How to Leave a Comment

how to get comments 300x252 How to Comment on this Blog
A number of people have written me emails and told me they liked, or were amused by what they saw or read on my blog. Others have told me they wanted to leave a comment, but didn't understand how the comment system worked.  Still others have said they couldn't leave a comment because they do not have a personal profile, nor do they have a google address, or belong to any other social media.  . .

Don't worry.

YOU DO NOT NEED TO HAVE A PERSONAL PROFILE
TO LEAVE A COMMENT. 


To leave a comment follow these simple steps.

1.    Click on the word "Comment" at the bottom of the page.  
2.    Write your comment, or any question you want to ask.
3.    At the place where it says comment as - ignore the words personal profile, and list
       of social media sites.
4.    Simply go to the bottom of the list, and click on  the words name/URL. 
5.   Type in your name. You DO NOT NEED TO HAVE a URL.
6.    If you do have a blog, or a website of your own, include the address
7.    Otherwise, don't worry about it . You don't need to be a subscriber, have a google
        account, or belong to any of the other social sites on the list..
8.    Click on the word publish when you are ready to send your comment. ( By the way,
       you can preview your comment, and edit it before you send it).
9.    When you leave a comment, other people can  read it, and agree or disagree with
       you, and even begin a conversation.

  1. This is a great, fun blog. Thanks for creating it. I want to recommend 2 web pages about educating, learning, that are right up to date. one is http://www.dangerouslyirrelevant.org/ about the nature of North American education, and the other is http://shifthappens.wikispaces.com/ about what is currently happening in the world. Both invite viewers to become involved in the conversation. The 2nd one offers 5 downloadable versions of a 5-8 minute video called DidYouKnowThat which is well worth watching. The versions are updates from the original (2006/07) through (Aug 2011) and will amaze you.
