i wonder if: constant comment

i wonder what might happen if...
i comment on every blog i visit

i've been thinking about this for a while...
once per week
i am going to pick one day &
i'm going to leave a comment on
every blog i visit that day...
& since i tend to visit the same ones over & over
i'm going to choose one blog
(maybe one i visit daily, maybe random)
& visit the blogs that they have on their sidebar
& comment on every one...

i'm not sure what this will accomplish
or if it will accomplish anything
but i do know that i tend to visit blogs
& just look around
& sometimes i comment
but more often than not i don't
& for me that is just silly...
i know what it takes to write a post
& choose a picture
& i love it when someone comments
whether they are frequent visitors
or they just found me by clicking here & there...

i also think that it might be a bit of a challenge
because usually those lists are a bit random...
cause you want to put the blogs you love to read
but then there's also your cousin
who has a blog dedicated to her kitty
& doesn't uncle ed have a blog about nascar?
(you can't leave out uncle ed)
& so i will get to be creative
& possibly try to find something good to comment on
when there may be nothing at first glance
(look deeper!)
& so there it is
my first 'i wonder if '...

i will report back & let you know how it goes
& if you end up trying it
let me know what you think
goofy or great?

& off i go...

ps i think i might limit myself to doing this
on just 10 blogs at a time to start
so i don't get burned out...
but if it's super fun
i will allow myself to do more
(nice of me to be flexible with myself, huh? :)

UPDATE: that was really fun!
i got to see so many new blogs
(one in french, even!)
& i bookmarked a few to
go see again...
i used the 'check out' list on the
sugar city journal blog
& it was great...
i am going to do this again for sure!

who knew?!

What a great idea! I agree about blog-posting being so much more thrilling when you get comments. Think of all those smiles you are making for the bloggers!

Plus, way to do something you've been thinking about for a while!

Love your blog, was looking for mentions of Constant Comment Tea (because our company works for Bigelow Tea) but found your blog a treat as well!
Keep on blogging and commenting....!

Привет. Странаня ситуация, пытаюсь зайти на блог, меня постоянно выкидывает. Сейчас зашел через прокси и все нормально. Можно попросить разблокировать ип адрес
Так уже с недели две не могу попасть со своего ип в блог.
