    Blog Comment Blitz #4

    Hi all,
    We have begun! Please start making your comments as soon as possible, and be sure to get them all done by the end of this week!


    We haven't done a Comment Blitz for a while, so let's try one for October!

    Who: 15 bloggers. See below for participants.

    What: Commenting at each other's blogs over a one-week period.

    Where: Online. See below for URLs.

    When: October 7th (Sun) through October 13th (Sat).

    Why: To find new readers for our blogs, and to find new blogs for us to read.

    How:
    • Sign up by posting a response in this thread. Include both your blog's name and your blog's URL. We now have 15 blogs signed up, so sign-ups have closed.
    • Start commenting on October 7th at each of the blogs on the list (excluding your own). Leave at least one comment per blog, on any post you like. Comments that are supportive, constructive, and/or witty are much appreciated. [For anyone participating in an AW blogchain: Blogchain comments do not count as Blitz comments. Blitz comments must be created separately.]
    • Finish commenting by or before October 13th. Then come back to this thread and leave a note saying that you've finished.

    I took part in one of these way back when. Not having learned my lesson, I'd like to take a shot at this one.

    No problem, Talia! I figured you needed a break.

    And -- Bill! I feel like I haven't seen you around in ages. (Maybe I'm just not very observant? Hm...) In any case, I'm glad to see you here.

    Wow! This sounds like a great idea. Count me IN!!! I think it's a fantastic way to get to know each other, explore a few blogs in this blog-mad world without getting lost, and hopefully finding a few to get addicted to in the process. :-)

    Since AW is all about writing you all might enjoy The Writer's Round-About the best so I'll go with that one this time.

    I'm looking forward to exploring your blogs. I might even sneak over early! ;-) Don't worry, I'll visit again during the official week. *grins*

    You must keep sending work out; you must never let a manuscript do nothing but eat its head off in a drawer. You send that work out again and again, while you're working on another one. If you have talent, you will receive some measure of success - but only if you persist.

    Did you know The Queen has her own blog?

    Ooh, this sounds like fun! Let me just make sure I understand the rules: participants need to comment on each blog once during that week?

    My blog is "As Yet Untitled" at http://www.elrenaevans.blogspot.com.

    Thanks for running this! What a cool idea.
