Summer 2016 Comment Challenge: August Sign-up

Summer 2016 Comment Challenge!

Whether you’re a new blogger or a seasoned vet, blog comments are one of the most rewarding aspects of blogging. As a way to connect with new bloggers and challenge ourselves to spread the comment love, Lonna @ FLYLēF and Alicia @ A Kernel of Nonsense created the Comment Challenge. Each month over the summer, bloggers are paired together and encouraged to comment on each other’s blogs. August marks the final month of this challenge and if you haven’t joined or if you’ve been with us since the beginning, we’d love to have you take part. All the info you need is below and do not hesitate to ask us any questions you may have.

The Details
  • 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.
