Give a comment, receive a comment...

Hi everyone! Many of you are probably familiar with this idea from SCS but since not everyone is a member of SCS thought I'd give it a try here and have also added a fun new twist! The idea is basically to give a comment, receive a comment as well as become a follower, gain a follower except multiply this by 10, 100 or however many are willing to join in the fun!!!

To get started we first form a group with as many bloggers as possible then we'll visit each other over a 10 day period to leave some love and become followers. For example, on day 1 we'll visit and become followers of all the blogs with links ending in the number 1 (i.e. 1, 11, 21, 31, 41, 51, etc.) On day 2 we'll visit and become followers of all the blogs with links ending in the number 2 and so on. To keep things simple let's say day 1 is January 1, 2011.

If you are interested in joining in the fun simply enter your name using the linky widget below. You will have until midnight on December 31st to join in the fun (see linky widget below for remaining time to enter). Please link using your main blog URL so we are able to see your most recent posts when visiting, thank you and enjoy!  This post will remain at the top until then, please scroll down for daily posts!

Shelly Schmidt said...

Great way to discover other bloggers Karen! Thanks for starting this link!

bunny said...

Wow this sounds fun. will have a go..:)

Christine aka blankiefinder said...

Great idea, Karen! Are you going to limit the number of entries to keep it manageable? If it hits 500 entries, that would be a lot of blogs to hit each day (50, right?)

Kras said...

Hi Karen,
How interesting you invented it. With us it's raining heavy snow. Let's followers are numerous as snowflakes outside. Happy Holidays.

Lila Castro said...

Wonderful idea. Thanks for starting this link!

Christine aka blankiefinder said...

We are having a very quiet New Year's Eve here, so I went ahead and did day 1's (It's already the first in most of the world, after all!) Link #71 didn't work for me. Other than that, I'm all done all of the ones ending in 1!

Marjo said...

Great idea, I missed out..didn't know you were up and running again...wah wah

Good Luck Marjo

Karen said...

Brilliant idea and I joined it early! SO much easier to comment on a few each day rather than go through the whole lot. SO many beautiful ideas and inspiration. Thanks everyone for sharing. Karen x

Linda w said...

Just made all my first day of visits, so much fun, looking forward to tomorrow. Hugs lin

Christine aka blankiefinder said...

Oh man, someone deleted an entry, now all of them after that have changed numbers!!

Now I'm a one, but anyone that already went through would have done others, just like all the ones I did after are now messed up.

Dana said...

Well, I am going to be one of the odd ones and try to get as many done as I can today as I recooperate from New Years Eve while watching a NCIS marathon!! Woo Hoo!!
Thanks ladies for putting together this awesome event!!
Hugs~
Dana

Christine aka blankiefinder said...

If anyone else has to go back and redo theirs, the deleted number had to be between #41 and #51, so all of the ones above 41 have been changed since when I did mine in the wee hours of the morning.

Jagusia said...

Great idea, so many wonderful blogs!
Thank you for the possibility to visit such a lovely places :)

Linda w said...

Well day two took a bit longer with having to go back and do those I missed because of the switchback lol. How's complaining, I'm having a great time. Hugs lin

Barbara said...

Wow!! This is taking too long...that's because I have to read each blog. I marvel at all the creative crafters there are!!! I now have so many new ideas. Thanks for sponsoring this following...I love it and love having everyone visit my blog.

Scrap It Girl said...

Ok, I did the ones that ended with a 0,1,2 tomorrow I'll do the 3's & 4's. I hope I didn't miss anyone.. I tried to mark them off as I went. Thanks for doing this.

Claudia Rosa ~ Pretty Pressings said...

i joined in as well and hopped to the blogs that were linked
I want to join next time and i wonder
is the challenge always open just for 24 hours to sign in?

Thank you
Claudia

Josie0602 said...

This is such fun! I have already gained so many wonderful followers! Thank you so much everyone!

Mari K. said...

OK, this is my 4th attempt at day 2, I keep getting sidetracked by blog candies!! I'm having a great time though.

E.T said...

WOW! i couldnt believe my eyes when I saw hell loads of comments!!!! THANK YOU EVERYONE! Thanks for thinking of this brilliant idea!

Cindy2 said...

This little exercise is just filled with inspiration - thanks for allowing us to visit with blogs we normally don't see. C2

Shelly Schmidt said...

Iam getting lots of inspiration, but also very confused- the numbers have changes in the 50's as well, so trying to visit by numbers is getting all 'out of whack'! This is a fantastic idea though....lots of great blogs I have never been to before. Thanks for organizing Karen.

Lisa Oliver said...

Please correct my link. #74 Lisa Oliver corrected link is www.stampingwithamission.blogspot.com
Thank you!

Christine aka blankiefinder said...

Hi Shelly,

That's right around where the initial deletion occured. Inlinkz has now changed it so that after the collection closes, you can no longer delete your link, only the collection owner could delete at that point. So the numbers should no longer change at all.

Claudia Rosa ~ Pretty Pressings said...

hi... i might have forgotten to share my link???

Dear Karen

I just had to stop back to thank you so much for hosting this party! I have been meeting so many wonderful people through Feline Playful! Like so many others, I hate for the fun to stop, and I hope we are able to do this again often!
