    Note the syntax of this link
    http://en.wordpress.com/tag/reputation/

    Note how changing the last word ie. the “keyword”provides different results on a different WordPress.com Topics (Tags/Categories) page http://en.wordpress.com/tag/elephants

    If the “keyword” is a phrase you insert a dash between words like this
    http://en.wordpress.com/tag/zero-to-hero/

    Granted you can got directly to Tags in your Dashbaord http://en.wordpress.com/tags/ and enter one on that same page in the far right hand column if it’s not a keyword in the Tag cloud at
    Tags Explore + but then you wouldn’t know how the links work.

    I know the the syntax of the links and I operate directly from my browser.

    Thanks for that, I’ll keep a note of it. Now hopefully, time for some commenting for Task 17.

    Love this task – I took today’s Daily Post prompt (first person you see in the morning) and clicked on some of the pingbacks in the list for the prompt to read and comment on.

    I selected pingbacks toward the end of the list, because it seems like those at the top may be more often clicked on.

    Speaking of the pingback list, I think it’s always interesting to see which topics seem to attract a LOT of pingbacks and which only a few. Sometimes it’s fun to write a post for a topic with only a few pingbacks listed, something more off the beaten path.

    Good task!

    Sorry I’m late today, long day at work. I made it in time and got to enjoy a few different posts and I posted on two that I found interesting. I really enjoyed this assignment and I’m excited to see tomorrows topic.

    The days I work, I get so excited to come home, just to see what the new topic of the day is. This brings a lot of joy to my day and I love learning new things on here each day. Thank you again for helping us all out. This is a great experience for me. :)

    Another day in the books. Enjoying reading and tweaking. Off to do some more.

    @macmsue, you can also find people who replied to the prompt by going back to the prompt post on The Daily Post. If you scroll down, you’ll see a list of all the pingbacks from people who responded and linked to the prompt.

    @tjbarkerseattle and @kumbricia, glad you’re continuing to enjoy yourselves!

    I must say I found some lovely people to follow… because I really needed more people to follow (insert sarcasm here).

    I’ve enjoyed this task but it has lead to a bit too much reading around and a bit of a late night last night when I really need more sleep! Plus I’m following several more people now. :)

    It has been great to read the posts of unknown writers, and to engage with them; I have discovered some new, and very talented, bloggers this way.
    I am really enjoying Zero to Hero: it has already taught me a great deal about the more technical side of blogging – a weakness of mine, I confess – and I am now able to create a more personal look to my blog.
    Thank you!

    This was a fun challenge! Commented on several new blogs and connected with several new bloggers. Very time consuming but worth every minute.

    #1609060

    Glad to hear y’all are making some good connections! It *is* a bit time consuming, but engaging with others is a great (and really important) blogging habit to cultivate.

    I see that today’s instruction is to join one of the online groups, Facebook, twitter etc. Count me out. I’ve no wish to have a facebook page I find taking part in 4 widely different online forums, writing my blog and reading other peoples’ blogs and commenting on them more than sufficient. I know some people like it, but to me twitter is for twits. I’ve heard it described as standing in the middle of a pub and shouting your opinions to all and sundry. I’ve read too many stories about people writing a tweet that was meant for a few close friends and because they pressed a wrong key it was broadcast to the whole world. There are also tales of tweets that “went viral” . Anyway what can you say that is worth saying in the limited number of characters twitter allows ? No thanks.

    Don’t know how my post has appeared twice. My apologies.
    But it does underline the point I made about pressing a wrong key!

    . Count me out. I’ve no wish to have a facebook page I find taking part in 4 widely different online forums, writing my blog and reading other peoples’ blogs and commenting on them more than sufficient.

    I’m with you on that and I’m LOL :D because Twitter is the only social network I use. And, I have the audacity to use it exactly the way I want to use it ie. to tweet links to posts of my own and my followers posts for promotional purposes. I do not socialize on Twitter as recommended by all the experts, who are flogging their goods and services behind the veil of sharing what they ate today or comments about the weather or posting images of their kids, cats and dogs. Even if if I had the time to “share” the likelihood I would anything at all personal online there or on my blogs is next to zero. Why? Because I have real life close friends I share with face-to-face. So don’t feel pressured into marching to the beat of the blosgophere drums. Set your own tune by beating your own drum.

    Didn’t write the post on the daily promt. I have written a post one day later intstead: http://mamarazzablog.wordpress.com/2014/01/19/musical-hell-and-heaven/
    It’s about music and emotions it can cause. I also used a quotation as it was asked in the task.
