I have got really behind with the Comment Challenge because I've been distracted with other projects. Thankfully, Day 16 was a rest day. Today's Challenge is designed to be a bit of fun but I think it sounds hard work - I have to comment on five blogs in five minutes.
My five comments
The posts I commented were all on blogs who are doing the Challenge. Interestingly, there was a bit of a theme - people were loving the Challenge and learning heaps, but they were getting tired. So my comments tended to be a little repetitious - I agreed that I had got a little tired of the Challenge so had taken a few days off to focus on other things. Now, I am feeling re-energized, motivated and ready to get back into things again.
I have to say that I was blown away when I looked at my time. I thought I had stuck well to the five minutes. But when I added up my time, it came to 30 minutes - and that was just to make quick, reasonably unconsidered comments. Goodness only knows how much time I spend when I am thinking hard about a comment.
Lesson to be learned
I think the thing that has really struck me about this exercise is to value people's comments on my blog because they invest so much of their time into making them.
