I'm taking the comment challenge! Are you game?

In the month of May, I was invited to take a comment challenge hosted by Harriet . Of course, being a competitive mama, I accepted.

The challenge: You have 31 days to make 1,000 comments

I am so very thankful that Harriet took this initiative! I had so much fun making these comments and meeting new bloggers. So, now, I'm
icipating again for the month of June.

'So why
don't you?'

The challenge: You have 30 days to make 1,000 comments

I urge everyone to sign up to participate for the month of June, as well. Just click on the button below to go to
Harriet's blog, copy the code and place it on your side bar, sign up on mister linky, and comment away.

I don't think most bloggers realize the value that commenting brings. Increased traffic to our own blogs aside, commenting also allows for:

  • Meeting new friends
  • Stumbling across old friends
  • Increasing the sense of community
  • Inspiring new blogging topics
  • Making valuable connections
  • Widening our audience
  • Broadening our resourcesl
  • Well, you get the picture. The list goes on and on.

Harriet offers an awesome award to place on your blog, once you have met the challenge. However, the real reward comes simply by meeting new people who will forever affect your life. These new-found friendships will be cherished for years to come.

Thank you, Harriet for inspiring all of us to reach out to our fellow bloggers. You will never know how endearing you have become to us all!

i will try to help you make those 1000 ...good luck...found your blog through simply would be way too much pressure for me to try but sure hope you make it!!!

Rachel June 7, 2009 at 10:46 PM  

I soooo wish I had time to do this! I would love to leave more comments and try really hard to do so for all my followers and those I follow :) I'd join the challenge if I didn't already only get 3.5 hours of sleep a night, ha ha.

And you're right about the benefits of commenting - it's such a great way to connect and learn! Broadens this great big world, at the same time it opens a million windows into others' lives!

Good luck with the challenge!
