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.
