Now Back to Our Regularly Scheduled Program (Almost)

Shew - I'm done. Loved participating in ICLW week and I've found so many great new blogs to follow. On the downside, I'm behind on some of my favorite blogs and, well, ahem, actual posts of my own.

For those not familiar, ICLW has an "Iron Commenter" status you receive if you go to every blog on the list and leave a comment on at least one posting. This is not as easy as it sounds, especially if you are like me and make sure you read an entire post. Some very long. Usually the great ones. God forbid you feel the need to flip around on a blog to find "just the right post". Yea, I did that a couple of times.

But I did it. Posted a comment (or two or three) on every single one of them. Yay for me! It's a little thing, but sometimes completing a task like this makes me feel awesome. Just think: I had an extra 44 minutes to spare before the midnight deadline. For some reason I'm having vague flashbacks of college...

  1. Ooh well done iron commenter! I'm impressed :-) x

  2. Visiting from the dec list! Can't wait to read your blog :) Yay for iron status

  3. wow!! i'm impressed :) awesome job!

  4. Congratulations! This was my first time participating in ICLW and I accepted the challenge of Iron Commenter as well. It is definitely not very easy, as I am like you, and usually read several posts to try to get to know the person. It just didn't seem right to leave a generic comment. I made it, but it wasn't easy.

    Also, I just want to say thank you for me being one of the new blogs you are following. That means a lot, especially for a brand new blogger :)

    1. You have a GREAT blog!!! Love it!
      I agree on the generic comment. Congrats on your challenge as well!
