I Believe that learning can happen through interaction & if we talk about TFL – this could be done in the comments. This is why every comment on this blog receives a reply from me. (may be sometime bit late) But unfortunately, I have observed that most of the times when a comment is posted asking a question or raising an observation and a reply is made, the person who posted the comment in the first place never follow up. This shows that that person never really posted the question expecting a reply or there can be one more reason “People don’t look for advice… they only search for someone to agree with them” If your views are same as above quote then you are at wrong place.
I hope you will start adding more comments & queries now – I promise from now onwards you will get a reply (either by me or some other reader who understand particular thing) in maximum 2 days.
Let’s talk about Monthly Contest:
Hope you have seen new top commentator list in left hand bar – this will have top 7 commentators from last 1 month. Out of these there will be 2 winners.
Top Commentator: This prize is not going to a person who will add most comments in a month. Then?? There will be a random selection from top 7 commentators using RANDOM .org – only benefit to the top 3 commentators will be that they will have 2 entries for their name. To give everyone an equal chance – winner of this prize will skip next 2 months entries. E.g. If X wins this prize in July – his name will not be considered in August & September but he still have chance to win best commentator award.
Best Commentator: Person who will add most value to the discussions or topics. Winner in this case will be judged by me but he should be part of top 7 commentators in that month.
Please note that for “value addition” my choice will be based on:
1. A clear indication that the commenter has read the post. This will show from his comment or relevant query.
2. Valuable inputs that build on the post’s subject matter. If you have some good ideas based on the post subject matter and you’re sure this will help others you can use this to increase your chance.
3. Level of interaction with other readers – solving their queries or supporting their views.
What will be the prize?
Don’t expect any ipod or t-shirt from this contest. Winner will get 1 book related to personal finance/investment planning/financial planning or Finametrica Risk Profiling. Hope these books or risk profiling will help you to increase your chance to win the bigger game – your money game.
Winners will be announced on 1st of every month on this post, so be sure to check back. But I believe everyone is going to be winner by commenting – either you will win blessings by helping others or win knowledge by asking questions or discussions.
Only 1 Rule
Leave a RELEVANT COMMENT: Stay on topic and offer value. NO SPAMMY COMMENTS like “nice post”, “thanks for sharing” or similar comments – such comments are only relevant when they are combined with more valuable content.
HAPPY COMMENTING and good luck! I’m looking forward to getting to know each of you.Note: You’re allowed to comment on ANY post within the blog, not just the new ones. So check achieves.
