Who: ???? Other than me, I mean... :D

What: Leave at least one comment at each other's blogs over a one-week period.

Where: Online. The URLs list will be at the end of this post.

When: June 27th (Fri) through July 6th (Sun). We'll start sooner if we have enough people signed up sooner.

Why: Why not? And to find new readers for our blogs, and to find new blogs for us to read. :) And because it's fun. And because we all love having comments on our blogs. :)

Sign up by posting a response in this thread. Please indicate the name of your blog and the blog URL in your post. Please make sure your blog is of general enough interest - or that there are at least a couple of recent posts that are of general enough interest - that anyone on AW will find something to comment on. I'm looking for around 15 participants total.
Start commenting on June 27th 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 or other blogging event: comments in those other events do not count as Blitz comments. Blitz comments must be created separately.]
Finish commenting by or before July 6th.
Report back in this list. Come back to this thread and leave a note saying that you've finished.By signing up, you are committing to commenting on 14 blogs over a 10-day period (June 27 - July 6th). Please note that this will take both both time and effort. If you aren't sure that you'll be able to do it, please don't ask to be added to the list. Thanks!

I hope I'm not too late--I have a brand new baby blog and would love some feedback...can I play?

06-22-2008, 04:18 PM

This is funny, but I'm torn between my main blog (writing and blogging) and one of my little spinoffs (fiction and fiction writing).

Laurie, can you switch mine over to http://fiction.spontaneousderivation.com/ ? Thanks!

06-23-2008, 05:37 AM
DOH! Laurie just threw a shoe at me!

So, if there is any chance you could be so kind....

By the way, really cute baby loon pics there right now;)

I have deadlines to meet towards the end of June/start of July. Can you pull me from the comment blitz?

I'll have to wait for a future one. :(

*deadlines* *deadlines* *etc*

L M Ashton
06-25-2008, 03:19 PM
Ava Jarvis is out, KellyC is in, so we're still at 14. One space still available. Who's in?

Sorry I was a little slow in getting back in here, Ava and Kelly. I haven't been feeling entirely well the last couple of days...

06-25-2008, 03:34 PM
Count me in.


L M Ashton
06-25-2008, 03:45 PM
We've got our fifteen, so we're good to go. Translated: y'all can get started on commenting now, so you've got a head start. Remember to finish by the deadline mentioned in the first post, and please, remember to post in here as soon as you're done to let us know.

And, you know, as a favour to me, would y'all mind giving me a day or two before you comment on my blog? My brain has been pretty much hooped, so I'd like to get a new post or three up... Pretty please with a cherry on top? :)

JJ Cooper
06-25-2008, 04:09 PM
Thanks Laurie. Hope you're feeling better soon.


06-25-2008, 04:13 PM

You're the bomb diggity! Hope you feel better.

L M Ashton
06-25-2008, 04:47 PM
Bomb diggity? That's a new one. :) Thanks, honeycomb and JJ. :)

06-26-2008, 01:13 AM
Thanks Laurie! Hope you're feeling better soon - thanks for keeping us commenting!

Ava Jarvis
06-26-2008, 04:46 AM
Feel better soon, Laurie. Rest! :)

06-26-2008, 05:24 PM
I think I've visited and commented on everyone's blog (except Laurie - she wants us to wait 'til next week.)

Honeycomb - I left a comment, but I don't think it stayed? Maybe it's moderated or something and will show up later.

If I missed anyone, please shoot me a message. THANKS!

06-27-2008, 01:05 AM
Okay, done.

Laurie do you mind posting here when you are ready for comments?

L M Ashton
06-27-2008, 11:17 AM
I've got a post up, so feel free to 'ave at 'er. :) I even have a second one going for tomorrow on the same theme. Not saying the post is absolutely brilliant...

Thanks for being so patient and for the well wishes, y'all. :)

06-29-2008, 05:58 AM
I've commented on everyones. This was fun. Lot's of interesting reading.

Tina: I posted a comment on yours, but nothing showed up.

OBTW, The weight loss contestants' photos will be up tomorrow. My Pastor even threw in some incentive.

06-30-2008, 07:59 PM
I've commented :-) Gina and Tina- I put comments on both yours, but I didn't see them or a thing that said they'd be up after moderation...??

Lyra Jean
07-01-2008, 01:37 AM
I commented on everyone's. I'm pretty sure. I didn't go straight down the list so let me know if I skipped anyone.

07-01-2008, 11:08 AM
All first time commenters are put in moderation. Once approved the first time, you're in my system and the next comment will go right through.

JJ Cooper
07-01-2008, 11:13 AM
Finished. Thanks again everybody. I had a great time reading and commenting.


Kitty Pryde
07-01-2008, 11:21 PM
Woo! Done. Thanks for all the comments. Lots of interesting blogs around here.

07-02-2008, 12:44 AM
All done hopping around!

07-02-2008, 04:46 PM
all done, and this was the most enjoyable one of all;)

07-04-2008, 01:06 AM
When's the next one?

L M Ashton
07-04-2008, 05:02 AM
*laughs* Addicted, much?

How about we get it started a few days after this one is over?

07-04-2008, 06:04 AM
Whew! All done--great blogs, everyone! If I missed you, let me know--I didn't want to double-post a comment if it was in moderation, so one or two may or may not have gone through.

07-04-2008, 07:10 AM
sounds good, ashton

07-04-2008, 08:25 AM
Woo-hoo! I am done!

07-04-2008, 08:39 AM
I think I'm done as well.

07-07-2008, 08:53 PM
I'm almost done. Still catching up, my little guy was not feeling well yesterday and into the night and DH wasn't home.

ETA: Done, done, done, done, done! (Okay, that should be 14 "done's" but you get the picture.)
That was great fun, lots of great reads everyone!

L M Ashton
07-08-2008, 07:28 PM
I'm finally done! Yay! But it's now bedtime, so I'll update the list tomorrow morning with who's reported in and who's left (if anyone). Great blogs, everyone! I really enjoyed getting to know some new bloggers. What fun! :)

07-09-2008, 05:24 AM
Unless I missed something we're still waiting to hear from escritoria and KellyC who still need to check in and let us know that they're done. :)

ETA: Except, upon further review, both were done except for my blog (which I'd requested a couple of days on) in the first few days of the, uh, thingie, and I know they've both commented on mine, so I'm thinking they're done. :)

Great fun, everyone! Thanks for playing! :D

07-09-2008, 05:29 AM
Yes, I'm done. :-)

L M Ashton
07-09-2008, 05:32 AM
Thanks for confirming. :)

07-29-2008, 04:08 AM
Is there a July comment blitz in the works? :)

L M Ashton
07-29-2008, 05:06 AM
Y'all know that anyone can start one anytime they want, right? ;)

Sure, I'll get one going, but I'm going to call it August. :)
