Slice of Life: What's Your Commenting Plan? 8 of 31
Each year when I weigh whether to join the Slice of Challenge, I have two conversations with myself. The first is always about whether I can produce 31 days of writing and be okay with the "unfinishedness" of some posts. The second is about commenting. One of my favorite things about the challenge is going from blog to blog to read the writing of others in the community, but commenting can be its own challenge.
My typical plan is to comment on the three blogs before my post on TWT when I leave my comment. This usually gives me a chance to visit a wide variety of blogs and discover a few new favorites. Over the last few years, I have been hearing more and more about people later in the day not getting as many comments. This year, I decided to change my plan, instead of commenting on three before me, I now comment on the post before mine, the one after mine and one that was posted 12 hours before or after my post. Additionally, I am trying to be more intentional to go back later in the evening when I have time or first thing the next morning to find a few late posts to read and leave a comment.
Commenting is truly its own challenge. I'd love to hear how you are managing commenting. Any great tips?
It's March and I'm diving back into the March Slice of Life Challenge! Buckle in! This will be my 8th year joining the community (though I must confess to a two year break). Yep, some of the writing will be messy. Honestly, most of it will be messy. Thanks for stopping by. I'm excited to dive back into the madness. Thanks to Two Writing Teachers for hosting.
