- cans for comments -

In a follow up to my post about leaving comments on blogs, I'm jumping on a band wagon...but this wagon has a really good cause...Cans for Comments! I originally heard about it from Amber, here. If you haven't heard of Cans for Comments, it's an awesome cause that bloggers can participate in during the holiday season!



Here's how it works...

From December 9 through December 19, for every comment that is left on my blog, I will donate one can of food to our local food bank. For every new follower I get, I will donate two cans of food.
That's it, easy peasy! And it's a win-win...canned food will go to a great cause, and I will get to read some awesome comments!

And how about linking up with me and promoting this Cans for Comments drive on your blog?
You can even grab the link code here to allow your followers to link up from your blog as well!

Come on, let's get some hungry people fed this season!



-Here is a tip to make it easier for people to leave comments on your blog-

Consider disabling the CAPTCHA option...
The CAPTCHA box is the box of jumbled letters that verifies that you are not an automated spammer while leaving a comment. Spam scares a lot of people, and many people think anything to keep it away from their blogs is a good thing. However, depending on the number of readers you have, you may not ever have to worry about spam comments left on your blog. I didn't get any spam comments for quite a long time. Only recently have I received a few but Blogger always catches them and has never posted them. You can always choose to moderate your comments before they are published as well, if you are worried about spam.
Disabling the CAPTCHA's makes it a lot easier, and less time consuming for someone to leave you a comment.
(directions to disable CAPTCHA can be found here )

This is such a wonderful idea!! It feels great to donate and help others. Last week I dropped a box of food off under the samaritan tree at the kids school. This week I'm leaving wrapped gifts under another tree. Good for you, this is awesome!!
