I wanted to do this brief note too but maybe a day or two later so it remains in our minds but as someone has raised this point I should write about it. 🙂
First off, everyone here(I believe) has better manners and etiquettes than I do( was it ‘me’ here or ‘I do?’). I am not trying to be patronizing. You all know what I am going to say. And these are the basics 🙂
Blogging 101 commons is a space dedicated for giving feedback. Please don’t do self-promotion there. Promoting Blogger’s World also comes under self-promotion. Also: please don’t chat too much–stay on topic and stay relevant. Even if you see familiar faces, switch gears from informal to formal. 🙂
Truth be told: I have seen too many people promoting too many links on commons and yet they were not rebuked but I have been rebuked many times in many courses even when I was trying to help. Am I trying to say they were unfair to me? No, I am saying that my presence is recognized very soon since I spend a lot of time there–therefore anything slightly off-the-track by me is subject to warning and chiding.
Since so many of us will join together and interact there as well: our concord and fraternity will be obvious to everyone. Since we are not working for a sinister purpose, please let not anyone say anything to us which hurts 🙂
If instead of being able to help others we are reprimanded and it turns bitter: the whole purpose is defeated. 🙂
If some people over there suggest about creating a new group like commons: let them do it. We shall be more than happy to support such a group. Just suggesting name of this group as an idea shouldn’t be a problem normally(especially towards the end of the course when people do need a place like commons, I have done that before.) It’s just a blog and I don’t see how it’s any different to drop a link for it from dropping a link to your personal blogs.
Will we have fun despite so much heavy thinking?
Yes definitely. We have plenty to talk about even when we are formal. Seeing friends always cheers us up and helping is always good provided you don’t need anything in return. 🙂
Please let me know if anyone has any suggestions or ideas regarding this 🙂
Love and light ❤
