2011 Comment Challenge Wrap-Up

So, one of my goals this year was to comment more on blogs. I do check my reader regularly, I just don't always get around to commenting on their actual blog. So, thank you to MotherReader for hosting this awesome challenge. And look at that awesome button, which contains the headers from all 131 of the participating blogs.

The goal was to comment on five blogs every day for 21 days, giving you a day off if need be. So the goal was 100 comments.

How did I do?

  • I had a total of 118 comments during this time period!
  • I didn't comment every day, but made up for it on other days.
  • I've been making sure to go through my reader and then actually click on a few and comment.
  • I'm feeling a bit better about blogging now that I'm leaving more and more comments. Hopefully I can keep this up all year!
This runs in January every year, so I hope you will join in next time if you didn't this time around. If you did participate, how did you do?

  1. Excellent Kristen! You inspire me to do the same. I have been blogging for the past year because my publisher and agent sorta said I had to - but then I fell-in-love with it. Now my next task is to comment more on other blogs! Thanks for sharing!

  2. so i didn't do the challenge, but i have been making an effort to click out of my google reader to leave comments on blogs. i know how much i lurve getting comments, so i'm trying to share that with other bloggers!

    excellent job meeting your challenge, btw. :)

  3. Awesome!

    Personally, I don't think I could commit to such a challenge, since sometimes the blogs I read don't end up saying anything that I can think of a comment for. But I always try to comment when I can, even if it's just to say, "I enjoyed that book too."

  4. what a good idea ,I tend to comment a lot anyway but will try to more ,all the best stu

  5. Kind of sad, I didn't realize this was going on. :\


Leave some love!
