Comment Challenge 2012

It's the start to a new year and one of my blogging resolutions is to comment more on the blogs I read. So of course I had to sign up for Mother Reader and Lee Wind's Comment Challenge 2012.

The goal of the challenge is to leave at least 5 comments between today (January 5) and January 25 and to read 100 comments by the end. Each Wednesday we'll check in and post our updates. I'm going to try and keep track of comments on this post so I have an easy tallying system.

So won't you join in? It's the perfect way to make that new goal and get into the commenting habit in the new year!

1/7-7 comments

  1. What a great challenge! I actually kind of love leaving comments for other bloggers, just bc I know how excited I get when someone takes the time to thoughtfully respond to something I've written. Good luck!

  2. I too, signed up for the Challenge and hope to learn a ton from other blogs. Maybe along the way, someone might learn from mine. This will also force me to update my blog on a regular basis.

    I look forward to reading your posts!

  6. Good luck with your tallying - that gets a little tricky! :)

    This year I have been trying to select a few blogs to visit and send their links to my email account to remind myself to go back and comment if possible. The Flipboard app is pretty slick for this function :)

    Happy commenting!

  8. I should sign up for the challenge but this year I decided to pass on the challenges since I either a)fail to finish them or b) finish them but forget to update. I am trying to comment more this year too though. I've been tackling my reader tonight and forgot how good it feels to leave comments on people's blogs!

Dear Books: Please Update Your Libraries

There is nothing worse than coming across a book you are really enjoying only to be pulled out of it because of some outdated and incorrect library reference. I know that authors and illustrators will not always get everything 100% accurate, but I when I read books that show a very dated stereotype, or something that is just so incorrect, I always wonder why. I feel like authors and illustrators should know better! And it's not just older books-it happens in new books too! I recently read A Big Surprise for Little Card by Charise Mericle Harper and illustrated by Anna Raff.  I absolutely loved this book! It's a creative look at libraries through the eyes of a library card. It's perfect for my outreach visits and storytimes about the library and promoting what value there is in a library card. Anna Raff gets major points for illustrating a very cool and hip librarian as well! But the librarian tells card to shush and is a bit annoyed when he shows up. And then l
