Welcome to Boost Your Blog in 100 Days! I’m so excited you have chosen to take this journey with me and my dear challenge hostesses! I hope to get to meet you a little bit along the way via facebook, twitter, pinterest, and your blogs. My goal for this 100 days is to spruce up our blogs together and kick our usage and understanding of Social Media into high gear.
So how did you do on Day 3? How did checking your stats go? Did you have trouble finding them? Were they higher or lower than you expected? Do you have goals to increase your stats? Having blog goals and plans can be vital to growing your blog and becoming profitable. If you haven’t already heard about #learntoblog check it out on youtube! Tons of valuable information!
Today’s Boost Your Blog challenge is to comment on 10 different blogs. Read a blog post that sounds interesting to you and provide a thoughtful comment of 2-4 sentences if possible. I will be providing you with 10 blogs each day during this challenge to comment on. You may also wish to follow some bloggers on their other social media platforms as well, but this is not required during the first 10 day challenge.
Commenting on other’s blogs will provide you will back-links to your blog. Creating these links to your blog will help with SEO by lowering your Alexa rating and possibly boosting where your blog lands on SERP. Thoughtful comments may peak readers interests from those blogs or from the blog author’s themselves thus getting traffic and comments in return.
Remember to leave a quality comment for each of the 10 bloggers. I did my best to try to bring quality blogs that welcome comments and the chance to meet other bloggers during this 100 day challenge.

Thank you for the tip on the youtube videos. I’m going to have a listen while getting housework done. This entire challenge has been really helping me to sit down and think about my goals for my blog, and where I want it to go. Thank you for all of the inspiration and getting this arranged!
I can imagine that you’ve had quite a bit of work to do in order to get this all done!
I am finding this much more difficult today than the past days of the challenge. I am not sure why the difference. Whatever the reason I will persevere.
Awesome blogs today!! I visited each one ♥
Another day down. Now time for me to try to get other things done, lol.

I will have to look for the youtube series. I don’t know why I don’t think to turn to youtube more often. Thank you for the tip!
Today went well, now to catch up since I was unexpectedly called out of town, i’m behind. I have a dumb question though — some blogs I can’t figure out how to comment on? What do I do when I can’t find where the comment section is?
A variety of blog platforms plus a variety of plug-ins can make it a little tricky. Here’s a link to help you find where the comments section might be found: http://darraghdoyle.blogspot.com/2008/05/how-to-comment-on-blog-beginners-guide.html

Hi–I’m the red-headed step-child of the 100 day challenge–as in I’m devotedly following along even though I was too late to enter! You really brought the goods on the blogs today. I loved all of these!

Just a quick question when you say “Commenting on other’s blogs will provide you will back-links to your blog” does that blog not have to have something like Comment Love installed on it to be provided with the back-link? I’ve been to many blogs where you only type in your name and email and then leave a comment. How do you get a back link from those blogs? Sorry, I’m just trying to understand how the back-links are established.
Glad to be joining in on this journey! I’m unfortunately a few days behind on the comment love, but I will be heading back through the previous days to catch up. I look forward to finding some new blogs to follow!
