Show The Love

All of us blog writers take time out of our busy days to share our hearts in hopes that we will help someone else along in their walk. And it can be discouraging when you don't get comments for days on end. You begin to wonder if anyone is reading. Is it worth sharing your heart day after day if no one is being edified by what you are sharing.

Comments on a person's blog let them know that it IS worth their time! I know that our reading time is precious too. And that means we don't always have time to comment on the blogs that we read. I know I am just as guilty of that. But let's try to take some time this month to comment on those blogs that we really do read everyday and appreciate and let them know how much we appreciate them sharing.

For every blog you comment on, come back here and share the blog address of the article you commented on. Every time you comment on a blog and let me know about it by posting here, you will be entered into a drawing for the book SPEED CLEANING by Jeff Campbell. This book is WONDERFUL for those of us moms who just don't have enough time in the day to clean!

I will be keeping this post at the top of my blog so you can find it easily to leave your comments for entries into the contest. AND for every person you tell about this contest who come here and post an entry, if they mention YOUR name, you BOTH are entered into the contest! So you get an entry just for letting people know about the contest! If you advertise on your blog and thirty people come here and post an entry, you have 30 entries!!! The last comment for entry will be Feb 28 at midnight EST. The drawing will take place on March 1 and will be announced on this blog.

Have fun and SHOW SOME LOVE!!!!

Just wanted to let you know that I posted your contest on my blog. What a fun idea!

If you want to be lifted up today with some good reads, head over to Iris' blog for Thankful Thursday.

Don't miss out on lots of frugal ideas during Frugal Friday at Biblical Womanhood.

I hate to say it, but I post so many comments that I will never keep up with linking them here. I even write comments on my OWN blog in response to others.

I will say though, that it is a great idea and a good reminder to strengthen our bonds with our friends-after all, they ARE a part of our lives now! I guess you can use this one entry to add me to your list but I will have to be EXTREMELY lucky to win! ;-)

Hey Paula,
Just wanted to say great idea! Of course I don't need to be in the drawing for I already have the book lol. But I did want to at least post a comment to tell you this is a great idea and I love checking in on your blog and reading it.
Hugs
Brenda

Hi Paula,
Thank you for your visit today :) Our family learning is really just doing all of our homeschooling together...we do all the learning as a group and on the same topic. The only separate times are Math since they are on obvious different grade levels. The Bible, History, Copywork, Science and even our Language Arts are done together. Our curriculum choice really has made this possible.

I am new to reading your blog, and I am enjoying it very much! Thanks for all the great ideas!

This is a great idea! I was recently trying to figure out how to list the links to the blogs I love on my xanga!

I have a couple that I'd like to share--I'll copy and paste them in another comment!

Now, I consider this one a combo--blog and crafts for kids! They're on a little sabbatical right now, but check out their archives for some great ideas!
