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!

Yes! Comments are awesome and going out of your way to find posts to comment on can bring you to some great new blogs :)

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.

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.

Great idea! I've never participated in Mofo but read tons of blogs. Commenting will be my contribution.

I am making it a point to comment on a few blogs a day. I always have high hopes and then slow down as the month goes on. I am going to try and do better this year. I seem to have some challenges with some of the Tumblr blogs. Does anyone else have problems commenting on Tumblr?

I never comment on tumblrs because I don't have a tumblr and most of them don't use an external comment system.

I'm trying to comment as much as I can but I haven't worked out how to read the rss feed yet. Which I think will help. I miss google reader!

That happens to me a lot too. It's super frustrating but to make it less annoying I copy what I've written so that if it mysteriously disappears I can just paste it into the new space.
