Kidlitosphere Blog Comment Challenge

Almost three weeks ago I discovered Kidlitosphere and the Comment Challenge. Kidlitosphere is a community of people who blog about children's and young adult literature. The challenge was to post comments on 100 blog sites within a 3 week period, which amounts to around 5 comments per day.

It sounded easy enough. I had the time--I was away from home, and since I was limited to what I could get done on my to-do list, I signed up.

What great blog sites I discovered! Poets and children's writers, book blogs, interviews, reviews. Connecting with other children's writers was never so easy. I kept up with my 5 comments per day.

Until the arrival of Baby Luke. Family will always be most important to me. And grandchildren are a precious gift. Blogging took a back seat.

I came home, back to my perpetual to-do lists. But I had discovered that networking on the web for children's authors is amazing.

I caught up with my blog comments at one point. I'm not sure that I'll make it to 100 before the end of the challenge but I will continue to check back on a regular basis.

Now my challenge is how to fit blog time into my writing time, family time and everything else in my life. I'm thinking that if I set aside one hour on my writing days for networking, that could work. Discipline certainly has to apply. It would be so easy to lose track of time.

Any comments on time management here would be welcome!

I do hope no one starts a Twitter challenge :)
