I saw this on another blogging support site I follow.

They take all participating bloggers and randomly pick one. Then all other bloggers post a comment on their most recent post. It could be an in depth comment or just a simple "great post!". Whatever you feel like writing.

From those that left comments, you'd pick randomly again. This way, the same person won't get pick again.

I've noticed, people post on my blogs once someone else has already. Maybe this will encourage page views, Google linkage and what we all want most....readers!

Post here if you are interested. If it's OK with the Blog Azeroth moderators I will happily organize it.

If you want to organize something like that, I don't see any reason why you couldn't :) It would be a fun way for newer bloggers to get to know each other.

Great! If you are interested in participating post your name and your blog's name here.

I'd love to be included! I always try to post comments semi-regularly just to let people know that someone really is reading and taking something from it. I know personally when I mention a post I've written, I have so many friends and guildies say "Oh yeah I read that a few days ago already." Well, I didn't know that because you never commented or said anything, and I don't really take site stats/views for much. If you seldomly receive comments, you start to feel like you are maybe wasting your time.

So sign me up!

I suggest you start a new thread with the dates of the event, a bit more details on the process and the invitation to sign up in the first post. When that invitation is a few posts down, it gets lost.

Push advertisement too. Not everyone reads BA so post about it on your blog (if you haven't already) and write about it on twitter. Once you have a thread up, I'll back you up with the BA twitter account.

Awesome! Thank you for the forum etiquette advise. I've never organized people virtually before & I'd appreciate any advise.

No problem at all :)

Have you thought of a name for your event? You might attract more attention with an event name like "Blog Circle" (or anything else that suggest community and bonding) than "Want more comments"
