The Comments Challenge!

This post was published 6 years ago. Some things may have changed since then - use the search function to see if anything has been posted since then, or reach out to us on Twitter if you'd like to see a more updated post!

Everyone loves getting comments, right? But if you’re like us, it’s difficult sometimes to leave comments on every post you read and you end up leaving none at all (boo!)

So, we’re setting you a challenge (that we’re going to do ourselves!) In June, we dare you to leave at least 5 comments on other blogs each day (or 35 comments a week if you don’t catch up with blogs daily). It shouldn’t take you too much extra time in your normal reading time, but leaving five little notes on those blogs will make someone smile, and isn’t that an awesome thing to do?

Maybe you already leave loads of comments on your favourite blogs (High five!) Well, we’d like to challenge you as well. Can you leave at least one comment a day on a brand new-to-you blog? If you’re a blogger, it’s so exciting when someone you don’t know leaves a really lovely comment – and who knows, maybe you’ll end up finding a new favourite blog, or even a new friend!

Keep us updated with your progress – we’ll be catching up with you each Saturday in our Saturday Summary posts (which is another awesome way to find lovely new blogs) and there’s space at the end of each Saturday Summary to add links to the posts you’ve especially loved.

If you would like to share this on your own blog – firstly, thank you! – then we’ve made this little button for you to post in your side bar to link back here and tell people what you’re doing.

I'm taking part in Bonjour, Blogger!s June Comments Challenge, find out more!
