We have decided as a team to join the Comment Challenge 2013 once again as hosted by Mother Reader and Lee Wind. Click here to check out the FAQs and click here to sign up – it’s never too late to join the party!

The objective is as follows:

For 21 days in a row (from today, January 11 through Thursday January 31) leave at least five comments on different blogs a day.  Five a day, and research shows that in 21 days you’ll have a new habit. (And elementary school math shows that you’ll have left 105 comments – but we’ll give you one day off, so the goal is 100 comments!)

This shall serve as our running update for comments we have written to blogger-friends and fellow kidlit enthusiasts. Kind of like our unique tracking system. It worked for us last year, should work for us this year too.
