A Challenge for February, 2011

Ashley, of Live for Today invited me to do this challenge with her.  Put quite simply, the One Comment at a Time Challenge. (OCT)

So, what do you think?  In her own words...
"But I got to thinking how important a single, simple, little comment could be.
It could improve a persons mood.
It could make a person laugh for the first time that day.
It could change a persons mind.
It could totally change a persons day.
And most importantly, it could show the person the love of God."
 Doesn't everybody love comments?  I never met a blogger who didn't, and I think Ashley has really hit on something here.  I mean really, if you are going to waste time on the computer, you might as well encourage somebody while you're at it. :D

So, here is the challenge.  On EVERY POST you read during the month of FEBRUARY, you will COMMENT.  It doesn't have to be a well written thought out epistle that takes 10 minutes to read, just a simple, "Wow, what a great idea!", or "That was so encouraging", or "Haha!  That reminds me of..."

Make 'em, laugh.  Make 'em think.  Make 'em pray.  Make 'em feel like dancing.  

"Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing."

 1 Thessalonians 5:11


  1. Wow, what a neat idea! I might just have to do this. ;)

  2. What a mah-velous idea! I love comments too!

  3. What I good idea! I think I'll join in too!

  4. hey joanna! thanks for posting about it! im glad your joining in! your blog is great. :)

  5. I read it! I'm commenting!! =P
    This sounds like a lot of fun!! It made me smile! Should I expect "Joanna comments" on my blog? =) Hope you're doing well, Joanna.

  6. Ok, Joanna. I'm commenting. I think that I will take up the challenge. You'll be seeing a post about this on my blog! And I will be expecting your comments. =)

  7. Wow, Joanna, that's quite a challenge! =) Great job for taking it on. I don't think I will commit to it, because then I would be on the computer all day. =) But I will try to comment more often, even if it is short. And of course, I love comments too! =)

  8. That's a nice idea! I always try to leave positive thoughts on people's blogs too... because I love comments just as much as I'm sure everyone does, so I try to give as much as receive!
    And thank you for your sweet comment on my photographs!

  9. Wow! isn't this fun! "5 comments awaiting moderation!" :-D

    I'm glad you all are going to try it, it really does brighten a person's day. If you are posting about it, be sure to link back to Ashley!
