Don't you agree that receiving comments from your crusade posts really makes the effort worthwhile? We have a great team of players who share their interpretations of the challenge but then spend alot of time tracking the other crusaders to leave kind words of encouragement. It's nice to know there is a community of fellow artists who are trying out the same things you are which makes their comments an even more important part of the process. It's the next best thing to gathering around a table and working together.
I love hearing that many friendships have been formed through this platform. That only happens when we reach out with our words. There are several crusaders who are vigilant and constant with their support. There are some who comment even when they don't participate. Let's give a shout out to our favorite commenters!
In the comment section below, nominate a crusader who you think deserves the title Best Commenter. You can give a reason why you are shining the light on them or just get their name out there. As you reflect on comments received on your own site, give a thought to how much you appreciate getting them, and never forget to be a good commenter yourself. It isn't about being eloquent, or articulate, or funny - althought all that is great, it's about waving your hand and saying "I was here, you did a good job". In general, I think leaving comments has become a lost art, so to speak. I notice everywhere that comments are less. I consider that missed opportunities. Connections are not made. Commenting is to be applauded!
In a week a will print up the nominations and votes, and we will have another random drawing, a Top Hat Pick. Each time I see a nominated name I will add a slip into the hat. Once a Crusader is nominated you can add your vote and I will add another slip into the hat. The more votes a crusader gets the more chances they have to win.
Let's celebrate this vital part of our crusading process! VOTE!
