I hereby challenge you (whether you're blogging for MoFo or not) to post comments on 5-10 blogs a day. Try to pick blogs you don't usually read. You'll make a blogger's day.

I've come to accept and appreciate that while my blog has 208 followers I get almost no comments - it's a whole like attract like thing, with me being really lazy at reading blogs and commenting lately :D But I will do my best!!

I will once people get going. I'm working my way through the blogroll, and will do that again in a couple of days time. (Funny coincidence, just before I read this I was drooling over the ballpark hotdog post on your blog, mollyjade!)

I can do this! but I didn't follow MoFo for the last few years, so I have to wait for the updated RSS feed, I think. and I need to find a new blog reader!

This might be hypocrisy, but I think it's easier not to download the big RSS feed. It's too overwhelming, and then you're stuck separating out the blogs you don't want at the end.

I look at the main listing and click on a few blogs every day. That way I can read a few posts in a row from the same blog at once. When I find blogs that have lots of posts I like, I add them to a MoFo category in my reader and keep up with them all month. A few months after MoFo, if they're still posting I move them to my vegan category.

I'm definitely going to try and do this. I've only ever had one comment on my personal blog and it did really make my day!

That's a good idea, MJ! Thanks. You're right. I got super overwhelmed in years past with all the blogs in my google reader.
Who was doing the randomofo thing? Do you think they'll do it again?

ctate. I'll ask them if they're doing it again. I know they're busy rolling out new salsas/quesos.

i love this idea too! i used to have lots of comments on my blog, but lately i have almost total *crickets* and then i just start to assume no one's reading, and i kind of give up again. (and the cycle repeats, ha ha)

Such a great idea, MJ! I got so overwhelmed last year with the bundle.

This is a great idea. The whole list of participants is daunting, but maybe if I check out 10-20 a day and be sure to comment it will seem less so. I haven't blogged regularly in years so it's feeling a bit overwhelming, but I'm SO excited to find new blogs to follow and find inspiration within.

This is such a nice idea! I'm in 100%. And as a blogger whose blog is literally 4 days old, I can confirm that comments from new readers really do make the blogger's day!

I always try to comment when I read a blogpost. But now I'm waiting for the RSS feed actually.. I don't really like clicking all the links to the blogs :-p

The RSS feed isn't going to happen since google reader went down! If you don't like clicking the links check out Randomofo

yeah! Commenting is probably my favorite part of mofo! And Randomofo makes it so easy. I especially love commenting on posts that have no comments. That is just such a bummer. I really love getting comments on my blog, so I like to return the favor, for sure. Plus, it's such a fun way to discover new blogs.

Yes! I am going to try to post on 5 blogs/day. It totally makes my day to get comments and I feel bad 'cause I haven't had a chance to do it myself this weekend. Jojo has left me some very sweet comments so I'm totally inspired to get going on doing my own. :)

Randomofo has been so so helpful in exposing me to different blogs! I loves it.

I am totally doing this. I am like a giddy thing every time I get a comment so I think this is really a great idea.
