I Challenge Y-O-U.

Up for a challenge?

I challenge you to leave a comment on every single blog you read today. Why? Why not? (This is a challenge mostly for me. I want to let people know that I read their words, yet I always say I'll do it later and never do.)

Besides, it most likely will brighten every Blogeret's (or Blogger's) day. (Maybe I was inspired by Ms. Marta's words yesterday.)

So- go on... leave a comment!

Or, if you're not feeling up for this challenge, listen to this newly discovered band Surface of Atlantic. (Almost a cross between the Doves and Radiohead; the art-work on their website is pretty, too.)

***Thanks fellow supporters! I gotta say, this was much more difficult than I had anticipated. It's most likely because I read so many blogs throughout my day, and I'm also working, and to do both would be too time consuming. But, I'm still committed! Although I haven't been able to read all the blogs ready in my bloglines because of the time restraints, I'll gladly continue this challenge into today and the weekend...

what about you?

(Here's another fun singer for today: Jason Bajada {Make sure you listen to Sad Song About You #7})

Lacey Rocks!

what a good challenge. I visit so many people's blogs and never comment. and comments are fun. Sometimes I feel like I'm just spying on other people's lives and they'll never know it. please don't think I'm creepy now.

Hi Lacey,

I love your blog! Not sure if you remember me, I'm an old friend of Beau's (which is how I found you). Anyway, here's your comment - though I'm not sure that I can comment on EVERY blog I read today - I read too many AND am typing one-handed while feeding my daughter.

Hey, cool blog! I'm up for your challenge, but that means I'll have to go to each blog site instead of just scrolling through my google reader!

So did you reject the offer???

Erin said...

I read around 100 blogs a day. I really don't think I am up to the challenge. But hey, I commented on yours! And may I just say Lacey, your photography is looking amazing. You are super talented.

Joanna Goddard said...

love your photos:)

Spencer said...

I like your blog, Lacey. (I can't believe you don't like The Clientele!)

Krista said...

good challenge! As much as I love all comments from everyone, it's refreshing to get ones that aren't from the "regulars" ie: family and close friends

Whatever Dee-Dee wants said...

Good challenge! I am going to try and do that from now on :)

Hi Lacey,

I know you posted this yesterday, but I figure you'll still accept this comment today.

I've been a lurker on your blog for a little while.

I came over from Ali's blog... which I found through Marta's blog... which was once mentioned on "Decor8".

Normally I'll just glance at random blogs I find for one day and never return. But I kept coming back to yours because we have very similar taste in music and movies. It's fun to see what you're listening to and watching... because I'm usually doing the same. Though I've found a few new artists through you... including the ones on this post.

If it wasn't for our little boy... we'd probably get out to more concerts... and maybe run into you sometime...

Anyway, thanks for the challenge to de-lurk.

Ellen

How cute is that comment from Ellen?

Just another reason to go leave MORE comments. I took the challenge today, and let me tell you, it was not as quick as prancing through bloglines, but hopefully worth it. It's nice to know who's there.

Another great idea, Ms. Lacey.

Here is my comment. :)

tiffany said...

What a great idea! I'm in!

camihubrich said...

Hi Lacey, I'm Cami a friend of Kristin and Kim's and found your blog through them. I don't usually comment on those people that I don't actually know, but I guess I have no good reason why. Thanks for the encouragement and thanks for letting us all share in your great blog.

Thanks for the comments! Spencer- guess what? I do like some of the Clientale, especially Here Comes the Phantom and Somebody Changed... :)

Lisa Cannon said...

Since reading your blog yesterday, I've been commenting more. It is scary to comment on someone's that you don't know!!! Thanks for the challenge!!!!

meg said...

i'm so glad you left a comment-- otherwise i wouldn't have found your blog today! can't wait to explore a little more when i have the time. thanks for stopping by and leaving such kind words; they made my day. megxx

Kris said...

What a good idea! I have to admit I puruse quite a few blogs that I leave commentless and when I saw you came to my blog AND posted...I was thrilled. Way to inspire me and apparently many!

Jana&Brad said...

I love it! I too found your blog through one of those many threads in the blogging world...so many blogs, so little time.

Lyn Spataro said...

I think this is such a great idea. great challenge. ;)

annelise said...

How funny, today I had decided to go through and check all my friends' blogs, and post comments on all of them. It must be meant to be. :)

Kim said...

Hi lacey! I always look at your blog and love it.

la bella perla said...

Great idea! This is also a really great motivator for beginner bloggers and blogs to get noticed. I just started my own blog and would love to know that people are reading it and leaving comments. Thanks for your great ideas!
ps- check out my blog - labellaperla.blogspot.com - let me know what you think any advice is certainly welcomed!! :)
