New Year's Challenge Day 12

Book Blogger New Year's Challenge

 The Book Blogger New Year's Challenge hosted by Parajunkee.

Day 12 (How Do You Plan On Getting More Followers This Year):

This is something that I have actually been thinking about. I think that I want to comment more on other people's blogs and just connect with more people. I think I want to stop being so obsessive over watching how many followers I have and just work on getting more comments. I really like seeing comments and knowing that someone is actually reading what I am writing. I also want to work on my content. I think that if there is better content people will come.

 What are you thinking about doing this year?

If you want to follow along here are the topics for each day:


  1. Yes, of course! Everyone loves comments! I think your plan is a good one. Sometimes it's hard not to obsess over stats, but I think you'll be happy when you interact more and see them go up.

  2. Are you commenting to comment or will you be commenting because you have a comment? Because commenting just to comment will make the other person not want to comment because then they won't feel like your comment is genuine or that the comment is worth commenting about at all. But if your comment is really a comment about something in the post worth commenting about, then the other person will just have to comment to return the awesome-ness feeling that your comment made when you commented. Then, of course, you have to wonder if their comment is just to comment or if they truly wanted to comment in return.

    That's a lot of commenting to comment on, if you know what I mean.

    1. I want to comment because I have comments. Sometimes I find myself reading a post and I have a comment but for some reason I just don't write it. Lately, I've been thinking about how much I like it when someone contributes a comment to one of my posts because it feels like people are actually reading and caring what I'm writing about. I want to start actually letting people know what I like/think about their posts.

  3. I'm going to work on my commenting as well. After several discussions with blogging friends, we all agreed that sometimes a simple "great post" is fine if you have nothing else to say. At least that lets the blogger know that someone read their post and liked it! :)

  4. Yes, I think I'll plan to comment more too and hopefully have some new features.

  5. Seems we would all like to do better on the commenting. Great plan! Thanks for visiting!
