August Challenge: You link, I comment!

Each month this year, I plan to give myself some sort of challenge, to try to improve how I'm doing in that particular area.  In January, I did the Clean Out the Cupboards Challenge to use up the excess food in my pantry and spend as little as possible at the stores.  Last month, I did the Drugstore Bootstrap Challenge to build up my Extra Care Bucks from CVS and my Register Rewards from Walgreens.  In March and April, I challenged myself to Give Back...One Coupon at a Time.  And May and June were Mango Months.

I took off July, but now I'm back with an all-new challenge for myself - this one isn't about frugality, but about blogging.

As you may know, I run three blogger linkups each week.  Fortune Follies Tuesday is for links to blog giveaways.  Wednesday Weekly Shopping is for links to great shopping trips you've had or deals you've gotten, and Frugal Food Thursday is for frugal recipes.

I am blessed to have many bloggers link up at each of these each week.  When I first started Wednesday Weekly Shopping, I made sure to visit each blog, read the post, and leave a comment.  But lately I haven't been finding the time to do that, and I'm sure I'm missing out on some great posts.  And I've rarely checked out a great recipe or entered a contest.

So my challenge for myself this month is to visit every blog that links up to one of the three linkups.  For Wednesday Weekly Shopping and Frugal Food Thursday, I'll leave a comment.  And for Fortune Follies Tuesday, I will enter the giveaway at least once, provided that I am eligible to win.  (If not, I'll leave a comment elsewhere in the blog.)

Hopefully this challenge will lead to better and friendlier blogging habits for me!

What are you challenging yourself with this month?  Leave a comment below!

What an awesome goal. I sometimes take part in the link-ups and I know how hard it can be to visit each blog.
