Who's Reading? You'd Be Surprised!

What's the Best Blog Comment You've Received?

I'm human, I like the feedback from ActiveRain, both in emails and blog comments.  Most are well thought out, some raise issues that I hadn't thought about and some are the proof that people are reading, so it keeps me writing.

Perhaps the best feedback I have received came in this morning in response to a blog written Friday called Dog Training Tips at the Southern Ocean County Animal Shelter. I wrote about Martha Windisch, a certified dog trainer from Chatsworth, who volunteered to provide tips and answer questions at the Shelter.  This is her comment on my ActiveRain Blog:


"Thanks for the publicity!  We had a great crowd of people today at the shelter for the Ask a Trainer event in celebration of National Train Your Dog Month.  I answered training questions for 3 hours straight.  Many intelligent questions were asked on the part of the dog owners who attended.  It was really neat that some of the attendees had dogs that they had adopted from the S. Ocean Shelter.   After answering questions, I gave a training session to Blizzard a wonderful blue Pit Bull.  Blizzard loves to learn and he is getting good at his hand signals and his waits and stays.  His come has improved immensely, but needs more work."

So keep on blogging...Your community appreciates it!

Hi Laura, read my post about "are you being stalked on Active Rain". You just never know who's looking at you. Or reading what you ahve to say. Good post.

This little Active Rain thing is far reaching and we just don't know who we inspire, who we help and who we make mad!

Laura, You are so right! I get comments from folks that are not AR members...

The best response I've received is several phone calls from contractors that want to know more about our oil boom that they read about in my posts. (I've yet to have a single one keep their word and work with me yet but it could happen).

Laura, that comment was worth all your blogging!  It is nice to be appreciated and your post sent out the word and it hit the right person.  Although new to blogging and AR and I seeing how it works and am waiting for those "out of AR calls & comments".  For now, I am loving the positive comments and encouragement I receive from AR members.  It keeps the old blog wheel turning.

Michael-But comments from AR members are appreciated too!  Thanks.

Bob-PMA, positive mental attitude, it WILL happen!

Barbara-You're doing so much, you won't be able to say 'new to blogging' much longer!

Laura - How wonderful to receive such a comment! Good Job!  I received a phone call from the local news channel one day.  They were doing a story about Fort Macon and when they searched google...They found my blog!  The reporter was thrilled about a local REALTOR promoting the area...You may just be on the news one day!  Your community definitely notices....
