that makes any kind of sense.

          1. And there you two go having a conversation. I like seeing that. I get to sit out of the conversation a bit and just watch, since it’s not actually addressing me 🙂

            1. It’s been a while so I can’t for the life of me remember what we talked about. But I have a feeling we talked about having a discussion with someone on someone else’s blog 🙂

            2. HAHAHA Now that you mention it, I think you’re right. That’s too funny. And now we’re doing it again. Perhaps we should make this discussion a monthly regular?

            3. That would be a very big surprise. A shock, I think. Come to think of it, where’s Sierra (S. R. Carrillo)? Actually, I know, she’s posted some videos recently, but been quiet on the blog. She just moved and is starting up a new life outside the Army.

            4. Absolutely. And I’ll probably be a bit quiet during our move. I won’t be replying to many comments at all. I don’t think I’ll catch up, so I may just have to skim over the comments and reply where necessary.

    1. Oooh, I always notice 🙂 I’ve been trying to comment on other blogs, too. I found I was too busy this week, and several times fell asleep much earlier than usual. Oh well, maybe I need the sleep.
