People Who Comment (a Lot)

You may have noticed that bloggers or web site owners are rewarded for their comments at A Traveler’s Library by getting their latest post promoted, but ALSO, if you have a twitter handle, you can add that so that people can follow you. Cool!

More than Ten Comments during April:

  • Anjuli (Connie Ong)
  • Jessie Voigts (Wandering Educators–link above)

More than Five Comments during April:

  • Kerry Dexter (Music Road–link above)
  • Richard Mussler-Wright

I would like to mention that the blog drew a whole lot of new commenters last month, and we hope they will keep joining in the conversation. I just love to see those new names pop up!

Next month I will not be reporting on most comments–because the contest will skew the results. Back in July with a report on June’s commenters.

  1. love to hear what everyone has to say. Sometimes I need to say less and read more 🙂

    1. Thanks, Jennifer–I’m glad that you can see that affection. This monthly post is not terribly popular with readers, so I may deep six it, or shift it to a newsletter of some sort. Need a way to get the info to people who ARE interested.

  2. Don’t you just love new commenters? A new commenter is like an alien ship uncloaking in Star Trek. I always try to send them a special welcome. That being said, I look forward to more of your literature and travel cocktail over the month of May.

    1. Great metaphor for new commenters, except that I always assume they are friends. I do the same–send a note and invite them to come back often. (And if a reader out there has commented and I missed sending you a note, let me know.)

  3. I’m not a top commenter, but I do have something to share today!

    More travel novels! I just saw an opportunity to win a galley copy of All Over the Map by Laura Fraser. Travel…romance…and personal growth. Sounds good. Here’s the link to enter to win a copy from Random House:
