The 2014 Comments Challenge!
Earlier this month, we spoke about rebuilding the blogging communities and one of the things that many people related to was the drop in comments.
Everyone loves getting comments, right? But if you’re like us, it’s difficult sometimes to leave comments on every post you read and you end up leaving none at all (boo!)
So, we’re setting you a challenge (that we’re going to do ourselves!) In June, we dare you to leave at least 5 comments on other blogs each day (or 35 comments a week if you don’t catch up with blogs daily). It shouldn’t take you too much extra time in your normal reading time, but leaving five little notes on those blogs will make someone smile, and isn’t that an awesome thing to do?
Maybe you already leave loads of comments on your favourite blogs (High five!) Well, we’d like to challenge you as well. Can you leave at least one comment a day on a brand new-to-you blog? If you’re a blogger, it’s so exciting when someone you don’t know leaves a really lovely comment – and who knows, maybe you’ll end up finding a new favourite blog, or even a new friend!
Keep us updated with your progress – we’ll be catching up with you each Saturday in our Saturday Summary posts (which is another awesome way to find lovely new blogs)
If you would like to share this on your own blog – firstly, thank you! – then we’ve made this little button for you to post in your side bar to link back here and tell people what you’re doing.
(Click inside the box and select all to get the HTML for this button.
If you’re a WordPress user, then from the Dashboard, click on Appearance then Widgets. Drag the HTML item to your sidebar, paste the HTML in and click save.)
Get commenting! Ooh, and if you’re reading this after the 1st June – it’s not too late! We’d love you to join in at any time :)
