RhiReading July Comment Challenge [+ giveaway!]


I've wanted to do a commenting related giveaway for a really long time because even though my stat counter tells me people are visiting... the lack of comments makes me curious as to WHO is here. So let's get a conversation going! Your meaningful commenting this month will give you the chance to win a book by one of my favorite authors. 

What is a meaningful comment?

A meaningful comment tells me something about how you interacted with the post you are commenting on. Here are a couple of great examples of what I mean...

From a review:


From a promotional post with a giveaway:


What isn't a meaningful comment?

"Thanks for the giveaway."

"Nice review."

...and any other vague comment that isn't contributing to a starting or participating in a conversation.

I appreciate all of my followers and the authors, publishers, and tour groups I work with do too. Thanks for being one of them! ♥ 

For your comment on this post to enter the giveaway please tell me...

What holds you back from commenting on blogs you visit?

Aside from giveaway posts what makes you want to comment on a post?

Do you prefer commenting on blogs themselves or through social media (ie. Facebook)?

What are some of you favorite blogs to comment at and what about them makes you feel compelled to join their conversations?

I thought I'd start the conversation by answering my own questions...

I know what holds me back is often that I can't think of something meaningful to say about a post, usually promo ones.

For me, I have a sort of mental list of bloggers whom I like for their personality or style that I have been trying to be more active about visiting and commenting on. It's hard to get out of my introverted shell (even online!) sometimes but I know how much they appreciate it since I experience the same thing. I literally feel like a rock star when certain bloggers/authors leave me a comment. lol

In honesty I like to comment on FB because I like having a lot of things in one place but find I wind up 'talking to myself' since NO ONE comments on my FB page.

While I have the challenge here for YOU to comment on my blog. I've given myself a personal challenge to leave meaningful comments on 3 blogs every day this month and to try and visit/follow/meet more bloggers to expand my comfort zone.

I'm not actually participating in this giveaway because I have already TOO MANY books on my tablet. I thought about answering your questions because...why not? :)

Q: What holds you back from commenting on blogs you visit?

A: Nothing holds me back! If I have something to say or praise a review, I'll say it. :) If I don't know anything about the book in question then maybe I'll say "Oh it looks nice" but I do say something after I read a post because I'm also a reviewer and just a little comment is really nice and encourages me.

Q: Aside from giveaway posts what makes you want to comment on a post?

A: Feel like I answered to this...Not your fault though! I like encouraging people's posts and have a passion for reading so that makes it pleasant.

Q: Do you prefer commenting on blogs themselves or through social media (ie. Facebook)?

A: Usually on blogs because I'm rarely on FB. Maybe I'll ''like'' a post on FB but I'm rarely posting an elaborated comment there.

Q: What are some of you favorite blogs to comment at and what about them makes you feel compelled to join their conversations?

A: Rabid Reads definitely because Jessica is one of my favorite reviewers and she's a great person with whom I discuss on GR. Plus, she also leaves meaningful comments back. Other than that one, I really don't have favorites. I travel from blog to blog, leave comments here and there but always come back to Rabid Reads and I comment back. :)

Well, that was nice. :)

Q: What holds you back from commenting on blogs you visit?
A: Usually I don't comment when 1) I don't have enough time to comment/forget to comment when I do have time. 2) Don't have really meaningful to say other than "book sounds interesting. 3) I'm not logged into any of the accounts that the blogs accounts, and I'm too lazy to log in. xD

Q: Aside from giveaway posts what makes you want to comment on a post?
I comment on reviews when I think will want to read it sometime in the future or if it is a type of book that appeals to me. Or I comment if I have a point of view on a subject (like that one time you had a guest post on series/completed series).

Q: Do you prefer commenting on blogs themselves or through social media (ie. Facebook)?
A: On blogs since most blogs I visit you don't need to log into anything in order view/comment. When I am on facebook, it is usually because I got an e-mail saying I have some kind of notification, otherwise I ignore my FB account.

Q: What are some of you favorite blogs to comment at and what about them makes you feel compelled to join their conversations?
A: The only blog I really comment on saying things other than "ooo... sounds interesting" is this one and personal blogs. I comment on yours mostly because most of the books/guest posts appeal to me more than other sites. Also, I hardly visit blogs since I am busy finding a job, playing an online game, fixing my own blogs up, and reading.

:D There are times I have to leave a note in a comment on a post where a giveaway is happening because of the same thing Lola! I will never read all of my books and yet... I can't seem to stop adding to my collection.

And I have done the same Koori, if I'm not logged in... oi... sometimes I'm just that tired or lazy myself. ;)
