because people speak English
I've spent most of my leisure time here on MyEC since I joined this fantastic community two years ago. I've written dozens of blogs and most of them were featured here.
I still remember how excited when my blog was featured for the first time. The blog Native English Speakers' Blogs was a success and actually became a discussion about native speakers' roles (especially those of native English teachers) in helping learners learn English on MyEC. The blog got 92 comments and was at the top of the blog list for several months. Some of the English teachers here joined in the discussion too, and Josef (the founder of EC) and Tara (the administrator of MyEC) even added comments on it many times. That's why the blog was so successful.
As a volunteer moderator here, I often read and comment on blogs by other members as well as write my own. Members usually expect comments on their blogs. Actually, I even wrote a blog about comments: Are you expecting any comments on your blog? Thankfully, most of the comments have been inspiring and encouraging. A member even coped all the exciting comments and made them a new blog post. Tara, as an English teaher, often adds such comments on learners' blogs. Most of the learners like to read her blogs and comments. She will give some advice or suggestions or make some corretions for learners to improve. You bet members appreciate it so much. More and more members have started to write blogs.
I'm a doctor and now studying in Canada as an academic visitor. Tara even offered to write a letter of reference for me before I came here. So many members encouraged me to face the challenge I might meet when living in an English-speaking country far from mine. Their support helped me to survive the hard first few weeks here and I shared my experience with them by writing blogs. I've tried to send messages to the chief of the department and the secretaries, and they found my writing was good. They may have been curious about where I learned all the writing skills. I bet you know the answer.
