What is the one thing that so many bloggers struggle with? Feel all the guilt about? Yep it’s commenting. I feel this and I KNOW I’m not alone in this. But I’m not just here to moan about that, nope. I’m here to tell you that there is a Comment Challenge to help us up our commenting game as hosted by Lonna @ FLYLēF and Alicia @ A Kernel of Nonsense.
Why should you take part in the Comment Challenge?
I believe in the value of comments so much so that I included a special blog post all about the value of comments in my A-Z of Handy Tips for Book Bloggers. What encourages me and inspires me is when someone engages with my content or mentions something they like.
But just because I believe in it, doesn’t mean I always find the time to follow through. A few years I set up an experiment to help spread some blogging feel-good-feels all across the book blogosphere and it generated so much goodwill and positivity that I loved it.
Comments are the life blood of your blog. They give you energy and reaffirm that you are not talking into a void.
So when I heard about this commenting challenge (from Rita @ View From My Books) which is being organised by Alicia @ A Kernel of Nonsense, it just appealed to me straight away. You get matched with another blogger and you show them all the love. I love the way this spreads positivity throughout our community and I didn’t think twice before signing the dotted line (sounds so much more dramatic than adding your link!).
And when I’m in then I’m IN!
I have an obliger personality so when I say I’m in, then I’m in with all my heart. So I hope my blog partner is ready as I’ll be firing comments non stop at them all month!
