Bloggers Commenting Back

List is still open to enter,
comments are closed on this page
due to an influx of spam.

Basically, this is a group of people who make it a common routine to reply to comments on their own blog and go the extra mile to visit that commenter’s blog and comment on one of their posts in return. One-sided conversation is no fun! It is a way to get more comments, meet new people, and actually have bookish conversations, which was the reason a lot of us started blogging in the first place!

If you are entering your blog, please make sure you try your best to do both:

-Replying to comments on your own blog

-Visiting and commenting back on blogs that have commented on yours

(If your blog has been deleted or inactive since 2014 with no hiatus message, it may be removed from the list in order to keep it up to date. If at any time you wish to remove your name from the list, please email me.)

If you are taking the pledge to do both, you can (NOT mandatory) add the button somewhere on your site and enter your blog in the linky list below so others can find you!

    Genius idea!!! I’m huge on commenting, I always enjoy sending the love back. Will def put this button on my blog! :D

  2. Jeann @ Happy Indulgence

    Wow this is a fantastic idea Alise, commenting on other blogs is just something I have started doing and this group sounds perfect to interact with other bloggers that are keen on doing the same. I am definitely going to put it on my blog! For some reason I can’t see the linky list though?

    • Alise

      Yeah, that’s my fault. Somehow I edited it out by have no idea why. Fixed it now, though! Sorry about that!

  3. Giselle

    Awesome idea! I wish I could add it to my blog! I always comment back to all my commenters’ blogs (or at least 90% of them) but I just don’t have time to go comment back on their blog AND reply to comments on my blog (unless a question was asked or something like that). Just commenting back takes about 1-3 hours every day; with and average of 25-30 comments per post I have to pick one or the other and most would prefer getting a visit and comment back than a reply :) Plus it gives them views on top of a comment and often new followers from those same commenters. I also just moved to WP but for blogger blogs no one gets notified of a reply on their comment and most people never check back so I found it was more a waste of time that could have been better spent commenting on blogs instead. Anyways, just my unsolicited 2 cents :) Hats off to good ideas! :)

    • Alise

      It’s tough trying to do both, I agree! Especially when you have so much other things to do. I’m glad you agree, I would also like to know the time I am spending commenting might result in a comment back. That was one of the reasons I switched to WordPress too, the comments. Blogger should have some kind of option to notify people. Thanks :)

  4. Kaitlin

    Thank you for this wonderful idea! I’ve added my blog to the linky and added the button to my blog. :)

  5. Sarah

    So glad I came across this… What an awesome idea! Will be posting the button on my blog… Somewhere,lol.

  6. Amir

    Awesome, awesome idea! I do make it a point to reply to comments on our blog and let my cousins know if they have comments on their reviews too. I also love visiting and commenting on other blogs who visit and I follow so I love the idea of this. Button being added on our sidebar as we speak :)

    Thanks for creating something like this!

  7. Janina @ Synchronized Reading

    I think this is a fantastic idea for those who comment back :) I’m glad I found out about this through Leigh’s blog! When someone comments on my blog it just makes me so happy! So I always try to visit their blog even if it’s a day late, I make a point to comment back.

    Fantastic idea, Alise!

    Linking up :)

  8. Lance

    Hi. Just signed up. I have had my blog for a couple months and am trying to get some more followers and blogging tips. Making a few friends along the way would be great too. This looks great!

  9. Berls @ Fantasy is More Fun

    This is such an amazing idea – I know I always respond to comments and visit bloggers who took the time to comment on my page, it’s nice to know there’s so many others out there who feel the same way. Going to go add this button to my blog somewhere!

  10. Cyn

    Great idea! It’s always nice to get a visit/comment back. And it definitely is a great way to make new friends! Thanks for sharing (:

  11. blodeuedd

    Very cool :)
    I always comment back, well except when it comes to giveaways, cos most of the ones there do not have blogs

  12. Jessica @ The Three Bookateers

    Hi Everyone!

    My name is Jessica and I am 1/3 of The Three Bookateers. We write reviews on YA/NA novels :) I just came across this site and I think it is a wonderful idea! I love receiving feedback and comments about my reviews, so I completely LOVE this idea.

  13. manda | elfswood

    What an amazing idea!
    I don’t always have a lot of time to blog, but when I do, I like to browse through people who have commented on my blog (I think it’s a great way to find great blogs I might not have known of before). Hope it’s not too late to join the fun!

  14. Trish @ Between the Lines

    Great idea. I try really hard to do both but taking the pledge will make me even more aware of how good it is to share the love. We all love comments so it’s well worth the extra effort that it takes :) Well done on spreading the love for comments!

  15. Sophia Lin

    I usually try visiting when I can, though that’s not always possible, lol, since I don’t have access to the internet at home.
    Though I do need to start visiting more on blogs. But then there are times when I don’t exactly have a single word to say on a blog post and I don’t exactly believe in being very biased and just say it’s a great review… but I guess that’s me. O_o

    • Alise

      No, I totally understand. Sometimes I’ll go find a really old post on a blog and comment because that’s what I find interesting. It’s not about forcing comments, but encouraging them xD

  16. Jorie

    Hallo, Hallo!

    I am loving this so much, I wrote up a proper post to explain why I am so stoked to have discovered it!! I should have held off putting my blog address in the linky before I posted the post, as then the person who clicked on it could have been taken here directly!

    • Alise

      Ah! You are awesome! Thanks so much for creating a post about it, I’ll check it out right now!

  17. diamond Dee @ Dee's Reads

    This is such a fantastic idea!!! :) I definitely always strive to do both those things’s one of the most fun things about book blogging — those convos are priceless.

    Added my link, will try to add graphic in sometime soon!

  18. Addie

    I think the best part of starting a book blog was the entire book community – which has been so so incredible. Talking books is one of the good things in life. Right after chocolate :D
    So kudos on starting this idea – its revolutionary!!

  19. Katarina @ Notes on Novels

    That is a lovely pledge :) I’m happy to take part. I’ll install the logo on my blog right away and hopefully it’ll inspire other bloggers to pledge aswell.

    Cheers, Katarina :)

  20. Victoria (aka Zemfirka)

    This is great! I always try to reply to comments and comment on other blogs I visit. I know being a blogger myself that it’s very nice to see people commenting and generating new discussions on posts. So I think this is an awesome pledge & thank you for sharing this! :)

  21. Lupdilup

    I love this idea!! I saw the button before but I though it was all YA blogs, I see the mix now.
    Awesome! Great thinking :)

  22. Cait

    I just found this (through another blog, actually) and I think it’s a spectacular idea! I’m going to put the button up and also post about it.

    Also, new follower. :)

  23. Munira

    It’s really a great idea! I always try to reply to the comments on my blog and love to share my thoughts on others blogs as well. Hope your effort goes a long way :)

  24. Goldie

    Thank you for this! It’s nice to find other bloggers who comment back. It’s frustrating at times to be ‘social’ and find that you’re ignored -_-

  25. Angel

    Love this! It’s always nice to know that blog owners take the time to read all the comments and reply back when possible. Just added my new born blog up there and hope to meet more cool people like you all!

  26. Kaylaizabeth

    In the last month or so I have been pretty good about going to other blogs and commenting! I used to be terribly and just focus on the comments on my blog. I love this idea. Signed up and button is up at my blog :)

  27. Tara Therese

    Awesome idea! I love it when bloggers comment back because when they don’t, I worry I somehow offended them. I’m a paranoid person, always was and always will be.

    I always try to respond to comments but I don’t always comment on the person’s blog. I’ll try my very best, though! Not sure if I can keep it up when I go to uni … fingers crossed

  28. Deyse

    This idea is amazing! Bookish conversations is all that I wanted getting into the book blog thing.
    But I don’t know where to put the image of the campain on my blog, I use wordpress if someone could help me.
    Best wishes guys!

  29. Izzy

    What an absolutely wonderful idea! Brilliant work! So important to do both of these things- not only is it good for others but really makes you a part of such a special community.

  30. Lianne

    I think this is a really wonderful idea! This is a perfect way to get along and share each others’ thoughts. Thanks so much for this! :)

  31. Arthur Keneyd

    Hi there to all, the contents existing at this site are actually amazing for people experience,
    well, keep up the good work fellows.

  32. Cora @ TeaPartyPrincess

    I always comment back, it’s common courtesy. And if it’s about all things books then even better.

    It’s great that this is still active with new people signing up.

  33. Maryline VP

    This is such a brilliant idea! Love it! And so true: bookish conversations is exactly why we (I) stared blogging in the first place!
    M’s Bookshelf is now part of the list!
    Happy reading! xx M.

  34. Ebony

    Great idea! Although I’ve always done this, I think it’s nice to take this pledge to keep me motivated!

  35. Marisa

    Hi above person is me and I changed the url so if you can remove link 187 (Marisa @ Marsbookshelf) and keep link 188 (Marisa @ Books Beyond Measure) that would be awesome!

  36. Deniz

    Just stumbled upon this site… I LOVE it! I have just started my own book site and continue to work on it. Hopefully I can expand and succeed in it! =)

  37. Jordan

    I just moved my small blog to WordPress and am still trying to find new people to follow. This is a grand idea!!
