Commentition Ambitious April 2016

It’s been an interesting month. I haven’t had much time to reply to comments, and I’m still trying to catch up. I’m about two days behind, but I’m catching up. Things will be back to normal soon. But there’s something very new about this month’s Commentition. There’s someone with a blog that has no posts yet. Wonder who it is? Keep reading.

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

1. We have a new number one commenter this month! With 77 comments, congratulate Gradmama2011! Her most recent post is a poem, I am me… A-Z challenge. And it looks like it’s A-Z Challenge month!

2. In second place, we have a bit of a recovery! Welcome back to the top two to stomperdad, who had 73 comments. His most recent post is also part of the A-Z Challenge, something I am not taking part in this year for obvious reasons. Check out I is for… #atozchallenge.

3. In third place, we have another person who’s moving up a bit. She was new to the list last month, and returns again with 65 comments. That’s Miriam! Her most recent post is about what’s been going on recently in her life. Take a look at Mundane Monday #54 Back to Basics.

4. In fourth place, we have our recent first place regular. But she has a very good excuse for dropping down. With 58 comments, it’s Joanne Corey! Her latest post is a bit political. Check out Feeling the Bern in Binghamton.

5. Next up, we have our sole newcomer to the list, and for the first time, someone who hasn’t made a single blog post. With 47 comments, it’s leeannarcher! Does that name sound familiar? It should, because it’s my sister. She started a blog that’s intended to show her trips to Japan over the past couple year. Take a look at it and encourage her to start up some posts!

6. And finally, we have an old number one who squeaked into the top six. With 33 comments, it’s S. R. Carrillo! Her most recent post is all about writing and reconnecting with her work in progress. Have a look at Fall in Love, Again.

It’s definitely been an interesting month. There are some things that I need to catch up on: comments and social media. I’ll get caught up with those this week, and hopefully everything will return to normal. Thanks to everyone who has commented during my move to Canada. You keep this place alive!

Commentition Moving March 2016

Moving, get it? I’m moving this month. Well, the month of February had a whopping 1,017 comments, so the whole face of Commentition changed. This month, there are some more changes, including a new person, a returning person, and a drop in ranks. Let’s see who’s in the top six this month.

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

1. Still in the number one position, though without that incredibly commanding lead, we have Joanne Corey with 82 comments! Her most recent post is about another blog, actually. Check out The strength of honeycombs.

2. Coming in second place is stom…no, wait. Where is he? Huh. Well, coming in second place is last month’s phenomenal newcomer, Gradmama2011 with 75 comments! Her most recent post is a reblog, though she does write her own little poem in Twins! Reblog from Autumn Ambles.

3. I found him. In third place, we have stomperdad, with 60 comments. Nothing like a prolific newcomer to shake things up with the rankings. Well, his number of comments hasn’t really changed. He does a lot of blogging about parenting, and the most recent post is no exception. This time, he answers his kids’ questions in Go Ask Your Father: ISS, Light Pollution, Traffic Lights, and Yogurt.

4. In fourth place is one of last month’s newcomers. Which one is it? It’s Miriam! She had 59 posts. Her most recent post is all about murals. I can relate to this, as I’ve lived in a town known for its murals, and have visited another that has a lot. Check out Urban Art in Nar Nar Goon.

5. In fifth place, we have a returning regular! She was a bit busy the previous month, so she wasn’t able to come around to post, but she’s back! S. R. Carrillo had 24 comments. Her most recent post is all about last month, a big summary of what she did. Go see February 2016. Find out what she was up to!

6. And finally, in sixth place, we have a newcomer! With 22 comments, say hello to The Shameful Narcissist! Her blog has a lot of variety. Her most recent post is all about writing. Check out Question of the Week: 3/6/16.

And that is it for Commentition from Japan! Next time around, I’ll be doing it from Canada. Thanks everyone for all your wonderful comments. I’m looking forward to seeing how things change for next month. And of course, comments are always welcome!

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!

Commentition Jovial January 2016

It’s a new year, but are the commenters new? Or are they regular fixtures in Commentition? Well, the holidays can do strange things to commenting patterns, some people have more time, others are too busy. Let’s find out who’s at the top this month.

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

1. Retaining the top spot with 83 comments is our always epic commenter Eric, aka stomperdad. His latest blog post is an epic one: Epic Awesome. See how awesome he is!

2. In second place, with 77 comments, is the always prolific commenter Joanne Corey! But not all was well with her in her latest post: What I didn’t want to spend time on today. Sometimes technology sucks.

3. Third place is also an unchanging one this month. It’s the always amazing S. R. Carrillo with 42 comments! It looks like 2016 is a big year for her, just as it is for me. We both have lots of changes. Find out about hers in Times, They’re a-Changin’.

4. On to fourth place, I’m beginning to sense a pattern. There is no change to the ranking so far. Yet again, it’s Thomas Weaver with 24 comments! His most recent posts are reblogs of Authors Answer, but before that, he posted about something that has become a trend with big publishers, even British ones, improper use of commas! Check out Beyond the Oxford Comma. I love the Oxford comma, by the way.

5. Change! And this is a return to the top six rankings for one commenter after a few months. Welcome back, SD Gates! That’s 21 comments. Her most recent post is about that lottery in the US with the crazy jackpot: The Powerball – $2.00 per ticket to dream.

6. More change! And another return to the ranks. With 18 comments, it’s Tracey Lynn Tobin! Her most recent post is something I’m dealing with as well. It’s about children and reading. Take a look at Raising a Reader.

That’s it for January. Thanks for all the comments in 2015, and I hope to see a lot more in 2016! Who will dominate this year? Who will join the ranks as a newcomer this year? Exciting, isn’t it? I’m looking forward to sharing with you all these wonderful commenters.
