Comment Challenge--Summer, 2016
I feel like May and June got really busy and I've not had time to spend on blogging, commenting, or even reading. This is frustrating for me! So when I heard about the Summer 2016 Comment Challenge, while reading a post on The Literary Feline, I figured it would be a great way to pull myself back into a better pattern of interaction.
Basically, each month this summer, the fine people at FLYLéF and A Kernel of Nonsense are organizing pairs of bloggers who commit to commenting a certain number of times on each other's blogs during that month. Simple enough, right? Sadly, I am so disorganized that not only did I miss June, but I'm getting this post up too late to advertise the challenge for July, since the sign-ups are already over. HOWEVER, if you're interested, you can still sign up for August!
They have 5-10 and 11-20 ranges, so you can commit as much or as little time as you have. Being a bit nervous my first time out, I've signed up for 5-10 comments. The purpose here is not to artificially pump up your commenting stats, but to really dive into someone else's blog and build a relationship with that person, so I'm excited to see who I'm paired with.
The August sign-ups open on July 1, so if you're interested, be sure to stop by one of the hosting blogs and get ready to participate!
