Not sure i'm a big fan of NaComLeavMo so far.

It's taking me AGES to get through the commenting - especially when I try to keep up with my usual blog reads. How does anyone spend this long on line each day??!!

AND - to add insult to injury - i didn't get one comment yesterday. The 217 commentors must have been elsewhere!!

I'm not sure i'm reaping what i sew, but perhaps i should be more selfless...!

I'll keep going - until my work deadlines mean i haven't as much time to join in.

On a less grumpy note - i had lunch with one of my Editors today at a really, really great vegetarian restaurant in Primrose Hill called Manna. I was amazed how good it was and not at all hemp wearing knit your own underpants. Well worth a visit.

I'm with you. I never thought it would be so hard to leave 5 comments a day! The notion of being an iron commentor -- Bwaa haa haa!

I'm returning your comment from NCLM and I'll be the first to comment today. Sorry you aren't getting any "hits." I haven't had quite as many as I would have liked either. Hope things are going well for you today.

Portia - I'm not doing the NaComLeavMo....but I'm sorry I missed your blog yesterday especially with the wonderful review of your trip to Mallorca. I'll go leave a comment on that post too.

It is difficult to find the time to read blogs, comment, and write our own blogs.....and earn a living at work!

Man, I was sorry to see your comment that we won't be getting married--*sigh. You are breaking my heart, Portia ;)

You know I love ya anyway!

Are you in the middle of the list? I just ask because I am at the bottom and have had a few comments - although frankly there ain't much to read let alone comment on on my blog at the moment! I am having a tough time commenting back - I suppose I tend to comment at least 3 times a day anyway so that helps.

Glad Mallorca was lovely despite the weather. It has been rubbish here too. Glad also that IvIG was unnecessary.

I'm reading!! Just not enough time to comment with all the packing!

I'm reading and delurking here! I am glad you had an enjoyable lunch!

Oh yay! You are the first person with male factor morphology issues that I have come across, that has actually conceived! I mean, I'm sorry it took you so many tries, but it does give me hope--you know always comparing my situation to others.

Congrats, and best of luck to you in your journey.

I stressed myself out with the Commentathon last year and knew there was no way in hell I could do it this time. I will, however, try to come and leave a nice warm fuzzy comment on your site many times this month just to remind you how much someone loves you! :-)

I'm from NCLM. I've wondered where the commenters were, but I've started seeing an increase in visits and comments. With only 30 days and the number of blogs there will be some that you won't read/comment if you only do 5 per day.

It is time consuming. But I have enjoyed reading new blogs I may not have found otherwise. Here's hoping to many more comments in the upcoming weeks.
