Committing to Commenting + Linkup

The past few months I have barely commented on any blogs, and I have noticed I haven't gotten as many comments on mine either. I know personally I have barely found time to blog, let alone find time to leave meaningful comments on others blogs. Also, personally I would rather get no comments then a comment like "Nice post. Checkout my blog." *insert link here* So if I don't have time to leave a meaningful comment, I am not going to leave any at all.



Since I have the week off this week, and I am not super busy, I decided I would challenge myself to comment on more blogs. Say 10 different blogs every day for 7 days. Simple enough right? I know how excited I get when I get a comment on my blog, so if I can spread that excitement to 70 other people it will be awesome!

I also decided this post would be a good post to host my first linkup! I invite you to leave your links if you are going to participate in this challenge too! Just challenge yourself to comment on even 4 or 5 blogs everyday if you don't want to do too many! Then join the linkup so others can come visit and maybe even comment on yours! It is a great way to find new blogs to connect with! 


This is just one of the ways I am giving back this season! I invite you to join me in Committing to Commenting. Just leave me a comment telling me what you have committed to for this week or sometime soon so I can hear others goals! I love knowing that other people have gotten involved!
xo, Scarlett

  3. Such a great idea Scarlett! I always try to leave comments on the posts I read, but sometimes you just don't have the time! This sounds like such a bad excuse because it only takes a minute!

  4. Hi Scarlett! I was actually thinking of doing the same thing! Commenting on other blogs is a great way to network and meet other bloggers with the same interest!

  5. This is a great idea. I always try to comment back when I receive comments on blog posts. I know it means a lot to the blogger to receive input from their content.

    I whole heartedly agree with this post. I'd rather have ZERO comments than receive a brain dead comment. This is a fab idea, I've totes just joined! x

  14. This is a really lovely idea! I feel exactly the same. So many commenters just want to post a link to their own blog and don't read the post! Boo hiss! I admire what you are doing! I love to comment on other people's blogs as it means so much to me when readers comment on mine! xxx

  15. I send you a virtual high five! I've been in the process of moving across continents and just haven't been commenting very much and of course my comments have dropped dramatically..... Thanks for the link up!!!

  30. Thank you! I am glad other bloggers feel the same way I do. You can't establish a good relationship when only one blogger is commenting! xo

  33. Commenting is very important for me especially because I want to be connected to everything that's going on! It has been a habit for me for so long that right now I feel bad without commenting! I love your attitude in this subject, keep it up because only informative comments can help make a difference <3

  34. I tend not to comment with my blog link, so my comments seem genuine and not like I'm begging for a new follower. I'm going to try and comment on every post I enjoy - as sometimes I forget to :) xo

  36. I LOVE this idea! I prefer not to leave my link places ... but then, it depends on if people can get there when they click on my name or not.

  37. Love this idea, I am committing to not only commenting, but also to posting regularly for the next month (I had a couple shaky weeks!) Have to give people something to actually comment on, right? :)

  38. I'm in. I've already commenting other blog last weeks.This is a very fun and new things that I never did, read a lot of blogs and leave comments on their blogs. I get so much inspiration from this project .

  39. Great idea! I actually just decided to do this tonight about an hour or two before I saw your blog about it! How ironic. Love your blog anyway, I just started mine a few days ago and am looking at how more experienced bloggers do things haha. Have to learn from the best! Any feedback would be appreciated, and I hope you have a great day!(:

    Ciao,
