I think that we have many responsibilities to each other when we blog. First things first, we have to build a relationship based on trust and mutual understanding. If we're going to be learning from each other and talking about certain ideas, we have to know how to communicate with each other. Also, we have to do what our favorite phrase in elementary school was, which was to "play nice". We all know some horrible things are said on the internet, and staying out of this kind of negativity is our responsibility to each other. We also have top make sure what we are saying is easily understandable to others. I'm not going to go around throwing different kinds of jibberish and slang at you, so if you aren't understanding anything, just ask! I think the thing we are most responsible for in communication is feedback and response! No one wants to feel like they're talking to a brick wall, or else they might start thinking about turning themselves into the loony bin. Which we all know is not a good place to be. There's nothing better than having a full on conversation with someone that is filled with insight and well thought out responses. So I tell you, in order to be a responsible communicator, COMMUNICATE!
