It’s almost July. It’s almost winter!
In celebration of these things, Megan Burke of Literary Life is running something called the Comment July Challenge.
Megan has realised that she’s a lurker. She reads a ton of blogs every day, but comments on a very small percentage of them. I’m the same. I don’t let fellow bloggers know that I enjoyed their posts often enough, I don’t often contribute to threads worthy of a discussion. Sorry, blog world.
Here’s how we make amends:
For the entire month of July, I (and Megan, and the other people who have also taken Megan’s vow of commenty) pledge to comment on at least five blogs per day, in an effort to better connect myself with the blogs I read, and make sure that the producer of said blogs feel the love.
As part of her vow Megan is posting links to her comments so her devoted readers can take part in the discussions. I’ll be posting highlights weekly, so you can keep track of where I’ve been having some commenty-fun.
Hats off to Miss Megan for such an awesome idea! Head over to her site to make your own pledge, and spread happiness and light with the Comment July Challenge.

OK I’ll be commenty – and a little pedantic – by suggesting you may have meant “amends”.

I’m taking the pledge. Will head over the Megan’s blog soon to let her know.
This is a great idea. I’ve noticed a lot of lurkers on my blog. Lots of people say they read but never say anything. I admit to often doing the same, but do comment on blogs a bit more than most I’d say.

This is a great idea. I am in the same boat, I always struggle to think of something relevant to add – but sometimes it just helps people to know that you are thinking about what they write.
