The least-known international holiday coming up this week: International Comment Week. This is a time where you make the extra effort to leave a comment on the blogs you visit.
I would love that–share your thoughts about any of the topics I post on this week. I’ll do the same on your blog. Or, just say hi. In this way, we’ll grow our community.

Sincere thank you for an amazing blog and a web site that is a plethora of resources.
Thanks, Derek, and I appreciate you ‘unmasking’ for the day. Have a productive, child-centered time today!
Hi Jacqui – you offer so much here … help and offer of help to find answers to various challenges. as Derek says – a plethora of resources … cheers Hilary
Thank you, Hilary! It is so good to hear that you find them helpful.
Love the sentiment, Jacqui. My view is that we need to interact and learn from those on a global scale if we’re ever going to lessen prejudice and discrimination. This is Pete if WordPress decides to label me as “anonymous.” That seems to be a bug going around right now.
Thank you for the name, Pete. I did notice all the comments came through as ‘anonymous’. This is a self-hosted site, but not sure if that matters. Good comment. I learn so much talking to folks around the world. It reminds me I live in my American bubble that is unlike other parts of the world.
Both of your blogs are very interesting. Teaching is an extremely important profession. I sometimes wish I had spent at least part of my career as a teacher (I’m an engineer). It’s the first time I hear of International Comment Day. That’s also a good time to test whether the comment section works. Last time I tried it didn’t.
I did have a lot of trouble with my comment section a few years ago. Today, oddly, it only is allowing ‘anonymous’. That’s a first! Thanks for persevering! As a tech teacher, I’ve learned to roll with whatever problems come up, to show my students how to work through. They really almost don’t bother me anymore.
The previous comment was mine. The comment section does not work as it should. I was commenting as “thomasstigwikman” the Leonberger guy. However, it says “Anonymous” and the photo is missing too. I know wordpress have been updating templates lately. I think something broke. As for me I restarted the computer, logged out and back into wordpress.com. It’s still “Anonymous”.
Oooh, I’m so glad you told me it’s you, Thomas, and Bronco I assume. It could be a browser issue (as in, change browsers), but this really is a first. Chrome has been giving me a lot of problems lately.
Hug Bronco for me!
My third comment: I have commenting issues on two blogs, this one and one more. On all other blogs my comments come through with my moniker without problems. I recently had an issue with line breaks in the notification emails and I contacted the help desk at wordpress.com. They identified the problems as a bug introduced in the template I am using. They were updating/improving templates. Perhaps it is a similar story?
I’ll check. Darn! Thanks for persevering. I have one friend I have to log out of WordPress and log in with my email to get the comments to work. Don’t get it.
I love your post, I usually don’t make any comments but after reading this it makes my heart to leave a comment just to let you know that a newbie blogger is also from your audience. Here’s my blog manandtech.com if you wanna visit it’ll be a pleasure for me.
Thanks, Farhan. It’s nice to see the Anonymous bug was fixed. I will definitely stop by for a visit with you.
