2013 Comment Challenge

The Comment Challenge is back! Lee Wind at I'm Here, I'm Queer, What Do I Read?  and Pam at Mother Reader have brought back the comment challenge for 2013!

The idea is to comment five times on blogs each day for 21 days to create a habit of commenting and creating a community in the blogging world. I'm hoping I can start reading my blog feed again this year-I've really lacked in that in 2012 due to all my committee reading. I love leaving comments for bloggers and I love participating in the comment challenge, so we'll see if I can keep up the challenge this year!

You can find the sign up at I'm Here. I'm Queer. What Do I Read? I hope you join in and comment away!!

  1. I love this challenge. I am really bad at commenting, although I read blogs everyday, including every post of yours. I'm going to try to be better at commenting this year. Thank you for your great blog and all the work you put into it.

  2. Sounds like an awesome way to get back into commenting. It really is important to connect with other bloggers.

    I am hoping to visit your blog more this year because I really enjoy it. It's hard because I follow so many blogs and my own blog takes so much time. But I'm trying.

  3. I'm just getting into commenting, although I've been following quite a few blogs for awhile. I like the idea behind the challenge as well.

  4. I probably won't officially join this challenge, but I really like the idea of setting a goal like that for myself. I was originally thinking of making Sundays my blog comment day, but commenting on a few every day will probably be better.

  5. Thanks for this info! I just signed up! I had a ridiculously busy fall that got me out of the habit of regularly commenting on blogs. I'm hoping to build that habit up again!

  6. Thanks for sharing about this contest-I think it's just what I need to stay motivated. I'm anxiously awaiting Jan. 28...I can't wait to hear what the new Printz book will be this year. I hope you'll post something after the announcement because it would be awesome to have an insider's perspective!

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There is nothing worse than coming across a book you are really enjoying only to be pulled out of it because of some outdated and incorrect library reference.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
