I'm always in the market for new blogfriends.

Don't get me wrong, dearies - you are all tres entertaining. But there's always room for a new perspective, eh?

Everyone I currently interact with I've found through mooching off of James, Chelene, justacoolcat, etc.

Well, I'm interesting and extroverted, dammit! I can find my own blogfriends too.

So here's what I did. I clicked on "Next Blog". I kept clicking past all the Cialis spams, the morons, the sporadic posters, and one functional yet slightly frightening schizophrenic. I found someone intelligent with stimulating things to write about. I started commenting on his posts. I linked to his blog on mine.

While the guy was at least polite enough to respond to my comments, he never reciprocated by commenting on any of my posts. I bet he didn't even look at my blog.


He's off my links now.

But, if at first you don't succeed....

I'm giving it another shot. Wish me luck.

I stopped clicking "Next Blog" after someone's site gave me a virus. There's a lot of crap to wade through just to find someone worthwhile. But good luck!

Want to meet lots of weird and varied people? Go down my blogroll. Seriously. Take three hours, and go down and comment on EVERY blog on my blogroll. Then, when you're done, tell me which links need to be fixed. Thanks! :)

Every time I press the "next blog" I get porn.

Chel, a lot of crap, tell me about it. But a virus - eek!

Snay - um, sure, I'll get right on that one. :)

Tanya - admit it - you just like to look for porn! ;)

I have to admit "Next Blog" is how I do business once a week. It's how I found that weird friend of yours "James". Back then I beleive he referred to me as his "One Random Commenter".

Oten if I see a blog I like using Next I'll then read someone that writes good comments on their blog.

If that fails I hope for porn.

Inconsiderate non-reciprocating blogger bastards! Now theres a theme post... ;)

Well, hell. I guess I was more interesting than I thought. Thanks for the comment, mur! :)

Cat - good to know, thanks! Apparently it works better than I thought it did.
