Sarah, from over at Well and Cheaply, is currently running a pretty sweet blog comment challenge.  I’ve bookmarked so many new (to me) blogs in the past couple of days. Says Sarah:

The idea came about because I’ve talked with other bloggers before about the great comment conundrum.  Sometimes it can be easy (especially if you’re a blogger with a relatively small audience like me) to get too obsessed with your comments.  A post that you worked really hard on and love, with no comments, can sometimes send bloggers into a dark self doubting spiral that’s just no fun for anyone.  

And yet, while we know the dark self doubting spiral is bad blogger behavior, I think we also know that there is a reason we bloggers ask our readers for comments.  It’s because blogging is a conversation.  It’s what makes a blog different from a magazine.  We are talking to our readers like we talk to our friends who come over on a Tuesday night to sit on the balcony and drink some wine.We want to chat!  And comments can turn a really great post (or even a very average post) into a great conversation within our awesome blogging community.
The challenge is simple. Bop on over to this post, register, and then discover new, amazing blogs and leave comments for grateful bloggers.
So far, I’m the only librarian in the mix, but this challenge has given me lots of new reading material. You should totally get on this.

~Love and Libraries, Ingrid
