IComLeavWe

I found this the other day and thought that it was rather a good idea! How many of you wished you either left more comments or (even better) GOT more comments!?

Well, the woman who runs Stirrup Queens and Sperm Palace Jesters (it's not what you think as it's more to do with the issues of infertility, along with the usual random posts, rather than anything raunchy!!) thinks that we need to do more commenting as this is just as important as making sure that we all write regular posts!

Anyway, IComLeavWe stands for International Comment Leaving Week and at the start of a rather lengthy post setting out the rules and regulations she says...
Welcome to IComLeavWe. It stands for International Comment Leaving Week, but if you say it aloud, doesn't it sound like "I come; [but] leave [as a] we"? And that's sort of the point. Blogging is a conversation and comments should be honoured and encouraged. I like to say that comments are the new hug--a way of saying hello, giving comfort, leaving congratulations.

It's a good way of getting to know other blogs and making sure that you leave a few comments dotted about the internet! After all, how many of us read a million or two blogs and don't actually leave any comments. I certainly read far too many blogs and I know that I don't leave enough comments lying around, but then again, I haven't the time to leave them on every single blog I read.

At least this way I feel as though I have signed up to do something that will hopefully become a habit and encourage me to leave a comment, even if it's just a short note to let bloggers know that someone is actually reading their posts!!

Do head over to IComLeavWe and see what it's all about, you just never know...you might end up increasing your comment count! Either that or wearing your fingers to stubs as you try to keep up with your daily quota!!

How can I not leave a comment after reading that? I think it's a good idea too.

Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment! I know that I am more inclined to read and comment regularly those that visit and comment on my blog. Plus it is nice to know that someone is reading my blog.
