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 Three regulars are out of the top six, and they’ve been replaced by three complete newcomers.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!
