C is for Comments again!And Communities and forums in Blogging
Though my previous post (B is for Blog Comments) was related to comments, I am forced to write a bit more about this wonderful subject called Blog Comments.
Every first Wednesday the members of IWSG community writes about their activities mainly concentrating on their writing fears, doubts, solutions to the many problems writers faces in their daily writing life. Alex Cavanaugh, who started this platform to help each other (The writing community). Though I missed some of the assignments I am glad to present my installment for the month along with this month’s A to Z Challenge.
In the recent past in relation to commenting on different blog pages, I have noticed and experienced a bit disgusting experience. While posting comments through Google’s G+ comment box the first comment we post never shows or receive any message like, “your comment is under moderation, or it will appear after the moderation” instead it will disappear in the air, but if you copy the same comment before pressing the submit button if paste it again and send it will show on the page, if you do not save the typed comment you need to type all the sentences again, for this, most of the time a tedious job and may not remember what we typed earlier!
So my dear fellow bloggers, those who are using the G+ comment box, please make a note of this and copy and save the comment before you press the publish/submit button. This is an alert I want to make this month’s IWSG page to my friends. Save your time and energy by saving your typed comments. If you are directly typing it in the comment box it is a must to take a copy and then press the publish button.
Coming to the Communities and Forums
Yes, Blogging communities are an integral part of a blogger and his activities.
Through these platforms, a blogger can accrue knowledge about blogging and many other related activities on blogging. And at the same time, it will give a great boost to blog traffic to their respective blogs.
There are a good number of blog communities in the world of internet. In this post, I am introducing some of the wonderful communities where I am a member.
In fact, I enjoy being in these pages of fellow bloggers meeting together to share their views, doubts, and suggestions.
In relation to A to Z Blogging the first name come to my mind is IWSG The Insecure Writers Support Group. This forum/Group is founded by Alex Cavanaugh, one of the Co-host of A to Z Blog Challenge. Alex is a terrific novelist who wrote a good number of books which are bet selling science fiction novels in the western bookstores. In this page people from around the world air their doubts, fear, ideas, suggestions in relation to blogging and writing. Any blogger can visit this page and join in by clicking on this link: IWSG
The second community online is the community called Kingged.com, where a good number of well-known bloggers share their posts in different categories. It offers cash awards and many other giveaways through this platform. The founder and Admin of this community are Mr. Kingsley. He personally deals with the members and answers the queries. In the recent time, they have introduced various other opportunities for the writers to make money through their activities on these pages. One of my blogger friends wrote a review on this platform. The author Richard Martin says in his article titled: Hail The King! Bloggers Rejoice! Kingged.com Review… Is a wonderful community for bloggers,
