Comment Friday – April 27th

Comment FridayComment friday is a fun and simple idea. Leave us a comment about anything you want. By leaving a comment, you will have your blog visited by me, and you may even get a link out of it. I will select a blog from the comment list to be linked to and have their link on our blogroll, until next friday.

We have many of the same commentors participating weekly, we are getting some great and fun discussions. Not only am I visiting blogs, but other people are checking you out as well.

Last week we achieved our goal and got 30 comments. I am pretty excited as to what we can do today comments wise.

Last week John Murphy won from Invest Journal with a great comment, about commenting. This week it could be anyone.

Get commenting, thanks for stopping by!

    At last! I’ve been waiting for it while I was at work.

    Disscussion… hmm… maybe I’ll start with a rubbish one then. Hangover – fancy to have one on Friday? I’m having it today while one of my friends said it last night that he doesn’t mind to drink a lot of Thursday night because people don’t normally do much work on Friday…

    Oh yeah, I was witing for this Friday as well!

    I used to do the Friday hangovers, but Saturdays are much better when you can sleep it off! :-)

    A RSS video has been making the rounds these days including my blog. By encouraing RSS subscription, are you shunning your regular readers to their feed readers?

    Does everyone promote it like we do or do you just leave it like a use it if you want place in your blog?

    That does have some logic to it Windy :P . Fridays indeed are the least productive days of the week when it comes to work, and heck, it’s better than having a hangover on your day off ;) .

    And nice idea to have a comment Friday :) , good luck on achieving the 30 again! One extra from me already to speed up the process ;) .

    That’s a wonderful idea. I think I may just use that one too!

    30 comments are easy ;-)

    K, I do try to promote RSS from time to time because it makes it more convenient for people to visit you.

    A lot of people may stop visiting blogs but fewer delete feeds even if they don’t read them Gives them a chance of seeing it in their reader, and thinking ‘whats that?’

    I’ll throw my comment out to try and help reach the 30 for the day.

    Per the discussion of hangovers, I’ve always been lucky to not experience hangovers. Granted my drinking has slowed way down since college but I am always up and ready to go the next morning.

    Oh the pressure about commenting about something good in comments.
    Hmmm, If you drink red wine add some cranberry juice to it, this makes the hangover less severe.

    More seriously don’t drink and blog, this could lead to silly comments on other peoples blogs and deletion of important stuff on your own. Not that i would ever do that:O

    I’m lucky if I get 3 beers a week, let alone enough to generate a hangover. Good luck with your comment Friday quest for 30.

    I have not had a Friday Hangover but I did have a Tuesday hangover once. It was Horrible! I had only about 4 hours of sleep and had to go to work as a waitress and that was back before the smoking ban so the cigarettes just made me sicker.

  17. Ginene said:

    I thought about this idea too. Ok now I want to know if there any new paid to blog sites. I have recently heard about smorty, sponsoredreviews and linkylovearmy. Anyone else hear about more?

    April 27th, 2007 at 12:51 pm
  18. Psycho Dude said:

    Haha @ Claire: You can also simply drink a liter of water before going to sleep, bye bye hangover then as well :P .

  19. Matt said:

    sponsoredreviews is good…

  20. Jennifer said:

    I made it this week. Now, watch you don’t get your 30, like you got last week without me. LOL…

    April 27th, 2007 at 1:32 pm
  21. Ginene said:

    Yeah I heard of blogger wave too. Have ya read about the contest in the past where 2 bloggers did over 101 posts in a day. I was going to make a post about that.

    Looks like you are more than halfway to your goal of 30!

  23. Neil said:

    I agree with the RSS feeds thing. I keep 40 in my newsreader most of the time. Helps you to keep up to date with a lot of blogs.

    I just took part in one of those increase your RSS subscriber contests and it boosted it by a little bit.

    Wow! What a cool idea. I wish I had thought about this idea. Can I “borrow” your idea? I will definitely give you credit on my blog.

    April 27th, 2007 at 2:26 pm
  26. Matt said:

    sure sophia, as i wrote above:

    Comment Friday’s a new concept to me. But it sounds like a great idea. Looks like I’m #27. You’re almost there.

  28. delani said:

    Re: hangovers – I generally feel hungover by 5pm on Friday, so adding alcohol doesn’t make much of a difference. :p

    On another note, has anyone done an experiment with a comment train/exchange? This is a similar idea, but without the reciprocal factor.

    @ Matt

    None of the advertisers I contacted from over a month ago have even DECLINED OR APPROVED my offer. I did one deal through sponsored reviews and that was a review of their site, they do pay on time even.

    Blogsvertise & PayPerPost are great Especially PPP. :D

    WooHOO I am posting number 30!!!! Yeah!

    ooops I nearly missed this again. On the avoiding a hangover it’s not quite that but on Crypt Hunter there’s a guide to out-drinking your opponent – check it out here – cool over 30 comments already!!

    Maybe we should start putting a theme up for the weekly comment day? What does everyone think or should it just be up to the first person to declare a topic!

    April 27th, 2007 at 3:43 pm
  32. Psycho Dude said:

    A theme could be nice, but of course you could risk some people from joining in on the commenting then because they would have the feeling of not having enough experience in the subject. Not realizing that it would be open for anybody to speak the fear of saying something which might be seen as stupid holds them back.

    And lol @ Crypt Hunter, every now and then I check back on that site and it is always a blast :P . The most ridiculous guides are placed there, lol.

  33. Bonnie said:

    Wow! You are already up to 33 comments and it’s barely Friday evening. Congrats!

    April 27th, 2007 at 6:08 pm
  34. Ginene said:

    As long as its a simple theme.

    April 27th, 2007 at 6:26 pm
  35. Matt said:

    I’ve thought about having a theme or topic per friday, but as mentioned, i dont want people to think they have to stay on that topic, or not participate because they dont care much for the topic

    as it stands, most topics are introduced early in the discussion, and people can respond to that or not. Today hangovers, a few fridays ago, the inlaws lol

    Thanks for the great info on driving traffic to your site. As a new blogger I am looking for ideas to get more traffic. I feel I have something important to say, and good info to share. I just need to be able to get the word out. Thanks again

  37. Greg said:

    I don’t think it’s still Friday. Maybe the server will be in a different time zone or nobody will notice. Everyone’s probably drunk by now anyway.

    April 27th, 2007 at 10:26 pm
  38. Greg said:

    Woohoo, P.S.T.!

    April 27th, 2007 at 10:28 pm
  39. Lee said:

    I think it would have to be a very broad theme – something like “what makes you smile?” etc

    I just found your website. It is great. Anyways, what about college football this year. Who is going to be the ciderella team? Boise State again? BYU? Notre Dame? What about Florida are they going to repeat in football? I thought I would make coversion since my blog is about active duty military money and matters.
