Commentition Funny February 2017

Another month has gone, and we have another Commentition! And amazingly, the standings in this month’s Commentition have changed! There’s a newcomer. It’s interesting when some bloggers come in unexpectedly and make the top six. Wondering who it is? Well, check it out!

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.  431 were my comments, the rest went to others.  So here are the top six:

1. In first place, retaining her top spot is Miriam with 83 comments! But just barely. It’s usually her or stomperdad, and you’ll see where he is soon. Miriam’s latest blog post shows a lot of reflection. Check out Mirror of my thoughts.

2. Coming in second, it’s none other than stomperdad! There was no doubt about it. He followed up very closely with 81 comments. His latest post is the always popular series where he gets his kids to ask him questions. Take a look at Go Ask Your Father: Fat Lips, Vision, AEDs, and Undertows.

3. And then in third place, it’s another person who hasn’t moved at all. It’s Sharon Hart (now curioushart) with 49 comments! Her latest post is a bit of flash fiction. Check out Titled, Untitled, Entitled.

4. It seems that no one’s changing places. But just wait, you’ll see soon! In fourth place, with no movement at all, it’s Thomas Weaver with 43 comments! His latest post is another in his very long series of grammar mistakes. Take a look at Writing Glitch #309.

5. Finally, a bit of change! This time, it’s the return of Authors Answer contributor D. T. Nova with 22 comments! His latest post is all about GoBots and other robots! I used to play with GoBots. Check out GoBots wiki!

6. And in 6th place, it’s a newcomer to the list! It’s J. R. Handley of jrhandleyblog with 19 comments! His latest post shows us an indie sci-fi film. I enjoy watching those kinds of films. They can be very interesting, and they’re easy to watch in a short sitting. Take a look at Indie SciFy Video #2.

Nice to see more variety recently. That means you can check out a new blog or two! I want to thank everyone who comments on this blog. I love the community that’s developed here, and I really enjoy reading your comments. You’re great! Keep on commenting, and we’ll see how things are in a month!

Commentition Jovial January 2017

It’s a new year and a new commitment to post twice a day. However, that ended quickly. And I really need to keep up with the comments. But I became so busy over the holidays that it was difficult to keep up. I’m caught up now, though! It also changed the commenting patterns of commenters. So, let’s see how things have changed.

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.  448 were my comments, the rest went to others.  So here are the top six:

1. Is this going to be another month with no change? Let’s see! Coming in first is, yet again, Miriam with 83 comments! Check out her latest post, which has a rather self-explanatory title: Finding some Peace and Quiet.

2. Next up, in second place, is another one that’s unchanged. With 72 comments, it’s stomperdad! In his latest post, he talks about what his kids are learning at school, but not quite what you’d expect! Take a look at Thank You School.

3. Coming in at third place is… someone new! Wow! For the first time in several months, we have a change! With 37 comments, it’s Sharon Hart. Her latest post features some creative writing. Check out Secret Keepers.

4. Then in fourth place is someone who is also unchanged. With 36 comments, it’s Thomas Weaver. His latest post is another piece of writing advice in the form of writing mistakes: Writing Glitch #275. Check it out!

5. And in fifth place, down from third, it’s Gradmama2011 with 29 comments. I guess we have some movement in the ranks. Her latest post is a poem. Take a look at ambivalence.

6. And finally, in sixth place, we have someone who dropped from fifth. With 24 comments, it’s my sister leeannarcher. Take a look at her post-less non-blog.

So, we actually had a change for once! The holidays affected the rankings a bit. I wonder how it’s going to change next month. If I can keep up to date on replying to comments, then I think I’ll be able to increase the number of comments, and the rankings may change again.

Of course, I have to thank all the commenters. Please keep it up! I love reading all the comments.

 

Commentition Decadent December 2016

As my post a day experiment continues this month, and likely ends at the end of the year, the comments still come in more slowly than they used to. And I expect the upcoming holidays will be slow, as well. But let’s find out how the standings have changed!

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.  439were my comments, the rest went to others.  So here are the top six:

1. The competition for the top position was incredibly close. Just 1 comment separates first from second! With 66 comments, our first place commenter is Miriam, up from third! Her latest post is a photographic one, but reflects on 2016 and looks ahead to 2017. Check out New Horizon.

2. Coming in very close behind first place with 65 comments is stomperdad! He’s down one spot. The top two were so closely matched throughout the last two weeks, I could never tell who would take the top spot. His latest post is part of a series he’s doing this month: The Daily Elf.

3. In third place, down from second, we have a regular top three commenter. With 61 comments, it’s Gradmama2011! Her latest post is a bit of a political one. Check out the trouble with time limits.

4. Next up in fourth place is someone who didn’t change position at all. With 37 comments, it’s Thomas Weaver! His latest post is part of his long-running writing mistake series. Check out Writing Glitch #246.

5. And then, in fifth place, we have someone who has a blog, but no posts. With 33 comments, it’s my sister, leeannarcher! Check out her post-less blog!

6. And finally, do we get a new commenter? Let’s see. With 25 comments, we have The Shameful Narcissist! She hasn’t moved in the rankings at all. Take a look at her latest post, part of a weekly Sunday series, Question of the Week: 12/11/16.

Well then, we finish the year with the same six commenters yet again. They’re persistent, aren’t they? It’s tough competition getting in the top six, so I have to wonder if the holidays are going to affect anything. Who’s going to be in the top six in the first Commentition of 2017?

Thanks to everyone who comments! I really enjoy reading and replying to your comments. I’m looking forward to many more years of comments!

Commentition Naughty November 2016

It’s a new month and a big change in the way I’m posting on the blog. Only once a day. This means fewer comments are likely, since there are fewer posts. So, it’ll be interesting to see how things change. This is not a permanent thing, though. I do plan on posting more often next month. Consider November my vacation! Let’s find out how much the standings have changed.

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.  451 were my comments, the rest went to others.  So here are the top six:

1. There seems to be a battle for first place lately, as it switches commenters from month to month. Returning to first place with 69 comments is stomperdad! His latest post is the always humourous series Questions I Asked My Kids (ep. 28).

2. Rising up from third place, we have another regular to the top six, Gradmama2011! She had 60 comments. With the American election having happened this week, her latest post is My answer to a question in the Washington Post this morning.

3. The top three have shuffled around from last month, so down from first place with 59 comments is Miriam! In her latest post, she’s helping out in a book launch! Check out Book Launch Celebration Party.

4. Now for the bottom three of this list (still top six, though!), up from fifth place is Thomas Weaver! He had 45 comments. His latest post is a reblog of yesterday’s post here on this blog, so his latest actual post by him is Writing Glitch #218. Check out his grammar tips!

5. Down from fourth place this month is my sister! Leeannarcher had 38 comments, so she’s staying in the top six. Check out her postless blog!

6. And finally, who rounds out the top six? Is it someone new? A regular? Well, with 35 comments, it’s The Shameful Narcissist! She’s maintained her position this month. Her latest post is a Final Fantasy themed one. Take a look at Final Fantasy Friday: Final Fantasy Tarot – XII The Hanged Man.

Wow! Our top six haven’t changed for quite some time. They’re tough to compete against! What will happen in December? Will someone rise into the ranks of the top six? We’ll see!

As always, thank you very much to everyone who comments! You are what makes the community on this blog great. Keep those comments coming!

Commentition Organic October 2016

It’s getting cooler now, as winter is fast approaching. And the carbon-based commenters of this blog continue to comment, despite the changing seasons, on both sides of the equator. Since the last time we did Commentition, I started a new job, became busier, and have resolved to improve the quality of the blog posts on the blog. I hope that will draw new commenters and intensify the competition for the commenter crown. So, how did things shape up this month? Let’s find out!

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.  435 were my comments, the rest went to others.  So here are the top six:

1. In the top position, we have someone different than last month. Moving up to first is Miriam with 68 comments! Her latest post features a lot of photos and water. Check out Weekly Photo Challenge: H20 -Snobs Waterfall.

2. Coming up in second is our former illustrious leader, stomperdad, with 67 comments! His latest post is a great post about his sons, My Reading Buddies. Definitely check it out!

3. In third place, we have someone who hasn’t budged from this position. With 56 comments, it’s Gradmama2011! Her latest post is a reblog, but she adds her own thoughts. Take a look at THIS UNREST IN ITS WIDER FRAMEWORK (Re-Blog from Jnana’s Red Barn).

4. Moving up from sixth, the fourth place spot is taken up by my sister, leeannarcher! She had 43 comments. Check out her postless blog!

5. In fifth place, with identical numbers and ranking, at 40 comments, it’s Thomas Weaver! His latest post is another one about editing, grammar, and writing mistakes: Writing Glitch #179.

6. Coming in sixth place, down from fourth, it’s The Shameful Narcissist with 36 comments! Her latest post is a Halloween themed questionnaire! Check out Halloween Fun Time.

It turns out our top six is still the same people as the last few times. If your name isn’t up there, this is your chance to compete! I love seeing comments on this blog, as they help contribute to the community. And this is a great community!

Of course, I have to thank everyone for reading and commenting! Without you, this wouldn’t be nearly as fun as it is. Keep commenting!

1,500 Followers!

1,500. That’s a big number. That’s how many followers this blog now has. And if you’re reading this, you’re probably one of them. And I have to thank you very much.

Without my regular readers who keep coming back, this wouldn’t be as much fun as it is. For those of you who leave comments, thank you! For those of you who like my posts, thank you! And for those of you who read my posts, thank you!

I started this blog for myself, to keep track of the books I read, and to write out reviews. I also started this blog for you, all the people who read it. I wanted to do a couple things, show you my writing and create a community of people who have similar interests as me. The community is now the size of a small town. 1,500! My hometown has a bit more than 2,000 people, so it’s quite comparable. It’s kind of amazing, come to think of it.

But I think the thing I have to say about reaching 1,500 followers is this: I appreciate every one of you who has followed this blog. Again, thank you very much!

200 and 16,000 – What Does It Mean?

Today, I passed a couple milestones! Isn’t that nice? Two in one day. But what are they?

Let’s look at the smaller number. 200. This video will explain it:

My YouTube channel reached 200 subscribers! Actually, it sits at 203 right now, but it reached 200 this morning. I like numbers. But it’s really not important. I just want to thank the people who keep me doing what I do.

But what about 16,000? It’s about this blog! And it’s about you, my readers. More specifically, it’s about those of you who comment. The blog reached 16,000 comments today! That just seems so unbelievable. With a bit more than 2,000 posts, that means about eight comments per post. But still, that’s a big number! I can’t really imagine it.

The biggest message I have to give to you is thank you. I love the community I have on this blog, and I love the community I have discovered in the booktube corner of YouTube. I’m looking forward to much more in the future!
