As you get stuck into the Week Four Theme, it is time to announce the winners of week three.
You might have noticed that the winners’ post has come a little later this week. This is because I have started to experiment with the timing of this second post. I wondered if waiting a few days might work better. Not to mention that I have had a few health issues.
As in weeks past, there are three areas to win in:
- Best post (as picked by me)
- Post with the most comments by different people
- Best comment (as picked by me)
The only thing I can say for certain at this stage is that the next time we run one of these, I am going to ask more people to help me pick the winners.
It was very hard to choose a winner. Again.
I wanted to pick several of you as winners. Again.
However, after going back and forth (again) and not being able to make up my mind (again), I chose the Night of Hats article. What particularly impressed me was the fusion of column-writing style with a blog post that starts by hinting that this might all be nonsense and yet keeps a straight face when it presents it. A well-deserved win.
Although I was a bit dubious about the websites reported 40+ comments, this was the blog post with the most comments.
One oft-repeated technique for getting more comments is to end with a question. Think about giving it a try.
Like the posts, the comments are all of a similar standard. It was very hard to pick out a “best comment”. This one made my short list for engaging with the post and showing that the commenter had read it by asking an insightful question.
