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 not.....it 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? :)
