because people speak English
A few years ago, I traveled to England from Canada to do a special presentation about MyEC. I talked to hundreds of teachers about how I blog with English learners on EnglishClub. It was a fantastic experience, and many teachers vowed to get their students blogging when they returned to their own countries.
One thing that teachers were really excited about was a concept that we introduced long ago on MyEC:
No Blog Left Behind
I explained that we (admin, mods, bloggers) do our very best to make sure that there is at least one comment on every MyEC blog post. It takes guts to write (and publish) in a language that is not your native language. I want English bloggers to feel comfortable and supported here on MyEC. Comments (with at least some positive feedback) can really help!
One of the perks of blogging on MyEC rather than other platforms is that you have an instant target audience. MyEC is made up of English language learners and teachers who are all here for a similar reason: to learn, practise, or teach English. Blogging together is a great way to get to know each other. It also allows us to practise learning AND teaching English in an informal way.
Today, I noticed quite a few blog posts with No Comments. Because of this, I would like to ask our long-term members to recommit to our "No Blog Left Behind" policy. I'm also asking newer members to help us keep bloggers engaged!
If you're ever browsing through the Blog Feed, and you see a post that says "No Comments", please take a moment to read the blog post and write a quick response.
Also, if you see the tag "corrections" (meaning a blogger wants to be corrected), and you spot an English error (spelling/usage/formatting), please take a moment to provide an English tip.
Thank you, and keep blogging. I love watching your English improve one blog post at time.
PS - Please do not leave comments for spammers, and do not respond to plagiarized posts. Please report these blogs, so that we can remove them from our feed. Thank you!
