Who: ???? Other than me, I mean... :D And the voices in my head...

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: August 3rd (Sunday) through August 10th (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. :) And because blog commenting is the new pink. ;)

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 the 3rd of August 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 August 10th.
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 (August 3rd to 10th). 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!

...and we're off! Well, a few hours ago... We've got a short list this time, so it'll be easier to get the comments done. HAVE FUN, PEEPS!

So I'm not an overachiever in the same way that JJ is, but still, I'm done. :)

I haven't started yet.

I tried starting, but I failed. I'll give it another go later today!

L M Ashton
08-06-2008, 06:59 PM
Seriously? Three days in and you've failed? Are you kidding me? Cut yourself some serious slack and now! You haven't failed until it's over and you still haven't commented! Now, don't make me slap you! You don't wanna make me slap you! ;)

Kitty Pryde
08-06-2008, 07:08 PM
No, no, I failed in the short term. I'm confident of my long term success by the end of the week!

08-07-2008, 01:30 AM
Finished. I think that I have posted comments to each and each every blog. Well, I wish that I could post some more comments but I am awfully busy with the launching of a new blog network.

L M Ashton
08-07-2008, 04:51 AM
@ Kitty - :D Yeah, okay, I guess I can live with that. ;)

08-07-2008, 08:51 PM
Is it too late to get in? (Yes, I have enough time to comment on everyone's also.)

I Want My Body Back!

08-07-2008, 09:01 PM
Am I fashionably late yet? Can I join in?

(The question is a formality... I'm going into yer blogs to comment whether you want me to or not! Muahahahahaha! And stuff.)

Update: I've hit all 11 sites. Do I get a cookie now? ;)

08-08-2008, 10:19 AM
Checking in. Hit all the blogs on the list I'm pretty sure!

L M Ashton
08-08-2008, 03:07 PM
BRC and Sassee, it's already started and some people are already finished, so yes, it's too late. Catch us on the next one? :) Although I'm thinking of doing a blog chain next if no one else starts one between now and then... But meanwhile, if you want to participate unofficially, comment at will. No doubt you'll get some comments from some nice folks, but no guarantees. :)

08-09-2008, 03:08 AM
No worries...I'll catch you on the next one. ;)

08-09-2008, 11:03 PM
Okay, I'm done! Woo-hoo! And I've brought a cookie for Sassee.

08-10-2008, 06:07 AM
All done :-)

Hey guys. I'm going to finish up tonight. I'll let you know when I'm done. Looking forward to reading the rest of y'alls blogs!

08-11-2008, 03:54 AM

Gina, I had a little trouble submitting to you, so let me know if it didn't go through. Thanks everyone. It was fun.

On my way to hopping through now :D Sorry, my dog got his eye killed by my cat and I had to bother the vet and it was all drama and now he's fine and sleeping and I can comment.

I'm done. I've been done since last night, just hadn't logged on.

Gina, I had a little trouble submitting to you, so let me know if it didn't go through. Thanks everyone. It was fun.

Got it. Comments are moderated for first time visitors/commenters.

Are you going to have another one of these? I could probably do it now I'm settled into my new city...

L M Ashton
09-04-2008, 03:23 PM
Are you volunteering to host it/run it/organize it? ;)

09-05-2008, 03:12 AM
I don't have that much time ;-)

L M Ashton
09-05-2008, 05:18 AM
Unfortunately, I don't either right now, so if someone else steps up and volunteers, great! But otherwise...
