Bloggity Goodness, or How the UCF isn't the Only One Who Makes Their Lives More Complicated for FUN

Saturday, October 24, 2009
Reader, commenter, and Northern Hot Chick Megan has recently turned me on to a round robin blogging activity called "Blog Share." From Megan's blog (because I'm too lazy to paraphrase):

The blog share is coming up. If you’re a blogger, you should definitely think about being part of it.

Have you ever wanted to blog about something — been DESPERATE to get a post out of your head — and yet felt that you shouldn’t, because people know who you are? Blog Share is your opportunity to publish that post.

Here’s how it works:

1) People from all over the Internet sign up with -R-. She collects all of the names and assigns swap buddies.

2) You write the post that reveals your deepest, darkest secrets. Or that would really annoy your husband. Or that is just totally out of character for your own site. Whatever.

3) Your post is published on another blog. That same day, you publish someone else’s secret post.

That’s really all there is to it. It’s great fun. -R- provides a list of all of the participants, so you’ll be able to read all of the posts. For those who are into such things, it’ll get you more traffic and link love, and it will probably bring you some new subscribers.

I know what I’m going to blog about. It is not really a secret, but it is something I feel I cannot post here. I am looking forward to writing it.

If this sounds like something you’d like to try, let -R- know.

For the first time, Hot Chicks Dig Smart Men will be participating in Blog Share, and I encourage the rest of you to consider it, too. Sounds interesting. And fun. And possibly libelous. C'mon - you know you can't resist the temptation to be libelous. Oh, wait...that would be ME.

My intertoobs seem to be a little clogged this morning so the links are misbehaving (for me at least). But this all sounds like grand fun, so I'll give it a look later.

Yay Libel!

There are things you don't feel you can share with us?

It's always a ton of fun.

Hmm... Sounds interesting. I have things I don't say on my blog, but I don't really think I've been dying to post about them. I do have a secret blog (that only members - me - can view) that I've sometimes posted to, but I haven't done that in years.

That sounds like fun! (So very many things I can't post on my own blog -- how will I choose?)

Interesting idea. And it happens every six months? Maybe I'll sign up for the next one. ;)

They need to get some more people close to my demographic, or I'll stand out like a sore thumb if I talk about work. :(

John, the obvious answer, of course, is blog about something else.

That's what I'm here for - to add value in this way.

Hehe.

Talking about something else is what the other place is for. :pi
