BLOG BLITZ 2.0




If you have been a member of the BLOG BLITZ team, hosted by the compassionate and inspiring blogger DL Hammons, then you have experienced the joy giving blog love to brighten someone's day. Commenting on a random blog on Blitz Day has been a rewarding way of building community for me.

On the original BLOG BLITZ post, DL asks the question: what would it be like if the support, encouraging nature, and community spirit of the blogosphere were ever focused on a single blogger? Over the last year and half, 83 bloggers have experienced that mutually beneficial feeling of both giving and receiving a comment Blitz.

DL has revamped the list and encourages all those who are willing to join the team (or to rejoin the team) with the sole purpose of brightening a fellow blogger's day to add your name to the list, and proudly display the BLOG BLITZ banner on their own blog.

To DL Hammons, thank you for coordinating this encouraging event. To all those who have joined the team and commented on or nominated members for a BLOG BLITZ

 thank you for your community spirit.

I signed up for the new one. Can't believe someone thought it was all about getting followers.

L. Diane Wolfe said...

It was a good idea that he revamp the list.

I sent you an email this morning - you were the winner of the Dragon Hunt.

Donna K. Weaver said...

What a great idea. Ditto what Alex said.

DEZMOND said...

such a lovely idea that is! With me always returning all comments, it would take weeks to finish the task LOL

Christine Rains said...

The Blog Blitz is a wonderful and amazing concept. I'm happy to be part of the team, and I hope we can bring a smile and encourage several more people.

Nick Wilford said...

Happy to sign up again. Love a good Blitz!

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

The letter to DL made me sad. To me the blitz is about making someone else feel good and that makes me feel good.

Pat Hatt said...

Wow, what a douche who sent the letter. Bloggers like that should be ignored anyway.

Al Diaz said...

I signed up again this morning. Excellent idea of DL to start all over again. :)

Hi human, Donna,

My human, Gary and I, got the email notification from DL about the changes.

I don't think we will get involved this time. Even though the good human, DL's intentions were noble, I noticed too many folks were just visiting a site and making note of the Blog Blitz and not anything about the actual blog pawst, sorry, post. Sadly, I found that most disrespectful.

Pawsitive wishes and all the best to those who get involved.

Penny :)

Shannon Lawrence said...

I do love this idea. I haven't joined yet, but will have to check it out. I worry that I'll screw up and not visit someone on time, which is why I've hesitated.

J.L. Campbell said...

The Blog Blitz is a wonderful initiative and it doesn't take much out of us to visit the 'victims'.

dolorah said...

Shannon: there is no way to screw up love.

Joy: nope, doesn't take much to visit and leave a comment.

Mark Koopmans said...
