Okay, I've been thinking about all the things that made it easy for me to keep up with this fabulous Challenge last year. I need simplicity because of the shortage of time I have with four demanding kids underfoot. As a mom, I tend to find short cuts and augment my time. Aside from exposing my secret, here's another thing to add to its ease (and I hope it helps you too!)
First, I open my list of A to Z bloggers. Going down the list, and by hovering my mouse over each blogger link with my left button down, I drag it up to the browser tab. Do that for as many bloggers as you plan to visit that day/session. Now, I whip out my timer and set it for fifteen minutes, so that's fifteen blogs for me. Yes, it takes me a minute per blog--I don't frivol away my time because it's precious to me!
Important: Do not hit "publish" for any of your comments until after your timer rings. After it goes off, then go back and publish all your comments.
Note: For the pop-up window comments requiring the anti-spam code--you do not need to hit "publish", rather, just hit enter. (A time saver thing I've learned).
Do you have any blogging short cuts you'd like to share with us?
