Summer 2018 Comment Challenge Wrap Up + Newsletter Sign Up

It’s always bittersweet to bid farewell to our annual Comment Challenge. We’ve had so much fun getting to know our fellow bloggers, having a chance to pair each of you these last three months in hopes who’ll make a new blogging friend, and seeing all the effort we’ve poured into the challenge being so well-received. We appreciate every blogger who signed up and participated. You are the reason we bring this challenge back every summer.

I’d first like to give a special shout out to my Summer 2018 Comment Challenge partners: Elnade @ Confessions of a Serial Reader, Carolina @ Fictionologyst, and Barb @ Booker T’s Farm. You three made my summer so much more enjoyable. I loved getting an opportunity to engage with you on a regular basis. Whether it was reviews, music recommendations, or doggy stories, your posts always brightened my day.

Your hosts, Lonna @ FLYLēF and Alicia @ A Kernel of Nonsense, would like to take the opportunity to encourage you to make a wrap-up post of your own for the Summer 2018 Comment Challenge. We’d love to hear your thoughts on the challenge. This also helps us spread the word about the Comment Challenge, so other bloggers can join in on the fun. A few suggestions to help you with your post:

  • Include the banner at the top of this post
  • Link back to both of your hosts
  • Give a shout out to your partner(s)
  • Share what this challenge has meant to you
  • Include a link to the Comment Challenge Newsletter (details below)

Wrap-up Link-up: You can add your wrap-up post to the link-up below, which will be open until October 1st. Be sure to visit your fellow bloggers.


What happens next? We are planning to bring back the challenge Summer of 2019. Signups will begin at the beginning of May as always. If you’d like a reminder in your inbox when we bring this challenge back, be sure to sign up for the Comment Challenge Newsletter here. If you signed up last year, no need to sign up again, we’ve already got you on the list.

Thank you again for making the Summer 2018 Comment Challenge possible. Can’t wait to see you again next year!
