Just thought I would write a very quick post to keep you up to date on this lovely little 100 blog comment challenge!
Little challenge I say? NOT!
This has been the most amazing ride I have had in a long time! It has been hard work, time consuming and very tiring!
My fingers are sore, my brain is completely drained and my eyes feel like they are hanging out of my head!
Who knew what a little bimbo idea of mine could turn into! (Note to self: Let bimbo brain go to sleep for a week! I need a rest! :lol:)
This has been awesome, amazing, incredible and inspiring all at the same time!
The blogs that joined the challenge have been incredible, some of them full of content I got myself lost for hours!!
First I would like to say a very big THANK YOU so much to all of you that joined me in this challenge.
THANK YOU for believing in the challenge,
THANK YOU for promoting the challenge &
THANK YOU for honouring your commitment to the challenge.
I have been around to everyone’s blogs a couple of times over the last few days, taking a tally of the blog comments as I go. Some are missing comments, whether they have ended up in people’s spam folders or they haven’t checked their blogs yet I am not sure.
I do know it is holidays in the Northern Hemisphere right now so I am pretty sure some people are still on holidays too!
I also get the feeling a few people will still be blog commenting over the next few days to catch up. As long as everyone honours the challenge that is more my concern right now.
Getting people inspired to join the challenge was the easy part so to speak (Actually it was still hard and I thank everyone for promoting it to get everyone on board!).
Keeping people inspired to complete the challenge has been the hard part.
It is actually up to the challengers the level of success this is in the end.
There has also been a couple of blogs playing up as well. We lost Craig Breeze (Was 95) due to his blog going down so we replaced him with Ashwandra Michelle (101).
And as far as I can tell we are having problems with John Edward’s blog post (45), Jeremiah Carstephan’s blog post (59) and Shameka P’s blog post (50). Hopefully those blogs will be sorted out shortly.
I do plan on going around to everyone’s blogs again at the end of the week to do another tally of comments and do another round of social book marking for everyone.
(I have twittered everyone, however I would like to do some facebooking, digging and stumbling too! Just to share the challenge love a little more! :D)
Plus I also plan on writing a blog post in about 2 weeks time summarising the challenge overall honouring all those that completed the challenge and letting everyone know the final results.
For those of you that have completed the challenge I would love your feedback.
Should we do this again?
If so when do you think we should run it knowing the commitment that this challenge REALLY is and the time we need to honour it?
What would you change about it?
For example the length of the challenge, the amount of blogs, the type of blog post to contribute? Should the blog post be a new one?
I actually think everyone should submit a new blog post next time and one dedicated to their niche. What do you think?
What would you improve about it?
Have a dedicated website? Given more notice before joining? What rules would you introduce such as a commitment to visit 25 blogs each week or something like that?
What suggestions would you have to make it fun and inspiring?
Motivation type stuff? Regular posting etc etc
THANK YOU so much for an amazing yet very tiring month!
Hubby and bubba think I have glued myself to the computer. I think they need some cuddle time too!
See you back here soon!
Until next time……..
Happy Blog Hopping!
P.S If you are a current challenger I would love your feedback on the questions above.
