Hey, let's start a bit of a challenge here. There's lots of new bloggers on the roll this year and starting out is rough, especially if you don't think anyone is reading. I challenge you, yes YOU to comment on 5 blogs a day. Wish them well, tell them they rock, and support the other participants.

Sometimes it can get frustrating when starting out, a comment might brighten up someones day!

I keep commenting but I'm not sure if they're actually going through. :/

Nope, just user error/issues with trying to comment on touchscreen devices rather then a regular computer/keyboard.

I'm definitely up for this! In an effort to force me to read more blogs and get involved (I do enjoy it but I lack any kind of motivation after a long shift at work) I'm linking to a few of my favourite Mofo finds at the end of each of my posts :)

I got your comment, Rachel, thank you! I had to approve it first. I've just turned off comment moderation for my blog though as an experiment for Vegan MoFo 2014.

Yes! I may not be blogging but that won't stop me from commenting.

I think Jojo has said in other commenty threads to TURN OFF YOUR CAPTCHA FOR MOFO!! And equally important perhaps, for those of you with blogspot or wordpress I think: I'm seeing so many blogs I am commenting on but then can't submit because there's no "Name/URL" option, only things like "OpenID, LiveJournal, AIM, TypePad," etc. OMG PLEASEEE if you have the option, add Name/URL!! Who has those things!

I commented like a mofo (non capitalized) today! I'm doing my part as a non blogger!

So many good first posts today.

^ Seconded! Sometimes I forget until after writing a comment, then I have to scrap it.

I'm trying super hard to comment but yup, it's hard from a phone especially with the capchas. I also can't seem to leave Discus (sp?) comments 95% of the time so I'm probably gonna have to give up on those 'til the 10th when I get home as writing a comment, hitting submit a tonne of times and then having to give up makes me a sad panda!

Turns out I had captcha on and no Name/URL option but this is now sorted...thanks for posting this as I wouldn't have realised otherwise.
