Comment 4 Comment

Being a successful blogger may mean different things to different people. But we all have to agree that getting a comment or a share on our blog definitely makes us a happy blogger. Even after a year of blogging on Elgee Writes I still love waking up to new comments on my posts.

Stop shouting into the void!

Blog engagement is crucial to making us motivated to keep blogging. It is that kind of validation we all love from our peers. Otherwise I might be just shouting at the void, right? 

Well, we all need a community.

Last year I joined the 365 days commenting hosted by Read Write Love 28 and failed at it miserably. Obviously it was too much for me and I dropped out fairly early of the game. Apparently I need some encouragement and a lot of support to get to doing what I am supposed to do anyway. 

Bloggers comment junction

So I asked for help from my dear bloggers in forming a community to continue visiting and commenting in each other’s blog. I was not surprised at the turnout because who would not want to make a new blogger friend right? You can still sign up for the bloggers comment junction here.

Comment 4 Comment Challenge

In the spirit of new year, why don’t give it a new start? 

Welcome to the new and upgraded Comment 4 comment blog challenge 2019.

Blogging is a social activity. Blog engagement requires both giving and receiving. If that sounds interesting to you, this challenge is for you. 

The challenge is to ‘leave no comment un-replied and un-returned’.

The challenge is two pronged:

Replying to a comment you received on your blog
And then
Visiting their blog to leave a comment

  1. What a terrific idea for a challenge, Elgee. I stumbled across this post through Pinterest, and I’m glad that I did. I’ve blogged under a different name in the past, and I always tried to reply to all comments, though once I had to shut down a “discussion” that turned into an attack on one commenter from another. (I banned the attacker from my site.) Sigh.

    Anyway, I recently started a new book review blog under my new pen name and though it’s hard to start over from scratch with no online friends, etc., I look forward to engaging with new folks through comments on my site, their sites, and elsewhere.

  2. This is clever! I love this idea more than the x blog comment challenge! I lost count after about a hundred, and I found it made me see commenting blogs as a means to an end, rather than attempting to form relationships.

    I’m hoping to get back on comments this year despite my failing at them the previous three years (oops!), so I’m joining this with the hopes that it’ll hold me at least somewhat accountable!

    …plus, I love receiving comments, and the best way to get on that is to leave comments myself! I also much prefer commenting people who are more likely to return the comment on my own blog, but it’s hard to find those bloggers as the numbers have dwindled long before I dropped the ball on commenting.

  3. Hello! This challenge sounds so fantastic! Replying to comments and visiting back is one of my goals so I LOVE this idea! I signed up right away! Thank you so much for hosting this and I can’t wait to find more bloggers!

  4. I am not officially signing up for this challenge, but I did give it a shoutout in my Bookish Resolutions blog post because it does mesh with one of my main blogging goals for the year, a goal that I’d been thinking about before I even found this challenge.

    Wishing y’all the best of luck with the challenge in the new year though.

  5. Hallo, Hallo Gayathri!

    I am so thankful I saw some blog coverage about this comment challenge – like you, I had an #epicfail at the other challenge last year – ironically or not, I also noticed the participants of that challenged stopped visiting me after January ’18, so I was not the only person dropping out of it. I did however, start to resume visiting blogs + actively trying to be more proactive to comment on the blogs I follow and regularly read. In effect, I achieved a bit of what I set out to do but not the overall goal.

    I am looking forward to this! Thanks for hosting!

  6. I can’t wait to take part in this! I’m starting my blog in the New Year and this seems like a fantastic way to get involved in the community while I’m finding my feet. What a fab idea, thanks for coming up with it 🙂

  7. Such a great idea!
    I wish I could join but I already know that I’ll fail… I always answer the comments on my blog but going back to their blog’s… sadly I won’t have that time 🙁

    But good luck!

  8. My main obstacles are time and sloth. I wouldn’t have time to read if I were spending it all online, plus, I am extremely lazy 😉
