It's Comment Love Day

Well Hello 2011. We've made it through one heck of a year, goodbye 2010, we welcome 2011 with our arms wide open. It was a wonderful way to end it. We have met some  a ton of really amazing blogs here and continue to carry that out. We wish each and every one of you all the best this new year has to offer.

Each Week we Host Hops that have NO RULES. I like it that way and continue to have it that way. Except for today. Each Sunday we will be hosting Comment Love Day. It's all about commenting because we all know how busy we can get where we can't always comment on each of the lovely blogs we read. I personally view a lot of blogs on my phone and it's not easy to log in to leave comments. And I know many others who have the same problem. As much as I would love to wait a hundred hours for my phone to upload, it's impossible. So we are dedicating one day to comment love and we hope you'll all find time to join in. I also wanted to mention something because several people think this: If your not getting a lot of comments on your posts, it's not because people are not reading. It's most likely for reasons I've already stated. So do not get discouraged, keep blogging and know that people are reading your blog, they just may not always be able to comment. But I do think it's important to set a day aside to show that love. So if you can't participate today then maybe set aside one day during each week to do that.

The Rules are Quite Simple. You don't have to be a member to link up (although it would be lovely if you joined this rockin' club). Just follow these steps and link up.




fortheloveofblogs



1.) Link Up and Leave a Comment Here Afterwards. If you don't we will delete your link. It's only fair that everyone linking up do this.

2.) Head To The Blog In Front (before) your Comment to leave them a comment on their post. (No Copy and Pastes, Must be something Related to their post) Tell them where your coming from and wish them a good day!

3.) Visit at least 2-3 Other Blogs in the Hop and Do the Same.

4.) Return The Love when you get a chance.

5.) If I find any of you asking for a follow in return, we will remove any comments and links you put on this site. This is not a place where you can go asking people to follow you. It makes people feel uncomfortable and it's not nice. If someone wants to follow you, they will. They will because you were being sincere. This also goes for asking someone to check you out. All you need to do is leave your link after the comment. You don't need to ask or demand things.

Thanks for being here. Jump in and share the love. We like to encourage you to also mention a blog you love in your posts (we like to call them shout outs), it's a great way to get involved, gain friends and readers.

You'll Notice Two Very New Buttons on our Sidebar. Feel free to grab one if you like them better.

You'll also notice our new blog of the month. Stop by, say hello and congrats. Don't forget to nominate. And Visit Our Runner Up as well.

The Winner of The Ad Space on Freckles and Fudge was Lisa Rosalie. Congrats! Don't get all antsy though. You'll have a chance to win more big things here on FTLOB. Stay tuned.
Enjoy the day.

Thanks for posting these rules. I had to re-read them to make sure I know them correctly. I know I said this once before, but it's sooooooooo awkward when people say, "Follow me back!" Puts you on the spot...

Klove said...

Hello friends! Hope you had a super new years! XOXO

AubrieAnne said...

Happy New Year. Yes, we did make it and looking forward to another year, better than the last, and one to remember.

W00T! for banning the "follow back" pleas. (I actually wrote a blog about this a few days ago!)

I linked, followed you (becuase I keep meaning to, then forgetting, then can't find you)

and started commenting on other blogs!

Poekitten said...

YAY for comments and NOT asking for follow backs! I also wrote a post about this recently:) Hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday.

Chas said...

I love that you host so many bloghops with no rules. This will fun too!

CarliAlice said...

Thank you for hosting this! I love comments that are actually about what I wrote. It's fun!

DawnZhang said...

I found you guys through Donna's blog and I love this. And yeah thanks for the rules lol. A very Happy New Year to you guys.

DawnZhang @ http://dawn-zhang.blogspot.com/

Lots of love.

Kyria said...

Thanks for posting the rules. I am new to this! I love that you do this, because you are SO RIGHT -- I check most of the blogs I follow in Google Reader on my phone and it is hard to go through and comment a lot. BUT I AM READING nonetheless!

Happy New Year!

Heather said...

It's so nice of you to host this special hop or really a very kind gesture from one blogger to another. Giving a sense of appreciation to the sites that are suitable to your taste. And also allowing us to give SHOUT OUTS to those we love!
Hope you had a safe and Happy New Year!
And I LOVE your new blog buttons! Will have to grab one.

Heather said...

I have submitted my link twice and it still hasn't shown up. Go figure!

Heather said...

Well now it is showing up 3 times, you can delete 2. Sleep deprivation is all I can chaulk it up to or mental causes!

Danni Meyers said...

Love the new rules! I think that in our busy lifestyles it is good to leave comments every now and again. Thanks guys!

Kindest wishes

I love this idea!! The hops can be fun, but the copied and paste, "follow me" get old. Its nice when people put some thought into a comment. I know for the most part I try to do that.

Melissa Nesdahl said...

Heather M said...

Thanks for the fun hop! Off to check out some new blogs.

Here's one more comment from a blogger who read this post too late to link (maybe next week?). :) I absolutely love your blog and what you are doing. We could all use an extra bit of encouragement for our different types of blogs. This is an awesome way to get that going!
Thank you! :)
