Winter 2017 Comment Challenge: March

Hey guys!

As the title suggests, I’m participating in the Winter 2017 Comment Challenge, which is hosted by the lovely Lonna @ FLYLēF and Alicia @ A Kernel of Nonsense.

The Comment Challenge is a way for book bloggers to interact more with each other and for individuals to challenge themselves to engage more in community content. Lonna and Alicia have been kindly partnering bloggers and encouraging them to comment on each other’s blogs throughout January, February and now March too.

I’ve decided to participate in the March challenge because I love commenting on other people’s blogs, and want to try and do so with more regularity. I’ve opted for the 10+ comment challenge, which means I have to comment on my partner’s blog at least ten times during the month. And my partner for the month is the brilliant Alicia @ A Kernel of Nonsense! Commenting begins from March 1st, and I’m excited to get started.

If you’d also like to take part, details on how to do so are below! (All credit to Alicia and Lonna for all the gorgeous banners!)

  1. Wow this seems like a great challenge, and a brilliant way to engage more with the blogging community as well. I hope you have a lot of fun with this Kate, it may be something I look into next month (April, not March) because I love talking to other people on WordPress so anything that helps with that is great in my opinion. 😀

  2. Yes, so happy to be partnered with you this upcoming month! Commenting on other people’s blogs can sometimes be such a struggle, but I really like being partner with another blogger because then it feel like I’m not just writing an obligatory comment, but actually engaging with someone back and forth. Looking forward to March!
