A-W Commenting Challenge: I finally did it.

I took up bestwriter ’s commenting challenge and completed it too within 12 hours. Yayyy for me emoticon :cool: emoticon :cool:

You can read about her challenge here.

When I started my commenting journey across 36 categories, I had almost 4320 coins in my bank and by the time I finished commenting, I had 4370 coins. I guess 36 came from posting comments and the rest because hopefully this activity drew some members to my posts.

During the challenge, I kept a word document open to add little snippets of information.

My first comment was on Koalemos post regarding pigeons in Category and my last comment was on a wonderful post by valmnz in category regarding how to overcome a writer’s block by trying to “Write One True Sentence to Get Started.”

I am especially grateful to cmoneyspinner who wrote about in category. This is a truly phenomenal (to use her own words) worth checking out.

I also enjoyed seeing bestwriter ‘s looming shadow over her flowers like something out of an Alfred Hitchcock in the category.

This challenge was a lot of fun but now I am feeling tired out so au revoir and God willing, see you all tomorrow.

Wow that is so cool! I hope I will have that same focus that you gave and effort for that challenge. What I am doing now is to really comment on 20 post in the homepage before I sleep... it is almost 1:48am and I have to wake up at 4:00am or at least 5am! Waahhh!!! I pray that I can really get up with a few hours of sleep. God bless. Thank you for always dropping on my page. God bless.

That must have been a happy journey. And to think that you can go on this journey again and again and earn in the process - what more can one ask. If one has the time there is enough here for one to keep oneself happily busy. emoticon :cool:

Good on you! I did commenting challenge in three sittings over about twelve hours. It's a massive undertaking, but so rewarding. Also, thanks for the mention emoticon :smile:

This is so well-written. You really did pay attention. I'm going to check out the zenpencils website.

I've heard about this challenge but haven't done it myself. It seems like a very fun challenge to do as it not only earns us coins (if we write comments with the right amount of characters) but would also broaden are horizon in terms of reading posts from different categories. Sounds like a win-win situation in my book.

This looks like a great way to be able to connect and read what other members here have written. I only check out the front page and my recent activity notice. I think I should rethink my strategy here.

Wow, that is a great challenge, and really did not take you that long to go through everything

This was bestwriter 's brainwave so the credit goes to her.

Not sure about again and again part. It was rather tiring at the end. Next time, I will cheat and take two days emoticon :smile:

Massive and rewarding undertaking just about sums it up emoticon :cool:

Putting a bit of pressure makes us better people.

Koalemos wrote on February 12, 2015, 5:49 AM

I am quite surprised that there are posts in so many categories.

wow, well done on your achievement! I hope I'll have the time and motivation to do it one of these days :)

Good for you! I've been out-of-the-loop lately and wasn't aware of this challenge. it looks like something I'll have to try.

That is easier than the 100 comments every day challenge.

Dawnwriter wrote on February 20, 2015, 2:06 AM

I would not even attempt a 100 comment a day challenge. It does get very tiring to read post after post because I read each one very carefully before posting my comment.
