Go on…. sign up to be an awesome blog commenter this July! You know, it’s good for the bloggy soul!

Remember when we all left comments on blogs? I looked at some of my old blog posts, and they’re full of discussions, friendly notes, silly pictures, and occasionally spin off into random banter. I have made friends via blog comments, and found interesting other blogs through the links left by commenters.

So this is why Eva has tried to rally us all around making comments again. Actual comments, not just sharing links, or talking on Facebook or Twitter and never clicking through to the post.

Join us? I’ll be your best friend!

    Yeah it’s definitely been a trend the last couple of years. My blog was never really that popular, but I’d still get more comments that I do these days. Some times I’ll go months without a comment from a real human being I know…
