Summer Comment Challenge-August 2016

8:17 PM

The Comment Challenge

What: A way to connect with other bloggers and challenge yourself to comment on other people's blogs.
Who: This was created by Lonna @FLYLēF and Alicia @A Kernel of Nonsense but anyone is encouraged to sign up and participate!
When: Every month during the summer. August is the last month (and my first time participating) so be sure to sign up soon!
Why: Reading people's comments on my blog and interacting with other bloggers is one of my favorite parts of blogging. Why not spread the joy?
How: Once you sign up, you will be paired with another blogger and be encouraged to comment on each other's blog posts.

The Nuts and Bolts

  • This is the final month to sign up for this challenge for the summer.
  • Bloggers will be paired up and are required to comment on each other’s blog posts.
  • To allow a bit of freedom, you will be able to choose how often you would like to comment on your partner’s blog (options include 5-10 or 11-20 posts).
  • Social Media Option: If you’d like to give your partner further encouragement through social media, we will do our best to connect you with bloggers who are active on the same platforms.

  • Giveaway: at the end of August, we will be giving away two bookish prizes. Please note: this giveaway will only be open to participants

  • Sign Up: Starting today through the 21st, you can sign up for this challenge for August. Just answer a few questions on the Google Doc on one of the hosts' blogs. We will be emailing you a couple of days before August 1st to inform you of your partner.

    • Create a Sign-up Post: We will be posting a link-up on the 15th for participants to share their posts. What you should include:
    • Announce your intention to participate and what you’re looking forward to for this challenge
    • Let us know how often you intend to comment on your partner’s blog
    • Tell us if you participated in June or July and what your experience was like
    • Link back to your hosts: Lonna @ FLYLēF and Alicia @ A Kernel of Nonsense
    • Include the Comment Challenge banner
    • Spread the Word: We’d love to see this challenge take off, so let other bloggers know about it. We’ll be using the Twitter hashtag #commentchallenge2016
    • Comment: When August 1st rolls around, get to commenting on your partner’s blog!

      1. Hi Lonna! Thanks for setting up the comment challenge. I'm excited to participate. I'm not much of a coffee drinker (I really only like the sugary drinks where you can barely taste the coffee in them), so hot chocolate is my go to hot beverage. I have a bit of a sweet tooth:)

    2. I'm so glad you decided to join us for this challenge. Hopefully this won't be the last time you participate. I hope you have a wonderful time commenting on your partner's blog this August!
