Blog Swinging


Do you ever do this? Swing from blog to blog because another name on a blog you were leaving a comment on sounded interesting? I did an insomniac experiment and I hopped from blog to blog randomly leaving messages. The funny thing is that from a random blog in Japan, I found a comment from one of my blogger friends, so I went around the globe and bumped into a familiar post. Next time I will do more constructive work, like cleaning the house, however, this was fun.

I'm a professional swinger but I have not gone global. Wow. Out of context that is quite the sentence.

That's very similar to Kevin Bacon's 'Six Degrees Theory'. Yes, I've done and it's a lot of fun.

Greetings from London.

Yoli said...

Oh I was thinking of Kevin too when I did that!!!!

kerri said...

The housework will always be there when I'm finished, LOL!!

no duermo, apenas unas horas al día, ... cansa, pero igual me reconforta aquello de estar viviendo el doble, al ganarle unas horas al suen>O.

Yes...I also like clicking that "next blog" link on the top navbar and blog surf. I am now officially blog obsessed thanks to you!

Is that what they call it? I do it from time to time. We should do it in a string and go to 100 blogs or something one day. And just decide to comment on each one. You up for it?

Gillian said...

Yes...I think that is most true! Blog hopping is a wonderful thing...choose one commenter, then go to one of theirs, then one of theirs...and so on down the line.
Cool! and no, housework can wait.

If someone I don't recognize leaves a comment on my blog, I just HAVE to check out theirs and comment, and then I recognize other people who comment on their blogs so then I follow them too. Those red threads keep swinging in the adoption blogs, anyway!

I am a great swinger . Imagine landing on your blog and finding a post on swinging ! Now is that coincidence or what ? In this run, from Kolkata to London to Marrakech to you .. quite a journey

Andrea said...

I was one of the lucky blogs you stumbled on and your kind words made my night. Now you have a new friend and blog reader!

Annie Coe said...

Yes, I have done it, that is how I found you :-). And it is indeed fun. Wish I had more time to swing.

Lisa B. said...

Much more fun than cleaning the house...that's for sure!

Thanks for swinging by my blog! I thought maybe you were a new shadow shooter...maybe not...but I see a fellow Obama supporter!! Yea!! I too am very proud and oh so very very happy!!! I can't wait to see what each new day brings:D

Please to make your acquaintance!!

rosemary said...

Yea, it's addictive and I should probably seek help. It remains my favorite way to kill time though.

nataJane said...

I love it when someone who has swung by my blog has their own that is worth a swing :)

Last week I found someone in my city of Tyler, Texas by way of Paris Parfait in Paris, France. Thought that was rather interesting.

I have to tell you that your blog has created a Louis Armstrong fan in my daughter. Last night while she was drinking her bottle, she became mesmerized, rocking to and fro, and when I clicked off the blog, she put her bottle down in protest, stared fixedly into my eyes and did her little move that means "dance" over and over again until I put the blog back on. She danced through three rounds of Louis Armstrong before she'd allow me to move on to something else. Hey, at least the girl has taste!

It's funny that this post was your last one written, because that is exactly how I got HERE! I came from Donna's MSN 106 Yahoo group, clicked on the first post there, saw you on her comments, and ended up here. I love "blog swinging", except sometimes I forget where I started and can't figure out how to get there.

P.S. I clicked on your name because I had seen it before, I think on one of my blogger's friend lists

I had to remove that last comment because it made no sense. I really must proofread before I comment. :)

M.Kate said...

Definitely more fun than housework. And for every blog visited, it is whole new world, we learn something new no matter what. Hope you have a good weekend :D

seth said...

Great photo for this post. I know all about blog swinging. Sometimes I do that instead of sleeping!

Sunshinemom said...

Yes I do! Coming here from Helen's just because the name sounded interesting - and I am so glad the blog is too:)

Relyn said...

I have been calling it following the candy trail. But, I love your term - blog swinging.

Hajar said...

Been doing a lot of it these days. Guess the curiosity got to this cat. :)
