Get Ready for a Commenting Challenge #SOL17

It’s our first mid-month challenge! Are you ready?

Congratulations!  You have entered the eleventh day of the March Slice of Life Challenge (SOLSC)!  Are you noticing? Are you developing a 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 10th Annual SOLSC.

Here is how it works:

  • This weekend (Saturday, 3/11 and Sunday 3/12 through 11:59 PM EDT), comment on 60 or more SOLSC posts.  Be sure to keep track! (You could track your comments with tally marks on a Post-It note.)
  • After you leave at least 60 comments by Sunday evening, come back to this post and fill out the Google Form below. This must be done by 11:59 EDT on Sunday 3/12. Don’t forget, you will get one less hour due to Daylight Saving Time (EDT).
  • The winner will be chosen using a random number generator and announced on Tuesday, 3/14.
  • It is important to leave your information regarding the commenting challenge in the Google Form. You will notice that comments are closed for this post to ensure that all contenders input their information within the form and not inadvertently within the comment section.


  • Should you have questions regarding the commenting challenge, please contact one of the following co-authors:
      • Beth, beth[at]elizabethmoore[dot]work
      • Betsy, betsymhubbard{at}
      • Melanie, meehanmelanie{at}





The person who is randomly chosen from the commenting challenge Google Form will win an AMAZING prize! If you are the lucky winner, you will receive a “seat” in a Debbie Diller online workshop from Stenhouse Publishers!
