The other day I was trying to explain blogging to my father. By and large he gets it. What he doesn't really get is the comments. "Why doesn't everyone comment" he asked and then to me "do you comment on every blog?" The honest answer was no.
So, he said "How about you have a day when everyone is encouraged to comment on everyones blogs."
Father is a genius!
1. We haven't got enough time.
2. We think that that blogger has so many comments she won't possibly need/ recognise/read mine.
3. We don't have anything to say.
I think these are all VALID and GOOD reasons. But hand on heart there are blogs that I check most days yet comment on less than once a month.
I know it isn't always possible to comment but I think it is important that we encourage one another for each post is full of heart and has taken time.
So.. this is my propasal...
On Thursday 5th April I am going to make it my mission to comment on EVERY BLOG I VISIT. Just for this one day I am going to speak out on these blogs. Blogs big and small. I will write a comment.
I would love love love it, if some of you joined me in this. Feel free to use the button at the top of the post. Pass it onto others, so we can have one day when the internet is awash with people sending words of encouragment and praise.
"Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing."
1 Thessalonians 5:11
This is something that is really on my heart and I am so excited for, thank you for reading!
