We've arrived! Twenty-one days of commenting (hopefully) five times a day on kid lit blogs! Reading blogs with the intent to join the conversation! Seeing more people coming to our blogs! And realizing that we really are part of a larger community!
Congratulations to Pen and Ink who won our random drawing from last week's check-in!
How did I do with the challenge? Why, thanks for asking!
I clocked in yesterday with 116 comments. So that's more than five a day. (Just over five and a half comments a day - though the half is a good reminder that this isn't a precise science, some days you'll comment more, and some less, but it's all good.) I'm glad I was able to achieve the goal. And yet, even more than the number of comments I made, it was the fact that being part of the challenge re-energized both my commenting and my efforts to read outside of my "usual suspects" that made me feel that
it was a success for me.
To honor the successful conclusion of this year's challenge, I've re-made the graphic to include the 100+ blogs that participated. All together it's 131 blog mastheads. See if you can find yours!
Please click on over to MotherReader's to do your final check-in and let us know
How did it go for you?
That way you'll be part of the big finale of comments and you'll be eligible for the prize drawings! (And remember, when you're looking for some active bloggers in our world of kid lit, a great place to start is the 2011 Comment Challenge's sign up post!)
Thank you again for participating and for being part of this wonderful community!
We'll be back again next year with another edition of The Comment Challenge, but we hope these past three weeks have helped you all forge a new habit of commenting and feeling connected. Let's continue that throughout the year ahead!
Namaste, and keep commenting,
