I have noticed on the blog that some of your comments are not connected to the blog post. I’m interested to understand why…
For those of you who do write a thoughtful comment that is about the post, what do you do? How do you synthesize what you read and connect it to a thought that adds value to the conversation? How do you organize your thinking so what you have to write really shows others what you think?
What could you start doing to write more thoughtful and powerful comments?
Some strategies or ideas to consider….
- Do you read the post a few times to understand what it is about?
- Do you plan and write some ideas first before organizing your thoughts?
- Do you connect with what someone else has written and challenge their thinking?
- Do you write a thoughtful comment using a ‘word’ or ‘words’ from the text?
