    It’s Day 24, and we’re in the home stretch!

    Before we get to today’s task: we’ve been visiting your blogs, and it’s incredible to read your great posts, see how slick your blogs look, and see the engagement. You’ve got comment threads and follower counts way ahead of the rest of the new-blogger pack — kudos!

    Today, let’s up that engagement even more, by reading and commenting on a few blogs that are participating the challenge you picked on Day 22. (If you didn’t join one, no worries — there’s a task for you, too.) Check out the Zero to Hero main page for the skinny on what you’ll be up to today.

    Use this space as a place to ask questions and seek feedback from fellow bloggers, or just to talk about blogging, why you’re here, and how your month is going.

    Please refrain from posting links to your blog unless you’re seeking feedback — this is a place for discussion. Irrelevant comments and spammy links will be deleted. Instead, give your posts the “zerotohero” tag to enable other participants to find you.

    The Daily Post has a weekly open thread on Sundays called “Community Pool,” for peer feedback. If you’re looking for general feedback on your blog or feedback unrelated to this challenge, please visit that thread.

    Hey, where is everyone today?

    I completed today’s challenge, but I didn’t write about it. I did however write this. Let me know what you think!

    Hey there. I’m way behind you. I just did my day 7 post. :D

    Just joined the Speakeasy Event. Still fiddling around with the posts of the past. Waiting for the new Speakeasy prompts tomorrow. English is not my mother tongue. But I will try …
    My last post was yesterday: a concert review of a classical concert with Munich Philharmonics and conductor Philippe Jordan.
    Nice weekend for everyone.

    I’m all over the place with this zero to hero business, but today I wrote this and I’m finally feeling more on track with this. I have yet to join any events or post a roundup, though I’m working on the roundup and the Twisted Mixtape Tuesday event sounds promising. Are there any recipe or food events that anyone knows of? I bake too often for my own good, something like that might be right up my alley.

    Commented on momus news and guerillamom. Two great stories in the event I did choose.

    I know this is kinda late and I should have said this yesterday, but help!! Most of the blogging events were, “every Sunday” or something along the lines of that and yesterday wasn’t Sunday; tomorrow is.

    So this is the first challenge I’ve completed on the right day in a while. I post weekly to two blog events – so I put my post up this morning and commented around tonight now that the kids are in bed.

    I linked up to Considering’s Ten Things of Thankful weekly all weekend blog hop. I’ve been doing it for a few months now, and I think it’s helped keep myself a bit more positive (briefly: you list ten things from the past week you are thankful for).

    I’ve tried about 5-6 different events since I started blogging, but this one and Twisted Mixed Tape Tuesday are the two that have stuck. Wonderful hosts and communities.

    Off to do a bit more bloggy zero to hero catch up (I think I might finally get around to a blogroll next….)

    @lunacooler, they’re listed by start day — most events are weekly, but there are events starting most every day of the week.

    @babygatesdown, thanks for sharing! Good to know which events are fun and well-run.

    Off to read and comment… Came here first, as I wanted to complete my post and be able to relax while reading other blog posts. (Out of town, so out of my routine.)

    I did not do this challenge either, though I have done blog events in the past, but I wanted to share this comment thread. It’s an over-18 thing. I had a comment, I posted about it, and I have been debating with that commenter since, with comments from others. It has helped me understand better. I may get a new post out of it.

    I did this twice, one on my chronic pain blog, I entered a challenge on anger, I thought my post was ok, not too bad, but woohoo, I went back to the challengers site as suggested here to look through other entries and I was simply astounded by the quality of writing and emotional content, flabbergasted puts it mildly and felt rather embarrassed at my entry lol.

    I actually re-blogged one that was a poem, poems seem to be very popular, not that I can write poetry.

    I also did a challenge here on my eclectic site, was waiting for Sunday to come when it started again, I have had very good feedback from the person who set the challenge as she connected with the subject matter personally, so personally it was nice for me to talk to another mother in a similar situation :-)
