TWQ: First Blog Visitor & Commenter

For this week's TWQ, I'm asking you to remember when you first started your blog...

Do you remember what the first blog that you actually visited was? Who was your first commenter? If you're not sure, say who you think it was.

My answers are:

The first blog I visited, I believe, was 'Darth Vader's Diary'. This led me on to 'Yoda'.

One of the first commenters I had was Ciera. She is still going strong today, and we are good friends.

Now it's over to you...

The first blog I ever visited was "The Rhumba Dervish," written by some of my dancing friends. The first comment (at least, the first one I archived) was from "Mr Thorne," who has never commented since.

I think the first one I visted was Yoda's blog.

The first commenter was the creator of Lasar Force. The second was you, Captain.

Well, the first blog I ever, ever visited was that of someone at work and I couldn't work it out at all - didn't understand comments. She made me start one myself but as I didn't have a digital camera or any other useful gizmos, it didn't go anywhere ....

Then I read Petite Anglaise - just for curiousity - and thought OK, I'll try this.

I think my first commenter was my mother - only you're not allowed to know that!

The first blog I remember reading was written by a woman in upstate NY, and it has been deleted, and I can't remember the name.

My first commenters came weeks into the blog, but Carmi was the first I remember.

OOps, MIchele sent me.

Good morning - Michele sent me to say - that the first blog I visited was Cabin Cove - Dave is a knitter/quilter friend of mine. He was also the first person to comment on my blog...

It must have been Suzys blog, she's a friend in "real life" too. I'd never heard of blogs before that.

She has sorted out all my sites and blog.

As well as Suzy being one of my first commenters, I think you have been one of the most faithful and longest commenter.

thank you

my son, Oren started a blog, while in college, to comment I needed to sign up forsomething with blogger, and It just tsarted from there, he may have commented first, but my most frequent commenter and steady blog friend is Jayleigh, the fabulous red head from the mid west.

I don't remember the first blog I visited, but I think the first commenter on mine was my friend, Mel.

Mine had to be a friend Lindsay's. She has since moved to LJ where I keep another blog :)

How fascinating that we always seem to remember those first we visited and who came to us!

I don't have any idea as to the first blog I visited, but I remember seeing blogs from googles about stuff and that's where I got the idea to start writing--back in 2004. I looked up my first comment and it's from someone no longer blogging (at least under that name). Michele says hi!

Novy said...

The first blog I visited was Fluke and he was my first visitor

Good questions.

The first blog I visited, via a google search, was one called Bittersweet Life. The proprietor posed a question for answer on readers' blogs, "What makes a good literature reader?" I took the challenge (almost three years ago, now) and I was off.

My first comment came from the proprietor followed by one of his readers.

Cheers.

The very first blog I visited was my brothers (who is an artist and uses it to display his work), but that doesn't count cause he's family. So the real first blog was Sci Fi and Fantasy Loving Blog.

And it was SQT who put a first comment.

was the first blog I ever read and visited.
Miol was also the very first person who left a comment on my first blog.

Jean-Luc Picard said...

Great stories on how you all started. Well done.

Michael Manning said...

Well, that's a good question. Deni Bonet ("Last Girl on Earth") must receive credit for my opening a Blog Page. Michele Agnew and Golfwidow and Bud Buckley were my first blog friends. But I cannot recall. Oh, wait! That sounded like a politician, didn't it? No, I can assure you it's not "selective memory". I'll have to think about it more. A good question.

panthergirl said...

Oddly enough, Michele's was the first blog I visited! I started mine and joined Blog Explosion, and the first blog I "surfed" was hers.

panthergirl said...

... oh and Last Girl on Earth and Golfwidow were amongst the first ones as well, just like Michael Manning says.

I remember Deni's (LGoE) when it was PINK!
