Slice of Life Story Challenge

Get Ready for a Commenting Challenge!

Congratulations!  You have completed the first five 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 9th Annual SOLSC.

Here is how it works:

  • This weekend (Saturday, 3/5 and Sunday 3/6 through 11:59 PM EDT), comment on as many blogs as you can.  Record the number of comments you leave. (You could track your 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, 3/7 at noon EDT.
  • The winner will be announced on Tuesday, 3/8.  In the event of a tie, we 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 containing various writerly Paper + Goods items from Princeton Architectural Press, including notecards, journals, and designer pencils (about 10 items in total).

Thoreau Notecards:


Perfetto Pencils:


Woodcut Notebooks:


Dogs Animal Journals:


Cats Animal Journals:


Grids & Guides Red:


Night Owl Journal:


Please take a moment to thank Princeton Architectural Press by visiting their website and perusing their beautiful collection.

Enjoy writing, reading, and commenting this weekend!

  1. I know my number of comments may seem small, but I read even more slices, and commenting doesn’t go quickly for me. Even short comments take a lot of thought. I love the comments I get- always so encouraging, helpful, enjoyable. I hope to offer the same to others.


  2. Thank you for this! Even though I can’t pull off the SOL Challenge this year, my students have blogs & I was wondering how to keep everyone engaged during the week before March Break with some ahead & some behind! So . . . we’re having our Commenting Challenge this week. Awards to be handed out after the March Break! Lovin’ SOL & Two Writing Teachers. Almost too much inspiration to bear! 😉


  3. Thanks for the information,Deb. Comments are important if we are to develop a community of engaged bloggers leading to friendships. I was so upset last weekend when I saw my comments disappearing before my eyes.
