One Comment at a Time (a challenge)

Ok, so I have been doing some thinking and pondering....
It seems that practically every single blogger I have come across loves comments.
Am I right?
I mean, it makes you feel like your post is so much more important
when someone comments on it.
I know it makes me feel good when people comment on my posts.
The Golden Rule is "Do unto others as you would have them do to you."
It applies to something as tiny as commenting on other bloggers posts.
I am not one to comment on many posts.
Usually it is because I am busy and there is something else I am needing to do.
(sound familiar?)
But I got to thinking how important a single, simple, little comment could be.
It could improve a persons mood.
It could make a person laugh for the first time that day.
It could change a persons mind.
It could totally change a persons day.
And most importantly, it could show the person the love of God.
So here is a challenge.
Leave a comment on every single post you read in the month of February.
It is so simple, yet it could make a great impact.
It could be something as simple as,
"That skirt is so cute!"
"That pic is so good. You're a great photographer!"
"That looks like a lot of fun."
"Very good post!"
This month show the love of God in the world of Blogger....
One Comment at a Time.
If you like, there is a button I made on my sidebar.
Feel free to take it and post it on your blog.
Why, you could even make a post about it!
But, please, give me credit.
Because, believe it of is my idea.
Happy commenting!

Yikes, this is harder then I thought! It just took me twice as long to get through my blog roll then it usually does! But I will keep on keeping on! =)

*Ashley* said...

katysue- i know! same here! but in a way, it is kind of fun! but going out of your way to do something nice does take extra time out of your day doesnt it? :)

Haylee said...

How sweet are you to think of a challenge like this. I'll definitely be participating (All though I'm 16 days late.. but half the month is better than nothing I guess! :)
