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) and there’s space at the end of each Saturday Summary to add links to the posts you’ve especially loved.
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 :)
I LOVE this idea! I will definitely be joining you x
Totally up for this :) Good shout, Hayley!
What a great idea!
I’ve just finished rosalilium’s ‘blog every day in May’ challenge so I’ll now I’ll move on to the June Comments challenge and give it my best shot! :-) x
Awesome! Good luck – looking forward to your posts about the blogs you’ve found!
I found this challenge through Louisa who commented above, and I’m absolutely joining! What a lovely idea!
Hooray! Please share any awesome posts with us – we love new blogs :)
I definitely will be taking part in the Challenge? does this comment count! I will also try and get the button on my blog.
Yay! All comments count – it’s about you talking to new people and finding new blogs :) If you need any help with the button, just ask :)
Great idea, I’m going to try to support this x
What a fab idea !!! I’m in !! Xx
This is a great way to find new blogs! Will try to take part and catch up a weeks worth of comments!
Thanks for organising it :)
Love this idea as it is definitely the commenting and social side of blogging that I love the most.
I love it too, but I’m pretty useless at it! Glad other people like it too :)

I have just heard about this and will be joining in immediately! Great idea x
So happy to see you joining! (Also, I didn’t realise there were bakeries making doggy birthday cakes – will have to get one in September for my doglet!) (edit: I didn’t realise it was YOU making the cakes! Even better!)
Brilliant idea! Absolutely loooove it. I will definitely be joining in. And grabbing your button too.
Hooray! Anything to spread a bit of bloggy love about is good, right?
Good plan, I’m always too busy scrolling and reading and forget to comment on blogs so I’m going to get involved!
I might be a little late in taking part in this challenge, but it is such a brilliant idea and I cannot pass up doing this all through the rest of August!

Of course! There will be another commenting challenge in December, but I think it’s nice to leave as many comments as you can whenever :)
