One thing leads to another…
When I link a post to a challenge on someone else’s blog, I usually try to comment on at least 10 other posts.
…since I have nine siblings, it’s easy to pick posts according to our birthdates
…or, if there are enough participants, I use birth years (though it’s rare to find a linkup that goes as high as 77, the birth year of my youngest brother)
…either way, I usually end up visiting a number of new sites along the way
Anyway…in addition to reading and commenting on posts, I make it a point to scan the buttons and badges featured on the bloggers’ sidebars and footers to see what they are up to in terms of online activities.
A recent discovery, found via Ma Vie Trouvee, is Vicki’s 2014 Grow Your Blog Party. Details of the event, scheduled for Saturday, January 25th, can be found here. The stated purpose of the event is to increase the number of followers one has but, honestly, I am more interested in a day devoted to exploring new-to-me sites and perhaps adding a few new blogs to my reading list.
I’ve signed up to participate and I hope some of my readers will as well…because, who can resist a badge as pretty as this one?
