Commenting Challenge

TWT SOLSC Prize Image 2015 - V2 copyCongratulations!  You have completed the first seven days of the March Slice of Life Challenge (SOLSC)!  Doesn’t it feel great to develop a daily writing habit?

As you know, our community thrives on comments.  We share our stories in the hopes we will connect with our readers.  In the spirit of that community, we offer the first mid-month challenge of the 8th Annual SOLSC.

Here is how it works:

  • This weekend (Saturday, 3/7 and Sunday 3/8 through 11:59 PM EDT), comment on as many blogs as you can.  Record the number of comments you leave.  (I usually tracked my comments with tally marks on a Post-It note.)
  • After you leave your last comment on Sunday evening, come back to this post and fill out the Google Form below.  The form must be completed before Monday, 3/9 at noon EDT.
  • The winner will be announced on Tuesday, 3/10.  In the event of a tie, I will choose the winner’s name out of a hat.

The person who leaves the most comments throughout Saturday and Sunday will win an AMAZING prize package of eleven books, donated by the good folks at Peachtree Publishers.

  1. I’ve been commenting extra any time I can ~ from both VCVaile and Vanessa Vaile depending on platform, doing so otherwise is not a viable option. If they don’t all “count” toward something, then so be it. It’s more ad hoc than planned. Tallying and filling our the form would take away from commenting time.

  2. I’m having trouble leaving comments on many of the teacher and student blogs. When I am ready to post my comment, I get a drop down menu and my blog address (edublog) is not listed. Therefore my comment is not accepted. Is there anything that can be done to remedy this?

    • I can look into it. Maybe we can put a message out to people to remove some security settings again. In the meantime, will another option from the menu work for you? (Gmail account, Anonymous, etc.)

      • Not all of the drop down options list anonymous (which did work for me yesterday). This morning I tried to use the Google option and it worked. Hopefully it will work with others as well. I don’t know if this will affect my students who don’t have gmail accounts.

      • I’ve seen this, too. One of the options is “LiveJournal” I have a LiveJournal account, and tried to use that, but it never would “go through”. It just kept refreshing to the same thing. The one thing that does work on those (It’s Blogger, I think) is if people enable “Name/URL” as an option.
